The book is a work of fiction with three youngsters and three middle-aged men. However, let us not talk about the protagonists and about the story. Let us leave this to the readers who are going to read the book.
This review is going to be a bit different because here I am not telling anything about the story. In addition, amongst all the books I have read this book is a bit different. A work of fiction yet a book that will leave you spellbound leaving questions in your mind that will make you think. The book contains an insightful theme with a realistic plot with good pace with scene to scene. Characters are well developed. Clean and lucid writing style makes it more engrossing. In addition, the taglines given to the chapters are also good and added stars to it. The book is a page-turner and is surely an engrossing read only and only if you love reading insightful read with some motivation, self-evaluation. A perfect blend of everything.
Negatives– Firstly, I did not like the cover, as I could not relate to it. Secondly, the length could be a little short as the book gets a little boring in the middle. Shorter length could have helped it in gaining more readers.
Rest, no flaws..!!
