Review:

I had heard about this book over social media. It was creating a lot of buzz. Readers were singing praises about this book. Soon, the author pinged me and asked me to review it. And here I am with my review.
The story seemed to be kind of predictable to me. The flow of the incidents have been uneven. Some run at leopard's pace while some are slower than the snail. There have been incidents where I was bored. Overall, the story was good. I had hoped for some major twists and turns but the ones that were presented seemed quite minor. The story has been narrated in first person and seemed to be done from heart. It felt like a diary account- simple, emotional and touchy. The characters made a place in my heart. There were moments when I dropped a tear. The book seemed to be like a Bollywood movie to  me. I felt realism to be missing. (I am being very frank.)

Likes:

  • Anya's and Nandani's relationship.
  • Anya and Arjun's undying love for each other.
  • Shiv and his one-sided love for Anya.
Dislikes:

  • The book needs editing. Proper editing will benefit it in long run.
  • I felt liked heavy words have been stuffed at places to make the narration better (I guess). But that ruined the entire thing. I could really make out that the were stuffed in.
  • I felt that the title and the story did not match each other well.
I rate:
Cover: 3/5.
Story: 2.5/5
Characters: 3/5

Overall, I rate 'The Dream Come True' with 2.5/5 stars.

You can book your copies on Amazon.
