I do wonder whether the twist towards the end was entirely necessary. It definitely helped in tying some loose ends. Yet, it took a little allure away from the character that doesn't exist. Overall, a wonderful book from a first-name author. I won't be surprised if it's published as a paperback soon!
On the Open Road is the kind of book today's youngsters would be glad to own. A short read spanning within 200 pages, brimming with hope and inspiration, the book is armed with the capability of igniting sparks of enthusiasm and encouraging the youth to embark on a road not trampled upon yet.
Being from the Corporate realm herself, the author's firsthand experiences regarding the corporate world, and the hardships faced by the youth, specially the women, have come in handy indeed. The harsh reality of the corporate and IT industry, where human beings are being transformed into robots that are programmed to submit projects within tight schedules, is stated explicitly in the book. The truth is so well depicted that you cannot remain awestruck for long. With every page, the author delves deep into the emotions of loss, dejection, disappointment, hopelessness. You will rarely find such books within 200 pages that describe the hardships being faced by the individuals who want to walk their own path. This is why I truly loved the book so much. Moreover, On The Open Road has multiple purposes. It serves not only as a self-help inspirational book, but also as a light read that has volumes to teach you. It's not teaching, actually; rather, it is the values inculcated within an individual in order to be able to stand up straight, holding their heads up high, and living their life their own way. The one thing that I appreciate about the book is the significance of spirituality, hope and farsightedness. Today, the world is neck-deep in materialism and throat-cutting competition, and people are desperate to gain (and not achieve) what they want within a short span of time. The story of On The Open Road encourages it's readers to realise the necessity to explore one's own self via introspection, and the power to plan ahead in order to live a better life in posterity.
On The Open Road, to my surprise, does not lack any noteworthy shortcoming (other than some misprints), which indicates the author's brilliance in the art of storytelling.
I am glad to have come across such a book that has a soul-stirring impact on the reader, and thus encourages them to make their own decisions once in life, so that they are able to handle the consequences and lead their life responsibly.
The book is the story of three people with similar hopes and plans and how they let go of their past and not give up on their dreams, till they reach their goal. The places and things that interest youngsters has been smartly included in the story, like cafes and treks.
The story slightly loses tempo during the second half when the trio keep meeting probable investors, and the proceedings get cliched and boring. However, the pre-climax and climax make up by bringing in an unexpected twist. The substance abuse and youngsters looking at parents as hurdles for their dreams, could have been avoided.
While this is one more coming-of-age story, the twist at the end made the book more interesting for me. The message conveyed by the author is commendable and the last two pages hint, this might be largely inspired from Stuti’s personal life. At less than 200 pages, the story stays true to the theme while inspiring and motivating young men and women to look at entrepreneurship with an open mind. A must read for aspiring entrepreneurs, as the journey can get hard for real and stories like these help keep them going in the face of adversities.

My rating: 4/5
A quick, simple story written in a simple and yet engaging fashion to inspire youth inside out.
The story revolves around three characters- Myra, Kabir, and Sandy. The book is narrated from Myra and Kabir's point of view.
The characters (Myra, Kabir, Sandy) want to break free their routine tiresome work life. And they do so, taking a road trip.
Meeting coincidentally on a road trip they team up and plan to work on a startup.
Throughout the story the mysterious character Ramy takes the limelight to inspire these characters (Myra, Kabir and sandy) To break free their lives and motivating them to take up the dream they have through his travel blog.
What I liked and didn't like about the book:
The story is simple and lacks the twist and turns at peak points. But has an unexpected twist in the end. In spite of all the loose ends the story sticks to the motto of inspiring the reader and I must say author succeed in doing so, the outcome of which, you might end up feeling inspired at the end of the book. Narration and writing style is good. Quotes are written in a most amazing way and these word adds beauty to the story.
Overall the book is amazing, refreshing, and inspiring. A must read.
Writing style: 4/5
Final verdict: 4/5
