Book Review: Letters to My Ex

There are love stories and there are breakup stories. If I have to choose between one of them for reading then I would choose a story that revolves around breakup. The reason is simply that these stories are closer to reality unlike most of the love stories that are bound to take you into a dreamy world. They even give a touch of those romantic movies and are predictable most of the times. Glad I found this book and it was much different from what I expected.

The story revolves around Abhay and Nidhi who fell in love with each other during their college days. They were opposite yet similar and once they convinced their families, they were about to get engaged. However, there was a twist in the tale which made Nidhi walk out of Abhay’s life on the day they were supposed to get engaged. And then Nidhi starts writing these emotional letters. However, she could not send them to him. Rather, Abhay sends the first letter and the things move further. There are numerous twists and turns in the story and it ends with a beautiful Epilogue. You will have to read the book to find it out.

Aarohy Kapoor, Review

The cover is beautiful and I fell in love with the cover from the day it was released. The plot is a regular one. The exes talking to each other again after their break up and then the events happening is a common story. The idea of putting it into the form of letters was a different concept. The narration was a good one but in a few chapters, I felt that the narration was slow and confusing. The things revolved around just one idea but later felt that all that confused narration was necessary to build up the story well. The title is undoubtedly perfect and matches well with the cover and the story.

Overall, it was a good read! Recommended to the ones who love a bit of romance in the tale!

Title- 5 / 5

Narration- 3 / 5

Plot- 3 / 5

Cover- 5 / 5

Overall- 4 / 5
