Book Review


Rating: 4 / 5

ALL THE NAMES THEY USED FOR GOD by Anjali Sachdeva is a book that has been on my TBR for the last several months and it finally moved from my currently reading shelf to my read shelf! Finishing this book meant the completion of my 2019 Reading Women Challenge and it also wound up being my 250th book of the year finishing up my Goodreads reading challenge goal.

ALL THE NAMES THEY USED FOR GOD is a short story collection which provides a lot of unique and different stories. The stories are set in very different times and places. In one story seven identical sisters are born through scientific experiment, but there are unexpected and unexplained results. A man inhales glass shards after an accident which severely impacts his life. A race of aliens which look like unformed blobs takes over the world.

This collection was an interesting mix of stories. As with most story collections, some stories were ones I enjoyed more than others, but I really enjoyed the variety overall. There was quite a bit that mixed elements of advanced technology and the downsides on nature and/or the human body which I found really interesting to read about. I thought the writing was really good, especially given the variety in this collection.

This was Anjali Sachdeva’s debut collection and it really impressed me. I will be on the look out for more from her in the future! I’m glad I ended both my Goodreads reading goal and my Reading Women Challenge list on such a high note!
