    Title: “Puppet”
    Author: Murtaza Ali – Poet
    .
    “And He is not just the greatest well wisher
    But the greatest judge of our actions too.”
    -Murtaza Ali
    .
    Throughout the drive of “Puppet”, the reader will voyage through 120 pages, embracing different phases of life, being a “PUPPET”. The relatable poems just took the imagination high, and the short paragraphs are brilliantly penned.
    Every word takes one to the world magnificently portrayed. The rhymes were perfectly woven, and the metaphors brilliantly connect with reality. The journey through deep and vast vocabulary takes this book to another level. The vivid language instantly transported me into the world, along with the catchy and impressive poetry style.
    .
    “Puppet” dives through various life instances. How man learns harsh realities day by day, step by step, and how hope lightens up the dark, dull plans was explained beautifully. The cruelty of entangled, obscure fate was woven impressively. It symbolically covered the beauty of acceptance and facing rejection. It notably highlighted the love for Creator and His bounties.
    The leading factor behind our “I love you generation”, its facts and consequences were phenomenal. It threw light on the fact, of how our generation is approaching to fulfill the deficiencies of love they lack from their parent’s side.
    “Puppet” covers different states of hope and fantasies, the cruel behavior of fate and the blames encountered on the fate,
    And yet it stayed
    “-The confused Fate”.
    Recommendation: YES
    Ratings: 9/10

    Apparently, Murtaza’s Puppet seems a collection of poems narrated adequately. However, the fact of the matter is that this anthology is an embodiment of multiple themes which encapsulate common aspects of human life and emotions in his unique style. While reading, one gets goosebumps with every single word. Moreover, his poems are sequenced in a manner to narrate a story of a child from his childhood to his adolescence and adulthood. The subject of his poems progresses in a complete cycle from childhood innocence to emotionally sensitive adolescence and finally towards his maturity and ripeness of his wisdom. Initially he begins with a carefree and curiously adventurous boy who is not scared of taking any risk and moves on without paying a heed to the fears of what people will say or think. The book then advances towards a more complex realities of human life. It reveals the amalgamation of joys and troublesome worries of the narrator and the youth in general. Narration of the lover’s heartbreak leaves the reader with moist eyes. The themes of the anthology are beaded in such a manner that it resonates with the lives of his readers. As for instance, in his poem “A Coffee Mug”, his nostalgia about the beloved leaves not just the lover but the readers with the suspicion about their reunion. He grasps the attention of the reader who feels curious to know what would happen next and hopes for their re-unification.
    The Puppet is kept eloquently simple, but thought-provokingly difficult to digest. I believe that the best aspect of this book is his use of short blank verse. The poet’s skillful representation of his subject in his anthology reveals his talent of knowing the worth of every single word. Additionally, he uses the figurative devices such as metaphors, similes and alliteration beautifully and adequately to bring out the desired effect of his work. For instance, his similes of swan, rose and queen for his beloved not only places his beloved at the throne of heavenly beauty but also shows poet’s sensitivity towards nature as well. Murtaza’s Puppet bring forth the element of spirituality and feelings of ecstasy, as in the line “Feeling ecstasy and rising riding the past winds” shows that the narrator has that spark which eventually will empower him to tame and ride the winds.
    As a matter of fact, I found this book very impressive because it teaches you how to lead better in life, instead of resentment and remorse. I highly appreciate Murtaza’s efforts in this book and recommend it as a good read. It is an interesting romance of youth, tragedy in a reality and a guide to seek maturity and wisdom.
