#BookReview: A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

Image result for a man called ove




A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman is a very heartwarming read published on 7th May 2015 by Spectre. It is widely available at the online and offline bookstores. The cover page of the book is attractive and very simple having an image of a leaning man and the title is in blue and red colours and the background in subtle yellow colour.


The story revolves around a fifty-nine year old man called Ove. He's a curmudgeon, the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him the bitter neighbor from hell, but must Ove be bitter just because he doesn't walk around with a smile plastered to his face all the time?
Behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. So when one November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove's mailbox, it is the lead-in to a comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul. All of which will change one cranky old man and a local residents' association to their very foundations. 



It is a very heartwarming book written in a very easy and simple way.The emotions are expressed very nicely and are sudden . At one point one laughs and in other cries. The book is filled with sarcasm, humor, fun and laughter. The story goes on in present and past. All the characters are very well built especially the relation between Sonja and Ove. The story just flows like milk and a lot of scenes can be visualized. A reader feels that he is a part of the story.   A very soberness in the narration of each event. A lot of lines are very heart touching and the display of true love is marvelous. Overall, a very heartwarming, hilarious, amazing and an adorable read. 
I would recommend this book to everyone as each one of us wants an Ove in our lives. A must read .

Few beautiful quotes

“People said Ove saw the world in black and white. But she was color. All the color he had.” 

“He went through life with his hands firmly shoved into his pockets. She danced.”

“Ove had never been asked how he lived before he met her. But if anyone had asked him, he would have answered that he didn’t.”

#BookReview : True Liars by Isha Inamdar






"She wasn't true, but was her love a lie."


True Liars is the debut book by author Isha Inamdar. The book was published on 10 May 2017 by Harlequin India and is available in paperback as well as in Kindle Format at the online and offline bookstores. The cover page of the book is very attractive having an image of a girl with a flying blindfold. The colours used in the cover are very apt such as red, gold and black, making it very catchy to the eyes.



The book revolves around aspiring deejay NJ - Anjana who lives in Mumbai with her best friend Harsh and his boyfriend Sam. When Harsh has to go to Phalodi, his hometown in Rajasthan, for his sister’s wedding, he convinces NJ to tag along, posing as his girlfriend to avoid being set up with any potential brides. At the wedding, though, she meets Rudra, Harsh's elder brother, and the two are powerfully attracted to each other. One thing leads to another and they kiss, only to break away bitterly. But NJ will not let Harsh's secret out. So, what happens will NJ and Rudra be together?


The story is written in a very simple and in a very beautiful manner. The language is easy to understand and is like flowing. The author has an awesome command over the language. The narration of the story is in third person which makes the story very realistic. A reader can easily visualize and connect to various instances. The characters of the story are very well developed and all of them have a past or a mystery. The relation between the siblings is nicely shown. The portrayal of the emotions is marvelous making the reader feel them deeply. The leap is shown very well in the story. The story line is fast paced making the reader stick to it till the end. The title is very unusual but is totally justified. 
Overall, an amazing and a passionate love story having elements of love, trust and friendship.
I would highly recommend this book to those who really want to read a desi love story.
