'In search of a soulmate' - the title seems very mature and deep. I was carried away with the title and the book cover which is so attractive. The book cover gives you an overall idea about what the story would be. The blurb is interesting but is exceptionally lengthy. I believe a short and crisp blurb would have been much better. The blurb lets out details about the story which kind of, puts the reader off track.
Coming to the story, it starts with a marriage scene which then moves into past and then, drives in to present. The story is about Sandeep and his wife, Mansi. It is a story of their marriage. The childhood besties turned a couple during school days. Childhood is all about crushes and puppy love. Young girls and boys fail to understand love and end up hurting each other. Similar thing happens with Sandeep and Mansi. But destiny gives them another chance to be together.
The narration is in first person narrative, from Sandeep's point of view. The language is simple. The frank narration will make you feel that you're a part of the story. The flow of the incidents is smooth. The pace of the story, however, gets real fast at a few places. A few incidents seemed out of the place as well. But they didn't affect the overall reading experience.
The characters are many. Each character has a fair part to play. Their role in each other's lives and the way they stand for each other will envy you. You ask yourself whether such friendships exist in real world. The story of each character is a lesson in itself. You will feel sympathy and love for all the characters.
On the whole, In Search of a Soulmate will keep you engaged on to it. The emotions of the characters are portrayed very well. It is because of these emotions that this book will create a place in your heart.
I rate 'In search of a soulmate' with 3.5/5 stars.
