Chiya is born and brought up in a wealthy business-class family. When her mom Rini, a highly ambitious woman, tries to fix her marriage with a millionaire divorcee, quite senior to her in age, she refuses categorically. As a result an ugly argument ensues between them. Chiya’s life turns upside down when Rini reveals an unpleasant secret pertaining to her life during the heat of the conflict. Then she embarks on a mission-the sole aim of her life. What was that secret and the mission thereupon? To find, explore the novel-Song of A Flying Sparrow-a tale of emotions, love, betrayal, ambitions, greed, cynicism and twisted relations.


Our identity is the only thing which defines us and we should be loyal with it. Song of a Flying Sparrow is a well thought title and that explains in one of the very beautiful scene of the book where the protagonist (Chiya) is talking to some kid. Cover is beautifully designed as well. Blurb is short and basically does give you the main theme of the book.

Coming to the story, it starts as predicted from the blurb. Chiya is the girl who is not behind the wealth as her mother but wants to follow her dreams. But as the blurb of the book promises, there are some twists and that keeps you hooked to the book.

Writing style of the author is good. Pace of the book is also satisfying (except the climax). The best thing about the writer’s style is that he deliberately puts some scenes in the book that are not long but portrays very different scenarios from the main story. For example the police station scene. It had nothing to do with the story but a sharp satire on VIP culture prevailing in India.

If we talk about the story, it was average for me before the very end of the book. There was a good surprise waiting for the reader at the climax. Story isn’t bad and nor extraordinary, it is average and demands for one time read.

Song of a flying sparrow is a good read and is having a story that will keep you interested. Surely recommended for a one time read.
