Book Review: The Mobile Phone by Pankaj Suneja
|Genre:||Psychology, Short Story|
|Book Name:||The Mobile Phone|
The book could have been an excellent read – with two stories intertwined with each other and dealing with changing relationships, depression, and fabricating a different world in mind to bridge the gap with reality (Schizophrenia). The start was crisp; however by the end, one’s interest may waver. A good attempt at writing on such a delicate topic, but which could have been much much better.
Specially negative points to the publishing house who gave ‘ok’ to publishing the book without even doing a spelling or grammar check in MS Word. Grammatical mistakes, sentence construction errors, name mismatches, confusion between narration of the two stories – some place as third person while others as first person, and the list goes, all of which disinterested me in completing the book. But there, I did it! Crisper editing could have made it so much more a worthwhile read.
