Price: 65 INR/$1.20

My Ratings: 3.5/5


Elements of patriotism combined with suspense and thrill. I haven’t read many books about war and army, hence I was hooked. For those that like stories about bravery, patriotism and war, this would make a nice read.

What I liked about the book:
–> The three main characters had diverse backgrounds which made the story quite interesting.
–> The story tells us about true and real life heroes aka our army men compelling us to reflect on our own ideas of patriotism.
–> The plot and story keep you hooked till the end.

What I did not like about the book:
–> The narrative style lacks consistency and hence gets confusing (I had to read several dialogues twice or thrice to understand)
