The ending left a lump in my throat and sone unanswered questions, which is why I rated it 4 out of 5.
Thank you Bloomsbury India for sending me a review copy of this book.
Things I liked about this book:
• For the past few years, I have read almost nothing by any Indian author. I have always had a prejudice against them (you can't blame me, because the prime examples of Indian authors seem to be Chetan Bhagat and Durjoy Dutta, and I have tried readingtheir books. Enough said) . But recently I came across a few other books which totally changed my perspective. Antara Ganguli's Tanya Tania is one such example.
• Tanya Talati and Tania Ghosh, both were extremely well-constructed and realistic characters.
• The concept of a book through letters is something I loved. The only other time I have come across this concept was Cecelia Ahern's Love Rosie, I had loved it then, I love it now.
• Tanya Tania also taught me some parts of the history of our country, about the last decade of the 20th century.
Things I didn't like about this book:
• The ending was sort of anticlimactic. It just wasn't enough, because the whole book was built towards the ending, but it just fell flat there.
• I couldn't relate to either Tanya or Tania. They were supposed to be normal teenagers I am guessing? But I couldn't relate.
Even though the story falls slightly flat, the writing style and the small and big lessons you learn from this book cannot be ignored. If you ask me whether you should read it, I'd say yes, definitely.
