  • Description

    The best of a lifetime of stories from a short story writer of rare distinction.

    Ruskin Bond???s stories are predominantly set in the beautiful hill country of Garhwal where he has made his home for the last twenty-five years. Some of these stories present people who, consciously or otherwise, need each other: people in love or in need of love, the awkward adolescent and the timid lover. Some are gently satirical studies about village and small-town braggarts and petty officials.

    Several others mourn the gradual erosion of the beauty of the hills (and the gentle people who live in them) with the coming of the steel and dust and worries of modern civilization. All the stories are rewarding for their compassionate portrayal of love, loss, accomplishment,

    For those who love the simple things in life!

    This was the first Ruskin Bond book that I bought and after that I've started collecting his books. This book has short simple stories...specially, stories of longing...stories which melt your heart. The book will be liked by those who love the simple things in life, those who love nature. I'm now a fan of Ruskin Bond!

Each story is a journey that hits you directly in your heart and you will find a sweet smile emerging on your face or sometimes a drop of tear in your eyes .

    Wonderful

    Overall the product I received was good but the packaging was very poor (less than expected)and also didn't got the bookmark. But let's talk about the content, which I feel is very interesting and calming, who all love hills, mountains, traveling,peace will surely love it.. just go for it and one more advice that buy the books from the seller whose rating is good..

    A book that makes you nostalgic and happy

    There is something about Ruskin Bond that takes you back in time.He brings back memories of your childhood, the first girl you loved and interesting characters you met.
    His stories will fascinate anyone who loves the hill stations with their clean air and gentle populace.

    A colourful box of sweets

    A classic Bond lover will love it no matter what. Beautiful, short tales from hills. One is transported to the evergreen world of Bond. Every story is similar at times but has its on flavour. Has few sweet love stories, stories of life, stories of death, stories unheard lives. Ruskin Bond is the eternal bachelor and champion of solitude.

    Small stories, a bit less impressive for Ruskin Bond

    I found the stories good but not good enough for the likes of Ruskin Bond.
    Stories travel in a smooth phase, nice characterization but due to several short stories fail to make an impression.
