Book Review: Aarohi- The Missing Girl

The moment I came across this book, I was tempted to read it. The reason behind it is very simple. Though the spelling is different, coincidently it has my name. Strangely, the genre of the book was not specified on Amazon but the blurb gives an indication that it is a suspense story.

The story revolves the narrator thinking about his past about an incident that shook the lives of everyone connected. A nine-year-old girl Aarohi who was the only child of her parents went missing abruptly. She was kidnapped but the reason behind the kidnapping was not ransom. Investigations for the case reveal a serious issue that is just like cancer for the society. And that needs to stop!

The cover is okay but the girl could have been highlighted more in the cover to make it look more relevant.

The title is apt for the story.

The concept is a good one; thriller mixed with a serious trouble of the society has been well in the story in an attempt to make it an amazing story. It could have been planned and presented in a better manner though.

However, the narration is not up to the mark. This could have been a page turner but the narration was not in a proper order. Some things have been described too much like the look of the inspector while some elements seemed to be rushing towards the conclusion. Grammatical errors added much to my disappointment and broke my flow many times while reading.

The ones who love reading suspense and thriller can give this book a try only if grammatical errors do not bother you much.
