The title of the book ‘ Corridors of time ‘ is nostalgic and captivating.Book Cover :
The book cover is a digital image of a man walking through a door. It could have been a better one.
The book is the story of an aimless young guy, Rohan whose father is an ex-army man. Being served in the army, the dedication, discipline and principled lifestyle made him a strict father who is more of a teacher than a friend to Rohan. Such attitude towards children sometimes creates unwanted disturbances in daily life.
Though Rohan is a great sports performer, he is a dull student and is always being pinpointed being a failure in his academics. His performance becomes worse when he joins the college. There comes a point where he meets a woman in the college, loves her very much even after knowing she is married. The friendship goes down a toll and they part as good friends. Years after, he starts working and meet a girl who likes him very much but for some reasons, her parents refuse the relationship, but Rohan and she move further in spite of all odds faced.
As the story progresses, many tiny tales in the main plot can be found embedded. Each story has its own importance. The mood of the complete book is set in almost two decades ago and a reader can easily relate it to the props and sequences narrated in the book. At few places, matured elements in relationships are also explained but in a subtle and decent manner that is common in everyone’s life but which are less discussed.
What I liked:
1.Relatable even now
2. The mood of the story
3. Narrative style
What I didn’t like:
1. Too many tiny tales that drifted away from the main story
2. The delicate and boring ending of the story
The narration is interesting.
All the characters are plotted well.
Language & Vocabulary:
Simple language is used with some good vocabulary.
My Final Verdict—.
A good one time read.
