  • Description

    Fade into Red, authored by Reshma K. Barshikar, is the story of a twenty-something investment banker named Ayra, who had always wanted to be an art historian.

    Summary of the Book

    Ayra, who dreamed of becoming an art historian, realizes one day that art history could not feasibly upkeep her love for beautiful shoes. But that monsoon day, she is sent to Rome on an eleventh-hour appointment with a celebrated client. The trip should have ideally been a four-day plan, but it ends up becoming a two-week treasure hunt, engaging her in the middle of dubious vintners, wee-hours deals, rolling Tuscan hills, and also millionaire playboy! Read this compelling story of the young lady, the book certainly offers you an unputdownable read.

    Awesome read

    This is a super fun book with bits of Mumbai, Chennai, Italy all thrown in. There's something for the romantic, the comic, the idealist, the mystery junkie and and the travel obsessed in this book.

    It was okey, average story line

    I thought almost all the characters, except Ishaan, were like straight out of some hilarious movie. Ayra herself was likable.

I liked every member of Ayra’s big south Indian family, especially Mangama who moved in and out of the rooms like the elf in the Harry Potter movies. Though one of the lead I didn’t like Ishaan- the quintess...
