Everyone has a story (Book Review)

What interested me to put this Book in my TBR was its ‘Best seller’ tag. It also had around 2500 reviews in amazon and yes of course that’s why it is in the best seller list. Also the cover looked very attractive.

Meera, a HR manager by profession dreams of becoming an Author. At weekends she goes to cafe ‘Coffee and Us’ where many Authors gather and give inspiring talks. Her friend Kabir, the manager of the cafe very well knew about her dream.

One day at the authors’ meet, a famous author asked the audience about their story and what they wanted from life. Meera said, she wanted to be an author like him. After she finished, the author pointed towards a man sitting behind her for an answer. He was Vivaan. Vivaan, an assistant branch manager at Citibank wanted to travel the world having no one around to bother him. Now Vivaan’s words gave Meera a story idea for her dream book. She wanted to know more about Vivaan.

When she finally approached Vivaan for his story, he tells Meera  why don’t she try writing Kabir’s story. And surprisingly she finds that Kabir did had a story to tell. It was about himself and Nisha. He also had a dream for his life, which he shared with Meera and Vivaan.

Plot sounds interesting right?

Now whose story Meera must have written in her book? Did Vivaan fulfill his dreams? What was Kabir’s story?

My Review

I always love it when an author uses simple language throughout the book. I did not realize how pages kept turning till I covered 50% of the book. After that a few pages were at slow pace describing about many places.The ending was quite predictable but the author cleverly brought in a twist to make it more colorful. I loved the twists and turns she added in the story.

I have mixed feelings about this book. I did enjoy reading the book. But at the same time I felt like certain things were missing here and there which could have made the book more realistic. The story revolved only around the said four characters till the end. When a character stays in hospital for few days, I expected a mention about the character’s family, but surprisingly there were only friends around. Since the plot was set in Indian context, I felt it little unrealistic.

In general it was a good entertainer. The author tells us four stories in one book which is quite interesting.
