Author Spotlight & Book Review : Journey Across The Street by Madhusudhan R.



 “When you travel, you don’t fear the unknown. You become a part of it.

 You don’t meet a million people. You meet yourself, in million forms.” She had once said.

I had fallen for a gypsy heart.

We were complete opposites. She was a secret traveler, I was a dreamer. 
She was filled with experiences, I was filled with stories.
Though we lived across the street, we spoke to each other after 14 long years of awkward silence. Everything had changed. She was a well-kept secret. Everything about her was a missing piece of beautiful puzzle she had turned into. But the Universe had other things to offer before I could bring all the pieces together. After all that only one question remained, WHERE IS RHEA?

They begin to understand each other better, though as individuals they are two opposite poles.Their friendship slowly evolves into love. And then the suspense factor jumps in to keep you guessing till you finish the book.
The story revolves around Gautham, Rhea and Gautham’s friends. Gautham is a simple guy, leading a normal life with his family and friends. He is a dreamer. Rhea is mysterious.Brought up by a single parent, she has  a troubled life.A secret traveler she is, who appears to be a rebel at the beginning . But, as you flip through the pages, her character unfolds. She will be loved for what she is. Does she sound like the main protagonist? Yes, she is. Gautham’s friends @ his gang is sure to remind everyone their good old college days. They are the kind of youngsters who dream to pursue their passion rather than a 9-5 desk job.
The author uses Gautham’s point of view to narrate the story. His writing style is effortless and uses a simple language. The plot is crisp with no drama, but packed with suspense. The fun moments between Gautham and his friends are easy-breezy. How Rhea reconciles suddenly with Gautham owes to her mysterious character?! The conversations between the protagonists makes you ponder about life and unpuzzles Rhea’s character. The story did not have any dull moment and scores full for an engrossing read. The book is quite short and it’s easy to devour in one go.
This budding author has the knack of grabbing the attention of his readers, right from page 1. The philosophies and life quotes are laid out so nicely that doesn’t cause boredom, but makes you give it a thought. Overall, a short read with enough mystery and nail-biting moments.
