#BookReview ; Vizag Blue by Anil Cs Rao

Prem drove Kalpana back to the beach house...... The next morning... She was awoken by the bright Sun...without her clothes.... Kalpana... Thank God we found you! Anil and I were searching all night for you... We were about to notify the local authorities shortly.... What happened??? And where are your clothes??? Kalpana maintained her silence... She honestly did not have any answer's to nurse Usha's questions in any case....

Vizag Blue is a graphic novella by Anil Cs Rao, the additional artwork has been done by Paul Manning. The author lives in Ellicot City, Maryland USA with his family. His hobbies include fishing, walking & photography. He is an MFA Candidate at National University in San Diego.

The story is about Kalpana who is suffering from some deep emotional turmoil because of Prem due to which she has stopped talking. Usha a nurse have been given the responsibility to take care of her. Kalpana’s doctor sends both of them away at her beach house as she believes it will help the patient to recover. But will she be able to speak again or come out of depression? All this will be answered once you read it.

I am generally not a stern critic but this book will have to bear my blunt observations as I believe the author could’ve done a lot better. First of all this is supposed to be a psychological thriller but fails to make such an impression, the cover is dull & the title isn’t impressive either. The graphics are just below average, the words swam outside the bubbles & the language isn’t up to the mark either. The scripting of the story fails to deliver what the author wants hence leaves the readers between nowhere at the end of the story. In short a total miss.
