✍️ The narration is good .
✍️ I felt the title a good and attractive one .
✍️ THE PLOT idea is interesting as author tried to blend sci-fi with crime thriller .
✍️ In some places I felt that the story was little bit exaggerated .
✍️ THE charecters are portrayed well .
✍️ Title is justified for the story but the book cover could have been made a little more attractive . I personally didn't feel that the book cover is going well with the story ✍️ The tale is interesting and engaging, narration is smooth.
Cover shows the exactly what goes in the book. Cover is good looking with so much bright colours
There are two stories going at the same time. One is about ishita and other is about shweta. Ishita don't have any clue about her past and shweta is running from her past.
The both character development is very strong. I loved development of female character.
Talking about plot it is well developed. But, i felt like story is little bit dragged by author. It can be cut down to a little short. The twist and turns are good one( not every twist and turn)
The only part I loved most is sci-fi. The language very easy and lucid. The title goes good with plot but, cover can be made little brighter.
In a nutshell if your looking for sci-fi with crime this is for you.
I really loved Ishita’s character not because of the role she plays but because the metaphor she deploys from the very beginning in the plot. I wonder which is preferable, to walk around all your life swollen up with your own secrets until you burst from the pressure of them, or to have them sucked out of you, every paragraph, every sentence, every word of them, so at the end you're depleted of all that was once as precious to you as hoarded gold, as close to you as your skin - everything that was of the deepest importance to you, everything that made you cringe and wish to conceal, everything that belonged to you alone - and must spend the rest of your days like an empty sack flapping in the wind, an empty sack branded with a bright fluorescent label so that everyone will know what sort of secrets used to be inside you?
Not worth living for is a book which will make you make you live once again. It shows pain keeping Love in the background. It portrays secret amidst of transparency. Pain is a pesky part of being human; I've learned it feels like a stab wound to the heart, something I wish we could all do without, in our lives here. Pain is a sudden hurt that can't be escaped. But then I have also learned that because of pain, I can feel the beauty, tenderness, and freedom of healing. Pain feels like a fast stab wound to the heart. But then healing feels like the wind against your face when you are spreading your wings and flying through the air! We may not have wings growing out of our backs, but healing is the closest thing that will give us that wind against our faces. The book circumscribes not only in living life, but also to feel Life. For everything in this journey of life we are on, there is a right wing and a left wing: for the wing of love there is anger; for the wing of destiny there is fear; for the wing of pain there is healing; for the wing of hurt there is forgiveness; for the wing of pride there is humility; for the wing of giving there is taking; for the wing of tears there is joy; for the wing of rejection there is acceptance; for the wing of judgment there is grace; for the wing of honor there is shame; for the wing of letting go there is the wing of keeping. We can only fly with two wings and two wings can only stay in the air if there is a balance. Two beautiful wings is perfection. There is a generation of people who idealize perfection as the existence of only one of these wings every time. But I see that a bird with one wing is imperfect. An angel with one wing is imperfect. A butterfly with one wing is dead. So this generation of people strive to always cut off the other wing in the hopes of embodying their ideal of perfection, and in doing so, have created a crippled race. You've got this life and while you've got it, you'd better kiss like you only have one moment, try to hold someone's hand like you will never get another chance to, look into people's eyes like they're the last you'll ever see, watch someone sleeping like there's no time left, jump if you feel like jumping, run if you feel like running, play music in your head when there is none, and eat cake like it's the only one left in the world!

There are two stories going on simultaneously in this book. One is of Shweta and the other one is of Ishita. One is trying to run away from her past and the other one has no clue about her past. One has her ex following her everytime and trying to disturb her present while the other one gets instantly connected on meeting a guy. These two powerful female characters were the highlight of the entire story. But to know whether these two female leads were connected or not, you will have to read the story.
Though the plot was good, I felt that the story was unnecessarily stretched. Some twists and turns seemed illogical to me and the story could have ended in lesser pages. Though I have always enjoyed reading sci-fi stories, this one did not impress me much. The title was not very impressive and seemed average to me. The cover was disappointing though. Okay, there were two stories but the connection on the cover could have been shown in a better way.
