Loved it! 😍

A byte-sized psychological thriller with an unexpected twist. A much needed wake up call for today’s society.

The story starts off on a light note and proceeds to chug forward in that tone for the most part. What would otherwise be a typical day of commute for Leo, turns out to be an absolute nightmare when he comes across a live stream of his daughter. Even as he struggles to grapple the reality of what hit him, he is forced to get into action before things take a turn for the worse.

Every single character seems to have been pulled out from real-life and it’s fair to say that the author has done a wonderful job of depicting how the present-day society functions. Leo’s thought process, point of view, and attitude will make you think, laugh, cry, ruminate, and contemplate the various aspects of life. You can’t help but agree with the arguments and statements he makes. It’s not a sanctimonious talk either. In fact, he is truly repentant for the vicious cycle of monotonous life he is living. He has a great sense of humor and you’d develop an instant liking for him.

The twist, in the end, is sure to leave you dumbfounded. It’s not something that you can get over with easily. It will compel you to retrospect/review the role you play in society. A difficult pill to digest that's for sure.
