I don’t DNF books so easily, specially those which I get as review books and I have agreed upon them.
A request from author about book, I agreed on seeing Blurb & 4+ ratings on goodreads. Here is my Honest review in return of the review copy.
After putting in lots of efforts I couldn’t get through this book.
I have kept this book, may be when I become more older I will go back to this book and read it full.
My problem while reading book :
There were too many characters involved. I don’t like those books that can’t justify who the main character in 20-30 pages. And for this, I had read 110+ pages. But it was hard to pin point on the main character, there were people moving in & out of the book.
The Language used, was mix of Hindi, Malayalam and English. And MANY curse hindi words. Also words like *chakke* , I mean really ? You want to indulge readers into such language to make your point ?
I couldn’t take such language where people are degraded by their sexuality or race.
This book does both.
The hydro dam, details kept pouring in about this project. I felt like I was reading ‘How to build a Dam’ kind of book.
I may be a little less known in History, but calling a Punjabi as Pakistani. Isn’t that justifies my History. There is time and again this is done, by mistake or really an unknown history act. I am not sure yet.
The Title of chapters were in different languages, and I couldn’t understand what a non hindi reader will understand of this?
Unnecessary italics came in and went out. Not sure WHY?
For now this book, wasn’t meant for me. I seriously wish to give this another try, when I am less full of thoughts, because people have given it as 3-5 stars.
I would like to thanks Author for providing me the book in return of an honest review.
