The Girl With Green Tinted Hair is beautiful and one of the sweetest story I have ever read. After reading the title I was very much expecting it to be a thriller like Girl on the Train, Gone Girl, Girl behind the Glass etc. This is what “The Girl” in the title gives you away with the idea of the book.
But I was surprised to see what the book had in store instead.
The story is divided into 4 chapters which are basically the four seasons in a year – Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter. The writer has very cleverly the life of a human in every season to the lifecycle of a tree. Spring denotes childhood, summer denotes teenage. Autumn has been related to adulthood while winter to old age.
The words weave in gracefully to form a story. Like a song, with every word it touches your heart. I couldn’t have enough of the life lessons shared artfully throughout the story. Each word seems to have a meaning beneath its meaning and each sentence seems to be a quote.
I definitely recommend this book to everyone, from all age groups.
