Cover of the book is enough for you to sense that the book is something you would love to read and the same happened with me. I was truly excited to read about the ‘Unusual Revenge on her Rapist’ as written on the cover and with that mindset I started reading the book.
The Writing Style of Gaurav Sharma is gripping for sure. I was completely absorbed in the story while reading the book. I could sense each and every emotion author wanted to convey. Every character looks real and leaves a strong impact on the reader’s mind. Momentum of the story is apt till the court sessions. It’s a pretty quick and interesting read. I was eagerly waiting for Akriti’s decision on her rapist but I must say that I was a bit disappointed to read that part because I have seen it already in some bollywood movie.
Soon starts the finale of the book and now I wanted to know where the story will lead at the end. Surprisingly, I was impressed with the ending. Though it’s not a ‘Happy Ending’ but an Apt ending. I was not sure that I would have anticipated this type of ending. The transformation of the character of Raman deserves a read and the ‘end’ decision of Akriti makes the title of the story more convincing that the ‘Rapescars never heals.’
Overall I would say that the book is pretty interesting and deserves to be read.
