Aditya Nighot came a long way from ‘U n Me its Complicated’ with this second book of his with regards to writing style, plot, character framing and sequencing incidents with coherence. He indeed did a remarkable job in bringing out a book which not only falls into romance genre but also focus on social issues and a message to ponder upon. The concept of encorporating the backdrop of mbbs college which he is very much familiar with is impressive and the idea of serial killer makes it intriguing. The characters are used well to bring out what is to be conveyed. Its packed with everything to make it a good read.
The book reminded me of his first book in few places which i think the author is not yet out of that plot’s hangover. A few places made me feel it could havve pulled out better than this.
I will rate this drama- packed delight 4 out of 5 stars. Grab this page turner in a blink of an eye, you will like it 🙂
