Review: Finally, I got time to read and review Preeti Singh’s Second novel “Crossroads..It’s About time. After the success of her first novel “Flirting with fate” A crime thriller she came with her second novel with a totally different genere. Crossroads is an emotional saga which will touch the heart of a million readers. The cover and blurb is nice and precise , clearly shows about the journey of a young woman Kavita. Each chapter will take you on the roller coaster ride of a young woman with a new challenge and deep emotions. The character’s name are taken from the real characters of her friends list which make the book realistic and we feel like watching the whole story live in theatre. Even the subtitle of the chapters is taken from the titles of the book of famous authors which makes the book more realistic and full of emotions. Even the mute animals like Twitter, Amber, Ambrina, Sunoji played an active role and their talks really made the book interesting. The animals are always an interesting thing in Preeti Singh’s book. The book never leaves you and it’s high ranging emotions keep an impact in the hearts of readers. I as a reader was so engrossed with the journey of Kavita that I didn’t realize that it’s a book and it will finish soon. It was very well narrated and edited book. I deeply enjoyed reading the book and would suggest everyone to read this book and feel the pain of kavita. Go and Grab your copies…
