My Experience:

          Thank you for giving me such a valuable opportunity to review a story. When I started read this story I could not read even one single paragraph in one day. Then I read the paragraph repeatedly then  I got some interest which lead me to read the story. This story is totally different from other stories. I thank my friends, Teachers, my Department and all the Staff of SCD who helped me to accomplish this task. I wish to read more books in future for sure.
