Kakoli G weaves yet another wonderful story in her book Devi.
The book follows the story of the affluent few staying in the same building. The book shows us how “the upper middle class lifestyle” comes with vices that are often hidden.
The book hosts multiple characters and every character has been sketched well. These characters are relatable and somewhere you will find reflections of yourself in their mannerisms. The book plays around the themes of greed, lust and satisfaction. It taps the human emotions well. You can look at this book as a short stories book because it is episodic. But every story is interlinked and it culminates on a thoughtful note.
To me this one wasn’t as impactful as The Ambrosial Hour but it was a quick read and a decent work of fiction at that. Like the previous book, this doesn’t have remarkable quotable quotes.
