981) Anari Part 7 of 9

Author: Ahmed Iqbal

Pages: 270 pages (digest) 

Date read: July 2016

There comes a moment when you are writing a long story when the writer wants to take a break. So what he does is he gives the characters in the story a break. He separates his main character from other usual supporting characters and takes him on a different journey in a different location. It happened in Sarkash when Mehmood Ahmed Moodi took Afzal to Sindh in Part 6. It was amazing. Of course you have to write it good, otherwise the reader will lose interest. 

Like I lost interest reading this. It was too much for Rafeeq. He was getting attacked by Rana (directly or indirectly) from left right and centre so he had to escape to London with Noor. About half of the pages of this part, he spent in London when Elisha kidnaps Noor and then attacks Rafeeq and goes mental. Finally Lord Ernest ended up giving Rafeeq his estate and business. 

All that is fine. The story was irrelevant and the author just kept dragging the story line on and on. The pacing was slow. He just made a mess. And another thing he was trying to give the impression that everyone is desperate to earn some pounds legally or illegally. He would make the characters go to random people and asking them if they wanna do something for five or ten pounds. The dialogues were robotic and repetitive. 

I just can’t wait to finish this story and start Shikari.
