MY REVIEW :
‘2 Day Down’ By Dr. Nikita Lalwani is a great attempt taken by the author to show case the conditions of the women. The title is perfect for the book and the sub title is thoughtful. The cover looks a bit complicated but is designed beautifully. The blurb of the book will make many things clear in your mind. The best part what I felt is that the author chose to write on those topics on which the world hesitate to talk about. All the five stories convey a powerful message to the society. The five more serious issues are talked about in the form of stories. I cannot call any one as my favourite as each story has its own value. The writing style of the author is amazing and the narrative technique is brilliant. The language of the book is lucid. Overall, it is a great read.
RATING : 5/5
