Book Review: Obstinacy Dauntless Chase (e-book) by Dhishna Radhay

Name of the Book: Obstinacy Dauntless Chase (e-book)

Author: Dhishna Radhay

About the Author: Born in Mauritius, Dhishna has been a secondary school teacher in various schools across the island. She is currently an Executive Assistant in a prestigious company in Dubai, where she moved in 2005. Since then, Dubai and its people have taken a fundamental place in her life and heart. Writing is her passion and she has been writing since the age of fifteen. This is her first book and she is currently working on a collection of short stories.

Verdict: This story revolves around Cléopâtre Lamaure who was born in a small town in Mauritius who is not only beautiful but also witty and courageous who lives with her four year old son Steve. The story depicts life of Cléopâtre and her struggles. What happens in her life that she who was kind and smiling as ever was bound to be cold and unsympathetic to the outside world? Will she be able to write her own destiny or will she succumb to her destiny’s plans? All the answers of why, when, if’s and but lie in this book.
It is a nice story line depicting how a woman deals with all the issues that persist in our society and is bound to either rebel and win or succumb and bow down to the male dominating society. Though nice the book could have been better as it lacks the depth and detailing factor, but for an e book comprising of fifty seven pages it’s written nicely. But if only the author could pull it off atleast till a minimum of hundred pages and gone into more detailing it would have come out in a good way.
Two people are named as Steve though with different spellings. It may confuse the reader as a spelling mistake. If only those two characters were named differently it would do a lot deal of good to the book as well as save the reader from being confused.

To sum up with the review it’s a nice story portraying the strength and issues a woman faces even in today's world and how she tries to fight with them and stand on her own with dignity and respect. A nice read.

Ratings: 3 OUT OF 5.
