    Leila A Novel review Õ 3 Leila A NovelAs an enthusiast of both speculative fiction and Indian writing I’ve noted with some dismay that the contribution of Indian English writers to this uniue genre has been uite minimal or their “Indian ness” underplayed in favor of a generic nameless western identity Which is a shame really because how can you not realize how perfect a setting urban India is for dystopian fictionThat’s precisely why books like Leila are a breath of fresh airLeila starts off with a bleak but not so hypothetical scenario The inhabitants of urban India browbeaten by economic recession and a scramble for essential resources like drinking water and clea

    Leila A Novel review Õ 3 Leila A Novel Originally posted on my blogIn Purity Town Prayaag Akbar's Leila Leila A Novel by Prayaag Akbar is set in the near future in an Indian town one may call it Purity Town where the obsession with 'purity' caste class and community has reached its high point In this town a mother Shalini searches for her daughter Leila who was taken away from her many years ago because she and her husband refused to succumb to the new divisive and controlling social orderThe narrative of the novel begins in medias res It oscillates between the present where Shalini searches desperately for Leila and the past as Shalini recounts how

    Leila A Novel review Õ 3 Leila A NovelThere’s been a notably high number of dystopian novels being published in recent years and it feels like this reflects a widespread anxiety Novels such as “Station Eleven” “The Country of Ice Cream Star” “The Power” and “Hazards of Time Trave

    Leila A Novel review Õ 3 Leila A NovelIt is actually a 35 star book but I have to give it 4 stars because of how it made me feel shudder in the knowledge that the dystopian world of this book could actually be a realityI also appreciated the details in the plot which make it an Indian story I thought the plot had a great premise but weakened a bit midway making for a weak ending The literature and narration were good a refreshing feeling after the recent bad crop of Indian authors in EnglishThe effort to close the story this complex with very few open endings all in the spread of one book is commendable tooRead this book if you've felt a growing uncertainty if the world in Atwood's Handmaiden's Tale would be a reality Leila's world is close and could be in our neighborhood

    Leila A Novel review Õ 3 Leila A NovelI read the book because I saw the brilliant trailer for it's Netflix adaptation The author does a great job at building up the premise of a totalitarian regime that wouldn't take a lot of change to get to from the world's current hard right political swing It's all downhill from thereWhat promises to be a warning against totalitarianism and savarna economic and social dominance in the 21st century instead ends up being a collection of fears highlighted by the left leaning media with a wannabe mother daughter story arc that never fully satisfies or scares For instance the worst thing that happens in a purity camp The lead character gets addicted to some sort of muscle relaxants and is helped by a supposedly good doctor In comparison the prison chapters in Shantaram are so vivid that you end up feeling imprisonedEverything feels half baked and forced Almost like the author got stoned an

    Leila A Novel review Õ 3 Leila A NovelSome arresting descriptions of deprivation and terrible living conditions and although I really wanted to keep reading to see what happened the whole story didn't hang together well enough for me I never fully understood who was controlling people apart from 'The Council' or why Shalini and her family was picked on was it Riz or not Why didn't Shalini write to her mother if she was able to write to her friend and her nanny There was too many unanswered plot points although perhaps because of the life Shalini was forced to live she didn't have the answers so we didn't either Maybe I wanted to know about those 16 years when her daughter was gone about the daily grind I know I'm not being very clear but I was generally dissatisfied without really being able to say why
