Nazaqat by Sasha H. Singhal: a review

Prostitution- Yes prostitution is the main topic that this biography deals with. A book of its kind, this book surely makes it to the bestselling charts of the year.

On the back cover: A prostitute turned entrepreneur who hires a ghost writer to make a biography. A murder that she was accused for and her vision to legalize prostitution completely in India. A parallel conspiracy that threatens her life and vision. A forgotten tale of mermaid, that must be told. Time is ticking and history would be altered. What would be Nazaqat? Will she succeed in her vision or she would end up as a victim?

The first book of the publishing house, the book quality surely promises a great future to the house.
coming to the book- the name, the cover, all of it is so eye catching that it grabs the readers attention from the very first look they have on the book.

the narration, the incidents, the way it is written presents Nazaqat as a real character and so it is. Nazaqat is a mermaid, she is a dream; as portrayed in the book. The 'ode to mermaid' at the end of the book and the parts of it in between chapters gives it a very wonderful essence.

The Shakespearean language used in the poem stay inked in the readers heart forever and the biography surely leaves an after effect on every reader or rather every 'client' that Nazaqat has.
The climax of the story was totally unexpected and it was really good.

though, at one point of time I felt that the climax could've been presented in a much better way. The topic unusual enough has added fuel to the spark of Nazaqat.
