A COMPACT READ !!!
Goodreads Rating : 4/5
Truth be told , I received this book in exchange of an honest review . So , S.O.A.R is the 2nd book pen down by author Abir Mukherjee which revolves around the life of three strangers who become friends and then destiny takes them on a ride which change their life forever . Story launched with the voice call received by Adhyayan aka Adi in US from his old acquaintance Rajashekran aka Raja who spew some news of Uday's arrest that makes Adi booked the flight to Banglore on a short notice and this very event triggers the further writing of the plot .
Author has thoroughly worked in characterizing protagonists . Trio Raja , Adi and Uday used to work in same firm as IT experts till the time Uday flagged up an idea of a website that would change the definition of Schooling related stuff in India . Uday is portrayed as an entrepreneur with high spirits to never retreat and is beyond laborious type guy who is ready to move mountains to achieve what he'd set which cost storms in the personal lives of trio . Adi's relation with her Wife Shrishti bolted in a way to showcase the lows experienced by working class Husband-Wives .And what I found most entertaining is the story entangled with Raja and Sneha .
# Have Patience , Good Things take time
# Some smiles hide pain
# With Raja , Adi and Uday's relation author had tried to bolt the fact that Family stays a family no matter what happens .
# Uday's spirits to hit at his aim gives a point of " No Retreat No Surrender ' when it comes to achieving Dreams .
I found this book a bit compact . I felt as if I'm reading a detailed review of some movie , so there's lack of details from the surroundings and is more or less a straight-forward plot .
Fav. Moments :
# When Uday and Adi ask Raja about the location of Sneha's Tattoo.
# Raja & Sneha's meeting
# Sneha's fight with her friends
So S.O.A.R is a compact and fun read whose 2nd half keep the reader hooked to sudden change of events .
