*NOTE: This is a paid review however, this does not at all hinder my honest opinions regarding the book. All opinions are solely mine. This is a spoiler-free review.
Ishana is a girl made of steel and straws, I believe.
Ishana Awasthi has passions and desires that no one except her, seems to understand. All the people around her including her parents do not support the idea of her becoming a tattooist and consider it even more foolish of her to want to excel in it.
From a not very rich background, Ishana finds it hard each day to run after what she truly desires. Her family owes enough to people around her and considers paying the debts more valuable than saving Ishana from humiliation and harshness.
Having her way, even if the way seems too crooked, Ishana lands up at her dream job at a tattoo studio where she gets to ink all her desires. If this was all she wanted, why isn’t she blessed with some mental peace? Why can’t her family accept her desires however bizarre they seem? You need to read the book to know it all!
On a casual day, Ishana receives a customer, a seemingly proud one on that. Looking way too busy, he makes Ishana wait for a long while. After the wait is over, Ishana finds it irritating to know that the customer only wants a dot to be tattooed on his chest. Just a dot? Why? Whatever he may seem like, Vaishakh Arora had a ride-like life story of his own. But, would Ishana’s and Vaishakh’s life-roads ever meet again? Do they take their own different paths or do they meet again even if it’s just for once?
Who knew that one day would change her life forever?
Let’s talk about all the things I love about this book! Firstly, I like the unique storyline of this book which presents to us the life of an aspiring tattoo artist whose work is not respected enough by people around her. I love the fact that the author has made use of good vocabulary which has enhanced the meanings all the more. I like the whole journey; how the obstacles form for our protagonist and how she overcomes them is indeed worded in an appreciable manner. So kudos to the author for that!
Now, for the things I am not very fond of. At certain points, the story did seem a bit off-track when the turn of events became unrealistic. I could also find a few typos but, they can only come to be noticed when you read too closely.
All in all, I would recommend this book to anybody who is looking for a short read and is fond of romance novels. It is also recommended to all those who like to see their protagonist rise from the ashes like a Phoenix (book reference alert!).
