Book- You Beneath Your Skin
Author – Damyanti Biswas
You Beneath Your Skin is one riveting tale of gruesome crimes, deep emotions, betrayal, characters that’ll stay with you for days to come and the horrifying fact that this book is just the product of the Author’s imagination and the truth that reality is much worse than what you’re going to read.
Human trafficking, sexual abuse, drugs, acid attacks, murder and what not !
Every crime is ultimately connected to each other. The cruelty with which one person harms another is beyond imagination. Inflicting an unbearable degree of pain on one person, especially after knowing the result of such commission is barbaric !
The reality that both the abuser and the abused are the part of the same society, that we cross path with such people, that we really don’t know who is watching and might be targeting his next move on us shows how we are so unsafe and vulnerable amongst our own kinds.
The intensity of the victim and the victim’s loved ones suffering has been so intricately described that it’ll show how much effort the Author has put into writing this story. I love the fact that she has given equal attention to all the topics she has touched in this book. I admire how tastefully she has handled the relationship between an Autistic child and his mother; the portrayal of a mother’s struggle and patience and that she is the epitome of love has been has been very well executed. The Author’s narration is so solid that when she describes an acid attack victim’s pain, it draws a clear picture that the acid thrown at a person, very literally shows the intensity of grudge the abuser holds against the victim.
Alongwith with great writing, the Author has put life into the characters. I loved how the writing style and effect kept changing for each character, that was brilliant !
I highly recommend this book to everyone.
