My Review - 

Volcanic Moments is literally a heart popping tales written by Mona Mohanty. In her second book, the author narrates twenty-five short stories. The cover page could have been better.

The stories are about different aspects of society. It includes dark humor, social issues, and homicide. The author has a commendable grip over the language. The way Mona Mohanty uses her impeccable vocabulary; makes me feel why I didn't read this book sooner. The few stories were easily predictable while others were playing with readers' minds. The Stowaway story is my favorite. I read it twice to understand the gist of it. (PS - Don't judge me, please.) It was a great story in the whole book, which amazed me. 

The author weaves all the stories with great passion, and I really enjoyed reading this book. The stories are reflective of our age-old customs, where women are considered as objects only. The author contemplates almost every key point through the acid attack to the wraith and women mongers to abusive husbands. The narration is flawless. The stories are fast-paced. If you like to read short stories with a suspense element, I recommend this book to you.
