Book Review: Men And Dreams- In The Dhauladhar

There are some books that you instantly want to read as soon as you come across them. The reason might be the cover of the book, the title or something else. The same happened to me when I came across this book and I do not know the reason behind it. This sudden urge of reading a book is often risky because you can pick up a wrong book in this and regret it later. However, the adventure and risk are worth trying because you will learn how to choose books for reading. This book was not a bad one and I give it 4 stars out of 5.

The story began with a travel scene and I was into the book at once. I get connected to travel stories faster and enjoy reading them. The story revolves around 3 protagonists Nanda, Rekha and Khusru. The book has a rich diversity; diversity in emotions and diversity in backgrounds. The story is not based on something stagnant. It is a story of Nanda from Kerala who is currently working in the Himalayan region. Thus the story has some traits from both Northern and Southern India that the respective readers will be able to connect. The background scenes and the situations have been described well. The story has murders, mystery, and emotions. Nanda is staying in the Himalayan region, not just for his work but there are some other reasons too. Kusru is a young boy while Rekha is a dancer and doctor. Her two contrasting professions attracted me. The stories of these three people are connected Dhauldhar and a lot is happening there. You will have to read the story to find out.

Aarohy Kapoor, Review

The cover has mountains on it and is apt for the story because it is based in the Himalayan region. However, I did not like the color scheme used in it. The title is good. The plot of the story is good and different. The narration is beautiful especially when it comes to the description of the background scenes.

Pick up this book if you want to read an unconventional story. You will have to be involved in the book to enjoy reading it.

Title- 4 / 5

Cover- 3.5 / 5

Plot- 4 / 5

Narration- 4.5 / 5
