Book Review: My Mute Girlfriend

In most of the love stories or romantic movies, the female protagonist is shown as an outspoken girl who loves life and speaks a lot. However, the title of this book suggests something else about the story. It instantly makes the readers inquisitive that why the girlfriend is referred as mute. Is it a medical condition or something else is there in the love story?

The story is a typical old-school romance. It is based on the times when mobile phones were not popular in the market. People had to go to Public Telephone Booths to speak to their loved ones. The protagonist Rohan is an engineering student. At the beginning of the story, he is confused whether he is in love with his school junior Navya or with his college classmate Vaidehi. With the passage of time and with the help of his sister, Rohan finds out who he is actually in love with. The love story proceeds (to know with whom, you have to read the story) and the things seemed to go well. But they turned weird suddenly and the girl stopped talking to Rohan. The reason behind this change in this attitude is revealed 5 years later in the story which shocked everyone. This is not just a story of love but is a story of friendship too. It highlights how true friendship used to be and what roles the friends of Rohan played in his life. Like every love story, this story would not have been possible without friends.

The cover seemed dull to me. The cover is just like a regular love story. With some innovation, it could have been better. The title is okay for the story. The plot is a strong one but the narration brought it down. The characters have not been described very well and it seemed that the background has been described more than the characters. Some of the descriptions seemed unnecessary and made the pace of the story a slow one at times.

No doubt it is an emotional story and you will feel sad in the end.
