Pros:
Simple, picturesque, sweet setting.
Nice characters.

Cons:
Average story, feels rehashed. Can introduce some new element to make it stand out.
Simple writing, can improve.

Would I buy the book to find out what happens next? Maybe. 50-50.

The characters come to life, as does their environment. I would love to see what happens to Appa and Aziz as they grow and change.

I read a few chapters and found it interesting, would like to read it further. Some of the metaphors are beautiful but you seem to get a bit carried away with them. Apart from that, its all good so far!

The story premise is good and the growth of the plot is interesting enough, but at times the narration fails to convey the desired impact. It reads like a newspaper story than a story. But i would still recommend it because it has a good plot and development

Simple story, simple execution, easy to read. Sometimes that's all it takes. I might have given it one more star had it no been for some of the misplaced metaphors.

Story line is definitely relevant, given the times we live in. Pace is good too.

The writing is quite basic though, so am hoping the actual events in the story make up for it. I will need to read a bit more to rate this manuscript objectively. However, I give it two stars based on what I have read.

A book is an entire new world between two covers. Once the first sentence is written the story takes on a life of its own. To put a new thought into the reader's mind or provide a moment of escape. Writing remains my first love.
