Review: I am not very fond of ghost stories, but Abhirup is one such writer whose writing skills have interest me as a reader. HE had improved every time which had impressed me. His stories look to me so real that I get connected with the characters and get involved with the stories so much. The title of his third book is incredibly unique and different. The cover of the book attracts you to purchase the book and read it. The narration was very crisp that I got involved with Jamisha so much that it scared me a lot when the incidents were happening with her.
Till now I fear Darjeeling and imagination of the incidents making me scary and chilling my spine. Each character in the story was well characterized and explained by the author. The blurb of the book itself is very captivating and catching the eyes of the reader to read the whole story and I was literally hooked to the book. II was so connected with the couple that each incident of the story happening in the book appeared to me real and I was so scared of it. A well-scripted story that should be made as a short film for Netflix lovers. The ghost in someone’s body was impressive and Scary at the same time. Beautiful Darjeeling’s tea estate was nicely described. I would love to read more stories from the Author. Keep writing and all the best. And for all the readers do read this book. Happy reading!
