“Be full of acceptance, love will follow”
Iridescent Life by Sonal Bharija Singh is her take on life and everything in it in 19 chapters. It’s a non-fiction which talks about various aspects of life like childhood, love, friendship, marriage etc. Author also talks about some serious topics like women liberation, culture and society, depression and regrets.
Each chapter starts with a quote and has some life lesson but not in a preachy way. These are life lessons which can be taken from small acts of everyday life. It’s a pretty straightforward book. Few chapters are a bit confusing as multiple topics have been raised in a single chapter and you might not understand the actual point. Otherwise, it’s very skillfully written with easy, to-the-point language.
Different thoughts and philosophies shared by author are relatable. It’s an extremely shot read which you can finish in 1-2 hours.
My Rating: 3/5
The chapters in the book touches every single aspect of life that it may face. For example, being healthy, divorced, love, God, rebellion, chaos, calmness and much more. The book is narrated in first person where the author describes her life and draws Morales from it. Even, she explains how in different ways she can be motivated to write on different topics.
There weren't much grammatical errors in the book as such and the chapters weren't that lengthy. Also, unlike other non fiction books in the market these days, the book isn't boring and that makes this 106 page book worth that one read that everyone should pick up once in his/her lifetime. The takeaways from the book are diverse and everyone is sure to learn something or the other from it.
As for the cons, for an avid reader, this book doesn't suit the bill. Also, it is targeted to almost specific group of people. It is surely interesting but somehow I felt that the book couldn't touch me the way I wanted it to. There was lack of compactness in the writing of it which, if there, could've made this one more than just a one time read. For me, this one was 3.5 out of 5 and I would love to read more from the author.
As I mentioned in the theme, the book is about the Author’s take on life which anyone can relate to. The book brings about self- realization which is the basis of life and which when done right makes it easier to take on anything in life. After all, understanding oneself will make us better and judge situations and act accordingly. The book has 19 chapters which are inspired by her own experiences and her own life and thoughts the way she has accepted her life in all the colors as she believes that “there are more colors to life than just black and white". However, I did find few places contradictory to the point that was initially made and some minor grammatical errors. On a lighter note, I would suggest the women folk giving this book a read to improve self-realization.
Book Review: Iridescent Life by Sonal Bharija Singh
Title: Iridescent Life
Author: Sonal Bharija Singh
Iridescent Life by Sonal Bharija Singh is a non-fiction filled with thoughts, philosophies and principles based on her experiences as well as her acceptance of life. Altogether there are nineteen chapters of life stories. The narration is made from a person’s point of view which is applicable to everyone. There are many kinds of relationships we tolerate on a daily basis. This book can guide you to comprehend relationships either positive or negative ones with courage and perseverance. Even with our marvelous brain and its memory power and thinking abilities, we are still suffering from gloominess, melancholy and stress. Ways of coping up stress by understanding the situation and reacting according to it is beautifully explained in this novel. This is a self-realization book mainly written for women.
This short novel is straight to the point without being draggy. The topics covered are notable and significant. However, clarity is missing in some chapters where the author tries to address multiple issues at the same time which makes the paragraph jumbled up. The title is interesting as it depicts the fundamental ways to achieve a lustrous and fulfilling life. I like the cover of this book. The simple picture of the woman shows us that this self-enlightening book is especially made for the womenfolk. The language of the author is decent. The descriptions are good but sometimes become dreary due to the jumbled sentences. The main theme discussed in this book is relationship and life. Overall this is a short and light read with good topics and discussions.
My Rating: 2.5/5 Stars
