Excellent presentation, Amazing story telling.Author never lost the track of the story,still can't believe that this is her first book.
Kudos to the Author and her unimaginable imagination. Eagerly looking for your next release Sreeja Vinnakota:-)
The author also successfully touched the importance of deforestation and loosing greenery by mankind between the conversation of Liza and Arya. 'THERE USED TO BE THOUSANDS OF TREES WITH A WONDERFUL AROMA. NOW IT'S ALL SMOKE AND BIG METAL CALLED CARS '. Awesome statement called on the Nations for waking up atleast now.
The craving for money by the mankind was handled by the Author indicates for which the Author is dedicated to.
The script and language give an impression as if an experienced author.
Thanks to AMAZON for bringing such a wonderful book.
The story is about Arya, the protagonist. Arya's father has gone missing. She receives threats from an unknown source that she needs to find and hand over Tanya's crown if she wishes to see her father alive. There are two people who are after the crown. Will Arya find the crown? Will she fight the kidnappers? Where is the crown and what is the crown's story?
The story begins with the incident where Arya's father is kidnapped. I feel that the beginning of the story was done fabulously. It created questions like 'Why' and 'How' in my mind. It was enough fuel to the fire. It made me want to find the answer and kept me hooked on to the story. A series of events unfold later. As you proceed, you encounter numerous questions which makes finding answers mandatory. Such is the 'engagement' aspect of this book. Every chapter surprises you. This book is indeed an awesome read.
I loved the manner in which the author has maintained the mystery aspect of the story. It is revealed in parts - which keeps you interested and entertained throughout the reading session. The characters are well-crafted. I could relate my reading experience with the movie 'The Chronicles of Narnia'. The narration seems realistic. The simple language and 'not-so-complicated' names of characters makes this book an easy read.
If you have been a fan of fantasy novels, the movies like 'The Chronicles of Narnia' or 'Journey to the Mysterious Island', go for this book. It is worth the read.
My overall rating for 'The Day I Started To Think' is 4/5 stars.

well, I dont want to ruin the feel of this beautiful story by revealing everything in this review. I just want to say one thing that I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
Language and Narration-
The perfect narration style keep the readers hooked up till the end. The language is lucid, simple and perfectly written what should be in a perfect novel.well narrated a simple and close to heart story. I couldn't have ask for a better story by debutant author.
Book Cover and Title-
The cover pic is simple ,catchy, too deep, and connected to the plot of the story in its own way.... The title "The Day I started to think " itself has a sense of emotional touch in it along with the tinge of love.
Stories and plots:4.5/5
Final rating – 4.5/5
One and all, I would say “ The Day I started to think ” is a roller coaster ride of magical elements. That doesn't mean that the story is about Angels, Demons and Witches from regular fantasy fictions; but it is more unique and truly mystical.
Thoroughly enjoyed reading the book. I would personally recommend this book to all the book lovers. No one will get bored reading this beautiful tale.
Eagerly waiting for the sequel. A must read book. Thank you.
