Plot/ Story Line:
How safe are you inside your home?
Myra is a young, independent, single working woman living in Gurgaon. She throws a party to celebrate her success. After a party in her home, she wakes up the following morning and discovers that she has been raped. But she was at home, surrounded by her friends.
Who could have done this to her? Was it one of her friends or a stranger?
Women…all of us… we are different but fight the same battle. Is one quote from the book that s going to stay with me for long.
The life on social media is open to all, how much peek you want to give the strangers into your life is entirely your own call. The book sometimes left me thinking and scared about how much Social media can be dangerously misused and how much dependence on smart gadgets makes us vulnerable.
Its kind on eye opener of the internet generation.
What worked for me?
The realistic storyline. It can happen with anyone in today’s time.
Clear and brutal presentation of what can go wrong by living on the Social Media Space and the biases in society.
What could have been better?
The prejudice that society has is for all or rather every women, for what one does or does not do. That part for Dipti could have been elaborated more. Myra and deepti both could have given equal space in the book.
This book qualifies for a classic thriller for me.
Since many reviews I was unable to give 5 Starts to any book; however this one is beyond that.
