The Inimitable Chaos of Life by Maliny Mohan – Book Review

The Inimitable Chaos of Life



A naive girl of eighteen is trapped in a dungeon, which changes her and her capturer’s life forever. Afar, tucked away in the sleepy terrains of a town in Kerala, a married woman is determined to revisit a forbidden part of her past. A model-turned-MBA aspirant is scourged mentally for a decision she almost made three years back. Back in the less happening village of Kanyapuram, an aspiring author loses a copy of her very first manuscript.

True to its title, ‘The Inimitable Chaos of life’ is an amalgamation of enthralling stories borrowed from the chaotic pages of life, which allure you to relive the multitude of unique emotions humans are made of.

Book Review:

I have always loved short stories and The Inimitable Chaos of Life by Maliny Mohan is the latest addition in the list of my favourite short story collections. The book contains stories dealing with the chaos called life. I like emotional stories and those that are close to life and maybe this is the reason why I liked the book so much. Every story comes with its own kind of emotion and intrigues the reader while talking about different shades of life like love, betrayal, sorrow, triumph etc.

Every story is different and is one of its kinds. These well-written stories seem very relatable and anyone who is close to life will definitely cherish the stories. It’s very difficult to choose any one favourite as I liked them all.

Apart from the story themes, I also liked the language of the book. Though the language is lucid, it is also beautiful thus enhancing the pleasure of reading the book. Usage of words and phrases within the stories is exemplary. The vivid narration is another highlight. I loved the way author has described the scenes in the stories. The characters are also relatable and are developed well.

Now coming to the flip side of the book. Such an impressive book is not available on Amazon which is really sad. Now when Amazon has become one of the biggest online portals for buying books, many readers would not get a chance to read it. Also, the cover of the book is too simple and plain. It did not even catch my attention. It was when I read some of the excerpts that I got interested in the book. Also, the font and typesetting are not very good making it a bit difficult to read the book.

Overall, The Inimitable Chaos of Life by Maliny Mohan is a nice collection of short stories that will stay with you for long. Highly recommended to those who love reading emotional stories. Looking forward to read more from the author.
