Inside the heart of hope – a book of 121 pages which teaches us the important of life and also insist our heart to fight for what we deserve. The book is a perfect amalgamation of love, faith, hope, friendship and thirst for dream. The author has very well narrated the story and the first person narration helps us to travel along with the book. The events were narrated in present sense which deteriorates the interest in the read. The words were simple and the author has very well weaven them to provide us an interesting story. The last pages of the book teaches us some life lessons which should be followed by everyone. Though the book doesn’t has much twists, it proves to be a refreshing light read. The author could have explained the success story of the second surgery in more detail since it misses the charm and emotion which a person feels after undergoing a hopeless surgery. This is an inspirational read which injects you with a hope to live, no matter how bad your life. The cover and title very well suits the book and also the blurb gives an insight of what’s hidden inside.
Verdict : A book to teach you that life can become worse, but don’t give up.
