The story titles "They Go to Sleep" is a mix of thriller and literary fiction. "Six days Seven Lives" proceed as a suspense story yet it couldn't be counted as a thriller. The climax comes without much drama. "Man of letters" is a futuristic story. "Rare" is an interesting story. It's an informative fiction. "The short lives of Shazia Sultana" is a realistic fiction. It is a story that could happen to anyone in this digital age and it could have happened to many.
What blew my mind are two stories- "It was time" and "The other side". Both stories hooks the reader to each sentence and end up with a mind-blowing climax. The remaining five stories, though good ones, failed to create a gluing impact in the minds of the readers.
The style of narration is something that needs special mention. Author's capability to play with words is impeccable.
Coming to the book :- • The narration was good and quite simple . • The charecters were well described and the important fact about the writing is , I felt no exaggeration throughout the book .

The writer has maintained a flow in the reading, with twists and thrills happening; some readers may need to occasionally take use of a dictionary to correctly understand the meaning of some words used.
