“#Test 1: Carry the bowl of love and
pour a drop of the venom of distrust. Does it survive? #Test 2: Best friends
forever, really? Put her in a cobweb of mysteries and see if she bleeds with a
smile. #Test 3: It’s simple. There are no rules in the game except to commit
SINS. But you’ll be served death for dinner. Are you still ready to play the
sinful game? She’s an agnostic. She survives on my own terms in a metropolitan
city. She sees around. She sees the puddle of human abhorrence everywhere.
She’s knocking at the door of answers that her mom refuses to open. She loves a
guy who plays with heart beats. She has a best friend who rules death. Her dad
rules the island of enigma. And then there’s a man who binds them all in a
single thread- the thread of the game. The rule is pretty simple. They need to
commit sins, one after the other. Take revenge, be sinful, break the rules,
forget the morals of relationships but if they try to escape…they’ll be
thrown…in the land of the unknown from where none can return. So shall we
begin the game? The Committed Sin is a STAND-ALONE romance that you cannot
afford to miss. This time Metro Kolkata has an untold story which vehemently
explores the sphinx of mortal relationships. Experience the journey of
nightmares like never before. The bestselling novelist of Till We Meet Again
and You Touched My Heart Leema Dhar weaves love, revenge, hatred, mystery and
despair–all in a single thread. “

My Review

The story line need not be mentioned in this review since the blurb itself is a synopsis of the book. The story and narration are promising and engaging. Right from the prologue, authoress succeeded in leaving the readers inquisitive and forces them to hook to the book to know what next. Each chapter comes up with a new twist which traverses seamlessly from chapter to chapter.

Great care is taken in characterisation. Noteworthy fact is that Authoress could convincingly help the readers in visualizing not only the outward look but also the inner worth of the characters. The first person narration of  Seya comes off in  a matured fashion, while maintaining the liveliness of a teenager.

How Pakhi became the protagonist’s best friend, is not conveyed well since very few instances of togetherness is manifested.  During the emotional voyage with the characters, grammatical errors served as eyesores in some areas, since it would leave the readers confused as to what exactly did the writer intended to convey. The climax did not keep up with the level of the the rest of the book may be because of the predictability or abruptness. 

Overall the book is a great read with a strong story line and outstanding narration. With a little more care and rework in the Grammar side as well as the climax, we can expect a great piece of literature.
