Book Title: Heart Quake
Author: Ishita Deshmukh
The title of the book ‘Heart Quake’ is different and hints to the reader the story about feelings and emotions.
The cover image of the book is an abstract art of a couple swinging holding a single rope with a heart-shaped
image in the background and cracks all over the main background giving a clue about the emotional heartbreaks in the story.
The story is set up during the most disastrous earthquakes India has ever seen, i.e. Earth Quake in Bhuj, in 2001. Three characters of which two are female and one is the male is to be talked about. Sonal, a dutiful nurse in the aftermath of the earthquake’s medical services at the earthquake affected places with an agenda of finding her lot friend Smita and Tejas, Sonal’s ex-beau is the doctor in the same place.
The tryst of long lost emotions, confused state in communicating the present emotions and an unclear understanding of the future between Sonal and Tejas is the crux of the story.
What I like:
1. The storyline that is set up during the chaotic times that people were under
2. The emotional quotient which is well managed
3. The turnaround time during and after the natural calamity
What I didn’t like:
1. Many errors are found while reading including grammatical and vocabulary
2. Poor editing was a speed breaker during the read
All the characters are well plotted with notable importance.
The simple and involving narration stands highlight in the book.
Language & Grammar:
A better editing would have made the book more memorable.
My Final Verdict:
A fine and neat one time read.
