    couldn't be more different?

    Hello,

    The sentence goes like this.

    "They write about the same things that I write about: love, race, identity, place, history and its effect on the present. Yet their stories couldn't be more different from mine."

    I'm a bit confused about the second sentence.
    Does it mean 'their stories are same as mine" or "far different"?
    It would be very helpful if you could paraphrase it in an easier way.

    Always thank you for your help.

    "In spite of the fact that they write about the same things as I do, their stories are as different as it is possible to be from my own."
