    1. This book is a collection of short stories that deal with the trials and tribulations faced by people of this century. It deals with the lifestyle and ideals that the modern Indians choose to live by. The focus is mostly on the relationships that are thriving or breaking up around us as a result of these choices. Nine short stories dealing with different relationships with few characters interconnecting each other.First things first and for me characters always take the center stage as it is the [...]


    2. Love Peace and Happiness – Compelling yet disappointing. The book is a compilation of short stories with scenarios that are spun around the characters of Urban India. The book views protagonists from various walks of life sharing their view and experience on Love, Peace and Happiness. Good :The strong aspect of the book is the way in which the book is written , simple language that is comfortable for a quick read. The character from one story is linked to other stories with a simple link is a [...]


    3. The book is collection of 9 stories and as the title suggests the characters in the story are in search of Love,Peace and Happiness. It explores the relationships in urban India, their search and life in general.I have a love-hate relationship with this book and characters. At times the characters are snob, unsympathetic and selfish and at the same time some are pitiful and idiotic. But that’s because the stories are brutally practical and real. And there is no denying to that fact. Sex-No Sex [...]


    4. I got this book from the Free giveaways section on GR. I thank the writer very much for delivering the book on time.ABOUT THE BOOK:This was my first attempt at any book which is made up of a collection of short stories. Like most people I would say that its a bit unfair and difficult to rate these books because you feel that every story should be rated differently as you find some good and some bad. The same was with me, I found a couple of stories worth giving 5 Stars and a few others just 1 St [...]


    5. I found myself doing some deep thinking during this read. Mr. Verma has given the reader a lot of things to reflect on. His characters are memorable and the real-life situations they face are difficult. What would you do in these circumstances? Unless you have been confronted with the same problems it's hard to say. If you don't like the ending of a story you have the option to go to the web and write your own ending and submit it. This book of stories will stay on your shelf for years to come a [...]


    6. I generally don't read such books but this became an exception as it was a collection of short stories but this was a disappointing read. The same thing written in a different way over & over again. By the end of it I was just going through the motions and wanted this torture to finish! My Recommendation: Avoidable to say the least!


    7. The title, firstly, is ordinary yet thought provoking at the same time. Depending on how much you are ready to dwell on each character, each story, you will either find this book pretty ordinary or rather thought provoking. More on this later.It's a collection of short stories, all dealing with urban Indian middle class characters caught in a web of difficult choices having something to do with love, money, fame, value systems, morality, death etc. with a generous sprinkling of circumstances bey [...]


    8. What I first noticed about the book was its name. It was a simple and straight forward name with no frills whatsoever. With the name of the book in my mind, initially I thought it was one of those 'self help' books(even though I knew it was a book of short stories) which seems to be the rage nowadays. For all I know, I am not a 'self help book' girl. However, I was in for a surprise when I started reading the book. A compact book, 9 short stories- 5 stories from a female point of view and 4 stor [...]


    9. 'Love, Peace and Happiness: What more can you want?' is a collection of short stories written by Rituraj Verma. All these short stories are centred around people who are seeking the three aforesaid aspects of life, that is, love, peace and happiness and are having to encounter a set of problems during the course of the journey. This book has certainly introduced a very new concept; it is easy to ruin any good story with an inappropriate ending. Hence, the author gives you two choices here – if [...]


    10. Gently wafting through 9 short stories in the book will make you feel like the real potential of these stories has been squandered off in order to be experimental by providing alternate endings on the author website. Inherently, 'Chicken Soup for the Soul' in spirit each story centres on the life of an urban middle class character caught in a set of circumstances beyond his or her control. The stories are about common people and their circumstances are some thing which we all have come across in [...]


    11. This book has been a welcome surprise. I received this book from the author Rituraj for a review and hence got a chance to read it. The cover is nice and bright, the title of the book seemed very flat to me and so i was a little apprehensive of what would come my way. The book apart from the cover has a very text book quality of printing. Also the author's introduction seems too contrived and typical - IIT, MBA types who dabble into writing but The Forward by Smriti Verma - Author's wife i think [...]


    12. Reading the introduction got me skeptical Verma claims that all the characters in the short stories are like real life charactersI felt well that's what every contemporary author claims to writeHaving felt that I started with High Heaven the first story and things just clicked on from then on.The initial skeptism helped me see through all aspects of the characters and stories and letting me enjoy the readEach story carries its own underlying message apt for the day we live in without and Verma [...]


    13. Firstly I would like to applaud the author Rituraj Verma for coming up with such a brilliant concept which makes each and every reader feel like a part of the story. As you read each of these nine stories you are intrigued to keep your thinking cap on just in case you don’t like the ending how would you want it to end.Personally I find human relationships very complex. We love someone, we love someone else too result is confusion. We cannot decide whether we should continue is a relationship o [...]


    14. “Stories surround us.”So starts the text on the back cover of the Book ‘Love, Peace and Happiness: What more can you want?’And I thought it was just another one straight out of the league of books inspired by Chetan Bhagat and other writers with a MBA degree. Then I chided myself for being prejudiced. I turned the pages and reading the foreword made me curious. It was wistful, delicate and evoked a humane interest in the author.As I started with the first story ‘A high, like heaven’, [...]


    15. The title of his short story collection, 'Love, Peace and Happiness' gave me a 'Chicken Soup of the Soul' kind of feeling. I was expecting mushy emotional stories that would touch the heart and probably bring a tear or at least wet the eyes It is a nice collection overall; with the novel concept of alternate endings available on the internet for readers to get more value out of the book. If the reader is not satisfied by the ending in the book or the web, they can suggest their own. Some were go [...]


    16. Complete ReviewThis book is a collection of short stories with a difference. The stories revolve around 3 basic facets of human existence (or the lack of it, in today's world): Love, Peace and Happiness. The protagonists in each story has his / her own way to perceive the above mentioned facets. Some are morally right, some not. You may even feel the story resembles the life of someone you know.The writing is simple and straightforward. Author has ensured anyone and everyone with basic understan [...]


    17. When I received the ARC of this title, I wasn't sure what to expect; the unsubtle title and the unconventional approach of offering links to alternative endings (and the chance for readers to add their own) suggested that this was either going to be really, really good or really, really bad.Happily for all involved, this was really, really good. The stories alone make for enlightening and engaging reading. I started off musing on how different Indian culture is from Western culture when it comes [...]

    19. I received a signed copy of this book as a giveaway gift from the writer and I was intrigued by the concept of the book A few stories are very well written and the last story was a good summation of all. Overall it is a good one time read. The book also introduces a new concept of alternative endings on the website. Although a very unique concept, I personally did not like it. As I reader I like to go with the flow of the writer's thinking. A reader liking/disliking the end, that should be left [...]


    20. I was able to connect with all the stories very well. The characters almost spoke to me as if I were there in their imaginary world. But the fact that these stories were not just some sci-fiction makes it special. We all go through one or more of these phases once in our lives. And that is why when the author talks about the feelings and experiences of these characters, we feel as if he has written about us. The inexplicable emotions that we keep inside unable to share them with anyone are portr [...]
