Reading books from Niyogi Books has always been an amazing experience. Often their books are best among many I get to review. And this book, Mussoorie’s Mythhistory is among the best.

Mussoorie’s Mythistory is a collection of 12 carefully picked stories. In the heart of the stories lies events that happened and shook the people of that time and connected by a common thread that is Mussoorie.

The stories here range from horror to mystery, revenge, and passion. Each story puts in awe of the events that happened in the past, the air myths that it surrounds now.

Some stories give you an unexpected surprise, some shake you to the core and some gets embedded in your heart forever.

Hugh’s and Colleen’s narrative is so intricately weaved and vivid that you get lost on the hills of Mussoorie while reading these stories.

There were a few stories, I really loved reading:

  • Fowl Play
  • The Chrysallies
  • Afghan Seed

Do I recommend this book?

On so many levels YES! This book is a perfect read for hot summer nights on a Hill Station. And an amazing experience of stories which our grandmother used to say on our bedtime in our childhood. This book has earned a 4.5/5 for its sheer beauty of storytelling.

My Rating: 4.5/5 stars
