Book Review on City Under Curfew

City under Curfew Has been an interesting yet engaging anthology of 12 short stories that are relatable with a tinge of surprise ending to it. The theme of the stories are promotion, parents, dreams, imposed curfew and so on, that any layman can relate to it. Whether it is running behind a dream or surfacing the gruesome reality of ones own profession or being betrayal from a family member, the stories make you feel like it is the story you might have come across nearby you.


The impact of the story is its writing style that is simple yet gripping. The author has not made any superfluous efforts to showcase his high vocabulary and still has managed to keep the readers hooked to the story. The cover of the book is not much alluring but gives you the sense of topics covered in the book.

It is must recommended for the readers who are looking out for a light reading yet would like to read something based on reality. The stories are engaging and hooking so the reader would not like to leave the stories without putting a full stop to the book. Promotion, City under Curfew, The First and the Last Letter and Are you Single are my favourites ones.
