The VD Anthology is a well-put-together work of art. The authors all did a great job with their respective stories. The aspect of the book which excited me the most was about how the importance of breakfast, also liked the way the act of going against slavery highlighted the importance of showcasing your talents and skills. I particularly found touching, the story of the man who was dying and needed help, and nobody stepped up to help him until the most unlikely person stood up to the task. It shows that we get help from people in the unlikeliest of places. I love how different aspects of life were touched in these stories. They all contained different lessons which got me thinking after I dropped this book. The VD Anthology is a beautiful piece of work.
There is nothing I disliked about this book. I love the way the author was able to merge important issues such as how to live peacefully, how to maintain love in a family, and speaking up against the evil of slavery with seemingly little things such as the importance of breakfast and building one's skills and talents.
I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. I enjoyed reading this book and I learned a lot of lessons from it.
I recommend this book to people who would like to widen their scope of reasoning and see life through the eyes of other people.
