Needs to be revisited to make it eye-catching and appealing.


Frustrated with their current jobs, Uday, Adhyayan, and Rajasekaran team up to start an innovative business, non-existent in India until then. Ignoring all pragmatic aspects of life, they chase their dreams with immense pleasure. However, their journey is no cakewalk, as they confront financial crisis and rejections soon. Uday plays a business trick to triumph over that uninfluenced market; it works initially, but soon boomerangs, blowing the team apart. The police arrests Uday accusing him of illegal activity by his organization.

Were there any blemishes in their plan or was it just a typical Indian market, reluctant to accept an un-experimented concept? Will they be successful in implementing their innovation, staking their hard earned money, stable jobs, relationships, and life ‘S.O.A.R is the story of chasing a dream, quandary between desire and responsibility, friendship and love. Join the gutsy journey of three young entrepreneurs.


STORY-LINE – A Simple read? Yes. Realistic? Well, I wouldn’t say it is totally realistic. There are events/ situations which are hard to believe. That said, what I liked about the storyline is the thought process that must have spurred the author to pen this book. While S.O.A.R is all about crossing hurdles and achieving one’s dreams, the book brings to fore a few things that are a norm these days – 1) People switch jobs easily without batting an eyelid. It comes to them as naturally as changing their clothes. 2) Youngsters unlike their elder counterparts are ready to take risks to achieve their dreams. 3) People are so crazy about achieving success that they often give a deaf ear to sound advice/ are indifferent to the trauma caused by their actions, to their beloved ones. 4) The fall-out of not being able to strike a balance between one’s professional and personal life………

There is a bit of humor, a bit of romance, a bit of deceit, but overall it is all about trying to live one’s dream.

PACE- There are times when one has to go back and forth to get a hold on what actually is happening. This is because the transition from present to past to present is often abrupt. This has affected the pace of the story to a great extent.

EDITING – Needs to be tightened. Certain usages don’t seem to fit in well with the context/ story and tend to become stumbling blocks.


Overall a nice read, one that needs a little fine-tuning to make it more enjoyable. I’ll give the book 3 on a scale of 5.
