The Closure-Journey to My True Self is a story of Aarti who is Married to Rishabh balances her personal and professional life well. But a relationship without love lasts no longer. Aarti decides to learn Guitar where she meets Sahil. Love has No age. She never knew when she was in love with Sahil. Will Aarti leave everything? her family, career for Sahil? What will be her next step? This story is like a complete Bollywood movie.
The book starts in an interesting way. The plot of the story is engaging, full of Drama. The narration of the story good, but at some places, the story is dragged. The pace of the story is slow. unrequired details make it a boring read. One can easily relate to the story. After few chapters, it starts getting dull.
The language used by the author is simple and easy. The writing style of the author is lucid and gripping. The dialogues keep the reader hooked in the story till some point. Themes like Love, relationship, friendship, jealousy are used by the author. The characters that the author made are strong. Each character had a story to tell. I loved how each character was developed in a crisp way.
The way all the events were sequenced again makes this a wonderful book.The author has beautifully portrayed each and every emotion. One can relate to the Aarti’s Journey.
It’s a good book with strong characters, wonderful theme but a slow read. It’s a light read but could have been much better.

Aarti slid back and started staring outside the window. It was not the first time she was getting married, but this time she was making the decision after a long haul of struggle.
Sahil: “I have no intention of being physical with you again, but this can be an accord of providing for each other as companions so that you can realize the aspects of your life that you deserve.”
Rishabh: “Maybe I needed her to go away from me before I could realize her importance. God! I miss her.”
Ansh: “You’re evil and the worst person, I’ve ever met. I’d like to think that you’re probably dead now A.. A..Ar… Aarti…”
It’s not a midlife, neither is it an existential, nor an identity crisis, but just a need, an urge deep-found in human wishes: an appeal for closure. That’s what the journey of Aarti is all about, from being a happily invested mother-cum-housewife to a fulfilled, self-aware human being.
