    Description

    Labyrinth: Short Stories is an array of fifteen tales that cover genres like adventure, romance, paranormal, fantasy, history, and many more.

    Summary Of The Book

    Labyrinth: Short Stories, published in 2012, is a collection of fifteen short stories written by various Indian authors. Each tale belongs to a different genre and era, thereby giving this book a unique and refreshing feel. Labyrinth: Short Stories starts off with The Martyr, which has been written by Mainak Dhar. It revolves around young Kemal who finds himself in the middle of a war in Afghanistan. Puppet Show, by Aditi Chincholi, explains how a doctor cannot find a way to break a spell that has been cast over the natives of a valley.

    Bagheera Log Huts takes readers into the heart of an Indian jungle, where the search for a wild cat turns into an unexpected adventure. Shawn Pereira’s I'll Be Back describes an out-of-body experience, which shows how things can take a downward spiral when one is caught in the wrong place, at the wrong time. Aditi Chincholi’s second story, Sym World, is set in a fantasy land which the protagonist Kyoto has willingly entered, but cannot find a way out. In Mortified, written by Jeevan Varma, readers will find themselves in a small Indian township where a mortified Sharmaji is going to be attacked. This is followed by Crashing Impacts, a tale of love and sacrifice that spans almost ten years.

    Rishabh Chaturvedi’s The Night Of The Wokambee describes how Revant is in a quandary when a strange creature visits his house every night. Both Mists of Time by Niharika Puri, and Russkaya Rulyetka by Shawn Pereira, illustrate how a person makes impulsive decisions when he is overcome with rage and jealousy. Candies shows readers that the pursuit of love is filled with ups and downs. Travel Through The Night, authored by Rishabh Chaturvedi, follows the protagonist into dense sugarcane plantations, where he encounters strange spirits who block his path. A Day of Battle is set during the great epic battle of the Mahabharata, and the author Abhishek Dwivedi shares stories of the bravery of some of the best warriors that this world has ever seen. The next story, Farming On Facebook by Sushant Dharwadkar, takes a huge time leap, and shows how the present generation is unaware of the real world, as their focus lies only on the screens in front of them.

    Some stories are bang on!

    An author is an author, and a story is a story, whether first or last. So not commenting on first time writers. Overall the book is interesting. The best part of the book is its genre. There isn’t any. Its like a free bird that takes you places. Its fun to read such a book. Because you are not aware what genre will you read in the next story. Some stories are bang on.Like

    inspired from movies

    Well most of the stories are an extention or carries the feel of old watched movies. When you read you get a sense of deja-vu. Most of the stories starts on a nice premise but by the end appears to be half baked ideas. Like the story on which the title illustration is based losses the plot by the end. Not to de-motivate but nothing special about the stories or the writing.

    Interesting stories

    I finished this book quite quickly; and unlike most short story books, it kept me on my toes. 80 percent of the book is good (so 4 star rating). Though very entertaining, short story books are not very easy to find; and most are by Dahl, Manto, Ruskin Bond. This book has some brilliant stories by contemporary Indian writers. Its very fresh in the sense that there is nothing predictable in the book. It is a brave attempt to paint a very broad canvas, and surprisingly it does justice to it. Som...

    More value for less money!!! A must read...

    Finally a good book of short stories...The best part about "Labyrinth-short stories" is that there are 15 stories each belonging to a different genre. These stories have been written by everyday people like you and me like chefs, doctors, bankers,students , accountants...There is not a moment of boredom in this book as it twists and turns like a roller coaster. This is what i call a cult classic and a fresh change from the ususal IIT-IIM type of college urban romances... sincerely hope that t...

    Nothing to write home about

    For budding authors, Litizen provides a kickstart and platform. The ideas are good and more meat could have been added. For example, the Bagheera Log Huts, just when I thought the story is getting interesting, it lost plot and ended abruptly. I reckon the authors are not full time writers. Language is simple and lucid. Short stories and not very interesting. They have done good job, but a long way to go.

    This book is a no no for avid readers who enjoy long novels.
