About asha krishna

Reading is a passion and reviewing just an extension of it. I hope to write my own novel one day, but till then, read up as much as I can, (especially the new ones) to find out how they do it and where they can do better.

It was great reading the chapters. I admit, I was a bit cynical at first. The description sounded like the movie "Roja" but it piques interest. What helps is the fact that it says novella on the jacket. It kind of sets of the expectations, which is not a lot! However the pages are a very pleasant read. The writing flows well. The manuscript could use some proofreading, but that can be easily taken care of. The narrative builds up well and the characters build up the story very nicely.
A light read as suggested but the writing is good. Good luck Deepa!

The first three chapters are engrossing and I am curious to learn what else is the author going to touch upon in the subsequent chapters.
I can very much relate to this book since I am based in the UK and have two kids of my own. With its eye catching cover and a great title, I can see it being gifted to NRI parents!! :)

Anyways, I have a few suggestions to offer. There are some proofing errors. Secondly, it is not clear that the author is talking about Pavan who is her husband. Although the novelty of the subject wears off after a couple of pages, the amusing anecdotes and the superb writing style keeps the interest piqued.

I loved what I read and would love to read more! Thank you for the opportunity to peek into an interesting manuscript.
It was a delightful experience!
