I normally love action packed and fast reads. This one was a really, really, really predictable slow paced story, anti-climatic at times but I didn't mind it at all because the narration was very creative; very descriptive. A few punctuation errors though but that's understandable. Editing is costly and editors are human too.
Also, not only in India that widows shave their heads ;)... In many non-Muslim tribes in Africa, it's a custom for mourning.
The letters to the dead felt like info dump at times and strained me but I understand it's also a grieving process and very therapeutic so I guess it's alright.
Other things I loved about this story are the flowers mentions, drawings, and the creative way of no actual chapter numbering. I liked it.
My Rating : 3/5
