Book Review

The story revolves around four friends; Aditi, Yohan, Vineet, and Ruchi, and various social issues, like eve-teasing to girl trafficking. There are various sub-plots in the story. The book also divings into current problems like rape, girl trafficking, corruption, sexual assault, and many more problems.

My Thoughts:

This book is definitely not a regular romance book. Though one of the main plots of the books is the love story between Yohan and Aditi, which is sweet, mature. The book also has a strong theme of a suspense drama, which I personally like a lot.  

Other than this, the characters seem real to me and how they behave is relatable. The narration of the book is good, and the pace is really fast.

The thing that I felt the author could have been done better is that some parts of the book need a much more detailed description. Especially in the mid chapters, the story seems to rush a lot. Personally, I wouldn't mind even if the book was 50 more pages, it would give a proper sense of the thing. 

Hopefully, in the future, readers will get much more seasoned work from Mr. Chetan Batra.

Overall, this is a good book to read and enjoy.
