My Review: Let’s see, how the story goes in my perception, in the following points-
Title and book cover: Both are too good, they make a good combination with each other. The title of the story suits very well to the story and you’ll feel the worth of the title at the very end of the story.
Character development: Character are developed very nicely. I like the choice of Divyesh with the names of characters. Though Siddharth is a common name nowadays, but Shama, Ravin, Shardul, Padmini, these are the very rare and cute names. Siddharth’s character is the best creation of Divyesh. He’s a weird kind of boy, unable to understood by Shama and also by the readers, but the most lovable character at the end as because of him love been weird. I wish I could love chemistry as much as Siddharth loves it, but I’m happy I love maths 😅. Shama played her role very well as the leading female character of the story. She seems to take all the advantages of her beauty. I felt that Ravin’s character could be developed a lil more. I wanted him to be a lil possessive about Shama. Rest all the characters are good too.
Conversation: It’s the soul of the book. And Divyesh wrote very good conversations. I liked the teasing one.
Plot: Plot is quick, interesting. Though there was not any serious and big accident as the center of the story, but all the lil-lil incidents entertain the readers very well. There was a full semester in the book. Starting is beautiful, middle is interesting and entertaining and the ending is just heart touching. Totally unpredictable story. Students will like the story very much. And it will leave a long impact on readers mind.
Background: Today’s age is in the background, which makes the story a must read. There is no description of any special city there as the story revolves around the department of chemistry of a college.
Language and Narration: Language is smooth and narration style is perfect. The amazing part was that the whole story is written in Shama’s perception. That’s a very rare thing to be done by a male author and Divyesh did it very well.
Backlog: I found some/many grammatical/editing mistakes, which disappointed me.
Conclusion: A very new taste of love can be seen in the story. A worth read book.
