The book is very short and you can finish it in two to three sittings. Special appreciation goes to the cover page; it totally uplifts the concept of this book. This book is a must-read for those want to read Indian horror stories written by an Indian author. I am really glad that the author Neil D’silva is coming up with excellent books in this category.
