The story telling is brilliant, each page you read will swirl all your emotions. It is haunting. . A very intriguing story. Loved the way the writer has woven reality with fiction to tell a powerful story in a very simple manner. Must read!
I loved the 'who is a criminal and who is a saint' line on the back of the book. A moving story which could change your life. This is a work of fiction which is beautifully woven using many threads of both harsh and loving reality. The way it uses the innocence of children and their journey over 20 years to convey the message is beautiful. This book tells the importance of the friendship and if friendship remains above anything there will bw no war.
the basic idea you can take it from here
"Inspired by true events, this riveting narrative traces the lives of Safeena Malik, Deewan Bhat and Bilal Ahanagar, three childhood friends who grow up in an atmosphere of peace and amity in Srinagar, Kashmir, until the night of 20 January 1990 changes it all.
While Deewan is forced to flee from his home, Safeena’s mother becomes ‘collateral damage’ and Bilal has to embrace a wretched life of poverty and fear. The place they called paradise becomes a battleground and their friendship struggles when fate forces them to choose sides against their will.
Twenty years later destiny brings them to a crossroads again, when they no longer know what is right and what is wrong. While both compassion and injustice have the power to transform lives, will the three friends now choose to become sinful criminals or pacifist saints?The Tree with a Thousand Apples is a universal story of cultures, belongingness, revenge and atonement. The stylized layered format, fast-paced narration and suspenseful storytelling makes for a powerful, gripping read."
