Dream Castle is the most loved anthology. I personally feel the same.This anthology has anecdotes of all the stories related to one’s life. After reading this, one may feel attached to the characters.
The language is simple and poetic. The anecdotes of many learned have been delineated in the book. Mostly we see gap items on the stage. But this concept could be noticed in the book as well. There were some spare stories in the
book that touched the soul of the reader.
The editors seem to have given their best for this piece and this hard work, research can be noticed in their diction. According to Akash Rumade, Dream Castle is all about beautiful tales beautifully crafted around dreams, passion, love, happiness. Whereas Kavya Shah believes Dream Castle, is a book on reverie, which has also managed to be the book of dreams. It can stir the sleeping to wake up from their coffins, and inspire the rest to strive a little harder for their dreams.
Dream Castle is a collection of 20 stories.
