This is perhaps what we think of when we go through a ‘breakup’.
This story is about Anirudh and Anvi.
Both of them have their own thinking which are not alike.
The story begins with Anirudh meeting with and accident. As he slowly succumbs to the pain, he starts reflecting about his bygone college days where he found his love for music. He loves Anvi dearly who is a long-lost friend of Anirudh.
The story reveals how Anirudh struggles as the hands of reality strikes him down.
I would like to thank Author’s Assistant Team for the review copy. My review here is totally unbiased and honest.
This book ultimately took back to my good old college memories. I was refreshed and lightened when I completed this novel.
I kind of thought that this novel could an inspiration to this generation. Whatever failure we come across , that shouldn’t affect the daily life. Life is to move on as the title indicate “Learning to Let GO”. The aspiration and dream should not be disturbed at any cost. Anyone and especially this generation could relate themselves with this story.
The narration was simple and tasteful. The book is like 244 pages but I was able to finish it off real soon as the author has written this as a part of life experience. Author didn’t involve the love portions in every chapter of Anirudh life and made it as only a part. That was the main positive aspect of this book. So this one stood out from the regular and same kind of romance novels.
The only odd I felt while reading is that I could only see Anirudh throughout the book and the other characters involvement was way too less. Entire narration was with Anirudh point of view. At times I felt bored or I felt to read another character POV as distraction. Here and there few ,very few editing issues.
Overall “My First Breakup ” is simple and exquisite novel which brings out the romance delicately with the reality and we will end up reading it without any struggle.
