Review: First impression of the book is Overwhelming. The cover design is pleasing and match with the title. The lady blind folded in a rose garden clearly indicates about her life journey which is build on difficulties. The blurb engenders an urge to read the book to the end, as it talks about girl’s journey based on love and relationships. Since, passionate romance and relationship are one of my weaknesses, as a result, I could not stop my eyes from the book till I finished it. However, the journey of Kadambari, the main protagonist of the book is well narrated and nicely portrayed by the Author. As a reader, you can relate to her in some part of her phase of life. The harsh phase of her life, failure in love, was staunchly undertaken by her in the book. As a result, I just fell in love with the girl. The latter part of the book where she find her dream man was the highlight of the book. I just enjoyed reading the love between Rudra and Kadambari. Totally enthralling and well written book. The relationship between Rudra and Kadambari really touched the core of my heart. These days these type of people are seldom found, but they are the dream man of every girl. A nice and attention-grabbing book for all the readers who love to read passionate romance.
Drawback: The font size was very small so it was sometimes difficult to read the book. Secondly the length of the book was too long. Some part of the pages could be cut short like Kadambari and Rudra’s honeymoon part was stretched too long which can be eluded, similarly Shapath and Kadambari’s relation was also can be cut short. These things make the book dreary and you want to leave the book in between.
Nonetheless, the concept and narration hold you to discontinue the book in between. Therefore, as a reviewer I would suggest if you love reading books and have good time then ignore the length of the book and grab the book to read. I loved it and would recommend people to read it. Good luck author waiting to read more from you…
