Number of pages-155
Sarfaraz is brought up with a good value system by his devoted parents. With time, curiosity and adolescent growth pangs take him through many experiences. His first brush with girls starts with a friend, and slowly meanders into casual flirtatious affairs with girls at college.
All through it, he realises that none of them have his undying, true love. A time comes when he realises who he truly loves, and in the midst of it all, he handles brutal enmity and takes on vile characters that misbehave with his friends.
Sarfaraz’s grows up in Coimbatore when there occur a series of bomb blasts. His identity is called in question, as his status as a Muslim makes people see him as an enemy. He loses something precious in the blasts and leaves to Sharjah, only for life to find him and surprise him.
This is Author’s second book and I got the opportunity to review this one too and it was good to see his improvement in writing style even though there was a few grammatical and sentence framing errors. It could have been better with a good editing service or proofreading; so that there won’t be any break in the flow of reading.
The book focuses on the life of the male protagonist, Sarfaraz, and his search for true love; he falls in love with a girl, Meghna, a down to earth, sweet and humble girl. They both fall for each other and together, stood to face the hurdles of life.
This book is a college romance type novel and is suitable for those who love youthful romance sorts of a novel. The author still needs to brush up his writing skills. In this era where there are too many romance novels in the market, his novel manages to grab a decent place of its own. The plot could have been more realistic; something that could connect well.
Wrap up of the review- Plot wasn’t that good, in the era full of romance genre stories Author could have done a far better job. The narration was good; just need to brush up his style of writing. The vocabulary was good too. It had simple dialogue delivery but too long monologues.
The name of the book too could have been better though the cover was good.
