Short Stories by Franz Kafka – Review

August 15, 2018 • By

Franz Kafka’s short stories are always amazing to read. There is no doubt about it that Kafka’s influence on English Literature (with the help of translations) can ever be reduced. Much is not known about his life and habits but the least we know, we can be sure that the gentleman was more a man of words than sentences (most powerful). Longer short stories or writings might be well but the shorter short stories of Franz Kafka were always more powerful and more impactful than anything else he wrote. This Sunday, I thought to read his short stories and pulled out the classic edition from my medium-height book shelve. And then, the excursion began.READ MORE

Uske Hisse Ka Pyar – book review

December 8, 2017 • By

Uske Hisse Ka Pyar is a short story collection authored by a popular Gujarati author Ashish Dalal. Though already having a share of his name in the Hindi literature by writing for various magazines and newspapers, Ashish Dalal has made his debut with this collection in the field of formal writing. This is the very first book but you will seldom get that fee while reading Uske Hisse Ka Pyar. The book just transports you to a different world and all the short stories are so well written that it becomes difficult for the readers to read the book in patches… it might just take a person 3-4 hours or even lesser than that in finishing all the 17 short stories in one go!READ MORE

Becuase of the simple language used in the stories, the narrative is very much close to the day-to-day human life and readers can easily relate to the stories in the book.READ MORE

Monsoon Minds

April 17, 2017 • By

There are the books which we read for the first time and become a fan of those… whispering tacitly to the author to write more like this. Recently, I have come across such a book called Monsoon Minds. This is a book of short stories. The collection offers to the readers a total of eighteen short stories which are mostly based on the wide experience that the author Ravi Nambiar seems to have accumulated in his life journey. The stories tell of death; the stories celebrate life; the stories mourn lost love and move ahead; the stories ask tough questions to the society… the stories, in short, are fully animated and moving. READ MORE
