Reviews - What do customers think about Ticket To The Moon?

Simple and Elegant Narration  Apr 22, 2008
These stories carry in them a slice of the memory of the world from a certain corner of the globe. As one who grew up in those places where these stories are set in, I am able to see myself in the midst of the characters that come alive in this anthology. One could come from any part of the globe to see the universal human story in these tales. The unrelenting march of technology in the information age and in the era of globalization clearly sometimes out paces us- making us believe that speed regardless of direction is all important. Once in a while we pause and wonder what really the essentials that make up life are. These villages, the simple and cultured characters and their hardships will come to remain with you making you ponder long after you have kept the book down. The writing style is simple yet absorbing and the pictures are candid speaking their own stories in their own way.
I love this book  Apr 5, 2008
The author talks about the beauty of an Indian village and the Great values held by these Simple people in the village.
Alamelu, Santhosam and vidivelli are some of the unforgettable characters. The simple narration make the reader live with the characters. I couldn't resist the temptation to live a village life after reading this book.

It's simply superb.

Waiting for the next set of stories...
I have nothing to gain  Dec 10, 2007
I have nothing to gain from writing this brief review of Kumar's "Ticket to the Moon." However, I was one of two volunteer editor's, and the major one. Kumar and I are members of the Tampa Writer's Alliance critique group. I became entranced with his stories of rural life in a poorer region of southernmost India and asked him if he wanted me to take a look at them.

If you, as a reader, want to learn a bit more about the culture of this region, I highly recommend this book to you. I learned a lot from his short stories. And, I continue to work with him, presently reviewing (no money is involved) a novel he is working on, set in the same area of India.
