Book Review: Meant to be Together, by Faraaz Kazi

I’m not a big fan of romance genre but I had liked the author’s earlier work, so picked this up to read.

The book follows the story of Preeti who has moved to the city after getting a job. She has also recently lost her biggest support system — her brother and is struggling to cope with the loss. At such a time, an unexpected knock on the door brings a surprise into her life that ends up changing it in ways just as unexpected.

The author succeeds in showing Preeti’s state of mind by flashback through her journal entries. Her pain is palpable, having been through a lot. The reactions to the lows of her journey are realistic and believable. And Sameer’s arrival (and the gang’s too) into her life is at the right time. The narration is simple, and many moments in the novel do bring a smile.

On the flipside, the story flow is kind of predictable. I won’t say I could know exactly what would happen next but I could guess correctly on a few occasions. With the cover and title, I think most readers of the genre know the ending. Not necessarily a deterring factor to picking up the book of course.

Although I did enjoy reading the story, I think those who love to read love stories a lot might love this book more than I did. 3.5★

Poetry and writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
