My View : ‘The Nidhi Kapoor Story’, a crime-mystery-thriller drama, featuring the pain and overdose of sorrow in the life of individuals winded up with lots of fun and zing.
Through the voice of protagonist author wishes to convey the life of a dejected child , which turns out to be a copacetic variance in the reader’s taste.The story, in combination with pain and sorrow, dishes up variety of flavors to the readers that too with utmost sincerity.If we talk about the supply of oomph, through the series of events it pass on to readers, it keeps reader’s senses alive and energized.
He pen his words with such intense that it forces readers to believe what he says. The story has something or other to play with your mind continuously. It wouldn’t let your mind rest until you crawl towards the last word.It felt like through this book author was branding and promoting cigarette’s brand Stikk,as no one would be as appreciated as Stikk, it’s like it’s one of the author’s favorite player, that he was so in want to feature it in the book.(:p)
The story author demonstrates before readers is full of fun.It has moments of excitement,adventure,conundrum at one shore, while at the other, it has romance, and brutal reality of life.The policy he uses to bring parity among different interludes is flawless.He seamlessly covers the different junctions of the story taking readers along with it.
While you will be counting,’the could-be culprits’ in your list,author has dropped the clue in the halfway, which at the end comes true, snatches the deadly impact from the end,because the beans had already been spilled, and most of the reader could predict in advance as who could be the culprit.Author himself have spoiled the fun to unlock the mystery, and that’s the only loophole I found in this book.If he could have maintain the mystery, then I doubt that I would be able to guess who the felon is.
