    1. Good Book to read. I think personally think the author was successful in telling what he intended to, which is to show how the western ideas of feminism,equality has been misinterpreted by the Indians and how they are affecting the current family structure and familial ties. He tells 2 different stories happening at he same time and has chosen 4 main characters to take the stories to their obvious conclusions. All of them are having grey shades and you cannot side with any one of them if you thi [...]

    2. May be many female readers wont like it. But Bhyrappa is such author who believes in reality rather than appeasement. May be the facts he mentions may come true in recent future considering the trend in the developed nations. Harassment of male using the laws provided for protection of female interest can be a reality.

    3. awesome read. the book was really of a different genre from what i have read. it talks about extra marital affairs and the after effects of it. the author shows that such affairs are not stable and may fall down at any given time.speaks also on westernization and how indians mis-concieve westernization and get attracted to it and thereby degrade indian culture

    4. Characters Managala and Ela have really come out very well. They induce fear in the hearts of the readers who sympathize to the situation of Jayakumar and Vinaychandra while reading. The endings given to the stories of both Jayakumar and Vinayachandra live up to the title. Its not very difficult to imagine the real world people for the characters Mala kerur and Chitra hosur. The ways in which similar situations are handled by the characters Jayakumar and Vinaya gives one or message/s to people. [...]

    5. An important truth about SL Bhyrappa’s works is that they haven’t had the fortune of being reviewed by the best of critics. The huge tome of “criticism” that currently exists is just thinly-disguised abuse. Which is sad because given the huge amount of popularity and wide readership that his works enjoy, one would expect a fair amount of quality literary criticism. This phenomenon hasn’t spared his latest, Kavalu (Cleft), already in its 8th reprint in about 50 days.

    6. Book is about modern society. It blends the various people around us in modern society into characters. Book is on sensitive topic of Feminism, and family system of modern era-globalization era. Good book to read as it is very close to current happening in society.


    8. My first Kannada book and I enjoyed it. Brilliantly written. Hope to read more in Kannada in the future

    9. the author has completly told what he wanted to convey.Yes, it clearly mentions the modern city life style and the feelings of a person who lost his wife.

    10. ರಾಜಮ್ಮಳ ಜೀವನ ಬಹಳ ಬೇಸರ ತರಿಸಿತು. ಮಂಗಳಂಗೆ ಇನ್ನು ಶಿಕ್ಷೆ ಆಗಬೇಕಿತ್ತು. ಆಧುನಿಕತೆ ಸರಿಯೋ ಅಥವಾ ತಪ್ಪೋ ಎಂಬ ಪ್ರಶ್ನೆ ಹುಟ್ಟು ಹಾಕದೇ ಇರಧು. ಬೈರಪ್ಪ ರಿಗೆ ಧನ್ಯವಾದಗಳು.
