Book Review: Pentacles

The title of the book ‘Pentacles’ is interesting and very innovative.
|| Review by : Swapna Peri

Plot

Pentacles book by Sabarna Roy, as the title suggests, is a perfect amalgamation of one long story and four poems each of which talks about a person’s life. In this book, the long story named ‘New Life’ is written very eloquently about the obstacles faced by a woman who goes against the societal format of married life which in turn gives her son some incorrigible life situations and irreparable wounds.

The story also points out the pathetic customs and taboos that prevail in Indian society which further kills one’s confidence to face the world. In a similar fashion, the four poems in the book are an aggregated example of a free writing style with lots of elements of literary conduct and rich vocabulary. Each poem is a classic of its own that illustrates life in a poetic shell.

What I like

The interlacing of the scenes and the narration is done in an excellent way.
The way the author has presented about life and various emotions will move the readers.

Characters

Every character in the story is plotted very well with interesting narration and characterizations. Every poem is also written with utmost meaning.

Narration

The narration of the story and poems is engaging and interesting.

Language & Grammar

Flawless language and good grammar are found in the book.

My Final Verdict
An interesting book.
