Blurb (as behind the book)
It’s heart-breaking, finding the right person at the wrong time.
And worse? Meeting the wrong person when the time is right.
Aditi Narang is an obvious beauty. With her charming personality and magical aura, she steals hearts without much ado. When she professes her love to Shyam, he says ‘No’.
Padma Lakshmi is an average girl, who goes about her life like a routine. There is nothing distinctly remarkable about her, which repels Shyam. But when proposed to marry her, he says ‘Yes’.
Shyam appears quite sorted, well-settled and practical in the way he goes about life, and is the eligible bachelor that any girl would be lucky to marry.
In a fierce battle between his mind and heart, tossing insecurities and juggling fears, Shyam wrongs both the women. But why would he do that?
Socha Bhi Na Tha is a fast-paced, gripping story of love in various hues, extraordinary circumstances, thrilling emotions, and unheard of drama. It leaves us wondering, was it his sanity that prevailed, or his insanity that triumphed?
- Simple cover which is not very attractive.
- Since the story is in English, I think the title too could have been in the same language.
- Extremely simple plot.
- No twists.
- Predictable sequence of events.
- Lucid language.
- Character development of Shyam is good.
- Narration is good but could have been bettered with less haphazard- ness.
- Slow flow.
- Good vocabulary.
