Book Review: Dove’s Lament by Kirthi Jayakumar

People living in more safer places take peace for granted.

There are some books that make you pause and think. That can be attributed to the themes pursued in this book as well as the writing style.

Kirthi’s writing is layered, the language evocative, the emotions raw and painful.

Such level of writing can only be a result of caring deeply about something you truly believe in.

The writing is like tasting something good; you savour it; and the taste lingers; certain phrases and sentences stay with you; you re-read some of them.

All-in-all this is a very satisfying read that makes you introspect.
