The plot of the story is interesting full of twists and turns. The narration of the story is crisp and up to the point. One can relate to the story from the very first page. I liked how the author sequenced each and every event.
The book is all about the publishing business. The author jotted the things that happen in the publishing houses, the planning, organising and everything that it takes to publish a book and make it the best seller.
Themes like friendship, relationships, humour are used by the author to make the story interesting. The witty approach by the author keeps the reader hooked throughout. There are drama and dialogues which keeps the reader invested in.
I liked the character development done by the author. Each character has a vital role to play. I liked Zorah and Akshay’s character the most. Each character is justified in its own way, lending credibility to the story. I liked Zorah’s bold character the most.
The language used by the author is simple and easy. The writing style of the author is witty and gripping . You’ll enjoy each and every chapter of this story.
With each chapter, the story keeps on building great. The pace of the story is medium with a smooth flow.
The author described various emotions in a wonderful way making the story more appealing. The cover and the impressive title made me pick the book, and I don’t regret it.
