Book Review: A Hundred Little Flames by Preeti Shenoy
Firstly talking about the book cover and the title. Both are pretty different from the ones we have witnessed in Preeti Shenoy’s previous books. And, it is a good kind of change. The cover will give you a nostalgia. It resembles an old-school painting of a typical grandfather and a grandson sitting alongside the ‘little flame’ of an oil lamp.
Coming to the story, A Hundred Little Flames is set in a diminutive village of Kerala away from the hustle of cities and complexities of life.
Ayan is a 26-year-old adult boy who is sent by his father Jairaj to live with his Grandfather Gopal Shanker in this village. Ayan’s father is quite strict and has his own plans while Ayan is completely devasted to be in place that doesn’t even have internet connectivity.
With Ayan having most of his life ahead of him and his grandfather having most of his life in the past, A Hundred Little Flames will take you on a journey back, taking a step forward.
As this unusual stay spans over few months, Ayan has to accept the hard realities and the blindness of greed. With the progress in the plot, Gopal Shanker and Ayan, both learn how life can unfold in completely unanticipated ways.
This is a pre-release review of A Hundred Little Flames by Preeti Shenoy and will be updated after the release of the book i.e. 07 November 2017.
