    Fascinating read!

    Just when you thought it couldn't get better, we are smacked with a collection of bold, spell binding tales of urban lives and the chaos that surroundz us. Its hard to pick a best story here...every other one is a winner! Can't wait to read Bright Lights and Urban Shots Love Collection. This one really raises the bar with so many different writers and themes.

    Wonderful collection!

    The authors have exceeded themselves with this one. Its a wonderful collection that captures life and times in urban metros. Some stories are moving, some make you smile, some are haunting while few leave you gaping with awe. It keeps you turning pages till the end wishing there was more!

    Disappointing

    it is not a worth reading material!
    it looks like authors are somehow playing with the situations to make story ended!!

    Stupid stories

    Utter nonsense. how on earth stories like these get shortlisted for being published!
    Most of these writers don't even know how to weave a short story, how to begin with and how to end!
    Wake up Mr. Editor! Are you out of your mind?
    I'll never recommend anybody to buy it. In fact if a friend sees this book in my book shelf and wants to borrow it, I'd recommend him not to waste his precious time reading these silly things.

    Urbanshots- Crossroads

    The idea of 30 stories by 26 authors is what appealed to me. It is contrary to the trend of having a collection of stories from a single author. The book is quite interesting and a good page turner. While books of RK Narayan and another writer from Andhra Pradesh Satyam's share us the melody and melancholy of olden days(read it as pre & post independence), the stories in this book help us recall our childhood days and make us feel nostalgic.

    Personally I recommend to buy this.

    Utterly disappointing

    I have gone through 5 stories and found just one somewhat interesting , remaining all are just sheer boring.. I shall be putting some more review soon after going through more stories.

    But any one planning to by a short stories should stay away from this.
    A far far better and superb collection is - "Labyrinth: Short Stories" You can read my review there also.

    I am just thanking that it is just 131 bucks only... not even worth that!! :-(

    Delivary wise Flipkart again rocked.. super deilvary...

    Young & Refreshing

    I loved the book a lot. It's a superb collection of short stories, you feel connected to each and every story you read, bringing back certain memories. It's so much real, as if you are living your life the second time.
