Kudos to Monica Mujumdar Dixit for writing such a novel with contemporary background.
- Characters are lively and start being you
- Situations are quite realistic and retain suspense
- Amolika is developed finely
- Sequences maintained nicely
- Introduction of side characters in suitable with the qualities
- Last chapters with Political/criminal background are nicely intensified, without being too elaborate
- Raehan needs a bit polishing
- Amolika’s UK stay, prior to assignment, could have been detailed to express her personality.
- Last chapters become predictable
- Being contemporary, use of technology like Mobiles/conversations, TV etc should have been more
- Avoid some repetitions when once narrates what happened in previous pages. This should be handled wisely
It’s well narrated story Mona. Congratulations and looking forward to next!!
The story is like a whiff of fresh air in today's atmosphere of distrust and fear.
For the debut novel of the author, its a commendable and wonderful effort.
Wishing Monica Mujumdar Dixit a very bright writing future.
Review by Anuradha Mujumdar
Just finished reading A Quest for Spring. It is a wonderful novel. When I read it I felt as if I was watching a movie. The scenes are graphically described. Language is classic. Each character is very well brought out. Amolika, the protagonist, emerges the strongest character. There are a number of situations depicting conflict in ideas, perceptions, situations, personalities, etc. The conflict between Amolika’s love for Raehan with social structure and her upbringing; and between herself and Vikram, are very succinctly brought out. The author has very well captured the situation, as it prevailed in the Valley at the end of the last millennium. The emotions like Amolika’s pain, her inability to sort her emotions, Raehan’s love and confusion, Vikram’s anger, have been very well sketched. The storytelling style is just superb.
The storyline is very absorbing and captivating. The narrative travels seamlessly from the meeting of Amolika and Raehan, Amolika and Vikram climaxing to Amolika getting injured while saving Raehan and the final resolution in happy ending.
The language of the author is simple, easy to understand and very effective. Once I started reading I could not keep it away and finished it. The novel is very crisp. The novel also raises tangentially certain social and political issues. It has all the elements that go in making of a good novel. Highly recommended for reading.
There are few typographical errors. But barring those, it is an extremely readable novel. It took me back to my college days. The younger generation can perhaps identify better with the story. I now look forward to her next novel.
Raehan is a charming boy belongs to the political family background a good guitarist, an introvert boy but get mingled with Amolika and started to like her.
Life is not that easy, Amolika is on a mission to spy on Raehan this is 1997 roll on.
2014 scenario, Amolika a jouralist who was sent to India to Cover elections And CM is Raehan.
The Story is written very neatly, plot is explained very well, it’s a love story basically that brewed during colleges, but both Amolika and Reahan get separated because of some reasons. Raehan get married to Nazzia and have Twins where as Amolika get marrieds to Vikran and was divorced and so Raehan was. I love all the characters because the story has a possitivity. Amman and Adile, best examples of children who take their parent’s separation as a positive one and help their parents. Milli a very good friend.
Title very attractive and cover with spring season picture and greenish touch and yellow flowers (yellow favorite color of Amolika) is a nice combination apt for the title. Blurb definitely gives you an urge to read the insights. Language and narration are lucid I must say after reading this book, your vocabulary will definitely get stronger. And indeed a story id very interesting, made me glued page to page.
I have just given the glimpse of the story, to know all the twists and turns, planning and plotting and finally, how the reunion of these love birds, which is very interesting. order your copy now!!!!
I’d like to congratulate Monica for her scintillating debut performance.
