A very strong roller coaster ride

I am not sure about the rest of the readers but I sure couldn’t leave the book till I reached the end and in one word this book was a roller coaster

The book runs parallel with narration that gives you the picture of modern day and a picture of the past and both of these run simultaneously and what made it even more interesting is that in both these sections things are so volatile and eventful that it is nothing less of a violent roller coaster ride.

The language is easy and narrative sharp sticking to the event at hand and focusing on just narrating you the story and nothing extra. You wouldn’t need anything because the story in itself so self sufficient that no adornment or spicing it up is necessary. The story in itself is spiced up

I thought it was a totally adrenaline rush, a full masala read. For some it may feel that the book can be a little too much with so much happening but to be honest that is what makes this book more powerful and a definite must because there is no dull moment.

Each chapter is filled with one after another twists and turns and making your head go round and round with the kind of things that hit you with full force

So in general with so much going on, you wouldn’t have a moment where you would watch the book pace halting in fact with so much going on it’s the readers those would want to take a breath.

I thought it was a perfect masala read.
