An Eye For My Love is one of the rarest books which deals with the bold topic of corruption, misusing power, violence against woman etc. The author recieves an applause just for writing this wonderful book. The foreword and prologue almost gave me goosebumps even before entering into the story. The author has very well narrated every events with utmost care and has delivered a great message through this book. The little conversation at the beginning of every chapters is a great social message. The author has weaved the story plot in such a way that it never seemed boring. Though, Dhruv killed the politician, it’s not practical in our real life unless we are such a carefree man like Dhruv. But it motivated us to fight this violence. Every characters are close to our heart and the author portrays the emotions of every characters through his simple words and fluent language. Also the book ends with an unexpected turn which we had never dreamt of. It almost left my jaws drop in excitement. Also the author portrayed the reality in today’s society through his words.
The book cover and the title is another great factors which attracts you to grab this book. In the front page, the bullet which crashes the words “An eye” gives you a deep explanation about the story hidden inside. The title is itself unique in its aspects with hidden meaning.
Just lived throughout the book.
