BOOK REVIEW: Rukhsat The Departure by Sujit Banerjee

" Twenty-six alphabets, twenty-six names, and twenty-six short stories. Each exploring one unique emotion, taking you into the dark recess of the mind. Some frothy and most of them dark. Most standing alone and some facing a mirror, where the same story comes alive in two different ways, through two different protagonist . Meet myriad characters - from the single-minded prostitute to the man on the railways station bereft of any memory; a woman desperate for a biological child to a dead man's trial. Meet a jealous lover with a twisted brain and a gay man's memory of a one-night encounter. Meet twenty-six such characters arrested and sentenced for life inside the pages of a book. Each one leaving an indelible mark on your soul.. "

BOOK REVIEW: - I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

There are overall 26 stories arranged alphabetically A to Z , some standing

alone, and some chatting up with their long lost friends. All the story are engaging and will grab the attention of readers.Its a blend of emotions, feelings of anger,darkness,betrayal.
There is a mixed feeling of nostalgia and curiosity.
The stories are short & some may seems to be incomplete.

Where a story stops, another one begins. The thing with them is they never walk alone. They always walk with a group of friends. Each reaches its own climax.

Each character is sketched very well.The writing style is very impressive that adds to the beauty of the book.

I would give this book 4.5 out of 5 stars.
