‘It Just Required One Step‘ is a political drama which portrays the life of a student, Samar who want to pursue law. He went to Hastings University for that and the environment there is completely different. Politics is in the air and Samar doesn’t like this, he also fell in love with a girl named Nupur who loves somebody else. Amidst this love triangle, election for student president is coming up and after so many tragedies, Samar end up nominating for the election and end up in jail. How and Why?
The theme of the book is to display the realities of student politics. The concept is well-chosen and is an important matter.
The title and the cover are perfect and both make sense at the end of the book. Narration of the story is gripping and from main character, Samar’s point of view. His thought process and feelings are expressed well.
Other characters, whose feelings couldn’t be expressed, seems to be confusing with their actions. This can break the pace but no worries because the writing style of the author is smooth and will hook you to the last page.
The setting in the book is normal and the relationship between Samar and his father is portrayed beautifully with utter honesty.
The book has some of the Hindi dialogues which makes this book’s target audience narrow down to readers who know both the languages. The language is easy to understand and vocabulary is good.
The book has a little scope of improvement and overall, it is an engaging read and I recommend it to beginners and to the readers who love realistic fiction.
