Shoddy and a bit disappointing
11 February 2019
My Rating- 2.5 / 5 Stars
Firstly, this shoddy paperback has no 'Table of Contents' so it is difficult to find a particular story. I feel this book could have been made far better. A few more stories could have been added instead of huge quotes and blank pages at the end. Also the size is very small. All the five stories revolve around different desires like that for food, love, sex etc.
The first story is about a young couple robbing a bakery at gunpoint for thrill.
The second one '100% Perfect Girl' is very short but good.
For the third one, 'Samsa in Love' one needs to read or at least know a bit about 'Metamorphosis' by Franz Kafka for the story is a sort of a sequel to the novel.
Next one 'The Birthday Girl' is nice but has an abstract and confusing ending.
The last one is the longest story that is part autobiographical.
Over all, I feel this book is expensive for this price (I got it for Rs 158) even after some discount.
