Every story has its own soul and are worth reading. I found the cover very intriguing and mysterious. It truly depicts the essence of the Pain | Taboo | Stain | Sexual Inhibition | PMS which are the 5 period problems featured in the book. The title is very colloquial and suits the idea very well. 2 day down talks about freedom from not just period problems but various norms within and outside of us in the urban society that we are a part of.
The vocabulary and use of language is simple yet efficient.

❇️ Rating: 4🌟🌟🌟🌟/5🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
The stories individually however could have seen more development in terms of plot and character. I feel that the stories were not very well-paced or very lucid and coherent. It was not very easy to understand at some points.
In terms of the title, the subtitle to be specific, I did not see much of the ‘freedom’ aspect as written. Nonetheless, the author has really shed significant light on women health issues, especially pertaining to periods that are not very well known. In that effect, it proved quite enlightening. In this way, I think this book is perfect when it comes to gaining consciousness and awareness about women especially in regards to their monthly ‘womanly problems’. The society has reached a point where it is ready enough to acknowledge and pay attention to these issues and not just disregard them as something very frugal. The ways in which these stories are presented are also significant as they have been heavily influenced by a very realistic tone.
Overall a very much enjoyable and at times, a bit depressing (because of its realistic portrayal of these women).
I enjoyed this book and I rate it a 3.5/5 stars.
