Uncertainty is the word that defines life in one word. And who knows that better than Priya. Yes, Priya – the young girl from one of the metropolitan cities of India with a soul full of dreams and lots of promise.
Life was so beautiful when Priya managed to get into the college which she dreamt of getting into since her childhood days. Things looked so good. She used to be a topper in her schooldays and she aimed to do the same even in her college. But life started to take a turn with the passage of time as she came across different sorts of people in her college.
Priya came across people who have given her the taste of all aspects of the human life. And the narrator proved her mettle in giving an array of characters which any person comes across in the real life. This gives the readers an opportunity to connect with the protagonist of the novel which is one of the prime reasons that will keep the readers glued to the paperback.
Yet another aspect of modern India that this book explores is the student politics. The history of India boasts of some memorable student revolutions. But in recent times a lot of things are happening in the colleges and universities in the name of student politics which are subject to a lot of scrutinies. Let’s keep that aside and focus on the great work that the author has done in bringing up such a relevant topic in her novel. Kudos to her for showing the courage of portraying the actual scenes behind the screens in the renowned educational institutions.
Now coming to technical aspects of the novel it can be remarked that Poulomi Sengupta has done a great keeping in mind the fact that this is her debut novel. The narrative is nicely paced and not for even once the reader can feel that the storyline is getting dragged. That’s quite an achievement for someone who is trying to establish a strong foothold in this competitive world.
It can be concluded that ‘The Last Bloom’ by Poulomi Sengupta is somewhat a must read for the young generations who are the future of the modern India. Not only that, even folks belonging to any age group should at least once go through this paperback. You may or may not like it. Well that’s up to the individual who is going through the novel. But none can deny the fact that the author has done a great job in producing the real life experiences in such a gripping plot.
It’s up to you whether you want to get a copy of the 375-page paperback or not. But it is advisable that you should not miss out on an opportunity to go through such a paper pulp fiction which is so different from all those are available in the market. So don’t miss out. You will have only yourself to blame if the shelves run out of stocks shortly.
