The Full Circle by Namrata Gupta- Analysis

A man who identifies himself as traveller in terms of profession is a rarity. Aditya of full circle one such rare human being who keeps on travelling and leads a nomadic life. He settles down at places and do odd stuffs which helps him earn his living and once he has earned considerable amount of money he restarts his endeavour.

The character of Aditya is the highlight of the book. He is the nucleus of the book as well as the narrative.

To start off author has made sure to hook the readers with the style of narration. Exemplary language has done half the job in creating a steep graph in terms of reader interest.

"The clarity of the light blue sky was marred by numerous white clouds, irregularly shaped, rather enhancing the beauty of the picturesque landscape instead of increasing it."

Once Aditya reaches Darjeeling and settles there for three months he meets Zinnia, whom he falls for. By the time he realises his string feelings towards her, he stumbles upon a dark secret in her past, which she herself is unaware of. How Aditya deals with the secret is the rest of the book.

" The mirage was broken. What she knew as the truth turned into fiction to beguile her, the person she had been living with for so many years turned into someone she never knew  until then... "

The book deals with a lot of subjects. Adityas steps in helping people and his endeavour calls for an endearing read. Towards the second half author seems to lose the grip on the whole plot. The subplot wherein Aditya sets out to help Jacqueline, seems to be misplaced but since it the the part where he realises his feelings for Zinnia, it was required too. Overall the book is a promising yet short read.
