    1. There are books about heroes and heroines overcoming all odds in missions to save themselves, their families, even the entire human race! And then there are books like this one, with everyday people going about their business and simply trying to do their best to help whoever may cross their paths. Honestly, I prefer the latter. They’re far more realistic with characters with whom it’s much easier to identify.Doyle had compiled a collection of three interlinked stories that offer us a glimps [...]

    2. Gateway of India: Book One by Ken Doyle is a collection of three stories against the backdrop of Bombay and the surrounding Indian cities. The stories, like the cities, interlink together to create the backdrop of the times. Story One: Dr. Frank Rebello loves his patients; he makes house calls and services them at his flat.

For a while I was transported to a continent and tantalized by hints and elements of a culture I have no experience of other than the things I hear, see or read in mainstream UK media or from literature written about or during the time of colonialism. I only wish there had been more.The kindly doctor travelling to Goa with his wife, what happened to him after the story ends? Did the bus conductor get justice [...]

    5. This -book of three short stories gives a taste of life and the lives of three Bombay citizens, and does so with a resonance that deepens as each of the stories unfold.The first story is perhaps the weaker, and would benefit from further editing. However, it does stir the interest and adds a weight to the second story, which in turn leads into the third and final tale. The linking of otherwise insignificant characters from each story is a clever device that increases interest at each level.An en [...]
