The Story That Never Started || The Bookscape Book Review ~ Book Marathon Review 7.

Hello people. I’m back again with a new review. I know, I know you have seen me a lot this month and are probably tired of me now but hey!!! It’s my blog and I love reading so here I am. I am glad that things are getting easier in the U.S.A. as my relatives are telling me that things are smooth there…somehow. Let’s hope for the best everywhere on this earth. We seriously need a break from this world but we can’t go to space right??? So let’s read books and explore a magical universe. So let’s start this review, shall we??? Let’s go people.

So I got contacted by Bookscape Company and they gave me this book and I got paid to write an honest review. I am really enjoying reading books as this year I get to explore so many new genres. I can’t wait to read other books😍😍. Now come along people, let’s start reviewing this book.

I sincerely thank Piyush Gupta and The Bookscape Reviewers Program for providing this opportunity in exchange for an honest review.

•My Review.

This novel was an excellent read for me. If to be honest, I was not quite interested in reading it as I thought it would be a common thriller novel that all Indian authors are writing these days but this one was totally unique. This novel had so many characters and the main 3 characters; Dhir, Mohit and Sahil were so cleanly and smoothly described. Their back story presentation and how they met each other and embarked on this wonderful journey was portrayed so flawlessly. I personally liked the character of Dhir and Roshni. I did find a bit of errors in the story and I somehow couldn’t connect to all the characters but one thing that I loved about this book is that it portrayed the effect of Terrorism on Muslims.

Being a Muslim girl myself, I know how people look at a Muslim family and during terrorist attacks, we are either directly or indirectly targeted, even though we did nothing but it’s pointed to us. Piyush Gupta won my heart in just a few pages where he showed Dhir’s harshness over Sahil for being a Muslim. This author explored all corners and left no stone unturned in the writing of this book. He has added a touch of the LGBTQ essence, the Muslim community, the interfaith marriages, the love of brother and sister, the corruption in India where a man can willingly steal poor people’s money and not get pointed at. I must say that I will be keeping an eye out for his next book and can’t wait to read what he is writing next.

One more thing that I would like to point out here that is not for the review but just my opinion.

He wrote about Islamophobia despite being a Hindu and he also presented a Muslim family and depicted their life but in no way did I find anything offensive. So this guy clearly did a great job and many of you must be thinking why am I taking this issue seriously, it’s just a Muslim character in the book but portraying that character and giving it a proper and decent POV is very difficult and Piyush Gupta won my heart at this point.

So that’s it for today. I hope you loved this review. I will be back soon with one more review and hope you all are safe and sound. Take care and see you soon, until then…

  1. Your Review narrates how you emotionally experienced each and every moment mentioned in the book and that’s the quality of a good reader. Very good review. But “Being a Muslim girl myself, I know how people look at a Muslim family and during terrorist attacks, we are either directly or indirectly targeted, even though we did nothing but it’s pointed to us”…… This line of yours I love to defer. Why? M a Hindu and worked with many Muslims in professional life and have Muslim friends too…. I consider them equal to me. So it’s not just being Muslim that can target people of this community by anyone. Never ever feel so. If someone is telling you something, analyze it first and decode why he/she is saying so, and then react. Hope m able to communicate my view. Keep up the good work

  2. Islamophobia is a terror that rots our society. So is transphobia. Being a Hindu if the author showed the courage to point our this point it’s great of him. Loved your review and it intrigues me to read the book.

    Sounds like a thriller combined with other genres and sensitive issues. Looks like a read I’ll enjoy thoroughly. Well penned


  10. As a Muslim myself, I totally need to read this if it has covered the topic of Islamaphobia. Thats really inpressive that the author understands and can help readers be aware of the situation.


  11. I would like to appreciate the author for choosing such topics. Great work!
