    Unsound writing style

  2. says:

    The writing is horrible the sentences are strung together in a desperate attempt to make them seem poetic Not just that the author sympathizes with a child following the footsteps of his terrorist father She labels the Indian soldiers situated in Kashmir as 'people who do not belong there' The authour portrays the terrorist and his children as the protagonist and the soldiers as evil antagonists After reading this I'm never gonna read the rest of her books
