The problem with me writing a book review is that I always feel biased to book I read last. However, even after a couple of days of reading this one, I would still go out and tell everyone to put it on their #tbr.
Sensitive, warm, fuzzy, scary, painful. The entire book is a roller coaster of emotions.
It's an emotional journey of a mother searching for her daughter in a #dystopian world to close to reality. Shalini, the main protagonist of the book, takes us back and forth in a crumbling world where freedom to love, marry and live life on your terms is looked down upon. Where in the name of culture and tradition families are torn apart and live in fear of being torn apart. The entire fabric of society seems so fragile in this world that you tiptoe into the next page fearing that your ‘democratic’ world isn’t suddenly destroyed.
All in all a must read and I'm glad to have started the year with this one.
