LET ME GO: Book Review

Book Blurb:

Indira Kelkar, free-spirited and rebellious, had no complaints about life. She had doting parents, an unparalleled passion for mountaineering, and a best friend in Anshuman Kale. And to top it off, she had fallen head over heels in love with a much older Kapil Chauhan.

Why then is she trapped in a hospital bed with locked-in syndrome and an impending euthanasia appeal?

Her only hope now is Anshuman, once her best friend, but now in Australia with many reasons to hate Indira after a bitter fallout six years ago. Anshuman chooses to place his life in Australia on hold, despite his soon-to-be wife’s objections and travels to his home country in an attempt to be there for his childhood friend.

With modern medicine failing and Indira’s hopes dwindling, Anshuman is short on time and ideas, until an epiphany dawns upon him.

But is it all too little and too late?

My Review:

“Let me go” is a combination of friendship, hardships, love, bitter truth and reality. The book has strong connection to reality and set a perfect example of true friendship. All the characters have strong personalities. I get amused by Indira Kelkar, the female protagonist of the book. Sometimes her character made me angry and sometimes made me sympathized towards her. You need a strong coffee and a Sunday afternoon to read this novel. 

Shriram Iyer is a promising author. He has done well beyond my expectation level. He has put the emotions through words correctly; he neither exaggerates things nor rushes the things.

This book is highly recommended to all Indian writing fans, those have soft corner for melodrama. I will give the book 4 out of 5 stars for the authors writing style and simple yet strong story line.   

I got this ebook from the author in exchange for an honest review.
