Stupid stories

Utter nonsense. how on earth stories like these get shortlisted for being published!
Most of these writers don't even know how to weave a short story, how to begin with and how to end!

The idea of 30 stories by 26 authors is what appealed to me. It is contrary to the trend of having a collection of stories from a single author. The book is quite interesting and a good page turner.

First to review

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.

I'll never recommend anybody to buy it. In fact if a friend sees this book in my book shelf and wants to borrow it, I'd recommend him not to waste his precious time reading these silly things.

Urbanshots- Crossroads

The idea of 30 stories by 26 authors is what appealed to me. It is contrary to the trend of having a collection of stories from a single author. The book is quite interesting and a good page turner. While books of RK Narayan and another writer from Andhra Pradesh Satyam's share us the melody and melancholy of olden days(read it as pre & post independence), the stories in this book help us recall our childhood days and make us feel nostalgic.

Personally I recommend to buy this.

A far far better and superb collection is - "Labyrinth: Short Stories" You can read my review there also.

I am just thanking that it is just 131 bucks only... not even worth that!! :-(

Delivary wise Flipkart again rocked.. super deilvary. Thats the way to go Flipkart.
