    Jaal: A book worth a thousand hours of reading!

    Being an average reader, i know and have experienced the feeling of total lack of interest when one looks at a large novel. But with "Jaal" i was gladly mistaken from the very first few chapters when i reached that state of mind where the novel became a phenomenon. I'd say you could read on for hours and never get bored. But my personal feelings aside, here's what i have to say about the nitty-gritties of the novel.

    1) ITS COMPACT:--Sabgeeta Bahadur is a master of her craft. Her language is ...

    too long with unncessary metaphors

    the story is decent, but the book is way too long and as mentioned by someone in a review before, a drag at times.
    good things
    1. the story
    bad things.
    1. the language which i have to say is "bad english at times"
    2. unnecessary metaphors where they are not needed.

    the book could have been easily shortened down by around a 100-150 pages.

    Jaal....Intruging...sometimes a drag

    Though the pace of the book is good and the story comes up really well, I feel it is a little bit of a drag. The author could have easily cut down 100 pages.
    Additionally, the style of writing for Vikruthi's character is distracting, as it becomes tough to comprehend (Between prose and poetry like writing).
