Each cab story is narrated by the author but all it says that how the cab driver was, how they were with her. 

The stories are beautiful as they tell what all they see and go through in a day – cab drivers meet hundreds of people a day and each person is different; some are inviting while others are just straight up rude, some are quiet while some are extremely chatty but some people just get in beautiful conversations with the drivers that it makes them remember each other.

For some, the author felt sympathetic while some drivers were way too relatable. Each story starts with the quote that justifies the situation marvellously then an image and then the story. Each story leaves a mark on the author and therefore became a part of the author’s book. 

The stories are so intriguing and a pleasant experience that even makes my heart move as a reader.
