Okay-ish read

Wanted to buy a book which I can read while traveling. Good read. But not that great. Okay if you read once.

A good read

I read this collection of short stories and was impressed by many of the stories featured. Specially those written by Paritosh Uttam. It has a variety of subjects to impress upon all its reader. A friend of mine opposite to my taste in books found it equally enjoyable.

Urban shots-a collection of short stories

Urban shots has proved to be example of a failed experiment. The stories except 2-3 are not at all entertaining. The cover is great with excellence of Westland publishers that this book could reach to a great number of readers.

Dissapointing

Though there are few good stories, on the whole this is a disappointing book. Some stories are too short, they get over even before you realize what happened. Most of the stories give u a cringe-worthy feeling after u read it because nothing happens in it. Some stories like 'Heartbreakers' and 'Between Friends' are so ordinary that you would feel like even you can write better stories. Many of them are so cliched and also like abridged version of some bollywood movie.

But do give due credit there are some good well written stories as well. Most of the stories in the 'angst' section are nice a

Paisa Vasool

Its a wonderful connection of stories that are very visual in description and are very real. The writers do well to paint a vivid picture of urban India with stories of love, infidelity, friendship and the chaos in our lives.

Nice Collection Of Small Stories

A canvas portraying fragments of everyday city lives from all over India, This book is a collection of 29 stories on relationships, love, friendship, angst & longing and I believe this book is worth every penny.

"LIBERATION" was best!!

The only story that stands out in this book is titled "Liberation". Amazing writing which will keep you hooked. At one point in the story, you may end up laughing like a maniac!! The rest of the short stories are OK and actually not that great.

Gift For Your Enemy!

Its a horrible collection. Not one story is worth being printed (but some are better than others by simple collection.) The stories need to be added with details and they give a very poor, half-hearted picture of urban india.

IF YOU HAVE NOT PURCHASED THIS DON'T BUY! but if you have then:

1. Gift it to your cruel boss on his bday. And ruin it :)

2. Use it to fight off eve teasers or salesman or robbers (list is endless).

3. IF YOU ARE A STOCKIST. USE IT to sell AS FODDER.

Avoidable

Avoidable, the stories are amateurish, though a couple or so are engaging and competent enough.
On completion felt like questioning the authors whether they were specifically asked to write stories relating to infidelity? Or is it an exclusive/necessarily urban concept?
Someone looking for something to read on a train journey or in the car and having 100 bucks or so to spare might wish to pick it up though, in other words, timepass reading.

Light read

First things first, it is worth the money... Some stories are heart warming while some are shallow and pointless...All in all the stories are urban anecdotes about relationships, the kind you get to hear when you are with a group of friends. Time taken for each story is hardly 10-20 minutes which makes it a good option for daily commute. But if you already have read a lot of classics and loads of chicken soup for the soul, the book may not be the best pick.

Don't judge a book by its cover!

Don't judge a book by its cover- this phrase perfectly suits the book"
the publisher are trying to sell the copy by its cover page(the only best part of the book),a very nice strategy as the publishers knew the content of the book is not worth selling.
The book as a whole is very disappointing,most of the stories are just average(as one of story titled in the book)


As mentioned by the other reader,stories from angst section scores some point & my personal favourite is just average.
