Book Review

I would like thank WritersMelon for the review copy. My review here is totally unbiased and honest.

My first utmost thought after finishing off  the book is ” THIS BOOK IS SO SO PROFESSIONAL  AND RICH IN ETHICAL WELL BEING”

Characters were just SPELLBOUND,UNIQUE and SMART.

Narration was unusual ,It was like the salt in a dish. It was at the right proposition and was really YUMMY TO READ.

Romance was way more less than expected but still it didn’t hold back the charm of the romance and had its own way.

After a long time I am reading a book with boy-girl friendship(Nihaal and Reeva) which was beautifully put on throughout the book.

Political manifesto was organized and handled so effectively that I thought I am actually seeing a real political meet while reading those. With the blurb I was expecting a full fledged political affair but as pages moved on it totally turned out to be good thriller. There was a surprise element at every chapter,where it could be small or big.

Well all women characters in this book are independent and bold. They were emotionally made weak but still they rose up quickly. There were dirty politics going on all around the story and author didn’t even touch the area of foul language at any page. That’s why I said this is so rich in vocabulary and narration. The end was unpredictable and edgy towards  the finish.  This book had its foot on all the genre and made it to be an interesting read.

Overall “Trust me not”is a fast paced political affair with ample of twist and doubts which grips the story with the rigid plot and fantabulous narration.
