This book remains close to heart just for the beautiful descriptions of those places which makes the readers to travel to that place. The author has painted the book with poetic feel with his narration. The book was upheld by the opening of every chapters where the author describes the scenic beauty of the location. The language was simple yet excellent. The story behind every characters were neatly weaven and the book also holds a real meaning to the word “love” through its coherent storyline which makes the book an interesting read. It gives an insight to love. This book proves that nothing is permanent in this world and also serves as a page turner from cover to cover. Though the book fails to satisfy the thirst for reader at some points, it serves as a light read to calm down the polluted heart with its mesmerising description of places.
The cover is simple yet natural which depicts the backdrop of the Kausani village which plays a major role in the book. The title is unique yet remains unjustified. The blurb is more enough to give an insight of what’s hidden inside.
Verdict : A light read on love worth the money spent.
