Book Review :

A Knotty Affair – as the name suggests (or one might assume) is not about an affair between a boy and a girl. Instead it is talking about the affairs in ones life and how it shapes the future. The cover art is also very different.

The book is divided into various sections of his life. Author has called them ‘defense’ not sure why but they are well split. Honestly the blurb doesn’t do justice to the story line, his college life is only a small part of the story, rest all revolves around his later years. Which are rather interesting. I liked his involvement with Ruhi and how unexpected twists in life gives him what he desires most.

Ruhi and Viraj are the focus of the book, however, there are other characters who associate themselves with the story and are developed well along the path.

The style of writing is simple, lucid and clear but too much clarity makes it absurd and boring. The language could have been better though the flashback technique is flawless. The book is short though it has 228 pages but the short pages makes it easy and one can complete the book in one day only. The editing and proof reading needs attention. The plot construction had some loopholes in it.
