Where does this journey take her?
My View :
The exemplar of the story,Leela, poses as the sturdy character throughout the story,being the target of the people’s actions.Her story inspires at many points,the curves and the zig-zag in the life she has discovered, and her actions on the reactions,made her stand among many other,many has gone through the same reactions, but her actions made her different , and that’s why her story needs to be heard.
Her writing style has the quality of delighting reader’s mind,no matter the amount of simplicity she has stirred in her words,her narration soothes the reading journey to a great extent.Simple yet well-articulated,she creates a comfortable ambiance for the readers belonging from any background.Novice or ardent ,be it anyone, the grace in her work is made to reach everyone’s heart.
Authoress has presented each of the events very lucidly and in a bewitching fashion. She injects life in each of her words, which makes it easy to relate with the story, and on the other hand, connectivity with the reader and the protagonist go strong.The series of events lined for readers are moderate in nature, they are neither too new and exciting to hear nor boring or dull instead they played their role in quite an effecting manner to complete Leela’s story.
The only loophole, I gathered from the book is the plot of the book and theme chosen by the author which is very common in nature.We could find the story enveloped in many other books,and so much could be predicted in advance that the book losses its essence in between.
A good read showcasing the tipsy-turvy curves of woman’s life.
Rating : 3.6/5
