a good book

It was an engrossing novel, quite well written. I picked it up around evening and finished it at 8 p.m. (which speaks a volume of the interest part).
The story revolves around Leela, who is not so sure about what she wants from life, except for her dream of getting famous one day as an RJ. The fact that she is no where near to it makes the novel all the more interesting.
Branded as unlucky due to her Mangli (Oh! God!) and the black colour (Why does colour matter so much?) of her skin by her p...

great story

What a wonderful story from a debut writer. Well done Sujata.
We need more such books from you in future.

Leela reflects a lady of today's world and all the characters are nicely narrated in the story.

I am totally overwhelmed and satisfied.

Thoroughly gripping !

It was indeed a great experience to read the novel, which is thoroughly gripping, with an element element of suspense throughout, along with a message for the society. The style of writing, is predominantly 'K?ru?ya Rasa' - Emotion of compassion as per Bharata Muni's N?tyas?stra, an ancient work of dramatic theory. This enables everyone to connect to the novel and evokes emotion in the reader. A must read !

An amazing read!

I'm so very glad I could get hold of one of the first few copies of this book.
At one end of the corridor, there's Leela, a naive Punjabi kudi ,who gets drawn into situations that leaves her crushed, but when pushed beyond a point she becomes a force to be reckoned with.
The other end of the corridor is a book that makes you get up and think about the dilemmas faced by a common woman in uncommon situations, how a woman has to live up to the society's expectations, forgoing her dreams and suf...

A simple read

Interesting and different from the usual books belonging to the romance genre/ books on societal realities, ‘The Other End of the Corridor’ is not all about chasing one’s dreams. It is also not all about lies and deceit. Instead the author has cleverly woven the life of the hapless girl child forced into marriage at a young age, the crushing of her reams and the apathy towards her state both at home and outside. There is all that’s anti-girl, anti- woman portrayed here like gender bias, domes...

Superb Read

The Other End Of The corridor is an alarming story about a young girl Leela and her journey. It is an eye-opener to all the atrocities that are committed on women. Simple yet powerful, this book clearly echoes the disturbing elements in our society that simply leave women oppressed. Issues like early marriage, dowry, abuse are clearly highlighted. It’s high time that we as a society stopped participating in such crimes and worked progressively towards gender equality. This book strongly advo...

Great Read

I believe The Other End of the Corridor is really engrossing with a coming-of-age social trauma that has shaken up the whole nation. This book makes you get up and think about the dilemmas faced by a common woman in uncommon situations, how a woman has to live up to the society's expectations, forgoing her dreams and suffer silently. The characters crafted in this book are strong, striking and are believable. The language used by the author is very colloquial and simple. Looking forward to re...
