What a place to stop!!! Intrigued and excited to read further...The initial pages lack pace, but the book definitely picks up and the characters slowly get relatable... Good work!!

I found a freshness in the writing style. The characters are very impressive and so is the story. I would like to read the whole story to find out how Rita's life shapes up.

This is a star performer for me. A real cruise into the 'journey of life' as the author described it very aptly. I am looking forward to reading the whole story and find out what happens next.

I think the author's earlier book was at least on the track of the story. The story is ordinary, there is a confusion between the characters. The "what next" element is totally missing

The story is very mundane, I would have given it a half star, if it was available on BGB.

I congratulate the writer for this impressive style of writing. The story touches the heart with its detailed nuances, the pieces about the fridge magnets, the jammed printer and the heavy handbag are so realistic that they make you think twice about your own life.

I am finding this story to be very motivating as it builds up. I am anxious to know what happens to Rita next and how does her life shape up . The story would help those who have been through a breakup or have been unlucky in love.

"Cruise to Life" is a very engaging story with an engrossing theme. The little details about the characters and their thoughts are worth reading. The flow of the story gets full marks from me. I cannot wait to find out what happens next in the story.

The characters are well developed with a very strong conviction. The story line is also intriguing and wants you craving for more. I have seen a well composed book after a long time.

The characters are built up with great detailing and precision which makes the story very interesting and keeps the reader deeply engaged. The 'carrying of dead weight' and 'printer getting jammed' are very real life relevant experiences which make the story very interesting. Looking forward to reading the whole book.

A little confused that its overcast as they drive towards the dock and then the sun shines upon the waves. Otherwise, characters are interesting. The timeline again needs to be thought out better.

Dear Lesley, thanks for the update. The regular overcast followed by sunshine was a common feature near the ocean I had visited .

Very dragging, no depth to the characters or emotions, the story not paced well. Nothing seems to be happening. Not my cup of tea at all

Good effort.
I am a little confused though, about how Rita, Goldie, Jolly and Shipra can be friends who grew up together since Rita seems a lot older than Shipra (Rita’s been working for a decade and a half while Shipra is a post grad student? I get the feeling there is at least 10 years between them?).
Also nothing much seems to happen in the third chapter (at least when compared to the first two). The pace seems to drag a little once the group gets on to the ship.
Apart from those little details, language in general, can do with some rework

I would like to suggest the author to read two books currently on BGB.
1)End To Start
2) Summons from the creator
You can learn to give a pace to your story from the above two.Good effort even though.

The writing in present tense always seem very tricky, but the author has done a commendable job of handling the flashback and current times. Full marks to language and narration. I want to have more of show rather than tell. E.g a sentence says 'Jolly seems to be thrilled...' instead we need to show the thrill, 'Jolly high-fived with Shipra...'

Thanks for the encouraging feedback Ruchi. I am also thankful for the feedback on 'show and tell' which I am going to incorporate in my works.

Very impressive and natural style of writing
Keeps the reader engrossed. However the real test is how the story progresses. The synopsis gives equal weightage to both the sisters but the summary says its a story about the elder one. I would love tp read further to understand how the author etches out her character.
Analogies are mostly good. However that bit where she greets the caller with a Hi Manav seems to be a bit out of place. Probably the writer could include one two lines prior to it so that it becomes clear that she is immersed in Manav s thoughts.

Overall good effort but please put up more chapters. Love and my best wishes. Keep writing!!
