The Lost Story has two protagonists. The first is Sandy, a young and aspiring writer blessed with the rare opportunity to work with his idol, who is none other than the second protagonist, Saleem Afzal. Saleem is a Booker Prize winner whose life is shadowed by a mysterious past.
The chief premise of the book lies in the unique challenge that they undertake, which decrees that they each write one half of their stories and hand it over to the other to finish. When this fascinating task begins, there is some vortex of excitement for every reader, no matter in what genre their interest may lie. The stories that they write are anything but similar, as two sets of imaginations are set loose over no boundaries. The tales include those of sinister apparitions, haunted houses, the apocalypse, a homeward journey which turns chaotic, a terrorist and his mentor, two ill-fated brothers, an office romance, and the poignant story of an old man who is ignored in a cafe.
During his time with his Idol, Sandy starts to notice some signs that set off a series of puzzling questions in his mind. He is curious about the locked door in Saleem’s house and what might lie behind it. He is also intrigued by Saleem’s last book, The Lost Story, and ponders ceaselessly over what it is about. He wonders what happened to Saleem while he was writing it and what prevented him from finishing it.
The novel culminates in an unexpected ending, as the pressing secrets around Saleem’s life are finally unraveled.
The book was released on February 27, 2012, and falls under the category of fiction. It has an unprecedented style, and has received a very positive critical reception.

A Box Full of SurprisesLike a box of assorted sweets, with the taste of each one surpassing the other, âThe Lost Storyâ by Amit Goyal and Sudhanshu Gupta is a collection of vigorous, sharp and often darkly morbid short stories intertwined very intricately with the main plot. With an intriguing concept and one-writes-one-half style of writing, the book makes the reader go through a whirlwind of emotions right from the opening story âThe Huntâ and the ride thereafter becomes interesting still. A very detailed and life-like portrayal of the characters, successfully binds the readers to them and while the storie… (Expand)

This will blow your mind..This book is the work of genius. There is not even 1 single line in the book which is not interesting. Though there are multiple stories in the book there is no single instant which make us feel disconnected from the main story. Both the authors have done such a fantastic job that it has taken the level of Indian author's to much high position. Hat's off to the authors.. Hoping to read some more such kinda books from you both.. Thumps up for the great work :)

Stories within stories... an interesting ideaI like the fact there are lots of stories in the book, but the best part is that they do not feel disconnected, as they all tie into the central plot of the book. I also liked how different the stories are from each other, but they all come together in the overall experience.

The Labyrinth ChroniclesI'd never read the work of an Indian author before being the skeptic I am but I finally got my first book and quite literally did not put it down until Iâd read the very last word. Honestly, it was worth the blood shot eyes when the sun came calling the next morning.

For those who didn't get the book!!I have never been a big fan of contemporary Indian English writers (exceptions galore though!). Their stories have been what you call a time-pass stuff - what you read during a train journey or any other time when you don't want to exert your mind. nothing bad in that, except maybe they don't cater to something that you really crave for- to break out of the usual rigmarole ,to disrupt the status quo, to get out of usual comfort zone and think, get provoked, contemplate, and realize. The Indian authors simply try to titillate the audience, telling them what they want to hear, showing them what … (Expand)

Simple yet Brilliant!!What is âThe Lost Storyâ? Is it a thriller? Is it a comedy? Is it a romantic novel? After reading the book, I concluded it is all and none of the above.

TrippyReading the book reminded me of the first time I read Catcher In The Rye.

Great Book!I have just one word for it - unputdownable!

Something Nice :)The book was refreshing, a different approach to story telling. The concept was tempting enough to buy. May be some readers would not like the book as the endings were pretty quick and sometimes left you frustrating. For me it was a pleasant read as I wasn't expecting any happy endings and was fascinated by the twists introduced by two completely different writers.
