The Soft Target by Kalyan Nanda- Review

Mohan is a brilliant boy with an extraordinary IQ. But he has an incurable neurotic problem. He cannot process his thoughts into words and end up saying nonsense which makes him look like an imbecile or a bully.
The storyline naturally gives the impression of a docile Mohan who is afraid of everything but surprisingly author has given the readers a fighter right from the beginning.

The craft of Mohan’s character and individuality makes the book stand out. How Mohan excels in studies and attains success of more or less predictable but the level of inherent confidence and perseverance is fresh to read. Mohan is in an indifferent relationship with God for making him helpless and giving him a handicap and it aggravates when his parents die in a car accident. Further how Mohan survives and comes out of the trauma in the middle of the story. Further, we can see the campus friendship, love, heartbreak, and all the spicy and sweet ingredients for a YA story.

The plot and the overall storyline have a lot of possibilities. Nonetheless, it has not been used to the maximum extent. The effortless style of narration makes it easy for beginners and it is a fresh style of writing attempt by the author. Despite the lack of consistency in the narration, the book is sure to attract the YA audience. There is an underlying message of hard work and perseverance. The author has also shown the readers how one can come out of difficult situations.
