My View:

To be frank I was desperate to read this book when I have seen in goodreads, so I applied when a mail came from writersmelon to write a review on this book, I applied on the spot without thinking further, although it is a good book just like a Bollywood masala movie.

The starting was very excellent but the author missed the grip and it becomes too slow, although the storyline is totally new from the monotonous love stories, in one word it’s a well crafted story. Also the writing style and the language of the author is good, especially when it come to end any chapter; he creates a burning desire to turn for the next chapter. Author has a great command on the language and having a good writing skill.

What would you do if there is blackout, not only in your region but to the entire world, how will you cope this situation if there is terror strike, a book is a good suggestion by the author if this type of situation arise in near future. I don’t want to spoil the entire story but if you have read the blurb you can guess the story.
Only one drawback that is, book could have been edited and the length should be not more than 275-290 pages.

“I received a free copy from Writersmelon in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.”

Blurb:

AT 03:02 ON A SUNDAY MORNING, THE WORLD AS WE KENW IT CAME TO AN END.

Mumbai suddenly went black – no electricity, no phones, no internet and no working cars. It was as if someone had turned off the master switch of our civilization, turning us back hundreds of years overnight. We learned that it was not just Mumbai, but much of the world that has been impacted.

We also learned that it was no accident. A deadly enemy was behind it. An enemy that was now in our midst, seeking to conquer us and destroy our way of life. This is how our war for freedom began. A war that was to be waged not on the borders or by the Army, but in our homes and streets, with us as the soldiers.

THIS IS OUR STORY.
