Review: Years Later On Facebook

Author: Jupinderjit Singh
Genre: Short Story, Humor. 
Rating: đŸ«đŸ«đŸ«


This book is a collection of short-stories and Middles. It begins with the tale of a man who meets a childhood flame on Facebook. The story 'Safety-Pin 'talks about a career woman, who seeks to peep outside marriage. The range of stories takes you from voyeuristic men in a gym, and another in a train, to those taking on 'love jihad', you will find something that teases a thought. From the love story of two canines at the Indo-pak border to nature's effort to erase the borders through 'Peepal no 18'; to gun-firing in Poonch; to the serene silence of Ladakh, the book will offer food for thought to travellers as well. In fact, with glimpses of Istanbul, London, Kashmir and Rajasthan, these stories are sure to make an interesting accompaniment to your travels!

Cover Review:

The cover is a picture of a colour painting. Not really something I'd like to see as a book cover. 

Book Review:

Lets start off with the positives. The stories were funny, had a meaning and some of them were even quite impactful. 

The ones about the author himself were a lot more interesting than the others. They were funnier too.

The stories were all good and had a lot of potential. They could be better though. 

There were a lot of grammatical errors, from punctuation to sentence construction to the application of tenses. If the grammar had been better, I think I'd have given it a four stars rating. 

Some of the stories that I liked the most are 'Peepal Tree No. 918', 'The Pleasure of Giving', 'Of Ghosts and Printer's Devil's, etc.

All in all, Years Later On Facebook is a fun, light read if you can ignore the somewhat apparent grammatical errors and not-so-fun if you are irked by every single one of them.

  1. What a good idea for a story though! I will keep it in mind when I am looking for a novella.

  2. I wouldn't be able to get past the errors. I read a book once that was riddled with errors and it was so frustrating. I'm glad you were able to enjoy some of the stories

  3. I can handle some errors, although too many and it causes my brain to stutter ;)
