    One thought on “Ten Shades Of Life”

    1. When I found out about this book, I realised it had two very familiar names on the author list. Two bloggers whose blogs I have been following for quite some time now. I love their blogs and always have high expectations from them. So, I picked up this book with conflicting feelings of excitement and trepidation. My favourite story in the book has to be ‘Where did you go?’ by Deepa Duraisamy. The story was categorised as Suspense/Thriller. The story deals with a missing kid, and while you mi [...]

    2. For this book to have happened, there was a lot of hard work, but it was because of the authors mainly. It wouldn’t have been a book if they hadn’t put an effort to write the stories! So, I don’t like that there aren’t any author bios in the book. Atleast a paragraph on each at the end of the book would’ve been good, if not a page before each story, because as a reader, I’d also want to know a little bit about the author. I also found a few typos, but not all of them stood out and hi [...]

    3. By Grade A. Edited by Nethra A“Hey buddy, I love thrillers. Can you suggest me something?” my friend asked. “Try Ten Shades of Life,” prompt came my reply. “Sir, I heard you read quite a lot. Can you recommend any love story that my girlfriend might like?” my colleague asked, smilingly. “Aah, I guess Ten Shades Of Life can do the trick.” “Brother, I haven’t read a good horror since a long time,” my cousin complained. “Why don’t you go for Ten Shades of Life?” I answer [...]

    4. It was a delight to see the stories of some familiar bloggers. My favorite story from this collection is Roshan Radhakrishnan’s Action/Adventure Harry’s Bluff. It is fast paced story of a hired assassin who becomes the victim himself. This story surely keeps you on the edge of the seat. The characterization is good and the best was the way the story unfolds – truly international.I liked Karthik’s , A Nootropic Egress which is Science-Fiction. Crisply and skilfully narrated, this is a ver [...]

Nethra has worked her way to bring together ten stories of different genre into one bookFor that reason this anthology stays different and an enjoyable readThough I started systematically after first story, I chose the story randomlyThe Incarnadines by Miss Cheyenne Mitchell: Teenager Liane is a lonely girl, she has no friends and is ignored by her alcoholic parentsShe is an expert living a life of being invisible to everyone aroundDeeply disturbed by her abusive parents her life starts to chang [...]

    7. Different yes – it definitely is. With anthologies generally trying to stick to one genre , the editor Nethra has tried bringing along a variety of genres in one book and named it aptly Ten Shades of Life. I was very keen to read this one especially because it has some of my blogger mentioned therein who have got published. And when Reshmy contacted me requesting for a review I was more than happy to grab this opportunity.Each and every story is like a gem carefully chosen after rounds of thor [...]

    8. Fablery is a short story writing contest and it aims to provide aspiring writers an opportunity to come out of their shells and get published. The 'Ten Shades of Life' edited by Nethra A is a mosaic of stories that topped each genre in the contest.
