's review

it was amazing

The story starts at a slower pace with the main protagonist (Samanth), Sam struggling with her stagnant career. But she is happy with everything in life and wasn't cribbing too much till the time she finds out about her boyfriend's deception. Sam decides to move to a new place, a new job and the story with many twists starts unfolding in the new place. Her best friend Bella helps her with this move.
The author has extensive knowledge about Jakarta and its culture. She has described it too vividly that the reader feels too familiar about this place. The author uses the religion, its extremism, and also the other side of that fanatism as the central element of the story, But her writing doesn't sway this side or the another but keeps the neutral stance to narrate the story from Sam's perspective. As the story unfolds, Sam just steals the reader's hearts through the turmoils in her life. Her struggles on the work front, and the love-lorn life. Bella's character has been projected as one of the strongest person, who tries to help her friend and take care of her. I guess everyone needs Bella in their life.
The plot gets thickening with so many twists and the last twist of the tale is in fact very interesting and was expected too. Can't wait to read the next part to cover more of Jakarta by Margaret.
Note: I got a free copy of this book in return for a review from Booktasters. and my thoughts are in no way influenced by this.
