The stories are similar to what I remember reading when I was young. But it is written in an irritating manner. You'll find one story encapsulating another story which encapsulates another story and then it folds backwards to finish the first story - many, many pages after it first began. And they do that again and again. So much so that it became burdensome to read this after a while.
What a pity, because the stories are nice. I just never remember it being told like this before. And with so many interjections of other stories inside stories. Still, given that it's hard to find nice stories of folklore from India, you might be hard pressed to find better books. But be warned about the irritating style in this book.
