BOOK REVIEW: Her Master Key, Shruti Johri.

Language: English
Paperback: 172 pages
Publisher: Rupa Publications India (20 December 2017)

This is the first time I’m reading a book that gives an insight about the things happening in the fancy five-star hotels in India. This book is an account of Gauri’s experience as a housekeeper at a leading hotel. There are 8 chapters, and each chapter describes an instance which will shock the reader. By the end of the book you will have immense respect towards all the hotel employees. It definitely breaks the stereotype about them.

This book is well researched and well written. You can devour this in one sitting. In the chapter ‘ Lost and found’ the author has beautifully portrayed how someone close to you can break your trust and at the same how a random person, a stranger, can restore someone’s faith. ‘Did Eye Lie’ talks about the guilt that we all carry in some form or the other. In ‘Face of a mob’ she makes us wonder how an individual face can be so different from the face of its mob. These are just few examples. There are a variety of subjects that are dealt with in this book. Some of the topics are light and others heavy like the life of a sex worker. There’s just so much to learn from each character.

Overall I really enjoyed reading this book. This book restores faith in humanity. An interesting read, and I highly recommend it.

MY RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
