Story in a nutshell:
All love stories, most of the times, begin with friendship. Similar was the case wirh Zed and Kanishka. They meet during their childhood and stay friends until adulthood only to realise that they love each other. It is usually seen that you do not value a person or a thing until the day you feel it's going away from you. You begin to show your care when you know it's slipping off your hand.

My Complicated Destiny is an emotional tale of love. The story is about Zed and Kanishka who are in love with each other. They decide to pursue their careers and therefore, move on with their lives. While Zed makes the most of his life, life for Kanishka becomes difficult. The story talks about true love and the difficulties it faces. It talks about long distance relationships. I wouldn't say that the story is a unique one. It is one of its kind. It is simple and adorable.
The characters - Kanishka and Zed seem matured enough for their age. The relationship that they share is sweet. You will surely desire a relationship like theirs. There is so much understanding between the two. The story has been narrated in Zed's as well as Kanishka's point of view. The simple language and simple narration makes this book a very sweet read. There are many 'aww' and 'tsuk' moments in this novel. It will make you happy as well as sad. You are sure to get teary eyed towards the end.
This book could have been made better by narrating the story more creatively and editing it well. Overall, it was a good one-time read.
