What is best about this book is that you can connect with Raj pretty well since he is like a guy-next-door or someone you might be resembling someone you know from your circle. It very much discuss about the aspects or usual happenings in youth-life; the tendency to go on wrong paths or go for bad choices with the heat of age. The note from Raj’s professor is the highlight of the book; i loved how such a simple thing brought huge impact n Raj’s life… sometimes the problem might seem so large but solution will be so simple that you just have to open your eyes well to see it. I loved the motivational portion of the book, it nicely conveys the theme of the book also the the title is very catchy and beautiful. Simple writing style and plot makes it all the more effective in reaching the reader.
The plot-line could have been more creative; a few portions were detailed more than necessary. Writing style holds scope for improvement.
My rating for this book is 4 out of 5 and would like to recommend it to my readers!
