Book Review: Endurer by Kapil Raj


Life was a fun fed roller coaster: New found love, drugs, cat-fights, patch ups, crushes, night hangouts, and unplanned trips. Like any girl, not in the wildest dream, Palak could imagine that after attending a Rave Party, she will wake up to the horror of finding herself raped.

In traumatic conditions and struggle between sanity and hallucinations, she is compelled by the circumstances to leave her world. Already fighting a war within, her stances take a toll witnessing horrifying tales of women and girls. Little did she know that this catastrophe was not enough for one lifetime, and a storm – was just cooling its heels.

Will she be able to carve her path while facing the rapists, her tyrant father, appearances of her passed away mother? Should Palak let her life to be decided by people, society, and taboos? Would justice return her life or revenge lend her peace?

A heart-rending story of a girl, whose beliefs and honor has been battered, stands up to make choices, rediscovering the meaning of life.

The cover is simply beautiful to see.

The title may seem a bit disturbing, but this story required a strong title. This book is unique in itself.

The blurb talks about what happened with Palak, and how her life changed completely.

The story talks about the Protagonist Palak, and her fun-filled life, new love, night-outs, drugs etc. But all this changed after she attended a rave party. Read this novel to find out what happens next.

The story was gripping and engaging. I was so involved in the story, that I ended up reading it in a single sitting.

The vocabulary and the narration used in book is easy and simple enough for a layman to understand.

The characterization is really good. All the characters are very well written by the author, especially Palak and Rohin’s character. They were quite relatable.

The twists were amusing in the story line, the ending was totally unpredictable.

Hats off to Author for picking up such a Strong Topic to write about.

Looking forward to read more from the author in future.
