    An engrossing, immersive read

    I'm cynical and apprehensive almost as a rule when picking up books written by new, young authors. It is with the same frame of mind that I picked up this book - prepared for the worst.
    I was proven wrong.
    Essentially, the novel is about a girl living in Kashmir, a war-torn province in India. Novels about Kashmir have a tendency to become political and war novels because of the conflict in the region, however the author made sure Kashmir remained a setting for the novel, and didn't let it o...

    Compelling read

    A thought provoking work by the author. It is a tale of three young children, growing in the war zone of Kashmir between the insurgency and the exodus of the Kashmiri Pundits.

Be it their cheerful smile when love knocks in their hearts or the endless tears when they lose their loved ones - all the emotions feel real as if the reader has undergone all these experiences. The Lamentations of a Sombre Sky is a beautiful narra...

There was no way I was going to skip this book; and while it took me a long time to get to it and even more time to finish it, it was worth it because this book is exceptionally beautiful. The only disadvantage (or that's what I consider it) is tha...

    Would recommend to my friends

    “The Lamentations of a Sombre Sky” is a 248 page novel written by Manan Kapoor, which is divided into three distinct parts (each beginning with a short poem). The book is very hard not to rate highly because of the author’s writing style, which I could draw parallels to C.S. Lewis’s “The Chronicles of Narnia”. To elaborate, both of the authors’ narrative style is very descriptive, in third person, and is initially very slow, but it gradually picks up speed and is very hard to put down. Though...
