In response to daily post’s one-word prompt : Ordinary
One day I made up my mind to ask a friend about a novel she was writing. My question, was she able to finish it? In reply she said she had finished writing it, but didn’t publish it.
I was always interested to read her first novel, and requested her to send me the pdf. She immediately sent it. I thought it probably is a normal story which I’d be able to read it.
When I started reading it I could not believe that it’s not an, Ordinary story and it didn’t seem this was her first novel. I read a lot of Urdu novels, but this novel easily is worth reading. You can tell she did a lot of research about everything she wrote, it includes the city. One might think if you live in the same city it’s easy to describe the streets, shopping centers in it, esp. when it happens to be a very large city. Honestly it’s not.
I live in a much smaller city, I bet I won’t be able to describe the streets, schools, or even a restaurant if I don’t personally visit them, sure you can imagine some, but it’s not that easy.
So far I read eleven chapters, but I have no idea what will happen next, it keeps me interested till the end of the chapter. I’m not sure if I’m making any sense, I can say this much, anyone who knows Urdu must read her novel, it is exceptional and not Ordinary as I first thought.
