The author was recommended by a friend and is supposed to be an Indian bestselling writing novelist. But the book was a disappointment. The language was uninspiring and rather pedestrian and the words did not paint a picture in my mind. The story is set in the mountains for the first part but you do not feel that while reading it. Also the writing was very amateurish. The story line is good but the writing lets it down. Maybe this was not the author's best efforts. My comments are only on this book. Hope to read a better novel from the same author soon.
