Me thinks

This is one book that had me confused and hence the choice of reading it. From the cover to the title to the story to the ending I was experiencing a huge confusion.

This book speaks about a lady and her struggles with marriage. Given the fact that majority of the Indian women face this there was nothing unique in offering in this book. Secondly the book cover was eons apart from the main topic of the book. What didn't work for me was the dull writing of the story with no characters standing out in the entire narration. Added to the fact that the story seemed very breezy, more like a soap opera. By the time I reached the end of the novel I was like What? It got over?Because I couldn't understand the ending perhaps. Not to forget some poorly edited portions and jarring typos.

What worked for me : The way this book is written, it might be enjoyed by a particular segment of the society especially by women who undergo these things daily. Moreover they might even get inspired and think of doing something about their own dreams and desires. This book might just help them think about themselves and take charge of their own lives.

Overall a decent one time read for me. 

Foodie Verdict
