here are two motives of reading a book. 1: You enjoy it. 2: You can boast about it.
|Basics of the book|
|Story Line/Plot||Collection of letters-from a mother to her 6 children|
|No. of Characters||7 Leads|
|Tone of writing||Personal, Emotional, Loving and Real.|
|Language||Expressive, toned, balanced and reaches to the reader,easily,in an instant.|
|My take on the book|
|Do I recommend||Surely|
|Reasons being||>The first of its kind book in the form of letters that I’ve read.>It touches the right chord whether you’re a parent or not.
>Each letter tells a real anecdote that took place between the author and her children-individually and collectively.
>High on emotional level yet practical including life’s ups and downs.
>Never feels like you’re reading a life story of a celebrity and her family.
>It consists of the all fears, concerns, appreciations, happy and sad moments that of any parent in this world.
>A wonderful way of putting things across by a parent in the form of letters.
>It’s one of those kinds which the reader would want to re-read at several junctures of life.
>Available in Marathi & Gujrati as well.
|On the other hand||>Sometimes the feelings get repetitive [but I must mention that this is a negligible downside]|
