ABOUT THE BOOK

What if they all, at some point, tried to entice you but you feel like committing suicide because of loneliness? What do you call it when you made no mistake but still, you feel guilty as sin?

At times, he avoided the love that knocked at his door and when he actually needed it, the same love kicked him. He betrayed, He got betrayed, He rejected, He got rejected.
From being shot in the back by Prachi’s father to getting intimate with Vineeta under the influence of alcohol, his life was as spicy as those masala Bollywood movies.
He was getting used to his life, until one night, he decides to jump off a building and end everything.

     MY TAKE ON :

                         AUTHOR

‘The Justified Sin’-  being the first work of Harpreet Makkar, I expected the book to have several mistakes and other amateurish stuff, one could find in a new author’s first work, but as a debutant , he has done quite a nice job. Having good narration skills in him, author succeeds in keeping me and may be all readers, intrigued till the end.

           BOOK TITLE AND COVER

Title of the book is catchy yet leaves a wrong impression on a reader’s mind about the book, being a crime thriller.
Also, the cover of the book is creative but nowhere matches with the story line.

                        LANGUAGE

Language is simple yet attracts reader’s attention and is easily understandable.

                      NARRATION

In literary world, for a good beginning, few traits are a ‘must to have’ for all the new authors.
One of them is narrative skills , which author has in him. This is the reason, why I kept turning pages after pages and finished the book in one go.
The plot revolves around the life of Jay and three ladies in his life- childhood friend : Saloni , his best-friend’s girlfriend : Prachi , and his doctor-cum-girlfriend : Vineeta. When two of them were sure about their attraction and feelings towards him, Jay was not sure and the girl Jay was sure about, didn’t appear to be serious with him.
Although author has brilliantly penned down the emotions of protagonist, I came across many situations, where a proper end to certain incidents haven’t been given and yet the same event has been brought up later, which is actually a major turn off.

                             LIKES 

1. The title is intriguing.

2. Attractive Cover design.

3. The portraiture of Jay and his father’s relationship.

                        DISLIKES

1. Occurrence of SMS language in between conversations.

2. Title doesn’t go well with the story.

3. Book’s ending could’ve been improved much better.

RATE :
3/5

Above all, author’s narrative skills have done an excellent job throughout the whole story and hence making it an intriguing book.
