Evolution of Insanity is a book consisting of a great number of short stories, which, on a first look, don't seem to have much in common. Some are darker than others, some are funny and some are sad, like my favourite one, the protagonist who commits suicide because they cannot live up to their own expectations and would rather sink into their own despair than allow themselves to be as they are. As the reader progresses through the book, they'll start to realise the stories are all interlinked, giving the impression of moving from one book character to the next, from one life experience to another.This is a book that hasn't been done before, a remarkable book with surprising depth, beautiful writing, and certainly no dumbed down language to allow it to fit into a genre. When it comes to the language, I'd call it literary; the voice, however, is sharp and educated with plenty of humorous layers to it. The stories are connected in their depth and ability to link reality with fiction, dreams and mysticism with satire and belief, lifestyle and choice with art, and many, many more.It is a philosophical read, and while I'm into all that is philosophical, I often find philosophical books bordering on the boring side. Evolution of Insanity kept me reading from one tale to the other, wondering what would come next. I particularly liked the observational nature of the tales and how they brought to light all that is dark, hidden and twisted in human nature, giving insight into the various facets of humanity in a unique way. I was astounded at the immense creativity and diversity of this book, and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a bit of dark fiction with plenty of humour and excellent writing.

A viral Kindle Evolution of Insanity Reading this book is a horrible mistake.It made me insane.Overall, I think this book has one humongous mistake. A very huge irredeemable mistake.We are fooled thinking that this book is about how insanity evolved. "Do not judge the book by its title", that is more aptly appropriate than the original quotation. We expect to read about insanity and maybe read what author has to say about it and about all its possible forms and appearances throughout time, of how it grows and instills itself to one, of what it does and what it is capable of becoming. This book has made a very unforgivable mistake...Instead of the "Evolution of Insanity," this book should be correctly titled as "The Evolution of Genius!"I love it. I loved it the first time I read it and I know I will love it the next time I will read it. I love the complexity of the book. Some stories may be somewhat shallow, some are deeply profound, some are lamentable, some are funny, some are spicy and ironic, some are mundane, some are exceptional but most of all, every story is a jewel. This book is a veritable treasure box. I have never read such a powerful short story collection. This book transcends every genre I ever loved and known. It can be described closest as post-modern, but then there are elements of magical realism, of fantasy, of horror, of realism, of parodies and of excitingly innovative ideas. i cannot put this book in the shelf of fiction or non-fiction. I rather put copies of this in a pedestal behind the bookstore's window for all to see if I were a shop owner. This book is definitely beyond any classification. Haresh Daswani speaks of truth, and lies, and creatively made up half-truths and half-lies but most of all, it shows you how diverse the universe is. This book commits the totality of the cosmos with its myriad instances, its plenty characters, the multiple emotions that it shows and make us readers feel - the love, the terror, the hatred, the disgust, the outrageousness, and many more.I cannot help but surmise how can a writer this good have escaped me for years. I love weird books, strange literature that goes beyond normal mainstream and popular plots. I love innovation and postmodernism. Some writers I love are Jeanette Winterson, John Fowles, Haruki Murakami, Julian Barnes and now, I am a big fan of Haresh Daswani for sure. He can be ranked with this great writers because the scope of this book is exceptional and beyond comprehension. Before reading this, I must advise that the reader must be open-minded and wise enough, and prepare himself for anything. I admit there are some parts which I did not get immediately, there are parts which reveal themselves upon the first glance and there are even ones which are harder to decipher. But nevertheless, I will struggle to see all the secrets of this books. The author has many things to tell us and I would be a willing ear to all of it. This book may be as complicated as House of Leaves by Mark Danielewski but this one is more readable and enjoyable. A lot better!You will be totally mad and stupid if you miss the chance to read this. This is not the evolution of insanity as it states, rather it is the story of the evolution of a great writer's mind. The stories are representative of his skill as a storyteller, or a liar, or a religious figure of truth, whatever he may be in your eyes after you put this book down. You will surely not stop thinking of this long after you finish this.I am excited just thinking of rereading this again. But this time, I want to relish the magnificence of each story. I will read it in a non-chronological manner, the way Aesop's fables must be read. This book must be read for enjoyment. It also must be read to learn things. I also must be read to discover the universe with new eyes.This book changed me. It made me want to be a better writer who could make something even one-fourth of this. I am sure as a reader or a fellow author, this book would surely leave an impact to you. It will always leave a place in your heart and your mind, and of course, irrevocably it will make vibrations on your soul that will forever resonate with the whole creation.So put me now in a strait jacket or inject me with tranquilizers. I have to somehow stop raving about this book!
