My goal for 2018 was to diversify my TBR in terms of the authors and genres I read. AMODS sounded really different from everything I’d so far and I decided to go and ahead and experiment with this one.
About the book
Saying that this book was a successful experiment wouldn’t be entirely wrong. It most certainly diversified my TBR in terms of the type of books I read.
This one focuses more on the narration than dialogue. Dialogues are sparse, and most of the story is told in description. Like a third person account.
I’d say that this book came across more as Sumitra’s biography, or maybe an essay on Sumitra’s career and the difficulties she faced.
The book is nice. Interesting too. I’d call this a significant achievement because the time of the book is very monotonous. As are the characters.
Most characters that Sumitra encounters in her journey have compromised on their morals in one way or another. Almost of these episodes sound very similar to each other. She does meet a few people who haven’t but the former easily overwhelm the latter.
The book also becomes a heavy read because of the heavy narration.
And yet, I was intrigued to know what happens next. How does Sumitra fare in her journey? I know this sounds ironical and weird too, but this book is as relaxing as it is heavy.
