    I like the idea of the novel. Marriage really isn’t a straightforward fairy tale.

        I think most of the Indian women go through this , before marriage they live in a fantasy world where a prince charming will come on a white horse and would take her to a dream world. Reality is different.
        Than they learn how to adjust and still Smile , for the sake of thier family and for the sake of her image in society.
        Would like to read this book πŸ™‚

      Interesting choice of topic for a book! I want to pick it up to know why you didn’t agree with the ending. And I also want to know what Atharv’s point of view is and how he justifies his behavior.

    There are so many stories around the subtle complexities of marriage and the fact that they are being written and spoken of at a time and age when we think there’s more awareness around these topics, suggests that human relationships will never leave the ‘complicated’ tag. Thank you for this review Ritu.

      Life is not a fairy tale, and most of the girls are kept in the shell of fairy tales and it becomes difficult to break that shell. Would read is book for sure, it seems so relatable in today’s world.

    I had heard of Cindy’s book but didn’t know what it was about. Love your forthright reviews, Ritu. The way you said that it needs editing and you didn’t like the ending will surely make Cindy to keep a note next time.

    This book has been on my list for the longest time. I have fallen back on my reading with too much work and an eye issue which has cut down my digital time drastically. Want to read this one. Thanks for the lovely review.

      I hope you are doing better now. I can completely relate with falling back on reading due to work. Audiobooks during the morning walks are often the only time I get to read.
