Book Review

Recently another constructive review is out about my book The Second Choice, on museindia.com as stated in their Jan-Feb issue.

I am posting some excerpts from the review post for the convenience of my readers -

"There are some books that one reads, finishes reading and remembers in snippets. Then, some books make one laugh and cry; and are then tucked safely in a forgotten corner of their bookshelf. Few books; however, live on to you; right from the time one reads the first page; and make one pick them from time to time from corners of the bookshelf. This is what Lakshmi Menon’s first English novel in offering does; its poignancy wants you to take pleasure in it at regular intervals."

Another part -

"The complexities of Indu’s refusal to accept her ‘new mother’ and the depression of Anu; Pavithra's daughter are very well expressed in the middle of the novel. The book starts on a promising note, with a strong image of Anu resting in Pavithra’s lap and her reminiscence of her husband Anand in flashes. One feels appalled at her condition when instances of her late husband are portrayed."

If you're interested to read more please go here.

The book is available on several places, as print book as well as ebook.
