My Review:-

The title has been chosen so wisely. It carries a meaning itself. After reading the title readers can get an idea what is going to be happened inside the book. It defines the book contains a love story and the story centres a lady beloved who is silent. The title has its own charm to attract readers.

On the other hand, the cover of this book is so colourful. In cover, there are two portions – one portion shows an image focusing two lovers and other one portion shows a boat floating in the river.

After analysing the cover and the title one can easily understand it must be a love story inside the book. The cover has been made keeping similarity to the title. The blurb portion has been written and edited well. If readers read the blurb they can realize what things are going to be happened inside the book. The blurb potion is short but enough to make people understand about the theme.

The story has been plotted well. All characters have been characterized well. The content has been narrated and edited well. The story that is contained by this book can bring tears in reader’s eyes. It is heart touchable. The story contains a beautiful message to all lovers. If you want to know the message you should read this book for once. The author has used lucid language to narrate the story and characterize all characters so that  one can understand the story very well. It is perfect story for making a Bollywood movie. The title is also awesome to get attention in case of film.

Overall Ratings – 5/5
