    Description

    The Edge Of Desire is a fast-paced and gripping book describing Shruti Rajan’s life and ordeals, and boldly addresses topics like the flaws in the Indian judicial system, gender crimes, the angst of the victims of rape, and many others.

    Summary Of The Book

    Set in the 1990s, The Edge Of Desire commences with a description of the VIP cell at Tihar jail, where Shruti Rajan was being detained. Shruti, the newly-married wife of Rohit Verma, the Deputy Commissioner of Kishanganj in Bihar, was a journalist who was the victim of a ruthless rape. Her assailant was Salim Yadav, a notorious man with strong political backing.

    Determined to seek justice, she encounters only dismissals and postponement at the hands of the corrupt state government. She joins politics to ensure Salim’s conviction and slowly grows to be a champion for women everywhere. She slowly refocuses on improving the nation’s security for women, and works towards changing the rape laws in the country. Throughout her crusade, she faces many emotional and marital problems, and is eventually deserted by her husband as well. The one person who stands by her is Sharad Malviya, a leading politician who takes her under his wings. He serves as her guide and mentor during her foray into the complex world of politics, and supports her steadfastly.

    A poignant and inspiring read, The Edge Of Desire chronicles Shruti’s troubled and heartbreaking story, and her fight against the outdated rules of the society and the machinations of politics. Published in 2012 by Hachette India, this gripping page-turner serves as a motivation for all women to stand up for themselves.

    Not my taste

    I did not like the book and couldn't read beyond two chapters. It doesn't hold you to the story line.

    Average

    Its good but after a certain point of time it gets on your nerves as the story and the plot seems monotonous. I couldn't complete the book. The first part is interesting but it cannot hold the reader's interest for long. The story is innovative. It deals with the social problems and the dilemma and determination of a woman but it could still have been made a little precise.

    Average Read

    This was the first book i read of Tuhin Sinha, this starts of like any other drama/thriller book. Edge of desire chronicles story of Shruti Ranjan and adversities she faces in the 'pre-dominant' male society. I cast it as average read considering the drama involved and lack of depth in the characters that contribute to the story.

    Well Written

    I liked the way the writer has framed characters especially the examples that he has taken from history to define the character(s) actions and inaction's. Apart from a few errors (in characters and examples, not grammatical or printing error), the book is a wonderful read.

    A good read for fun... who has at least some interest in politics...

    Nice book to read. Yes, it's more like a political documentary and it seems some of it's story is related to an Indian politician. The hardliner approach and patriotism, policies, strong approach to protect country, but still don't want to hurt innocent etc etc..

    In all, a good read just for fun.

    Scalding reality

    How do you avenge a crime that reeks of depravity? Drawing a very close parallel with reality, Tuhin A. Sinha brings out how the protagonist deals with her rape, and fights her way through. Trying to be just, she knows she has to fight her battle alone, as her husband doesn't stay by her side; she gets a mentor eventually, only to deal with a wrenching loss of his death as well. The book ends....but the story doesn't. People have to be brave to right the wrong; the question is: how brave is s...
