Song of a flying sparrow

 
BLURB
 

Chiya is born and brought up in a wealthy business-class family. When her mom Rini, a highly ambitious woman, tries to fix her marriage with a millionaire divorcee, quite senior to her in age, she refuses categorically. As a result an ugly argument ensues between them. Chiya’s life turns upside down when Rini reveals an unpleasant secret pertaining to her life during the heat of the conflict.

Then she embarks on a mission-the sole aim of her life.

What was that secret and the mission thereupon?

To find, explore the novel-Song of A Flying Sparrow-a tale of emotions, love, betrayal, ambitions, greed, cynicism and twisted relations.
 

MY TAKE
 

PLOT:- One with immense potential. It has all the elements of human emotion as mentioned in the blurb. There is nothing wrong in being ambitious as long as it does not affect relationships. The moment it does so lives of those around us are shattered and the most badly affected ones are the young ones.

Like I’ve mentioned earlier the plot has immense potential but I feel it has not been fully explored. There are twists, there are turns some predictable, some unpredictable.

CHARACTERIZATION:- The character of the protagonist and her mother Riya are well developed. However I feel the author has failed to explore the potential of the other characters especially that of Professor Sekhar. He could have contributed more to the story. The characterization of Chanda too failed to impress.

LANGUAGE:- Simple and easy to understand.

PACE:- Fine.

EDITING:- Needs to be tightened. Grammatical errors and wrong usages took away much of the sheen from the story. I’d recommend that the author go in for fresh editing before he brings out the next edition.
 

VERDICT
 

Overall a simple read, one you can finish in one go. I’ll give the book 3 on 5.
