BOOK REVIEW-‘A WILD ROSE: LOVE BLOSSOMS UNTIL THE THORNS PRICK’ BY UZMA JAFRI

Book Review-‘A Wild Rose: Love Blossoms Until the Thorns Prick’ by Uzma Jafri

“AN INTERESTING AND WELL EXPRESSIVE STORY ABOUT BETRAYAL, LOVE, REVENGE AND SACRIFICE … THIS IS A NOVEL BY UZMA JAFRI …”

The story moves around Ritu Anand and her life that has been blemished by a brutal divorce and a counterfeit commitment, that pushes her into her own cocoon of thoughts, All this takes  a toll on her life and makes her go away from love and commitment. She used to be a successful news anchor with one of the well known and established agency in her past but the tragedy in her life takes it all away from her. She joins DAG after 2 years of isolation which works as whiffs of fresh air in her life. There she meets Anshuman Sinha, with the first look itself she goes crazy for him. As the days pass in DAG at a relaxed speed so do Ritu and Ashuman start getting close to each other. Eventually all this ends up in a serious relationship. This helps Ritu to overcome her past, although her best friend Sumbul doesn't approves of it and keeps warning her about Anshuman. To which Ritu turns her deaf ears as she is completely blind in Anshuman's love. But there is more to Anshuman than which is shown. The detailed description of Ritu’s past painful memories and friendship between Ritu and Sumbul is something that does play on your emotions in the story. Anshuman’s character creates inquisitiveness in the minds of the reader while Ritu is all charm. Sumbul’s careful, alert and aware nature is also something which can't be ignored. The shayari mentioned in the book goes hand in hand with the concept of the story. The story leaves an impact on the readers mind in the end. The reader wonders if it will be possible for Ritu to see the hidden or real side of Anshuman or will it be too late to realise his undiscovered side. Will her love for him keep their relationship going? To unfold the same you need to read this book.

Now my Positive viewpoints:

The concept is good, the twist and turn in the story is enthralling. The authoress has narrated the story well as it keep readers look forward to what will be next.

Some suggestive points:

Overall the book is really good and very well expressed. The only drawback what I feel is at some places the character of Ritu has been portrayed to be very weak, especially when, it is mentioned that she is today’s working independent girl. Some places she is seen so helpless that she can’t even take a stand of her own. (Just an opinion, others might not agree with me.)

Final words:

Overall if asked I would say...this is a good work done by Authoress… (Uzma Jafri) I would give 2.5 stars to this book.
