After reading the latest Mehrunisa Series by Manreet Sodhi Someshwar, I decided to buy her earlier work. The reason I picked The Long Walk Home is not only because of author's imagination and a perfect literary skill but also to present the story so vividly. This art is very rare to find. I am a huge fan of Suspense/Mysteries/Thrillers/horror genre which led me to buy the latest two books of the Mehrunisa series viz. The Taj Conspiracy and The Hunt For The Kohinoor.
The Long Walk Home is a story of Baksh who is seventy one year old. An old man who is a heart patient who reminisces about his life. The roles played by his children especially the character of Anant and Noor I liked very much. An air of suspense is also created by author in the book which makes the book a page turner. The events which take place will surely make you keep reading the book till the end.
Coming to the author, her writing style and putting the story in words is a wonderful art gifted to her. As said by Khushwant Singh as well for Manreet Sodhi Someshwar that she is a 'Gifted writer of great promise.' I agree with him. If you read this book, I am sure that you are going to like it.
I would rate this book as 4/5 because of well defined plot and an intriguing story.
