“Random Subterranean Mosaic 2012–2018” – what a book title. The very title of Sabarna Roy’s book made me pick it up and read through. It just took me a single weekend to finish reading this kaleidoscope of fictional pieces which the author also claims to be semi-autobiographical at times.
The miniature tell-a-tale concept presented in this book is very appreciable. Though there are some minor editing gaps, but those can be well overlooked against the quality contents. Not sure of the market acceptance of such a different genre, but author’s lucid writing style goes very well with the flow of its contents.
An ardent lover of poetry, some of my personal favorite lines from the book are:-
“What happened to you were not your choices to begin with; they happened But you feel, simmering, that the future could be in your hands for you want to make certain deliberate changes to your life-stream.”
Beautiful lines keep hammering in your mind hours after closing the covers. That’s what is happening with me and I am sure many readers will go through the same experiences as me.
The book is a fantastic read for me and I will like to rate it as 5*/5*.
