The book is very well written with unexpected twists which hooks us up with the story. The title justifies the book and the author uses simple and elegant language to convey his thoughts. The first person narration makes us travel with the book. The grandmother’s words about dresses and gender serves as an awareness. Also his father’s words that only love can achieve everything and not revenge is a much needed social message because everyone values their revenge spirit more than love. The proved our guess wrong when he revealed the real motive behind the death of Tapasya and that’s where the author proved his success by maintaining the suspense.
The author could have added more emotions to the death of Tapasya and also the accident at the end was a bit dramatic. But the author proved his success in every twists he laid. Also the last paragraph of the book brought smile to my face as the author concluded it very well. I own ponytail now.
