You will jump in fright after finishing this

'The Other Side' promises to make the environment around you seem completely different than what you are accustomed to and I believe it delivers exactly that. I can't view certain things in the same manner ever again.
The book is disturbing, the way horror books are supposed to be and pleasantly so, because that is what a good horror reader thrives to find in a good horror book- the perfect fright! This book lives up to all the hype it has created in the market.
The stories initially will sho...

Scarily pleasant experience reading TOS

Here's a review of all the 13 stories in the book. Really enjoyed reading them all!

1) UNFULFILLED DESIRES- 3.5 stars. A story about a doc who is sent to handle a public health centre which is said to be haunted by the ghost of a girl who committed suicide there. Initially I thought it was too long, but once I got reading I thought it was just about ok. I wanted a little more closure and didn’t understand the doctor Rajiv's attraction to Poonam (I thought she needed more depth, or at the ver...

Fit for a scare fest kind of movie

The Other Side is one of the few books I believe should form essential reading for any horror fan. Not just because it is the biggest attempt so far in Indian literature market for this genre but also because of the content that it carries. Stories here have by all means, a ready market in themselves and can stand out on their own, independent of each other.
A single opinion can't influence thirteen stories in all, so I won't go into the details of what each story is like but would talk about...

Spent two sleepless nights after reading it

I did the mistake of starting to read this book at night. I could just make it past the foreword and then I was having second thoughts about my decision to read it at night but the writing was so gripping that I could not control my excitement and went on. Two stories down, I thought the shadows in the room were eyeing me and since I was alone that night, I decided to shut the book. I spent the entire night, biting my nails and jumping at sounds here and there.
Inspite of that, I continued r...

Bone chilling and scary

This scary book by Vivek Banerji and Faraz Kazi is about the line where the dead meet the living and what transpires then. The book is gripping, too over-gripping right from page one and I found myself wanting to go even when one story ended and time didn't permit me to move on to the next.
The stories aren't too long either. They are good quick reads that thrill and entertain to the maximum. In toto, there are 13 stories, some of the prominent ones being 'That Fateful Night', 'A Mother's Lov...

Highly recommended book that leaves a mark on the reader

A delightful collection of ghost stories full of otherworldly creatures. Here you'll find the traditional woman in a white sari ghost to the more moderner versions of vampires, werewolves and creepie-crawlies. While maintaining a black and white whimsical horror, the book lets out that campfire story telling kind of mode or read if you dare kind of challenges openly from the cover itself.
The writers have done a good job to research, document, fictionalise and write about ghost stories set in...

Fantastic Book That Will Amaze You

The Other Side by Kazi and Banerjee is an amazing piece of literature. Right from the time it starts with the brilliant Kazi lending his wordy marvels to the foreword to the time it ends with the shocking epilogue that you should at no cost read at night, the writing simply holds the reader in a vice-like grip.
All the stories are marvellous, some scary, some not so scary and some downright terrifying in terms of the fear quotient but all the stories for sure, leave a big impact on the reader...

Buy it for a perfect scare ride

There are very few horror collections where you will read and enjoy all the horror stories inside. I must say "The Other Side" is definitely one of them. The book is a horror lover's dream come true. It has everything they would want: spirits, demons, sceptic docs, howling werewolves and disappearing women. The book is mildly erotic at junctures but pleasantly so, not the deliberately inserted kind of erotic.
It's not fair to list my favourite stories, I believe because on reflecting I could ...

Out and out entertainer. More than just horror.

One of the earliest promos of the book claimed it to be the biggest attempt in Indian horror fiction, and that got my attention. I thought a little, and realized they weren't too wrong. Indian fiction is bereft of horror, though there is nothing to suggest that Indians don't enjoy a good scare. The Other Side has brought many themes of horror, some popular, others new, and executed them with sincerity. Some stories scare, some intrigue, others entertain, and that is what works for the book. I...

Enthralled and in awe of Faraaz Kazi

Brought this book after seeing what they proclaimed as the world's first animated cover for a book. The video was both exciting and creepy and set my interest rolling in this collection of horror tales written by the stylish Faraaz Kazi.
Need less to say the book did not disappoint and turned out to be one of the better horror books I have ever read. It nowhere comes across align with the flaws of Indian writing which are very prominent in most of the books that come out today and hence I bel...
