Here’s presenting the latest reader of The Other Side!
He still writes books in the age-old way by putting pen on paper and with the same pen, Ruskin Bond gave us his views on The Other Side.
Mr. Bond was pleased to see horror writing emerge out again. He termed the book as unputdownable and this is what he had to say (in the picture)!
The ultimate blurb by India’s first horror novelist who says he is pleased to see that the genre is being revived in India!
“An entertaining collection of spooky stories- original insights into the paranormal and the supernatural. Will be a best-seller,” says the legendary Ruskin Bond on The Other Side over a cuppa with author Vivek Banerjee.
One of the few reviewers I take very seriously gives The Other Side an almost five star. Thank you Debdatta Sahay! Five Stars
“Faraaz Kazi’s debut novel was a romance and I wanted to know if a young author like him can successfully write stories in such different genre. Can the same author make a reader go ‘Aww!!’ while reading his romance novel to ‘Oh Shit!’ while reading his horror stories…? Well, I am glad that my curiosity made me pick this book up because the answer is ‘YES’”- Noted blogger Debadatta Sahay.
Don’t know what I was laughing at but I guess it was some interesting statement made by one of my co-panelists, Sreemoyee Piu Kundu or Milan Vohra.
Either way, had a good time at the TOI Lit Carnival in Bangalore!
