"Starfish Pickle" takes readers on an adventure through the vibrant locales of Goa, introducing us to the enigmatic Tara Salgaonkar, a skilled commercial diver with a mysterious past. This unconventional tale explores the impact of past secrets and unorthodox life choices. While the book offers intrigue and unique characters, its mixed pacing reading experience.

The protagonist, Tara Salgaonkar, is a strong-willed individual who defies societal norms, and her preference for the ocean over the sky creates an interesting dynamic. The author skillfully captures the essence of Goa, bringing its beauty and charm to life through vivid descriptions and captivating imagery. The setting becomes a character in itself, adding depth and authenticity to the story. The narrative takes an unexpected turn when Tara encounters Bholenath Guruji at a trance party, altering the course of her life. The exploration of this encounter and its consequences adds a sense of mystery and intrigue to the plot. Readers are drawn into Tara's world, eagerly anticipating the revelations surrounding her past and the impact they have on her present.

However, one of the drawbacks of "Starfish Pickle" lies in its pacing. While the story possesses moments of excitement and suspense, there are instances where the narrative slows down considerably, hindering the overall momentum. This mixed pacing can be a source of frustration for readers seeking a consistently engaging experience. In conclusion, "Starfish Pickle" offers a unique perspective on unconventional choices and the impact of hidden pasts. The vibrant setting and captivating characters contribute to an immersive reading experience. However, the mixed pacing, at times slow, prevents the book from reaching its full potential. Overall, it is a so-so read, appealing to those who appreciate character-driven stories with a touch of mystery.
