    1. When Readomania comes out with a new publication, you know for a fact that it is going to be brilliant. If a relay could be played in literature, this would be it. Crossed and Knotted is India’s first Composite Novel. Fourteen authors come together to collaborate and write a book - and here's the best part. Each individual story is a standalone that can be read in isolation, or in conjunction with the entire repertoire of stories. What makes Crossed and Knotted a great read is the fact that it [...]

    2. Another Unputdownable by Readomania - Crossed and Knotted is a double rainbow with fourteen stories in the season of mists and creative writing. In any endeavor of life, novelties involve tremendous research. Research means a lot of authentic work and Readomania has been successful in playing out a novelty in Indian writing. 'Floating Admiral' had given me a brief idea about the collaborative writing. The concept is a challenge in itself and the team of Crossed and Knotted deserves applause for [...]

    3. I liked this book very much. The way every story is connected with other intimately and still each story can stand out for itself is an outstanding effort.The following stories will have a special place in my heart.1. The Diary of Joseph Varughese.2. A Burning Candle3. Leap of Faith4. Look Beyond(The smallest and most beautiful chapter)5. For a Speck of a MomentOthers are also good but the above are masterpieces. There are few issues for example,Character of Rukhsana, later changed to Dimpy is n [...]

    4. It's a unique idea, masterfully executed. Read it as a collection of short stories or a novel it pays off. Best thing about it, that it is a mixed bag of genres; thriller, mystery, magical realism, romance and so much more! Worth a read.

    5. We all know about anthologies with short stories – but “Crossed & Knotted” is more than that. It’s a so-called composite novel where 14 short stories form one book with a common story arc, although each story can also be read as a stand-alone. Sounds fascinating, doesn’t it?The 1st story in the book is “A Curious Dalliance” by Sutapa Basu. It introduces the main character Sudip and sets the scene and pace for the coming chapters. I liked the way the protagonist never even knew [...]

    6. Where shadows are swallowed by the sky*Imagine a black & white world where each shadow struts like it is the only shadow in the world and refuses to be one with any other. There is a great shadow animosity reigning all over. Then there is another world where the sky is dark enough to make the shadows disappear into each other and then into the sky and yet, each shadow remains what it is. Both these worlds are the like the world of short stories. The latter is the one that comes nearest the c [...]

    7. Superb concept of composite novel,every chapter is intriguing and captivating,the links between the chapters keep you hooked throughout, truly making it crossed and knotted as title suggests. Must read.

    8. IDEACrossed & knotted, is a journey of 14 authors of different background and writing different genre. It is a suspense story of the protagonist Mr. Sudip Roy. It is a murder that is not a mystery for the readers, but for the characters of the story. A murder and the murderer need to be unleashed in this story. A story in 14 stories…The format of the Novel will intrigue every reader. One will always rake the brains of how 14 people can work on one plot, that too a murder mystery. Each and [...]

    9. Disclaimer: This review has not been commissioned by the Author even though I wish it was :D But ! You have killed my profession.India's first composite novel. Sounds very cool yet at the same time, I had a slight doubt when I first got this from the publisher Readomania for reviewing. Cool, due to the fact that we are notching up the genres that we present out to the world. On one side if we have embraced the nocturnal creatures and on the other hand, we have Titles to showcase along with The A [...]

    10. I started reading the book thinking it would be stories of star-crossed lovers and unrequited love; it is all that and so much more. If I say that the title of the book is so apt, the stories truly are knotted and merged with one another so much so that sometimes I felt they had been written by one person and not fourteen different writers. Each story is complete as a standalone and yet they blend so perfectly as a novel. Composite it is and what an effort.I read most of it late into the night a [...]

    11. While reading one of the stories in this book, not in a deliberate attempt, I had a fleeting visualization of the book in my head-of a circle made of several ropes, all twisted together.Well, that pretty much says everything about the brilliance with which the book has been packaged. Every writer has neatly picked up from the previous story, a gap apparent in only a few places. But in a compilation like this, you surely cannot hold that against the team. The way all writers have merged their tho [...]

    12. Great concept and good execution. I especially liked the writing style and content in the first and the last stories - Curious Dalliance and Last Act. Looking forward to more such interesting concept executions in the fictional world!

    13. Recognised as India's first composite novel which finds a place in the Limca Book of Records, Crossed and Knotted is an intriguing piece of fiction. Composed of fourteen chapters, written by fourteen different authors, each of these chapters can be read as a short story. They interweave to create a novel that traverses through time and distances, engulfing many characters in its travels. A unique concept of novel writing, each story picks up an element from the previous chapters to build further [...]

    14. The novel begins with a bang with Sutapa Basu’s first chapter. It makes the reader sit up and take notice. Hey, what the hell is happening? Something incredible indeed! Ayan Pal continues with the second chapter and he has already moved to the next generation. Press you hand against the dropping jaw. Yes, it continues with Shivi’s story – the girl who is fascinated with diaries. Are James and Joseph one and the same as James claims? You need to read the book to find out more. Chapter Three [...]

    15. WOWs!!The reads and story-line/s: Crossed & knotted they are indeed yet, each a story that can stand on its. When put together they form a long,strong rope that can bind the reader with awe. These fourteen stories bring out the myriad shades of human nature. One comes across aspirations and frustrations, dreams and shocking realities, faith and deceit, love and hate, greed and care in the pages of this novel that is unique and one of its kind. .Subtle love intertwined with dark mystery keeps [...]

    16. I received this book as a review copy directly from the publisher Redomania .Thank you Book Club and Rubina Ramesh for the same.

As in emotions of all the characters are very well described by various authors in an very effective manner .All the fourteen independent authors have done justice to their stories. They have penned it do [...]
