One must be cognizant of the fact that there are very few Indian writers around who write supernatural. All the writers I know of, have written collection of short stories yours truly included. Jessica Faleiro, in this regard, has a first to her credit. Afterlife Ghost Stories from Goa is one of the first full length supernatural novel from an Indian writer.
On to the novel, its very tightly written. The setting of the book is brilliant, the Fonseca family reciting ghost s Brilliant.. The setting of the book is brilliant, the Fonseca family reciting ghost stories in the dead of a power cut, rain battered night is something which by itself is sure to bring out the creeps.
Jessica's writing style and narrative is simple and easy to follow. The characters and their personalities have been built up well. Each story essentially forms a chapter in itself with a rather surprising but effective end to the book. Among the stories my personal favorites are "The Princess" and "The Goblet", but I am sure each one would have his or her own picks Oct 07, Wendell D'Costa rated it really liked it. Ghost stories are best told in the dark they say, and this book surely does justice to that.
Afterlife: Ghost stories from Goa, is a brilliantly written book by Jessica Faleiro. It tells of a family gathering, that soon escalates to a ghost stories session due to a power cut, as each member of the Fonseca family narrate their experiences with the supernatural, many age old family secrets are revealed, along with a curse that binds the family forever.
The stories in this book are not extremely te Ghost stories are best told in the dark they say, and this book surely does justice to that. The stories in this book are not extremely terrifying but are well thought out and well written, and surely are quiet mystifying and spooky to say the least. But, what I love appreciate most about this book is Jessica Faleiros attention to detail in terms of literature and story-telling, and the immense influence her Goan heritage and culture have on this book.
The nostalgia that the Goan influence creates is surely my favorite part of the book. But, the twist in the end is the let down for me, as it didn't seem to co-relate much with the story.
But all things said Jessica Faleiro surely deserves some praise for this amazing book. Although Indian authors don't really pay much attention to the Horror genre this is surely a rare gem, and a great read for book lovers. View 2 comments. Aug 30, Nivan Braganza rated it it was amazing. This book is about a family reunited a night before the narrator's father's 75th birthday celebration. All the members of the family share a bone chilling story of the preternatural during a power cut.
This book has a shocking ending according to me. Overall a great book and I enjoyed every bit of it. View all 5 comments. Jun 15, Amit Gupta rated it liked it. The Fonsecas are your friendly neighbourhood Goan family. His wife, Lillian, worries about feeding guests and finding a boy for her unmarried daughter.
Their daughters Carol and Joanna are both settled abroad. The Foncesca family- father Savio, mother Lillian and daughters Carol and Joanna have gathered in Goa to celebrate Savio's 75th birthday.

The night before the big party, the family has a visit from Savio's cousin brother Eduardo and his wife Maria and kids Susheela and Jason come and as the rain pours outside and the power goes out.
There are stories of naughty ghosts, exorcism and haunted palaces. The narrative has distinct Goan flavour to it and even though these stories can happen in any part of the world, they explore the genre by keeping Catholic religion and fanaticism as background in all of them. Each of the story by a family member forms a new chapter. There are usual horror genre stories here - exorcism of a young boy infected with an old man's spirit or a girl who dares to spend a night in a haunted library and end up doing the 'unnatural' stuff.
At the same time, there are stories explored with a twist - An uncle who prefers sending messages from the grave or a relative who all believe has been reincarnated as a bird or my personal favourite - a 'good ghost' who loves children.
I particularly liked the way Goa has been used in setting up of stories - right from furniture to flower vases to the ballroom dances and ivory curtains. Most of the stories are not horror inducing but gradually grow into thrilling stories about the experience of paranormal. And there lies in the victory of the book which is finding the uncommon in the common, the occurrence of horror in our everyday life.
Read it if you are a fan of horror genre. You won't be disappointed. Mar 09, Dev J Sarkar rated it liked it. When I first started reading this book, I was hoping for it to be really scary.
