There are some books you just HATE to review. 'The Wrong Turn' is one of them, for two reasons. Firstly, you hate doing it, because reviewing it means you've finished reading them, they've ended; and you just don't want them to end. You want them to go on and on. They're so good! Secondly, it's hard to review them. What do you write in praise of a book that ticks all the boxes for being a masterpiece? Where do you look for appropriate adjectives? Alright, I'll give it a try, I have to. 'Love and betrayal in the Time of Netaji', that's what the tagline says. It was enough in itself, to pique my interest. Little did I know that those were just two of the innumerable emotions, I'd encounter in the book. There's drama, action, compassion, loyalty, jealousy, hatred, avarice, greed, pride, and wrath; all skillfully mixed up and presented with the finesse of a french cuisine. Wait, I think I missed something? Oh yes, there's happiness too. Now,we all might have read one or a few books on Indian history at some point. Trust me, this is not one of them. Although, it talks about one of the most important moments in the Indian freedom struggle- the one that British refer to as the greatest battle they had fought in the last 400 years, the twin battle of Kohima and Imphal- the facts are blended well with fiction, making it an even more interesting and gripping read. WHAT I LIKED: The plot is researched and well-knit. The story flows at a quick and steady pace; no dull moment there. The characters are relatable and likeable. The locales are well-sketched and intriguing. The writer duo has managed to play quite expertly with the emotional roller-coaster of the reader, hitting them at regular intervals with a twist here and an unexpected turn there. WHAT I DIDN'T: I'm not sure, if my complaint fits in here or not; because this one has nothing to do with the writing, editing, or the proofreading. This has to do with the formatting, which the publisher should have taken care of. I'm reading a long paragraph about Deb's life and suddenly the next one starts talking about Nishonko, without any indication that one part has ended and another is about to start. It wouldn't have been too difficult to put an ellipsis or some other symbol to indicate it. Apart from that, 'The Wrong Turn' is an excellent book that has all the making of a bestselling masterpiece, one that would stay in the minds of the readers for a long time. I strongly recommend this book to.... well, everyone who loves to read a well-written book. My congratulations to the authors, Sanjay Chopra and Namita Roy Ghose! I give this book, a full five out of five stars.
