Handwritten Letters in the Bookstore by Rimple Sanchla is a story of Rajvir. He stops at a bookstore and finds a handwritten note in a book. This letter leads him to a series of other similar letters, and finally, to the person who writes them.
The cover made me pick up this book. The title seems super interesting. What I was keen on were the handwritten letters and how the book is related to Music. As it is said to be the first musical novel. The author worked hard to make this book more interesting and appealing. I liked the concept of the book.
The book is engaging but The repetition makes it a bit boring and lengthy. The plot of the story is different and confusing. The narration of the story is good. At some point, the author has dragged the story which again made it a bit tedious. The language used by the author is simple and easy.
I loved the siblings bond that the author has portrayed in the story. It has Love, relationship, friendship, the drama that keeps the reader invested in. One can easily relate to the story. The climax of the story is commendable. I liked how the author tried to relate the story with songs.
What I loved most are the letters that Rajvir received. That’s what kept me hooked to the story and read it till the very end. The writing style of the author is Lucid. The characters that the author made are strong and amazing. Each character played a vital role in the story. I liked Rajvir’s character the most.
The pace of the story is slow with lots of unnecessary details. It’s a unique story but could have been much better.
A light read with lots of drama and Love. Love Music? Love romance? Do not miss this book.
