The positives of the book are it's slow in the beginning and catches up. The flow is simple. Doesn't complicate. The negatives are as the thrill catches up, it falls down again. Kid getting kidnapped could have more detailing as it would have made it gripping. I find it difficult to guess what happens next. Good job!

To begin off, few first time writers pen their thoughts on self help. Brave stand. Kudos for that.
The positives of the book being, its simple in fact, very simple. It could be comfortable to read and grasp for a person in his/her teens or for whom who haven't tasted the essence of self-help book. For people who have some idea on the same, this wouldn't be of much help. The real time examples quoted with the command could have been written with an introspective style as it is one of the most important tools in self improvement. May be the following chapters, throws light on that. ( i expect it to be so). Finally, a good effort for illustrating examples especially the "Alt" part.
Best wishes!

Imagination is at its peak. I loved the way it went especially cloud speaking to these sisters. Though the fantasy level is too much, it creates a 'light' feel while reading. Good job:) Thumbs up.
P.S: We have still not amended the rules to allow BEINGS land on cloudtains.
The best part:) Loved this sentence so much:)

The story about the doctor was touching. It resembled to that of my cousin who is a doctor. The other chapters are dry. It could have been better!

Though the detailing provided was very high, it made me stay hooked with the first chapter. Second chapter was dry. Moulana Sahib's daughter's life appears like a flash and lags in between. On completing the third chapter, the feel to read more comes up. Best wishes!

The book raises highly first and gets down quickly. Ashni's visit to the village for the first time has been portrayed good and could be felt. As the project of the plane took off, i felt that the technical component say factor of safety etc would be very high for a reader from non technical background. Yet, the linking was good. Good attempt. And hats off for the trailer:)

Hey thanks for your review. I appreciate your concern about the technical jargon but all of them are backed with the detailed explanations and as the project proceeds these terms vanish.

The book starts slowly and corporate hitting outs can be reduced a bit. The third chapter actually, sets the tone. I felt the last chapter went quickly compared to others. Candidly putting out, the feel after reading the third chapter was as similar to that post reading Durbaar, by Tavleen Singh. Good Job Mam:)

Page turner. But in the second chapter, it appears as of there is some slowdown. But again in the third chapter rushes through very fast. It was thrilling and never appeared like a debut novel. Good job. Would like to read further:) All the best!

Khalid's association with world of terror after inspired by money, contacts, reminds of the book Growing Up with Laden. Upon reading the third chapter, the guessing plot begins. Waiting to read more:) Good job!

The feel of melancholy as one experiences post reading the poem 'Solitary Reaper' emerges especially after reading the second chapter. Well constructed and the message has been delivered well. Rather than comparing the sayings/thoughts in Holy book as right versus wrong, it allows oneself to give a think on the same. All the best:)
