It’s a short read, I completed it in one sitting. The writing is very easy and simple. The writer may have kept it a bit long and written more. Initially, I wasn’t much interested because I didn’t like the plotting of scenes, but as I came towards the end, I was engrossed, the story line somewhere touched the chords of my heart. Not a bad read. But obviously could have been better.
My ratings: 2.5/5
