A very interesting book. Worth reading…….You feel as if you are there…….The structure, narrative style, editing, graphic descriptions of locales etc. are excellent. One of the real highlights of the Novel is the narration and build up of situations…..Can’t drop it till you finish it!
Ajay Mohan Jain has successfully churned out quite an engaging novel. An alumnus of IIT, Kanpur, the author has once again proved that IITians, in addition to being cerebral and earning millions across the world, can write a book also! The novel stands out because the narrative is lucid and simple with undercurrents of hilarity and sarcasm. The characters are close to genuine. While reading one realises in how many ways we’re similar to them.
A masterful first novel, the book compares to the ‘speaking tree’ that encourages looking within. Family history unfolds social history in an interesting trajectory. Ajay deftly illustrates how Suresh’s life intersects with society’s events. He is a talented new writer of sense with a distinct sensibility. He takes the reader on an emotional journey into how family and traditions define individual choices in life. It's a fast read, but its deeper meaning resonates long after the last page.
