Why do we read books like this? The nostalgia? I doubt this book will appeal to the younger generation, who don't relate to Pickwick, Billy Bunter, walks in the Hills, Ghost Stories of the Hills, and Misty Days.
If you relate to these, Ruskin Bond's book is for you.
It is a throwback to a slower time when we didn't rush. It is a throwback to when people were willing to have a conversation.
Nostalgia, maybe.

A splendid collection of Uncle Ruskin's railway stories.
I loved:
Night Train at Deoli
Night Train at Shamli
Woman on Platform No 8

This book is a collection of 9 short stories and a novella. Novella is not a ghost story but a mystery. I really enjoyed the novella. It is not so much about solving the crime or it is not that typical "Butler did it" story. Talks about how extraordinary situations compel people to take drastic measures. And delineates the fact that heroes need not always be James Bonds.

And the short stories range from mythical to poignant. Ghost stories and poignancy - only Ruskin Bond can pull it off!

Not quite the same Ruskin Bond's book. A tad lackluster.
