The story is riveting and the vibrations exuded by the book are chilling. The episodes in the book seem predictable but they aren't. Generally, a reader feels like he/she beholds the shadow of future occurrences and sees the twisted reality hanging by the cliff but the science of deduction fails to make the correct guess. This is where the story delighted me the most and the ultimate revelation of the exposition of truth made the story even more fascinating, compelling and engrossing.
The quotes in the dawn of each chapter showed the gist in the most beautiful and moving way. The poetic beauty of the writer's heart which she expresses through the medium of prose got etched in my heart forever. They achingly moved me and taught me at the same time the most urgent lessons of my life. I could revisit them again and again and derive the same refreshing joy that I felt the first time I read them. It almost feels like a rendezvous with a guru who has explored the deep waters of life and is imparting me the slices of wisdom through the bond of a known companionship.
The writing is lucid yet refined. It shows immense potential and I think writer has a very promising future in the area of literature. Her writing is ripening wonderfully.
The character development and the relationship between characters has been perfectly portrayed through the mighty pen of the writer. The effulgence of climax has been unveiled in an impressive way. Purba is an adept at narrating the story in the simplest way possible and yet, uncovering the most intricate aspects of human beings.
The short length of chapters is another merit of this book. It made the book more intriguing and embellished it with panache.
I earnestly thank the writer who is also a dear friend of mine for showing such faith in penning down an unconventional story. The silent storm of thoughts that gave birth to this offspring of story certainly surely deserves my admiration and heartfelt appreciation. I would also like to read other novels of this dynamic soul who rekindles the Indian literary world with each word that she pens down.
Best wishes. Keep rocking the world with the power of your words and verse! - Abhishek
Canvas of a Mind is full of twists intermingled with beautiful description of Kalimpong. Ipsha with her dreams, insecurities, and rebellious streak resembles a real teenager. Akashi’s concern for her sister is very relatable. Still, I thought the final resolution was a bit rushed.
I recommend Canvas of a Mind to all those who love psychological thrillers.
* I received a review copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
The Author Herself With Her Book
After a lot of ruckus, finally Ipsha meets her stalker cum ardent lover Arjun and falls irreversibly in love with him. What happens when Akashi finds out that her little sis has fallen prey to a drug trafficker and a criminal Arjun, unfolds creatively. The circumstances make Ipsha loathe Akashi vehemently. While Akashi feels that that her little princess has been misbehaving with her under Arjun's spell who has vanished but she fathoms there are many other layers to her sister's personality and that she has been lying to her for a long time. The unbelievable and weaved to precision circumstances never let you put down the book for a moment and I really loved it to the core. There is another wonderful character Vihaan who plays the dark horse. To find out more do read our this must read thriller from Purba.
The title of the book 'Canvas of a Mind' is apt because the protagonist Ipsha more often than not painted the infinite thoughts that flooded her mind on the canvas. It gave her immense peace and perspective.What I loved most about the book was the vivid description of the hill station Kalimpong and the strong character building. I could feel the loneliness that engulfed the two girls after the demise of their parents though they never spoke about it. It was fascinating it read has the author has beautifully conceived and weaved different forms of love and how they can make and break your life. I also found the beginning perfect however I did feel the ending was a little abrupt though absolutely in sync with the plot. Could have been more impact fully built across a few added chapters but that's purely my viewpoint.
I rate this book a 4.5/5 and recommend it to everyone for a light pleasant read. It goes without saying, I thoroughly enjoyed the read and wish the author Purba lots of success and happiness. Trust she keeps writing such masterpieces on and on and drape us in the charm of her weaved fiction forever.
