Fascinating read!

Just when you thought it couldn't get better, we are smacked with a collection of bold, spell binding tales of urban lives and the chaos that surroundz us. Its hard to pick a best story here...every other one is a winner! Can't wait to read Bright Lights and Urban Shots Love Collection. This one really raises the bar with so many different writers and themes.

Utterly disappointing

I have gone through 5 stories and found just one somewhat interesting , remaining all are just sheer boring.. I shall be putting some more review soon after going through more stories.

But any one planning to by a short stories should stay away from this.
A far far better and superb collection...
