Brajesh's Review : One Hundred Days. Her Quest, My Cure
"One Hundred Days. Her Quest, My Cure" by Shweta Modgil is a novel of self-discovery. A story of believing in oneself. A story of pursuing ones dream against societal pressures and disapproval.
The story is simple and the cast is relatable, The narrative is where the book begins to fall apart. Simplicity is both the strength and weakness of this book. This is Shweta’s first book and I am sure the author will only grow further in strength from here.
Set against the modern urban madness, the protagonist finds the inspirations during her various escapes from the cityscape. Either on a trip to the hills or in a conversation with a brother settled US.
For me the resolution of conflict was quite predictable but the situations were constructed in a sweet and simple manner.
Rating : 2.5 / 5
