Just Simple Little Cruelties by Osman Welela 

Title - Just Simple Little Cruelties 
Author - Osman Welela 
Published - Sept '16
Publisher - Smashword Ed. 
ISBN - 9781370031306

This book consists of a few short stories mostly about climate change and the effects it will have on the future. The book also contains a collection of poems after each short story. 

I enjoyed the poetry in this book very much. This book was a quick and easy read. The short stories didn't really take my fancy, I felt maybe if one of the short stories had been taken and made longer, alongside the poetry then the book would have worked a lot better. 

However, like I said I really enjoyed the poetry, I found the poems to be really thought-provoking and very interesting and me for it is the poems that made this book worth reading. 

Thank You to the author for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
