Writing Style- 3.5/5
Things were never the same for five ordinary individuals who were lost at crossroads and there was no way back. They had no other choice but to take a plunge into their deepest fears and leave the rest to destiny. The individuals were tested away from their comfort zones and it produced abstruse results: A Ph.D. scholar fights to win a pizza making contest and a tennis prodigy runs for his life on a war-torn, bloodied Island.
Extreme circumstances and their consequences made these ordinary individuals extraordinary. Was the test imposed on them by someone? Or did they invite it on themselves? Blue Moon Day is that Once in a Blue Moon story which questions an individual’s priorities, ridicules worldly routines and finally redefines happiness.
Five different people. Five different stories. Five different paths yet all get united and at last, and find their true meaning in life. Insightful theme with a steady pace from one scene to another makes it a comfortable read. The stories are well linked. The author has maintained a good balance. However, the descriptive writing style makes it a bit dull in the between as some chapters are stretched more than needed. However, the letters at the end of each chapter steal the show. The messages are fantastic. The real page-turner. Overall, a good book for some serious life lessons. Afterall, life is all about living and not just counting days.
