The best read to distract you in these though times of pandemic.|Book Review on Paper Moon by Rehana Munir

‘‘Nothing. Something. Everything. We woke up one day –on different days.- and realized we’re each other’s past. ’’

There are books that you don’t like to end, the kind of books that are so simple that it gives you a sense of peace reading them. ‘Paper Moon’ is one such warm read. A book, I won’t forget. The magic of the words hit differently. A pleasure and a reader’s delight. Munir executes fineness. She narrates the situation with details that made me in awe of her writing. I haven’t really read Jhumpa Lahiri’s work, but whatever I gained through her brilliant works, I won’t be wrong if I compared Munir’s writings with the living literary legend.

The details precisely show the real scenario of books and bookshop. The characters are represented in wonders. These characters spark a new real meaning to the book. Fiza’s story has a lot of excitement and experience from her life.

‘PaperMoon’, is in parts inspired by the author’s personal life experience. Perhaps, this adds wholesomeness and unconditional warmth to the book. ‘PaperMoon’ is like an endless journey on the road, where you get to see and acknowledge different people, their perspectives. Munir’s fluidity and simplicity steals the show. It vibes for a perfect 90s feel good- books, romance, Jazz music, references about classics and Bombay posh vibrancy that would really urge you to explore the city through these blessed pages.

There’s a restlessness and subtle attachment you get when you’re with this book. This book is a grounded stunner. Fiza’s journey is a beautiful transition- from handling disturbed family relationships maturely to becoming an owner of a bookshop from scratch, this protagonist has won my heart with her independent, charming personality.
At these uncertain and worrisome times, ‘PaperMoon’ comes to a rescue to take us back to the 2000s and flood with happy feelings. Munir is highly successful in what she wanted to portray with this proud creation. This book is an art of sheer brilliance and honest dedication.
