They Go To Sleep by Saugata Chakraborty- Review
The story titled “They Go to Sleep” is a mix of thriller and literary fiction. “Six days Seven Lives” proceed as a suspense story yet it couldn’t be counted as a thriller. The climax comes without much drama. “Man of letters” is a futuristic story. “Rare” is an interesting story. It’s informative fiction. “The short lives of Shazia Sultana” is realistic fiction. It is a story that could happen to anyone in this digital age and it could have happened to many.
What blew my mind are two stories- “It was time” and “The other side”. Both stories hook the reader with each sentence and end up with a mind-blowing climax. The remaining five stories, though good ones, failed to create a gluing impact in the minds of the readers.
The style of narration is something that needs special mention. The author’s capability to play with words is impeccable.
Playing with words and emotions.
