The book is bag of emotions, dreams, career, family, friends, freedom, happiness, joy, Indian family, broken heart, childless, human, scarifies, marriage, infertility, pregnancy and unwanted relationships
Language of the book is lucid and written in a simple way to comprehend for any kind of reader. The narration is simple and engaging. The characters in the story are commendable, but a more strength would have added more weight to the plot. The story is written fast paced and predictable sometimes. I did not liked the climax and Hemant back story felt in complete. I wouldn’t say it would be the same when you finish reading it. A few typographical errors here and there need to be rectified.
An engaging read you can take this upon an lazy afternoon for a light read.
