Sandy, an aspiring young writer gets an incredible opportunity to work with his idol - the celebrated and reclusive author Saleem Afzal - who hasn't written a new book in 23 years.
In a novel idea, each writer writes one half of the story, leaving it for the other to finish. Together, they imagine an epic battle between balance and chaos, a tale of a haunted house, a simple journey home that turns into a man's greatest nightmare, and even the end of the world.
As the stories take shape, Sandy gets curious about Saleem's past and the several unanswered questions that he encounters- Why did Saleem stop writing? Why can he no longer finish stories? What is behind the locked door in his house? And- what is The Lost Story'
Written like the premise, the stories in this book have each been done in two halves. One part by one author, and the second by the other, never discussing the story in between.

The lost story... You will be lost in this story... Second half has a lot of unimaginable twists.. I have seen many books containing short stories, but this is the first I ever read... And I pretty much liked it.. This is story is pretty much the movie INCEPTION, which starred my favourite hero, Leonardo... Everything seems real and unreal at the same time, which seems real is not real and which seems unreal is not uneral, but the at end, real becomes unreal and unreal becomes real. Confused? That is the feeling I was left with after watching that movie - INCEPTION. But strangely, i kinda liked it.. It is the same with this story.. Actually, the plot is the most different I have ever known... There are two authors - Amit Goyal and Sudhanshu Gupta - for this book.. One author writes half of a story and the other completes the other half, never discussing the story in between... The story is very much interesting till the end.. Confusing part is the last chapter... The the rest of the story is interesting as any other good novel.. A one-go read...
