Akasa Thamarai - Indira Parthasarathy

One Line Synopsis

When it comes to social norms and the willingness to conform to it, how do you decide on right or wrong?

Thumbs-up

- The diversity of thought amongst the characters.
- A genuine and relatable potrayal of the points of view.
- Beautiful yet simple Tamizh prose.

Thumbs-down

- A few of the plot points were a little contrived and one or two characters a tad illogical in their sketch.

Verdict

This is a book that'll draw the right kind of angst and reactions from you. The sharply etched characters will certainly help you realize where you stand on the issues discussed and give you an introspective glimpse into your own beliefs.
