When we are younger, we set goals to reach our Dreams. As we grow up, Money Replaces Dreams. We start plotting our life to earn more money than knowledge. I don’t deny that it is the most essential element of survival but it isn’t the only necessary element, is it? Why do we start ignoring our family to work some extra hours? So that they can bath in those green notes? Sometimes, we get so indulged in oneself that we forget when our loved ones expect from us. If it is a family that is truly in love with members, I bet their priorities include love, care, affection and the time they give to each other.
Perhaps, we fail to understand this until someone punishes us for the act we do.
There are very few errors in the book – some typos, some editing mistakes.
The book cover could have been vibrant. The title misses a period mark but it is a very thoughtful name.

The characters are well established, the idea is fresh and the narrative is smooth. Many techies might be able to relate to some or the other character in the book. Though this is not a love story, the budding romance between Raja and Sneha and the complexities of relationship between married couples (Adi and Shristi) are handled well. I found the discussion over job separation between Uday and his project manager Shrinivas hilarious. Such excerpts are bound to appeal to the readers. The pace is nice and easy and will keep the reader engaged till the end.
I was a little disheartened in the final episodes where the culprit is identified and caught. I was expecting a more intelligent 'whodunit' mystery solving plot! However this is not a deterrent.
A sincere and diligent effort from the author. He has shown a lot of maturity considering this is only his second book.
Truth be told , I received this book in exchange of an honest review . So , S.O.A.R is the 2nd book pen down by author Abir Mukherjee which revolves around the life of three strangers who become friends and then destiny takes them on a ride which change their life forever . Story launched with the voice call received by Adhyayan aka Adi in US from his old acquaintance Rajashekran aka Raja who spew some news of Uday's arrest that makes Adi booked the flight to Banglore on a short notice and this very event triggers the further writing of the plot .
Author has thoroughly worked in characterizing protagonists . Trio Raja , Adi and Uday used to work in same firm as IT experts till the time Uday flagged up an idea of a website that would change the definition of Schooling related stuff in India . Uday is portrayed as an entrepreneur with high spirits to never retreat and is beyond laborious type guy who is ready to move mountains to achieve what he'd set which cost storms in the personal lives of trio . Adi's relation with her Wife Shrishti bolted in a way to showcase the lows experienced by working class Husband-Wives .And what I found most entertaining is the story entangled with Raja and Sneha .
# Have Patience , Good Things take time
# Some smiles hide pain
# With Raja , Adi and Uday's relation author had tried to bolt the fact that Family stays a family no matter what happens .
# Uday's spirits to hit at his aim gives a point of " No Retreat No Surrender ' when it comes to achieving Dreams .
I found this book a bit compact . I felt as if I'm reading a detailed review of some movie , so there's lack of details from the surroundings and is more or less a straight-forward plot .
Fav. Moment :
When Uday and Adi ask Raja about the location of Sneha's Tattoo.
Raja & Sneha's meeting
Sneha fought with her friends
So S.O.A.R is a compact and fun read whose 2nd half keep the reader hooked to sudden change of events .

I bought this after reading another book by Abir Makherjee that was excellent.
Unfortunately there were too many typing errors with letters and sometimes words missing. I gave up on trying to read it.
And by far my favorite character was Rajashekar . He was very relatable and adorable in a lot of ways . All in all a happy read !
Good job Abir . As u said , I was definitely not disappointed with the book . It's a very good attempt being just the 2nd book . Though I want to give it a 5 as a mark of my appreciation , I am giving this a 4 (very good ) hoping the best is yet to come !
