Awesome !! The Bicycle Thief - debut book by Manish is a collection of short stories, with each story ending with a nice twist. I think some of the stories by Manish have a potential to be converted to new age bollywood short films !! Almost all stories are very relate-able, humorous and easy to read. I simply loved the Pinky Pinkie Ponky and The Lottery Ticket..difficult to choose from the 14 short stories - all are very well written and bring a smile to your face once you finish each story. I have given the book to my 9 old year son to read now and I am sure he will also enjoy it as much as I did. Manish Sahu you are brilliant with your first book, look forward to many more from you.
One of the best books that I have read in recent times!! This book is nothing short of brilliant, and the author Manish Sahu is a genius, a master storyteller who can twist and turn the tales, thereby raising the bar higher in every story till the human psyche is revealed, sometimes in glory, sometimes in a con.
The book had short stories, lasting a few pages, but each revealed a different facet. Every story was a master stroke of entertainment which had me either chuckling or shaking my head with disbelief.
Some of these stories have Indian/Hindi colloquial words, which are minimal and are apt for the story they tell. I liked the way author Manish Sahu has weaved his yarn of tales, dipping into the lives of people, till the flavor seeps into the pages of the book.
There is a unique Indian-ness about this book, but every story can be read by a global reader; it would resonate into the core because at the end of it all —We Are Humans!!
I loved, loved the book, it was a glorious 2 hours spent just perusing and wondering about each story. I loved the rhetoric endings which are so real that I had to write this review as soon as I finished the book.
"Who killed Vidyasagar" was my favorite story, it had me as exasperated as the main character!! Hahaha!! Well written!!
