Book Review: Romance Shorts by Sourabh Mukherjee

Romance Shorts

Author: Sourabh Mukherjee
Rating: 3/5

‘Never judge a book by its cover’ is what fits best for this thin book. With less number of pages and simple cover, the book might not seem appealing in the very first look. But wait! There is more to this than expected. The author, with his exemplary vocabulary and conspicuous flair for words, has succeeded in touching the hearts of the readers.

‘Romance shorts’ is a compilation of four short stories that are intriguing as well as cut above the others. It is said the Love always finds its way. But what happens when things do not turn out the way you expect them to? The first story- ‘Nargis through my summers’ is a very good narrative that opens doors of imagination. But somehow the title did not quite match with what the plot had to offer.

‘Mine forever’, although predictable, yet was a streamlined read. The sequence of events in the story was fabulous and the narration was fantastic. The third story ‘Memories’ is, yet again, a very alluring read as the twists and turns have been placed properly. I liked the way the author has placed one predictable and one unpredictable story in the book.

Last but not the least, ‘Love came calling again’ is a story that appeals to your mind and the narration makes it more impactful. But all said and done, the presentation of the book is something that is a total negative. Right from the cover to the font (style and size), nothing has been taken care of. The editing has not been done properly because time and again punctuation errors can be found.

The commendable use of new words and phrases and creativity has made the author successful in knocking the socks of the readers. The plot of each story is twisted and you cannot afford to miss even a single page in order to keep the flow of the story going. The language is simple and clear.

Best wishes to the author!
