Book review: A Conversation with the Mountains And Other Stories
Some books march into your life. 'A Conversation with the Mountains And Other Stories' by Rajender Singh is exactly such a book that would make you put yourself into the shoes of the writer and make you experience all kinds of interesting things that he has gone through.
Once again Power Publishers has come up with an interesting and powerful topic that that is sure to catch the attention of the young readers.
The book is a compilation of short stories that would clutch, scrabble and fumble across the surface of your minds.
These subtle emotions have been projected through the lives of people of Himachal Pradesh.
There is something about Singh’s writing that makes you experience sadness and humour at the same time.
Singh has highlighted his experience in a vivid language and tried connecting with the emotions of the readers.
His abrupt ends which leaves you with questions is the best part of reading this book.
The author succeeds in giving us a ride to picturesque places in the mountains.
The book has a touch of magic and anecdotes from smallish towns in India.
The book not only ensures that you spend an enjoyable afternoon book in hand and over a cup of tea but may also encourage you to pen down your own life experiences.
