BOOK REVIEW: Lemon Girl by Jyoti Arora

Sometimes, when in life, there aren’t enough twists and turns, my suggestion is to pick a book that has enough twists and turns to keep you interested. A book in that kind of category might be hard to find when you need it the most, but sometimes you just have to look on your book-shelf, read some back cover blurbs and Viola! You did it. Now go back to your comfort zone and start reading it.

Similar production is Jyoti Arora’s Lemon Girl. The book is full of aforementioned twists and turns that goes with the character reflecting their lives as real as our reality is present in front of us. The book is a fast pace read as it alternates between the first person narratives.

To indulge this book in your intellectual there is a definitive understanding of characters, to question their motives, and analyse them rationally. I feel the character of Arsh, the narrator other than the protagonist, is the way to do so.

I have talked a lot about alternative or multiple narratives in the earlier book reviews, and it always grab my attention, when this element is used properly, that is driving the plot forward, as done by the author of this book, the book becomes an enjoyable read too.

This book is a good read, a perfect match if you are looking for something different from you usually read. It touches a theme that the society, in the awe of itself, looks upon rather gruesomely and I think that is something needs to be change.

I credit the author for the work and congratulate her, because the way she has described the events of this book, in my view is a difficult task.
