Book Review : The 23rd Girl

The 23rd Girl cover

This post is written as part of the 6th anniversary celebration of my blog.



Initially, I had a bit of difficulty connecting with the character so obsessed with a number. But as I progressed through the book, the character Rashv grew on me. We all have our whims and fancies and sometimes never realise how far it can take us.

Funnily, the character kept reminding me of a friend from college who used to fall head over heel every girl he came across. What I loved the most about the book was at no point the authors tried to justify or refute his theory about the lucky no. The build-up to the climax was really good, making it hard to predict what route he would take.

I liked the vivid description of his transformation throughout the story.

Although I wish the last chapter had more friction after so much tension building up, it was too smooth.

Overall, a good read.


Rating : 3 / 5
