4.0 out of 5 stars Quick breezy read.
By AJ on 27 June 2021
I don’t know how Kiran continues to churn out books after books but she does so with ease.
What I liked about More Things in Hwaven and Earth mwas that the woman protagonist continues to be attracted to men and indeed have sex with them despite her husband’s death (and her innate need to be in contact with him through the occult).
A refreshing change from the usual trope about women turning chaste after a husband’s death.
This is a a book about romance. About friendship. About the sinister. About human nature.

5.0 out of 5 stars An indomitable longing. A tale of love, loss, grief, acceptance, and more.
By Bhana on 28 August 2021
‘When you finally gather the courage to release what you’ve been hanging on to for a while, you realise it is not just a release, but also a relief. It frees you to find something else to hold on to, something else that was also waiting to be held.’

Some stories stay with you long after you’ve read them. This is one such story by Kiran Manral. The protagonist, Kamla Malik, loses her husband, Nihar, and moves from Delhi to Mumbai while still trying to come to terms with the loss of the love of her life. She navigates her present, trying to build a new life for herself. But grief and trauma can’t be easily processed, can they?

There’s also something about the author’s detailing of characters and locations that transports the readers. The story unfolds with events dating back to her childhood in the hills, which gravely add to the present narrative. It is while Kamla is being haunted by the memories and dreams of her late husband, pushing her into dark places in her mind, that her ailing aunt invites her to her crumbling villa in Goa. While there are several geographical locations involved in the story, it’s in Goa where the mystery unfolds.

Kamla Malik’s journey, involving a whirlwind of secrets and emotions, makes you wonder about grief in more ways than one. On one hand, Kamla yearns for Nihar and finds it difficult to let go, and on the other, she meets her aunt’s stepson, Victor, a channel she can depend on to move forward. The instant connection with Victor is what aggravates her process of moving on. But grief is cruel, isn’t it? The narrative shows how Kamla feels torn between her past and her present, and seeks love and redemption not only in her mind but also outside, elsewhere. This is where the author makes the plot even more intriguing for her readers. The lack of closure haunts the protagonist to a level that she chances upon any medium she gets to find answers. The journey she undertakes through places and most importantly, within herself, is a lot relatable for anyone who grieves a loved one, alive or dead.

What I loved most about the book is that it’s unpredictable. Every aspect will leave you longing for more, and there’s never a dull moment. I believe it to be also philosophical. Death shatters us in ways unknown. Sometimes, you not only find a new life in death but it also teaches you how to live.

This enthralling story of complex families, love, loss, obsession and betrayal is not an easy subject. It’s the heart of the story that makes it easy to read and absorb. The captivating writing makes you jump from scenes to locations amidst several states of mind, which are hauntingly beautiful. It’s almost like an indomitable longing.

Don’t miss out on this brilliant read. Everything together makes this book exceptional. The writer, the story, the characters, the realities, the relatability, and the most heartwarming acknowledgement ever. ✨
