This book marks a new beginning for me as far as book reviewing is concerned. This was the first book that I have officially reviewed as a Tales Pensiever.

My conclusion regarding this book – “The cons notwithstanding, this remains a decent attempt for a debut author especially given the choice of the powerful subject and theme. This is one book that mirrors societal realities in quite an easy to understand manner and while it may not provide answers to the same, it sure will make readers reflect on them.
