Mesmerizing each and every stories written here has unexpected twist, I really loved this anthology of short stories. Each and every story conveys message to the reader, especially the first one and I really loved to read this story where a small child ask her mother to describe the death of his father, who was a police officer, the way this story described by Abhishek Mukherjee is heart touching, where reader have to think who is the killer.
My second favorite is a story of lizard grass, it really created Goosebumps. How a doctors doing experiment and the depression of a superstar revealed by the author Avishek Basu Mallick is amazing. Also I loved to read the inspiring story of a teacher, who helps a stammering child to become a singer.
The Jukebox is collection of 15 short stories where you will get love, emotion, drama, rage, mystery, suspense etc. this collection will appeal to youth as well as old age, each and every story is unique in its own way. The cover of the book is excellent where a headphone is placed, which conveys the message that there is good collection for you, so hear it or to be precise read it.
I really appreciate the initiative done by the writersmelon by giving a good platform to the budding writers who are unknown to the world until this book published by them, who knows among this budding writer anyone will become next Chetan Bhagat or Preeti Shenoy, lets wait and watch.
