Book Review: Punk Sunk Love by Dhirendra Tiwari

Author: Dhirendra Tiwari
Publisher: Srishti Publishers
Rating: 3.5/5

“Punk Sunk Love” revolves around Shammi, a realist and objective person, and Sona, a rare and wonderful woman, who drives Shammi crazy. But the surprise is not yet over, for there is another angle in this plot- Roy and Monica, who are parallel to Shammi and Sona and these four take the story further.

This story is definitely not a teenage love tale. Instead, it has a lot more to it. What happens when all possible doors close and you are left between the devil and the deep blue sea? The period between choosing and finally reaching a verdict is the toughest. The characters of Roy, Shammi, Sona and Monica have been given due weightage and their character leads to contemplation.

The title of the book is appealing, but the cover could have been better. The blurb is apt. The readers are forced to turn the pages of the book to explore the profound emotion and expression. The font size, style, indentation, header-footer are all fine.

The story is fast paced and interesting. The initial few pages are stretched a bit, probably because of the lengthy descriptions. But gradually the readers can keep up with the flow of the story. Today, where everyone is looking for something exciting and thrilling to read, this plot might just end up being the cake not worth the candle.

But the preciseness and conciseness of the chapters do the trick. The climax is compelling. I would like to compliment the author’s ability to think beyond the horizon and come up with a different plot altogether.

Best wishes to the author!
