My Take on the Book
After the exam, Amir and Sanam secured a position, they ended together at a training academy in Mussorie, and that’s where the chemistry unfolds. From love blooming to the relationship taking a turn when it involves family, politics, and religion. I won’t be revealing much about the plot line, but all I can say is that it is a gripping read which will surely keep you engrossed.
The book is written in simple language thus you will be able to catch up with the story. If you are someone who enjoys a good romance novel, then you will love this one.
The author has created the characters in a very interesting way, and the plot is perfectly crafted. Usage of strong vocabulary and language is a plus point of the book.
What attracted me to this book was the fact that the book will soon be turned into a web series, and I am a huge fan of books adapted for screen work. Now I will be patiently waiting for the series and will judge how much justice it has done to the book. In the meantime, you can pick a copy today to explore the story which involves politics, romance and social issues, a mix of all this makes the perfect read when you are quarantined.
