Beschreibung:

It would be appropriate to call this collection of short-stories Mumbai Dreams, as the seeds for most of the stories were sown there. These short stories strike an interesting balance between the characters and their experiences and vividly express the lateral thinking of the author. The collection includes a motley set of human feelings like sarcasm, suspense, humour, emotion, etc. with stories on college life, science fiction, family plots and school life, amongst others. This collection of stories is targeted at every age group, right from youngsters to elders. The plots have been framed in such a way that it would be possible for every reader to associate himself with some character or the other. One of the most important characteristics that the author wishes to highlight is the ?twists? that have been intertwined suitably in the stories. ?The Kleptomaniac?, ?The X-Phenomenon?, ?The College Rider?, ?The Auto Freak? and such other stories are examples of what may be called ?O? Henry Twists? These twists enhance the overall reading interest and make sure that the readers feel reluctant to put the book down. ?The X-Phenomenon? and ?The Mysterious Maid? belong to the science fiction category which deals with the world of robots and will be found very humorous to read. It is certain that the book will receive warm welcome from the lovers of literature particularly those having keen interest in fiction. Printed Pages: 104. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 24859
