These are the adjectives that appear in just the first sentence of an India Today review of Sagarika Ghose's Blind Faith:

- "engrossing-enough"

- "now-mythic"

- "state-of-the-art"

- "great"

- "allegorical"

- "ominously"

- "simple"

- "right"

- "manifold"

- "blinding"

One stopped reading at this point.


  • can you post the sentence please? i am curious.

  • "The best of this novel unfortunately also turns out to be the albatross around its narrative neck: that it reaches beyond its engrossing-enough plot to aspire to that now-mythic being, the state-of-the-art great Indian (allegorical) novel about the state of the nation. Its ominously simple title, Blind Faith, sets us on the right path to such manifold discoveries as we are meant to encounter, illumining with almost blinding brilliance not just the pebbles and the potholes but also (and therein lies the weight that pulls at the neck) the milestones and the markers."

    My mistake. It's actually two sentences.
