So, here is what I thought.
I won’t even get into details. There is no necessity. The cover was stellar. It’s one of the best I’ve seen. Attractive? Check. Deep and Meaningful? Check. Connects to the Plot? Check.
Such power and magnificence in the title. I love how strong it sounds but what I love even more is how the whole plot and story justified with with utmost priority. Again, the rating isn’t difficult to give.
Title Rating – 5/5
This is the main part of any book. There are hardly any negative aspects to the book, which is why I will start with those first. I found two issues, though minor and highly based on perception, I will add.
The first was that a few parts of the story dipped, making the reading a bit boring. I wished that the book could have been engaging throughout. However, considering the depth of the concept, I can let this pass.
The second was that a few sentences seemed off in terms of construction. I felt that if they could be worded differently, they would have made stunning one-liners. Again – Every author goes through this. We are all human and it happens.
Coming to the positives, definitely the first will have to be the subject. It is highly engaging and very complex, for which I applaud the author. But I applaud Gargi Publishers more for bringing something like this into limelight.
My debut novel was by Gargi Publishers as well, and not to sound biased, but I have immense respect for their choice of publication. The second main aspect was the writing style.
Soumyadeep aced this and managed to make such a deep and motivating subject sound highly enthralling and read-worthy. I loved it. More positives arise from the narrative, the conversational style adopted and the inclusion of a ‘prologue’ as well as an ‘epilogue’ which I personally LOVE in any novel. Kudos to the author. This was a fascinating read.
Rating – 4.5 / 5
I am glad to have this book on my shelf and wish to read more by this author. I love his writing style and that he chose such a different, bold topic to display.
Final Rating: 4.5/5
Verdict: Definitely Recommended!
