the first few chapters word difficult to read but after some initial chapters it's very easy to understand the story and it progress at a good pace.
I personally loved the book and found that the views of a child being changed after being or watching these situations.
Some harsh truth about reality makes us feel a bit uneasy but it's the truth.
The way the characters grew up was amazing.
Loved the book!

The book took me on a great journey
The quotes were amazing , the way of describing the minutest details, like if you give a thought about the things that have been written and imagine it you will see them in front of you.
Overall a great book.
Don't read it with a sense that why did it happen but enjoy the journey toru takes on and what all changes happen due to the interaction with various characters.
