    find this review others on my blog At the start of Majumdar s standout debut novel, Jivan, a young Muslim woman, makes a Facebook post that takes a jab at the government s handling of a train bombing in Bengal Someone hastens to whisper of it, and Jivan lands in a prison cell, charged with the attack before night finishes falling Everyone, suddenly, had known her, everyone had heard her speak ill of her country, everyone had seen her i

    This book gutted me As I was reading, I could see it going in that direction but that didn t stop the feeling that overcame me as I finished.Let me first say that this book was written by a friend of mine but it would have been something I d have on my to read list regardless The story brings together several characters whose lives intersect after one big event Majumdar writes from each of their perspectives and I thought she did such a great job of giv

    So, I started this book with great excitement After all, it is on all lists, and one of the major releases of 2020 It started off slow I wasn t invested in the characters or the plot This is just me being honest about what I felt while reading it Till, I reached about 100 pages and that s when the book started working for me That is exactly when I think I became invested and hurt and felt joy with the characters The book speaks to me as an Indian, of what
