's review

it was ok

A good measure of whether you like a book or not to me is the feeling you cary soon after you finish the book. And it was not a positive feeling with this book. The book seems to over-dramatize certain instances.

I read this book between two masterpieces by George Orwell-
Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four. Perhaps that influenced my opinion on this book too and I can't help compare these books. The current book stands nowhere if you compare on those standards. You can clearly see the difference between the two authors. While on one hand George Orwell paints some beautiful pictures and maintains the tempo throughout the book, Preeti Shenoy fails miserably there in my opinion. There are parts in this book where you just don't feel like continuing. I would't recommend reading this book. There are tons of options out there and though I haven't read a lot of books myself I am sure there are plenty of better books read than this. This book can kill your interest in reading and I almost fell in that trap.
