Her Resurrection by Soumyadeep Koley - A Book Review

Review
Review Highthlight

"Her resurrection by Soumyadeep Koley is a tight slap in strong words on the dual faced India. "

Cover and Title

The image of tainted woman's face with blood red tears is the cover of the novel. The cover is successfull in depicting the immense pain that our protagonist. Maya undergoes in the story.
The title is equally apt as the second half of the story deals with fighting the society and reclaiming back a normal life after a series of painful events kill Maya emotionally.

My views of the Plot

The plot of the story is a woman's struggle against the patriarchal society to fight and grab away her own position. She is continuously mocked, sexually abused, left helpless and taken advantage of, betrayed and lost her loved ones. The book is oozing of pain and blood and the Author has proved to me, Pen is Mightier than the sword. You will see the naked truth of India, a country where people won't bother even if they see you being sexually abused on a busy road in broad daylight. A country where the darkness of night turns the gentlest of men into starving wolves. Where going back into the gutter is easy, every one will give you a push. However,no one will give a hand to pick you up.

Favourite Quote


My favourite part in the book was Saadia's conversation with Maya. The reflection of a prostitute's mindset is painfully heartbreaking.
"We are the scapegoats of the vagaries of men's desires. When a man is here having sex with us, you know, somewhere in the city,a girl is saved from being raped. We are a bunch of women soldiers of the country, who give up their lives for the cause of the nation."

Rating

5/5 stars, no doubt. Everything is flawless in the book except a couple of typos.
