My views on this Book:
Every new Book brings a new fictional journey which Author has created with his imagination. Whenever I pick a book, there is always a kind of excitement which always pushes me to turn through its pages. When I got the review copy of ‘The Ribbon Trap” delivered at home, I was stuck up with my pre-exam revisions. I’m very passionate about reading books apart from my textbooksJ, so I managed to give my 5hours to complete this book.
The Ribbon Trap by Shine Syamaladevi is proved to be a story which will glue your eyes to its pages. In the first line of Back-cover Synopsis the line “How can one Reclaim Life?” this is what that makes me to read it with an exciting mood. The prologue of this book ignites my curiosity about its story, as these 3 pages were full of thrill. When I went through its first few chapters few things became clear to me. I didn’t felt myself connected with its characters. Sometimes the story looks grip-less as the author has defined few scenes too longer which gave me a boring sensation.
The plot and storyline is good but not good enough as it supposed in beginning. In the first half of this book, there are only a few chapters which keep my interest to it. The second-half of the story is far better than the first one. Every chapter brings a new reason to carry on reading it. Ending was good, but not the satisfying one. I am happy that I read something different and unique after completing it. Author is a great story teller in no doubt, but the story that he has created in “The Ribbon Trap” is less than my expectations.
In the matters of looks and quality, this book proved itself. The cover quality and texture is beautiful. The cover looks catchy which will definitely attract readers. This leaves a very good impression about it. I am glad that I got the chance to review this book. I would like to thank the Author for trusting in me and giving a review copy of this book in exchange of a honest review.
