  1. Abhijit Bhattacharya’s short stories are mini-thrillers. Simply written, with the tone of spoken language, they move at high speed to religiously bring you to that unpredictable twist in the end. The writer is familiar with the milieu he places his characters in, so they believable, and at the same time, each story’s world differs a lot from the next one, making the collection a varied and captivating one. A fun, easy read.
    Abhijit Bhattacharya likes it simple! No complex sentences, convolutions, over-wrought descriptions or extensive metaphors for him. And it seems to be the right fit for stories which are short even for short stories. There’s simply no time to spend on anything other than plot. A bare and lean style, which makes the stories a quick read, may be just what young readers are looking for.
