Final Cut

Uday Gupt’s Final Cut is a collection of short stories and a novella. Each story is unique and is crisp. Its narrative style holds readers attentions and arouses the interest. I loved the way author has blended history with the stories. It adds to the uniqueness of narrative.

Another aspect that caught my attention is the manner in which the author has spread the story over a long timelines which is very challenging in short stories genre. But the author has taken the challenge and succeeded in it too!!

Further, the cover page is a beautiful feather in the cap. It is relevant and persuades the reader to open the book and explore the magic hidden in words. And thankfully, the cover page is not misleading either. The author has delivered brilliant stories.

I appreciate author’s courage to take up a genre that still remains unexplored by the Indian authors. Writing the short stories is the toughest and the author passes the challenge with flying colors.

However, most of the stories lose its track in the midway before reaching its conclusion. The edition could have been better and the length of the stories could have been cut-short.

Keeping that aside, the book is a joy read. You will enjoy this book even if you are not a big fan of short stories.

So… Hurry!

Rating
3/5

PS: I heartily thank Market my book for giving away the book for review.
