The pace of the story is a bit slow. The flow of the story is smooth. I loved the writing style of the author. It’s apt and gripping. The language used by the author is simple and easy. There are various themes used by the author. Love, friendship, emotions, aggression, passion, each and every emotion are expressed beautifully by the author.

Vihaan looked at the skies, took a deep breath and shouted, ‘I want to be on the hoarding outside her flat!’
Parth did not react right away. After a few minutes, he asked, ‘Sorry? What is that?’

‘She said she doesn’t want to see my face. So, now I want to ensure she sees my face every day the first thing in the morning.’
Parth took a step towards Vihaan. He shrugged his shoulders, confusedly. ‘I don’t understand.’
‘There’s a hoarding outside her flat.’
‘And you want to be on it?’

Witness the roller coaster journey of Vihaan, a college dropout, and Parth, a tea vendor, as they strive to buy the most expensive hoarding space in Ahmedabad.
