The first chapter was quite good. I really enjoyed read this novel because of its realistic setting and plot. The characters are Priya, Madhu, Asha, Pratap, etc. the characters felt believable. I especially liked the Asha character and the way she struggle for the son's educational.
The difficult words: bugged out, forgo, groggily, churning, rickshaw, vigil, ensconced.

I read just only one page and the story was too common. I can't give so many comments about it. But, still i'm curious about the next story.

A little conflict starts to begin. Especially the conflict begin from the mothers' family that do not agree about the way Priya to have a child by doing surrogate. Two mothers had difficult situation but they still did the best of their family. I feel the emotional of the Asha and Priyas as mother. The chapter was good enough. :)
New words: mercenary, perversion, taint, smeared, pang, rugged, chafed, incongruous, drool, errant, pallor.

The story was a little bit complicated, but still I can get the point.
There are so many characters from the beginning of chapter 3. I should pay attention more on who and where they came from.

In chapter 4, the setting was talking about Asha's family and the problem they felt. Asha tried the best she could. In chapter 5, told about the first trimester of Asha pregnancy and her daily life in "a house for happy mothers". I think, it was so good story.

The climax became more complicated. The mothers facing different problem. Asha as a surrogate had emotional problem. She couldn't love the baby in the her womb. Priya, as a mother that ask Asha to be her surrogate, got pregnant for the third time, but then lost her baby again. The story was quite good. :)

I love the Asha character in this novel. I like the way she faced the problem and solve it. She was really a patient and strong woman. Good job :)

In the last of this chapter, I don't want to give so many comments because there are a lot of distraction and additional characters. But, I still like it. :)

It's hard to me to understand the story, because of the busy class.
|16||19 October 2017||Chapter 13||4||My home||15 mins|
What I didn't like from the story is the additional characters. That's way the novel sometimes seemed complicated. I had to pay attention more on the characters.
|17||20 October 2017||Chapter 14||9||TV room||20 mins|
I can't any longer to get to know the end of this novel. But sometimes I feel bored because the story was too long. That's way I just read for 1 chapter only.

Because I have speaking class, I just read only 1 page. I'm not engage with this chapter because the class is quite busy.
|19||23 October 2017||Chapter 15||4||TV room||15 mins|
Too many characters with different problems. I think it's not interesting because the problems didn't relate to the main characters' problem

In the middle I read this chapter, I was sleeping so I did not really remember the story told about.

I gave two thumbs-up for the author for writing this impressive novel. When I read this novel, I had random thoughts and mixtured feelings. Those are curious, annoyed, sad, moved emotionally, proud, etc. But in this part I didn't like the Asha's character. Unintentionally, she became an egoist person.

Before I read this final chapter, I thought "what will happen in the end? ". I was so exciting. Then for about 30 mins to read the final chapter. I don't know why it's little bit disappointed me. I thought the end would be impressed me. The end was flat. But I really appreciate the author :)
