Interesting

I read the book with great interest. Usually one would first read the title story. Honestly title story was disappointing. What does author want to imply in this story could not be understood.

Pleasant Experience! Well written and Interesting.

The book is extremely well written. The book encompasses stories from across the globe. Subject matters are varied and revolve around lives and experiences of Indians from different geographies. Language is good and narrative is well composed. Occasionally one gets sense that some of the stories could have done without "Indian" characters. Overall a good read. Highly recommended.
