Short stories are always better when you don’t know what to read next. Half pants, full pants is a great book with some very simple and some very intricate tales which revolves around the lives of characters that are as real as air. This book contains true accounts from a small place Shimoga that you can find really touching and remarkable.
I loved the former stories more then the latter ones because they had an unmatchable charm in them. You can't put the book down no matter what. Every story takes you down the lane, make you remember the old days when you did all those things in your childhood. You smile without being conscious enough.
The good thing is that the author didn’t waver from his theme and stick to what was expected from the book. And the real life tales thing made everything much more better and warming.
Every character was special in the book, it is hard to pick one. There was so much in everyone that things were elevated beyond normalcy.
The cover and the title also makes you smile. Every single thing of the book is crafted in such a way that you become nostalgic. The good thing is the variation, it was everywhere in the book.
All in all the book was a great, quick and easy read. It had a everything which a grown up needs in this running world, to have a break and relish some moments of happiness.
