Book Review: Evoked

Evoked by Ravi Subramanian and Mansi Babbar is a story of twin sisters, Sevita and Sama in the hilly town of Lavasa. The sisters though similar in looks and appearance, are polar opposites in nature.

As they start their college, unexpected deaths start plaguing the town. First, one of the twins dies and then one by one their classmates start dying. All deaths seem to be freak accidents or suicides but Inspector Mohite, given charge of investigation of the deaths, is sure that something more sinister is going on.

The writing is excellent, and the story is pretty captivating. The hubbub of college life, the calmness of a remote hill station, the energy of students is all captured very well by the writer.

Also, the theme of mental illness has been explored in the book. The fact that people tend to ignore any concerns by passing off something as “she/ he is just like that” and then something more sinister comes to the surface, has been addressed in the book.

The story is well paced, all characters are defined. The book is perfect for a calm weekend reading. I finished it in three days, but then I was forced to take multiple breaks while reading.

My rating: 3.8/5
