The story is about Rahul, a young man from London who dreams of making films. Film making is his passion and he wished to pursue it from a university in India. Initially, his parents do not approve Rahul’s intention of moving out of London. After numerous attempts of persuasion, they finally agree. Rahul lands up in Mumbai. Will Mumbai treat him good? Does Rahul succeed in following his passion? Who is Radium and how is he connected to Rahul?
The author has crafted this story perfectly well. Every single thing is paid attention to. The story turns a bit predictable towards the end. However, the curiosity about what would happen still exists. The book is a perfect page turner at the beginning. It is narrated in first person narrative and is just perfect. This realistic narration will make you feel like you have been conversing with the protagonist or like you have been watching a movie.
The characters aren’t many. It is Rahul’s parents, his friends and his love interest. I personally loved Rahul. The way he thinks and cares about his parents, his dedication towards his passion, the manner in which he faces the adversities…all are worth praising.
One Enduring Lesson is an all-in-one combo. It teaches you how to face adversities of life. It teaches you to follow your passion. Hard work, dedication and unshakeable faith in God certainly moves mountains. It proves that every cloud has a silver lining.
My overall rating for ‘One Enduring Lesson’ is 4/5 stars.
The plot is very good and fresh and describes the struggles of youngsters in a very effective way. It also incorporates various religious traditions and few norms of Indian society. All this is narrated via the roller coaster journey of Rahul, the protagonist.
The characters of the book are very well etched and developed. They have been created with a great finesse to suit to the mood of the book and story.
The narration is good. The author has touched many aspects of the society and has managed well to intertwine them together.
The language is simple and is easy to comprehend. The title and the cover are very attractive and add value to the book.
Overall, One Enduring Lesson is an intriguing book that is definitely a page turner. I enjoyed reading it and recommend to all who want to read a book with a difference.
