•Never Give up on Hope•
Being Good Enough is a journey of Jyoti who lives in Mumbai, hiding from her past who inexorably catches up with her.
Why is she hiding? From whom she is hiding? Witness the journey of Jyoti whose life has not been less than an adventure.
I loved the way the started, making the readers curious. The plot of the story is intriguing filled with mystery and love. I liked the way the author unfolds Jyoti’s promiscuous youth, how religious divide and patriarchal dictates. Each chapter has a story to tell, a journey to witness.
The crisp and engaging narration with an interesting writing style keeps the readers invested in. The story keeps flowing between the past and present of Jyoti. Her love for her son, the mystery with her husband, and her family bond, everything is beautifully described. I fell in love with her and Aman, when she was working with him.
The characters are well developed by the author. Each character has a story to tell. The story shifts between Mumbai and Delhi. The way the author described the bond between Jyoti and her Masi, is beautiful. It’s a bit slow-paced story with a smooth flow of words.
The series of events that took place in Jyoti’s life, that changed her. I loved Joyti’s attitude of never giving up. I liked the story full of struggle, pain, loss and love. Not to forget an unexpected climax and a beautiful cover.
An interesting read full of mystery.
