Title : And…They Fell in Love!
Author : Vikas Singal
No one knows when the spice of love will get sprinkled over their heart.Sometimes it chose the track where the probability seems lesser.Vikas Singal’s book ‘And they fell in Love’, comprised of three short stories ,different from each other, precise and vibrating, higlighting the same phenomenon that the flower of love can blossom anytime,with anybody.Just wait for the right time and fingers crossed!
I completed this book in about 20 minutes.I think these type of books are good to have over a short journey where you can engaged yourself in the short stories in order to come out of boredom.Such books sounds good to accompany you over a short period of time.
A simple writing fashion has been chosen and narration has also done in an cogent manner.Characterization has been done nicely, though in short stories one couldn’t go in much depth.I wouldn’t say that the story goes in a smooth flow or the switching of events is perfect,but they are maintained quite well.As I rarely read short stories, because in my case they fail to create a proper ambience.Vikas Singal’s book does good work in this case.
Now let’s put a broader light on the content of this book :
The first story named ‘Mr. Right’,is laced with simplicity that starts on an interesting note.This is the story of a common guy and girl who on the demand of their parents meet each other being strangers just to see whether they fall perfect for each other.The author has lucidly showcased the feelings each of them has gone through.Many of us have encountered the same thing in life or some of you may soon going to encounter(:p).You would like the way author has descripted the feelings of the exemplar in a lively manner.
The second story played its role pretty-well.A common story that I had already encountered in many of the stories where the story portrayed by author has been a facet of many stories already told.Although,the basic motive behind the story is charming and likeable.
The third story ‘The Capri Girl’, is my favourite among these.A story of thundering and then rainining.I love those stories which starts on a negative note but ended on a positive one.This story is one among them where two strangers destined to meet in a journey and initially they find themselves uncomfortable in each other’s company ,but later on the ball changes it’s court and destiny plays its role.
The only thing I wish to have is : the stories would sound more fruitful if some more events had been amalgamated. And articulation of sentences could be done in a better manner.
Undoubtedly, facile stories offered to readers which can switch your mood onto a sweet tune for some time.A very good luck and success to the author for his upcoming ventures.
