    Don't think twice,buy it :D

    For all you Ruskin Bond lovers,this is an absolute treat and you need no reason whatsoever to order it. It's always nice to own a copy of your favourite author's best works,to read as and when you wish.
    For young,the middle aged,and the old,you can never have enough of Ruskin Bond. And add to that a discount of Rs.200...its reason enough to buy it.
    The only problem is a few misspelt words like "Ali'' becomes 'Ili' and 'sometime' becomes 'somet ime' in a few places,but that's nothing to worry ...

    Nice Collection

    In B type cities like Vizag, most of the books you have to purchase in MRP! Also the right thing you may not get after long search. Nice fulfillment for my Daughter's appetite for good book also in good price.

    Wonderful

    A book worthy of buying . It is indeed the 'best' works of Ruskin Bond.
    They are very relatable.
    The Package that I got was in good condition and I got it earlier than the delivery date.
    The book's real price is rupees 500 , so I got it really in a reasonable price.
    I would have loved a bookmark with it. -⭐
    Overall amazing book .
