Tales from Firozshabaag,
This review is from: Tales from Firozsha Baag (Paperback)
I have read three of Rohinton Mistry's books and can't agree with another reviewer who felt that they could not get on with his 'short stories' because they did not feel it had the characteristics of his novels.
I felt by the end of the book that all the characters in Firozshabaag had been linked together and with the usual pathos and amusement that shines through his writing.
Rohinton Mistry has been responsible for me making a trip to Mumbai to see areas in his stories and for enlightening me about the Parsi/Zoroastrians.I wanted to know what the Fire Temple and Tower of Silence were, and now I do.
I have one novel and one more book of short stories to go,and just wish he would hurry up and write some more.
