You Are The Best Wife: A Book Review


Hi, Folks,

Being a book reviewer is a tough job. Really, trust me. While, I was reading a book last night that I need to review, my friend from other side of the world asks what is keeping me awake. Ha, books I tell you. Guess what? I made a pact to read 100 books this year & review a 100. If you guess, it’s gonna be easy, nope, because the ones I review will purely be professional, read & reviewed for the blog. Ah 200 books… Too many sleepless nights! What I have today is this:

Book Blurb:
This is a true inspiring story of the author and his struggle with life. He struggled in almost every part of his life, but when his life seemed to be falling in place, his beloved wife left him halfway and her last word, ‘You are the best husband’ gave him the strength to live with. He decided to pull off all her unaccomplished duties and made it a target to thrive for the rest of his life.

Told with frankness and doses of humor this heartwarming tale of a boy and a girl who never gave up on their love in face of the many blows that life deals them ends on a bittersweet and poignant note as Ajay comes to terms with the biggest lesson life has to offer.

‘You are best wife’ is Author’s story—a story of how he lost his wife, his nerve-wracking and unimaginably terrifying journey through denial, resentment, and depression to, finally, acceptance and forgiveness.

Stri’s Take On It:
It’s been so long I got to read a real story written as fiction. 3-4 years back we had 2 States, I too had a love story, and the likes. Now, this book falls under the same genre. The first half of the book deals with how two people fell in love, fought struggles, resolved issues, and got married. The second half goes on a melodramatic ride where when everything looks perfect, the wife dies.

This is on the lines of “True Love Never Dies,” and stuff. While, this book is definitely of a romantic, touchy genre, it has loads of melodrama, which might not be everyone’s cup of tea.

Wows:
1. It was a light & quick read. Despite the tragic end, the narration keeps the book a light read.
2. There is quite some humor all along that makes the book a good, breezy read.
3. One can correlate to the story & feel moved.
4. The story us kept in a crisp & good manner.

Oops:
1. Way too much melodrama: This is from real life, I know, still the boom was too melodramatic and sweet that it will give fairytale a run for its money.

Do I recommend? For romantic genre lovers, Yes!

Rating: 3.5/5

      It’s definitely a sad take, but the author gave a very optimistic view to the book. Also, the ending is revealed in the blurb itself, so it’s more about emotions than suspense in this novel.
