There comes a time when nostalgia knocks on the door and sometimes, it knocks very hard. Well, this is what happened when I finished reading Sundari’s book Meghna. It took me back to my school and college days where I was a sucker for “happily ever-afters”. The equation hasn’t changed much, but now that I read more and more genres, this book was like a flash back into the good old times.
Coming to the plot, honestly, the storyline is not unique. It is the story of a beautiful girl Meghna in love with a handsome and rich boy Rahul, who also happens to be Meghna’s brother Sanjay’s childhood friend. As it is in all love stories, there are certain villianous characters too. I am not digging into the intricacies in the storyline because there are no intricacies. It is a simple love story told in simple words which is what kept me hooked to the book.
The language is simple, the editing is crisp, but there are a few typos that could have been avoided. The USP of the book is that it is a simple and straightforward love story which makes it an one-sitting reading and an easy, breezy affair.
I don’t know if it is fair for me to rate this book. I liked it because it took me back in time when I was a teenager ravaging through such books. If you are a reader who is looking for an unique storyline (Read the author’s friendly warning above), you might have to look for something else. But, if you are like me who likes to read a light and easy book once in a while which ends happily, this book is for you. So, if I have to rate this book, I would give it 3.75 out of 5 stars.
Rating: 3.75 out of 5
