#QOTD – Which book have you read based on bookstagram recommendations? And did you like it?
Ghachar Ghochar by Vivek Shanbhag is one of the shortest book I have read this year, but it packs such a punch. The very title of the book gives the feeling of being in a tangled mess. My Instagram feed was flooded with this book’s reviews. So finally I gave in and picked it up, and loved it!
With 118 pages Shanbhag managed to touch, explore and conclude that one thing that can mend and bend relationships – money! The story is about a typical Indian middle class family, with less money and more love for each other. We see how a rise in their financial status changes their loving two room home to a vast, spacious house with nothing but emptiness! This was the perfect rags to riches story!
It was a fast-paced novella, which kept me engaged till the last sentence.
