About the Book:
We become overtly colourless when our hearts aren’t together; only when a soul finds its body, they sing and dance together to the colours of life.
Three closely knit people, Karma, Diana & Ghazal meet at the crossroads of life, unaware of the cosmic conspiracy and its comical destiny. Heart is their road, love is their journey and the soul, the final destination. Sailing on the tides of emotions, they encounter deceit, with a tinge of poison and drop of bliss.
Forever love; it is a myth? Or a reality? Is it stifling pain or undying love, that makes love eternal? Come, let us explore!
About the Author:
Krishna Chhetri stumbled into writing and eventually fell in love with it. Oscar Wilde had once said, “To define is to limit”. That is how Krishna sees life. A Drop of You is his debut novel. He lives in Noida.
My take on the Book:
I picked this book without reading the blurb of it like I do most of the times and I thought it’s a typical romantic novel. What surprised me was the poems and shayaris that were hidden inside. The story is about love, soul, heart and society in a nutshell! It was a completely new and refreshing read to me. I really liked the story but I’m not a big fan of the narrative because it was completely bland and I was struggling to get connected to the characters.
It felt like they were too into themselves and also over the top clichéd words like ‘oh my beloved love’ & ‘ahha’ were a bit irritating! It didn’t feel like I was reading a story but more like someone’s chat messages. Surely it has a message to all readers through love and philosophy and but it really failed to impress me because of its narration and the messed up characters. Nonetheless, I would give extra points to those poems and references to Rumi & Kahlil Gibran’s work in the narration! You can give it a try if your looking for some light romance novel.
