In the story, the central character, Sarah, takes centre stage in a story that revolves around her life. As an upstanding young woman hailing from a privileged family, the initial chapters delve into the intricacies of Sarah's family dynamics and relationships. However, the tranquil façade is soon shattered when a traumatic incident from her childhood comes to light. In her early years, Sarah suffered a debilitating injury that confined her to a hospital bed for an extended period. Yet, this physical ailment pales in comparison to the emotional torment she would later endure. The story takes a dark turn as it unveils a disturbing episode from Sarah's past. Two men, her father's friends, Mr Agarwal and Mr Singh, are revealed as sinister figures who subjected the innocent 11-year-old girl to an unimaginable ordeal.
The narrative does not shy away from the painful reality of Sarah's experience. It is not merely a physical violation but a profound mental and emotional scar that will haunt her for years to come. The author's ability to tackle such a sensitive and distressing subject matter with finesse and honesty is commendable, drawing the reader into a story that is as harrowing as it is compelling. As the story unfolds, it becomes evident that Sarah's journey is one of resilience and strength, as she confronts her traumatic past and seeks justice.
The book is penned in a straightforward and accessible language, making it suitable for even novice readers. It's truly commendable that the author chose such a bold and challenging topic for her debut work, requiring immense courage to tackle. While the narrative is engaging, there is room for improvement in terms of the storytelling. Beginner readers will find it a comfortable read, but for avid readers, there are noticeable gaps and inconsistencies in the storyline that might catch your attention. There are numerous puzzles within the story that don't quite fit together seamlessly. It seems as though the book might have been written hastily, resulting in unclear timelines. In my opinion, the book should ideally be around 150-200 pages so that the author can properly conclude all incidents with a clear timeline. This is important because readers might get a bit confused about when each incident occurred (Perhaps this is due to an unclear timeline or the sudden ending of the incident). The book should end with a proper closure because the storyline is very strong, and I feel that everything should be narrated properly.
An area in need of improvement is the narrative flow, as it appears to contain plot contradictions. Additionally, as previously noted, some incidents feel incomplete, leading to abrupt conclusions that may leave the reader unsatisfied. Extending the book's length by a few pages could offer a more comprehensive exploration of the story, allowing for the resolution of loose ends and ensuring a more satisfying and well-rounded reading experience.
Nonetheless, the book's brevity, with approximately 100 pages, offers a swift and fast-paced read that might appeal to readers looking for a concise yet impactful story. With a bit of fine-tuning, the narrative could reach its full potential and provide a more satisfying experience for all types of readers.
