This book is by Janhavi Acharekar. It is a collection of short stories.
Writing short stories is more difficult than novels… for the simple reason that in a novel you have more scope to engage a reader… even if the story lags in the middle the climax can make up for it… in a short story you have to transport the reader in 3-4 pages. It is like flying… the travel time is reduced but the cost increases.
The stories in this book are ok… not too great and not too bad. The effort is appreciated. I was not disappointed by the book ‘coz the expectations were nil and it did not make me go “Wow”.
Worth a read.
