Title: Switched off
Author: Karma Tenzin (Yongba)
What is the book about?
The book is about the mystery behind the death of Mr.Ram Badur Gurung, who is very simple that he never used to drink alcohol and would never be in conflict with any anyone. The title switched off; literally meaning the light that remained switched off and also the death of Ram Badur Gurung.
Who is your favourite character?
My favourite character from the story is Max (police officer) because; He is the only one who played a greatest role finding the person who had killed Ram Badur Gurung. Though it is his duty being a police officer, but I am inspired by looking at his hard work and talent.
The part of book you enjoyed
Though the whole book was interesting, however the best part I selected is at the end. I could have tears in my eyes reading a letter which was written by Karma Teazin. Yes, the murderer was Karma Tenzin and he accepted himself as one of the mad day. Inside the letter “They should only know that their daddy had died in a terrible vehicle accident, nothing more” this sentence touched my heart, thought he never take care of his family. But when I could read this sentence I could feel that he do respect his children and wife.
What could be the theme?
As this is a novel book, it contains lots of theme. From my side the theme would be, Love is the most powerful emotion, and that makes it the most dangerous “.Because of love the story had started and ended with love itself. Karma Tenzin had loved Rigsel Seday madly/ blindly that he even poisioned Ram Badur Gurung. “The only disability in life is a bad attitude “.


Recommendation
I would suggest you to read this book which is beautifully written with understandable words. You will find nothing difficult to read and understand it. And when it comes to love story, hope every young boys and girls will enjoy reading.
Happy reading
Thank you

My first suspense/thriller bhutanese book that I read. This book is simple and easy to read where it tells you about "LOVE".
How beautiful everything is when you love and is being loved by the right person but how devastated and worst it can be if otherwise.
