My Views: “You are the best thing that happened to Me” is a title very romantic. Book cover is attractive enough. Such a scene can be read in the book. After reading the prologue, I felt, any book should start like this. I like the way author gave different title for every chapter. He even mentioned dates, which made the book more realistic. It’s basically a love story and like every love story, there are many sweet scenes. Sushil and Anjali are the leads of the story. Aashish being Sushil’s best friend played his role well. Determination and caring can be learnt from Sushil, where Anjali teaches to be happy. A person, starts doing mad things when he/she falls in love, Sushil does the same and that author penned beautifully. Story goes with the flow. All the scenes are necessary happenings.
Some drawbacks are there…
Some scenes are there which needed to be mentioned.
There are some scenes
which contradict each other. I’ll not enclose the story. Some hindi dialogues need polishing.
Sushil was the elder son, there must be some scenes with his siblings in the book, but there is no mention of them or the mention came way too late and way too little.
Anjali fell for Sushil way too easily, she should have taken some more time.
I didn’t like the ending so much as it seems incomplete, but I can wait for the sequence of the book.

Overall an average book, will not let you bore.

Conclusion: Love makes you do stupid things… Read all the stupidity in the book.

Star Rating: 3/5
