So, I have began my new year by reading this romantic novella by author, Rohan Jain. It is a classic romantic tale of two people who fall in love in the most unexpected circumstances in every way possible. They are faced with the ultimate question of how to confess their love for each other. Raj (Indian) and Sophia (German) are two students who meet in a foreign country with different cultural backgrounds but with their hearts beating for each other, irrespective of everything else. The characters are very nicely drawn and depict the kind of problems one is bound to face when people from two different cultural backgrounds meet. But all the differences become too small in front of the all-encompassing emotion called LOVE.
Second thing I liked the most about this novel is its vivacity. I have always loved reading novels with vivid descriptions; the kind of novels which stimulate my imagination and this book is sure one of them. When the protagonist, Raj, visits Switzerland, as a part of his internship program, the reader walks with him and enjoys the scenic beauty of this country. The description is so beautifully penned that you would want to pack your bags super quick and book a ticket to Switzerland.
Thus, I would sum up this book being a good one-time read. It provides you with the opportunity to experience the pangs of love along with journey of Switzerland. The plot is pretty predictable but still enjoyable.
Rating – 3/5
