A MUST read!
10 December, 2013
THIS BOOK BLEW ME AWAY!
This is the only book which gave me goosebumps in a way no book has ever had. I could not sleep for TWO whole nights after reading it.
Though, not very famous, I fortunately got introduced to it as I was going through the books in my School Library.
I still remember reading it during my trip to Naldehra (a hill station in India), sitting by my hotel room's window.
Short stories of reincarnation (which maybe true) just makes you think twice about the whole concept.
Such rich vocabulary, no editing/printing mistakes, not a single grammatical problem even if it was translated, which is done by Monimala Dhar, and very successfully, at that.
It make you want to relate to the characters, be there in there place, experience what they're experiencing, the cool breeze, the spicy-fruity smell, the edge of the stone...everything is so clear cut and vivid.
I can see there are no reviews for the book and actually feel honoured that I am the first one to do so but also sad, that only few have read it.
So, readers if you by any chance come across this book, DO read it or buy it.
It might change your way of thinking, it did mine. And hats off to Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay for writing such a vivid, smooth-going, gripping and MIND BOGGLING book!
