Short stories that cover all emotions !!
Since last year, I am getting a hang of reading short stories. And because of authors like Vinayak Nadkarni I appreciate them, as they say a LOT in just short.
This book consists of 12 short stories, each different from other one and leaves you in a different state of mind and feelings.
The author has made sure, that the language is lucid and easy to understand. But the stories are added with a different twist every time. There are suspense or twist added to most of the stories, and I loved enjoying this as a thriller or major suspense comes out in that end. The narration is simple yet it has the effect to keep the reader on edge till the end comes.
The cover is unique, and it intrigued me that those unique elements will be used in the stories. Some stories had those unique elements that the cover is made of, alas some were missing. I wished if everything the cover had been in the book.
I liked quiet a few stories, Flirting which was author’s first story and was published in 2012 by Penguin India.
Another favorite is A Repechage Love story which shows how people can go to extend for loving someone *loving first love*
Diwali bonus, takes you in mind of people of a family when a bonus comes.
The Results, gave me goosebumps. The story of every student, who has to go under pressure of performing good in exams. Made me cry.
My most favorite is A Second Date, it kept me wishing a happy ending to this, be a happy end. It’s story about two people who get arranged for a marriage, but instead they play an interesting game and let the fate decide the end.
Final Note :
If you are looking for a short read, or want to get out of reading slump this one is perfect. As this is fast paced, and have many emotions with each story. Go Grab It, if you don’t like reading short stories, this one can be the first one you will love.
I would like to thanks Author for providing me the book in return of an honest feedback.
