Engrossing & Enjoyable! Even though I’m not very much of a short story person but still managed to finish the whole book over a weekend. Interest in one story led to another and so on. Things that I loved about this book:
- Intense emotions presented in such a simple language.
- Poignant plots, some of the stories never looked like initially could be concluded in a short story, but they did and that too beautifully.
- Variety of themes, I mean this book actually presents gamut of varied emotions in 191 pages.

It’s difficult to decide whether I liked Billu’s story in A Familiar Stranger more or Ram’s emotion from The City of Mirrors but amongst all if I have to go for one, I think I would pick the first story of Not the only Peanut Seller Who Hasn’t Heard of Osama Bin Laden – it’s nice and simple and emotional or The Beautiful People which is again simple yet very hard-hitting. Did I not like anything about this book? Nothing very strongly but yes, definitely found 2-3 stories to be quite vague
