Shadow In The Mirror by Deepti Menon – Book Review

Shadow In The Mirror

BY: DEEPTI MENON

Synopsis:

It all begins with a death. Nita, a pregnant woman falling from her balcony becomes the string that unravels the plot. Her death casts a shadow over many lives; her heartbroken father, her husband and Vinny, a young journalist, drawn in by the whiff of foul play and murder.

What follows are stories within stories, eras and worlds colliding with each other, leaving behind splintered relationships and mesmerizing slices of lives that appear to be drawn together and driven apart by the whimsical threads of destiny.

As events cast their shadows ahead to link the stories of Vinny, Kavita, Roma, Krish and Nita in an unrelenting knot, a journey starts to uncover the truth. What is the secret that links Nita’s death to the other characters? Will Vinny be able to unravel the mystery of Nita’s death?

From intimate diary entries and letters, to bantering over a meal and sharing memories while spring cleaning, this novel de-familiarizes the ordinary, presenting a kaleidoscope of our own pasts, broken edges and pulsating hearts.

Book Review:

Mystery, thriller and horror are the genres that seldom find place in my bookshelf. However, Shadow in the Mirror had something in its blurb and cover image that my first reaction after looking at the them was. “I want to read this book.” Moreover, books from Readomania have always been my favourite. The book is a pleasant change for me and I do not regret making the decision to read the it.

Shadow in the mirror is a very interesting novel penned by Deepti Menon that grips the reader from the very beginning. The story is highly intriguing that makes the book a real page turner. The subplots and the meandering between eras are quite interesting. The characterisation is done beautifully and the narration is wonderful and has been done in a very beautiful or should I say, poetic language. I loved the storytelling style of the author.

The plot is interesting and has the capability to captivate the reader’s attention.

Overall I liked reading Shadow In The Mirror which kept me hooked till the end.

**** I received a free copy of the book for an honest and unbiased review. ****

About the Author



Deepti Menon has always believed in the power of the pen. Having done her post graduation in English Literature and her B.Ed. in English, she had the option of teaching and writing, and did both with great enjoyment. She started writing at the age of ten, long before she acquired a Diploma in Journalism. She also had the advantage of being an Army kid, and later an Army wife, and loved the idea of travelling around India, meeting new people and acquiring new skills. She firmly believes that much of her personality was honed during those travels.

In 2002, her light hearted book, ‘Arms and the Woman’, depicting life as seen through the eyes of an Army wife, was published by Rupa Publishers, Delhi. This was written mainly to reveal the warmth and camaraderie within the great institution. She is now working on her second book that is a work of fiction, and not- to-be divulged yet!
