Me thinks

I loved the title of the book – pretty innovative, quirky and of course enticing a reader as it piques your interest. Though I feel the cover design could have been a bit more elaborative and detailed in terms of grabbing the reader’s attention.

For a debutant the author has done an exceptional job here. I simply loved the detailing done by the author, the emotions, the narrative, the flow – all deserve thumbs up for a first timer’s attempt.
The author has written the story exceptionally well dealing with human emotions beautifully. Yes the story line is touching and a little bit melodramatic but it never feels suffocating with the same old stuff. You are actually curious to read and know what’s in store ahead.

I would say please don’t go by the cover page or the fact that it is a debut novel. It is a wonderful read and surely a must read just for the beauty it has in terms of story and strong narrative.
