Review
 
I prefer reading short story collection while travelling to work because I can finish reading a story on time and I do not have to recollect the story when reading again. I started reading 15/1 Story Avenue long back and finally, finished it yesterday. The stories in this collection belong to different genre and have a unique storyline. Some stories are short - they span over 4-5 pages while some are a bit long. Since the stories belong to different genre, you'll always be impatient to know more about the stories. The stories have been named in such a way that you'll keep wondering what the story is all about. The stories have been narrated well. Stories like 'Teri meri hatke love story', 'A honeymoon to remember' has that personal touch. The narration style is good and yes, it keeps you hooked on to the stories. Every story gives out a message to its readers. I liked these messages. 
 
My favorite stories from this collection are:
Mandroid, A honeymoon to remember, A ganges full of love and the perfect photograph.

I rate:
Cover: 4/5
Stories: 3.5/5

I rate '15/1 Story Avenue' with 3.5/5 stars.
