 BOOK REVIEW- “Red is for Love, Black is for Kohl” by Priyanka Bhardwaj”

 very interesting story, explaining relationships, discovering some new bold aspects of friends, friendship and true love in today’s world while achieving dreams, ones dreams...

 The story is about love, relationships, friends, friendship and championship. Indeed it is true nothing is perfect in life, neither our life nor we ourselves. Whatever happens good or bad, it happens for a reason. Some things leave you happy and some leave you distressed. This story is one such about life and it is been pen down perfectly.

 The story revolves around Naina Shergil, a literature student at the University of Delhi, who is headstrong, super-smart, ambitious, and like many others of her age, juggling in so many college activities with her search of the perfect love. Her life is centred on friends, family and other acquaintances. Her bland spell of a boyfriend-less routine, is suddenly broken when she bumps into a hot young designer who twists her world sideways. Their relationship was not destined for sweetness and turn out to be just another cruel joke.

 However, her bold and never die attitude helps her getting along with many and getting over her past. Her equation with many change and then life takes a drastic turn and in comes Aarian Mehra to fill up the void left by some people in her life. From there on, its tiff between her mind and her thoughts and actions as all of them scuffle to overpower her completely.

Where will life take Naina? What role Aarian will play in her life? Will she be able to get some clarity? This is what the story is all about. It’s worth mentioning how writer has written those tear jerking portions. They seem so real and so emotional. I won’t say much about those chapters as I don’t want to spoil it for the readers but I just loved the way the book ended. It was a perfect climax for me.
 The climax was quite interesting with twists and turns to unfold the same you need to read this book.

 Now my Positive viewpoints:

 The concept of the story is really nice and absorbing. This is a good work done by the author for writing such a striking work of fiction. The poems composed in the book are deep and meaningful. The authenticity of the whole setup leaves a good impression while reading the book. Even the climax of the story has been scripted well. Overall, the book is highly recommended by me to all those who craves for romance fictions to pass their time on any given weekend. It will make you smile, it will make you laugh and it will make you cry. But most of all, it will brew that romantic feeling that will make you fall in love with your loved ones all over again.

 Some suggestive points:

 Overall the book is good and very well expressed. The twist in the climax seems more of a turnout from a filmy situation. Also, the slowness in the middle of the story at some places makes you lose interest. A little bit of emphasis on kohl could have been cut down to make it look more appealing.  

 Final words:

 Overall if asked I would say...this is an excellent job done by Author (Priyanka Bhardwaj) … I would give 4 stars to this book.
