The novel is short and sweet. As it is written by an Indian author, and as I am an Indian, the language is more comprehensible or easily understandable.
But if we go by content wise, it does not contain any surprise for me. I already expected that writer is going to tell about earthquake (natural calamity) and riots (man-made calamity), because these two events were one of the few events due to which Gujarat came into news and it effected human life in large scale.
The most indigestible part of novel is, when those 3 friends win over angry mob of more than 40 persons.
At last, it is good novel that let you pass the time without any headache or remorse.
