Book Review:

The Line Reader is a collection of amazing short stories from various walks of life that include tales of the pain and pleasure experienced by people around us, tales of struggle and love around us, stories of emotion, suspense, aspirations and many more that will take you through a wonderful journey called life. Each one of these stories is simply wonderful that will sometimes make you laugh and sometimes feel sad. The stories cover various genres in a single book.

The plot idea for every story is unique with well crafted execution. Narration style is excellent and the storytelling style seems like that from a seasoned writer. The author, Agni Tripathi, has done a commendable job in churning out these interesting stories with such precision.

One thing that needs a special mention is the climax or ending of each story. The endings of every story is superb and leaves you spellbound. There are few stories which can be said microstories like “Photograph” which are small enough to hold the interest but deep enough to pass on the message to the reader with goosebumps.
