Everyone has a story.
Meera, a fledgling writer who is in search of a story that can touch millions of lives.
Vivaan, assistant branch manager at Citibank, who dreams of travelling the world.
Kabir, a café manager who desires something of his own. Nisha, the despondent café customer who keeps secrets of her own.
Everyone has their own story, but what happens when these four lives are woven together?
Pull up a chair in Kafe Kabir and watch them explore friendship and love, writing their own pages of life from the cosy café to the ends of the world.


My Review


If being prejudisric is a crime, I am a criminal. I had prejudices about how a romantic story by Indian author would be.
A story with a difference. Extraordinarily ordinary. 
The book which acclaimed by thousands of readers made my expectations sky high. The first few chapters let's the readers see the literary finesse of the author. The bit written by Meera on the traveller is beautiful and engrossing. Characters are all well crafted and unique.

The narration is alternating between first person narration of Meera and Vivaan. Every chapter is concise and short. More elaboration on each chapters would have given the author unending possibilities to showcase her talent.

Presumably to increase the page count, the switch in narration is divided into different parts with blank pages in between. While involved in the story, this might be frustrating for the readers. Somewhere towards the end, the old formula was reused. The cliche took the cherry off the cake.
Reviewed for the publisher
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book as a complimentary copy in exchange for a honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
