The author had beautifully stroked the male characters who had been pillars behind the impeding times, she faces an enigma to define her relationship between them one who betrayed her lover , her mentor and her husband the author explains this to us by relating it with Ramayana and Mahabharatha the part which I solely enjoyed.

The readers will also develop a fervor on the political trauma faced by a good politician ,the aftermath of media , the intensity of public etc The author has truly shown justice in explaining the problems faced by a modern woman who is twisted umpteen on various plots.. The author attempts to cover up a long and tragic journey of a women but lacked the depth whether its the portrayal of the characters and there actions. Language is good but sounds more like a news report than a story. At times author tried to draw a parallel between the "Draupadi" in the Mahabharata with the protagonist of the novel which were too deliberate to make an impact.

Though the story has its grip and flow in the beginning The book is a not so good treatment of a very electric subject. Though the story has its grip and flow in the beginning but lost it in the rush of events. The success of protagonist as a politicians severely lacked in details and conviction that it become merely a fact not a moment that carries the story forward. The story also end abruptly with only a customary epilogue.

Instead of portraying the soundness of the character of protagonist the story depict her as a confused and sometimes mindless lady. Grade: B This is perhaps the bestselling novelists most anticipated release. Naturally, I too was undeniably eager for this one, and the blurb proved fodder to my imagination. Caught between her mentor and her spouse — both upright but ultimately flawed men — and a host of envious others who continue to cast aspersions on her character, she struggles to address the larger problems of the country.

Shruti Ranjan is a gutsy journalist in Delhi who has been dumped by her boyfriend of five years. Her parents, like most other parents, try to warm her up towards the idea of arranged marriages.

Circumstances improve a little then. She becomes pregnant and a tentative bond begins developing between the husband and wife.

However, on one fateful night, she is raped brutally in Kishanganj by a politically-sheltered local goon and loses her baby. The media casts aspersions on her character, plays it into a scandal, and the goon who performed the deed remains untouched. Even her husband begins doubting her integrity. Just when it looks like her life has come to another impasse, a leading member of the Opposition party offers her an unlikely solution: the ticket to contest the Lok Sabha elections and get justice meted out.

Shruti agrees, but only to see to it that her rapist is put behind the bars and justice is delivered. However, fate has other plans and when it looks like her initial purpose is complete, she is offered the post of the chairperson of the National Commission of Women. Under the tutelage of her charismatic mentor, Sharad Malviya, she is almost immediately elevated to the post of Deputy Home Minister.

Rohit, who is having trouble bridging the geographical gap between Kishanganj and Delhi, wants her to resign and come back home. She chooses being MP over being a wife, and finds herself increasingly attracted to the brilliant Home Minister, Sharad Malviya — an attraction which is certainly reciprocated.

His writing style is easy and to the point. The author also knows his politics, and often makes liberal use of mythology and history to drive home his point, an aspect I found very interesting. My main problem was Shruti Ranjan. She is not a public speaker, her mind is indecisive and cluttered, and I failed to see one iota of leadership in her.

Everything that she got was because Sharad had a soft spot for her. The author perhaps noted this and has shown Shruti to ask herself the very same question: do I deserve it? The answer is no, but does she do anything about it? No, she continues just as she was and eventually starts coming across as an excessively passive woman who was incapable of taking charge of her life. Because that is the sort of faithful government employee I am.

Such an idiot. After all, I have only stayed away from him for ninety percent of the duration of our marriage and spend just the entire day and evening with my boss…every day. My friend read it and the thoughts I just mentioned never entered her head.

She thought that the author had portrayed her wonderfully, and has shown all the sides of a woman. The scene of the rape, which moved many readers, also failed to evoke much of a response.

It was so much more telling than showing and read like a news report.

Shruti is the wife of an honest IAS officer posted in Bihar. One day, she is raped by the villainous politician-cum-goon, Salim Yadav. Unable to obtain justice, Shruti enters politics in order to avenge the dishonour she suffered. Towards the end of the story, we see Shruti getting divorced, but she never marries charismatic politician Sharad Malviya, the main person responsible for her political ascent. Just as The Edge Of Desire is the story of a wronged woman, one could also call it a political thriller.
