    Description

    The Lost Story has two protagonists. The first is Sandy, a young and aspiring writer blessed with the rare opportunity to work with his idol, who is none other than the second protagonist, Saleem Afzal. Saleem is a Booker Prize winner whose life is shadowed by a mysterious past.

    The chief premise of the book lies in the unique challenge that they undertake, which decrees that they each write one half of their stories and hand it over to the other to finish. When this fascinating task begins, there is some vortex of excitement for every reader, no matter in what genre their interest may lie. The stories that they write are anything but similar, as two sets of imaginations are set loose over no boundaries. The tales include those of sinister apparitions, haunted houses, the apocalypse, a homeward journey which turns chaotic, a terrorist and his mentor, two ill-fated brothers, an office romance, and the poignant story of an old man who is ignored in a cafe.

    During his time with his Idol, Sandy starts to notice some signs that set off a series of puzzling questions in his mind. He is curious about the locked door in Saleem’s house and what might lie behind it. He is also intrigued by Saleem’s last book, The Lost Story, and ponders ceaselessly over what it is about. He wonders what happened to Saleem while he was writing it and what prevented him from finishing it.

    The novel culminates in an unexpected ending, as the pressing secrets around Saleem’s life are finally unraveled.

    The book was released on February 27, 2012, and falls under the category of fiction. It has an unprecedented style, and has received a very positive critical reception.

    A Box Full of Surprises

    Like a box of assorted sweets, with the taste of each one surpassing the other, â??The Lost Storyâ?? by Amit Goyal and Sudhanshu Gupta is a collection of vigorous, sharp and often darkly morbid short stories intertwined very intricately with the main plot. With an intriguing concept and one-writes-one-half style of writing, the book makes the reader go through a whirlwind of emotions right from the opening story â??The Huntâ?? and the ride thereafter becomes interesting still. A very detailed...

    This will blow your mind..

    This book is the work of genius. There is not even 1 single line in the book which is not interesting. Though there are multiple stories in the book there is no single instant which make us feel disconnected from the main story. Both the authors have done such a fantastic job that it has taken the level of Indian author's to much high position. Hat's off to the authors.. Hoping to read some more such kinda books from you both.. Thumps up for the great work :)

    Stories within stories... an interesting idea

    I like the fact there are lots of stories in the book, but the best part is that they do not feel disconnected, as they all tie into the central plot of the book. I also liked how different the stories are from each other, but they all come together in the overall experience.

    The book builds up really well to an interesting conclusion. I was also intrigued by the fact that the stories were started and ended by two different people, without any discussion between them. That, I feel really add...

    The Labyrinth Chronicles

    I'd never read the work of an Indian author before being the skeptic I am but I finally got my first book and quite literally did not put it down until Iâ??d read the very last word. Honestly, it was worth the blood shot eyes when the sun came calling the next morning.

    This one is a story inside a story inside a story and itâ??s not one of your usual predictable works of fiction where you know how the story ends even before it begins. Here with every story you want to ask, â??What happens ne...

    For those who didn't get the book!!

    I have never been a big fan of contemporary Indian English writers (exceptions galore though!). Their stories have been what you call a time-pass stuff - what you read during a train journey or any other time when you don't want to exert your mind. nothing bad in that, except maybe they don't cater to something that you really crave for- to break out of the usual rigmarole ,to disrupt the status quo, to get out of usual comfort zone and think, get provoked, contemplate, and realize. The India...

    The Lost Story

    I bought the book after reading raving reviews and was hoping for a good read once I received the book . Unfortunately I have not been able to connect the dots and found there was no connectivity and it seems to be a mixed up bunch of various narrations . The story lines keep jumping from one location / extreme to another and it required an Herculian effort to keep track of what had happened before and what was happening now .

    Mind boggling

    It is one those few books that will blow your mind off.
    It is awesome and it get better and better towards the end.
    You will have goosebumps while your tend to reach the end of the book. It is emotionally overwhelming. The books so gripping that you wont let it go for once even if you have to answer the nature's call.

    I have read many books but this is first time I am forced to write a review about such an amazing book. I guess it is first of its kind to be written by Indian Authors. It is...

    Simple yet Brilliant!!

    What is â??The Lost Storyâ??? Is it a thriller? Is it a comedy? Is it a romantic novel? After reading the book, I concluded it is all and none of the above.

    When I noticed that the authors were MBAs, I thought the plot would revolve around campus life or post- MBA life, involving a group of friends â?? one of whom is â??the party animalâ??, one who is â??the bright oneâ?? and the one with whom we all would relate to â?? â??the average Joeâ??. â??The Lost Storyâ?? deviates from this stereoty...

    Trippy

    Reading the book reminded me of the first time I read Catcher In The Rye.

    Trippy - Thats the word to describe The Lost Story. The multiple stories were crazy in their own ways - sometimes spooky, sometimes plain hilarious but always gripping. And the main story, that connected it all, clearly was the winner amongst all!

    To enjoy The Lost Story you don't need to grasp or hold onto every story, but you'll not forget any of the stories.

    The book leaves you wondering what if every situation...

    Great Book!

    I have just one word for it - unputdownable!

    It's a mix of brilliant short stories all lodged into a very intriguing main story. A very novel concept!

    What makes it even more interesting is that there are apparently two authors who have written the storied - which reflects in the twists in the stories.

    A Must Read!
