This is such a darling of a book. I love reading and re-reading the stories in here. The stories take you into an innocent, pure world. A world full of longings and promises and also romance. There is a tint of sadness in some stories. Not at all soapy-emotional. But just a little turn of phrase would give a beautiful turn to the story. But that's what Mr. Ruskibn Bond does, he doesn't need huge paragraphs to make his point. He can make a story hit straight into our hearts with just a few carefully chosen words. I love the cover too. Also, one thing special about him is that he, I personally think, blurs the line between fiction and autobiographical writings. I mean some stories are so realistic that one feels that the protagonist is none other than the author himself. Truly magical. And so romantic!
It is a best read for impatient, sensible readers... Go for it... This book revolves around a bunch of short stories with a light tinge of love, affection, mystery....with a wide range of moods, readers shall be able to indulge deeply and yet recover from the persisting trail of each story,when they'll move from one to the next story.... It'll light up the age old debate of what love actually is... Every definition conveyed through the stories will seem apt.. But still there will be that sweet confusion which will drive the readers to keep on reading the book..... Fully...
Ruskin Bond beautifully portrays love of all age groups from adolescence to middle age to older years. There were a few stories which made me smile despite the fact that they were mostly tales of unrequited love. The kind of attraction the protagonist feels for women through these stories has a lot to do with their association with nature. The beauty of hilly regions of Dehradun & Mussoorie(Where Ruskin Bond spent most of his growing years) is vividly described through the pages of this book which I would suggest everyone to read purely for the charm that Ruskin Bond emanates! :)
A good selection of Ruskin Bond's shorts which are bound to make you think of all your personal love stories. Lucid, simple and so close to life, Ruskin's writing is a treat. This is the first book I finished on daily commute of mine which is a testimony of how engrossing and simple Ruskin's stories are. A must read for all romantics out there and someone who likes stories.
Awesome short love stories that you will never want to miss. It's worth reading. Some stories will make you emotional and some will shock you at the end. You should go for it if you are romantic and emotional. Language is written so simply. Overall nice collection of stories.
This is certainly one of the books which takes us on a journey to love. Now whether we reach the destination or not isn't important but it is this journey which matters. Very beautifully and lucidly written. Go for it without a second thought. You're going to love it :)
I can never get tired reading and re-reading the stories of Ruskin Bond. They are beautiful and magical. The book "Falling in love again" will actually make you fall in love with all the stories inside it. Ruskin Bond is a magical writer.
These are lovely tales of love and I really enjoyed reading these stories as always it happens for Mr. Bond's written books! His tales are so effortlessly real and beautifully depicted, reader really can't gauge reality from imagination.
