“This book is like Kumar himself. Within minutes, it disarmed me with familiarity and led me into his world. I found myself mingling with his characters, speaking his language, sharing his emotions, and yet believing they weren't his, but mine. As a person, Kumar does this to people he meets. He's never a stranger to anyone for long. He's not unique. He's not melodramatic. He's all that you expect him to be. His book is ditto this. It upset the tenets of writing in my head. It's no fiction. It was simply a stroll back into my own life, like reading my own diary. That I think is what's most unique about this nothing-unique book and its never-a-stranger author.” RAMESH RABINDRANATH- EX NCD MUDRA & NETWORK ADVERTISING

My favorite of the lot? Make up and Made up.
Most of the tales are inspired by the author’s real life events which adds to a more realistic depiction of the same. Every tale is short and rad and that is what makes the book unparalled. It is like listening to an old professor talk of his days with a twist in the end to foster a message of value into the plotline.
If you ask me what I loved most was the illustrations and pictures on every other page and that fact that this book was only 100 pages long so I could be done with it in less than 2 hours which is all I can afford after long tiring working hours.
The vernacular used was impressible as well and what made it click was the author’s use of hindi and tamil words.
Lacunae you ask, there were plenty of grammatical as well as spelling mistakes and to top that printing mistakes which will have a it of stars cut off the review score for this book.
Writing and Presentation:4/5
Collection of 14 stories most of which are narrated in first person. These aptly describe the life and scenes in the years mentioned and personally for me it was very nostalgic as I have seen those places and lived there during that time.
Each story has a flavour of its own starting with unique titles. Through his tales the author has given voice to various emotions and also let us meet some really inspirational people who lead a normal life.
The things which I didn't like were the typographical errors in the Kindle version.
Although most of the stories were in first person and the flow goes great it got broken in between due to a very good but an unrelated story. Would have loved if the experience would have been seamless.
Having said that even that story was a really good one.
This is a book that can be enjoyed by everyone from beginners to avid readers. It can be read in one go or savoured in bits n byte size portions.
Author: Kumar Ganesan
Format: Kindle Book
The title of the book ' Storywallah ' reminds the famous name, Dabbawallah of Mumbai. Maybe the book has some interesting tales.
Book Cover :
The book cover is a simple image of the punctuation marks - double quotes. But, the image also looks like an artistic expression of a couple's face.
The book is a collection of short tales that are inspired by real life. Every story illustrates different emotions. Few stories are nostalgic, few are inspirational while some of them are bold and existing taboo-breaking.
What I liked:
1. Wide topics are chosen.
2. An underlying feel in every story.
3. Strong emotions are carried by every character in the story.
What I didn't like:
1. Words with wrong spellings
2. Editing errors
3. Excessive usage of other language causing an unwanted pause while reading.
All the characters are etched with sufficient importance.
The narration is simple and engaging.
Language and Vocabulary:
Good grammar & language are used.
My Final Verdict—.
A onetime short read.
