REVIEWED BY SOHINEE DEY
No one loves to be renters for ever. Everyone wants to build or buy a house of their own where they can live out of their own accord and doesn’t have to follow rules set up by a landlord and keep a good rapport with him/her to make sure that he/she doesn’t come down knocking at their door asking them to empty the place.
Chanchal Sanyal has captured this sequence of hopping from one place to another, looking for a place of dwelling of a middle aged married couple. It’s not just about looking for a new place of residence, but the difficulties they have to experience and the times which makes their relationship vulnerable.
Professor M.B. and his designer wife Roshni had always dreamt of owning a house of their own in the urban Gurgaon. It’s a particular complex that they have set their eyes on but the up and coming complex is still in its initial stage.
There are various themes intermingled together and several other characters who tests the relationship of this couple.
The story is relatable and is something which people deal with in their lives. So, it definitely holds true to reality. The plot even though it’s something which happens on a daily basis isn’t really talked about in a book. So, coming across such a relatable plot was really a good thing and it was developed all the way to the end. The sentence structuring was also good. The book was very balanced in all aspects.
There were a few grammatical errors here and there but they can be overlooked given the engaging plotline.
POESY IN CHRYSALIS RATING : ⭐⭐⭐.8 / ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
