So let's begin with the title of the book. I really liked the idea of naming the book as an address with a beautiful house on the cover. It is very creative and drives your attention towards it.
Apart from the title of the book, the author has named all the stories also very creatively, such as - Teri Meri Hatke Love Story, Drift, Mandroid, The Burning Torch of Truth, Vinashak, Weeds, A Honeymoon to Remember, A Ganges full of Love, The Lost Umbrella, Total Eclipse, The Perfect Photograph, That Stupid Bug Called Love, Many Silences in My Soul, Let's Go India Gate and Viswakarma Fervor.
This book is a melange of love, romance, thrill, action, friendship and social stories which will inspire your soul, boost your energy and make you fall in love with life. In short, it's all about GOOD STUFF!
Let's now look at MY TOP 5 FAVOURITE STORIES of the book:
2. Teri Meri Hatke Love Story
3. Many Silences in My Soul
4. A Ganges full of Love
5. Let's Go India Gate
Mandroid and Teri Meri Hatke Love Story are the 2 stories which I would have loved to read on any platform. These 2 stories give the required boost to the book and bind your mind to read more and more.
The language used by the author is easy and simple which will help you understand each and every word of the story. The major characters of the stories in the book are very young or just married and the stories are very real and believable. You can feel the connection with the characters.
The author has the ability to pen down amazing stories and I would love to read longer stories or a complete novel in the future. On the other hand, the content section has wrong numbering of pages which makes it look awkward.
But, overall I think 15/1 Story Avenue is a perfect book if you love reading short stories. You will feel inspired, motivated and loved. So, go ahead and buy this book from Amazon now!
