Reviewed by Foluso Falaye for Readers' Favorite

V.S. Sury's Impossible Tales is a collection of stories that present a different twist on reality and the laws of nature. A section in the book includes stories whose science is fabricated and not rooted in real scientific findings. For example, animals and trees that grow vertically are seen to grow horizontally in one story. Another section of the book is dedicated to what the author calls zip stories, mini-stories that have some basic concepts in common. Here, nature begins to learn and adapt to problems as a conscious being. Apples, which hurt from falls, don't fall the same way and glass doesn't break anymore. The human characters who discover nature's strange patterns are forced to question all their findings and what they know about their world. Read Impossible Tales to discover many more strange, intriguing twists on reality as we know it.

The stories are told with an obvious narrator's voice that is different from the characters' and provides intriguing, conversational remarks about the book's events. Additionally, I liked that the book does not contain conventional stories. Different parts of nature are seen as conscious and made more endearing. You will find yourself rooting for apples and viruses like human characters. And ever since I read the book, I have been looking at the world differently. How V.S. Sury winds reality with such graphic, intricate details helped me to realize that how the world works is just one story, and I can change my narrative to a more fascinating, colorful one. Readers who love to imagine improbable circumstances will have their fill with Impossible Tales. V.S. Sury's bold ideas are groundbreaking and creative enough to herald a new era of fiction. This is a masterpiece!
