Life of a young adult is filled with joy and mystery. 'No Time to Pause' is a narration of a typical college student who decides to stay miles away from her family to get value education. She faces a host of challenges, encounters varied adventures and meets people who leave a tremendous impact on her life. With the college term ending, she leaves the institution not only as an academic achiever, but also a strong woman ready to face the rough world out there. She realises that life keeps moving on and there is no time to look back or regret.
Stories are never set against a preset format. Nevertheless we all expect a storyline to be designed in a particular manner. No time to pause breaks the conventional style of designing a storyline. The story is an anecdote of the college life of the protagonist. Other than the daily happenings, there aren't much of a story format.
For those who spent their college life in hostels, the book will surely evoke nostalgia. The homesickness, meeting new friends, having fun with them, dealing with possessiveness, misunderstandings, last minute assignment submissions all are instances that everyone has faced at least once it their life.
Sincerity is the core quality of the story. Aditi's love story is well portrayed with right amount of suspense. A little more homework would have taken the book to another level.
