Me 'n' Her A Strange Feeling by Rikky Bhartia: a review

This book is special. Not in any other sense, but just because I had to leave all others and read this one in Public Demand. So, with due respect to all of them, here it is-

On the back cover- Love..Life.. Separation? Love- implies three words- smiles, tears, and endings. Endings are not always happy... Yet they leave a mark in our lives in some way. Me 'n' her- a strange feeling is an involving and intriguing love story of two people, of strangers, whose paths cross and lead to strange feelings, later discovered as love. Harsh is passionate and ambitious, but forgets his ambition when he meets Janvi. Janvi...loves to dream, but is lost in life...reasons unknown, at the height of their celebration...a strange twist in life happens,that changes everything is what brings them close...and love is what...separates them. Does love change with time? Is it possible to fall in love repeatedly with the same person? Harsh and Janvi give you every answer...their love story will remind of your first love... Its unexpected ending will bring tears and smiles...

"The story of love n separation, where destiny dictates the relation"- the tagline of the book suits the book and its content to the fullest.the story of Harsh n Janvi can be the story of any two people but the twists and turns of the story males it unique.

According to me, the climax, the twists and turns of the book added to the oomph factor of the book. Yes, the shaeri's used in the book were also well written and to the non-Hindi knowing people, the glossary is of a real help.
the book is one of its kind with sketches along with the story, but still, there are a few things which I felt as drawbacks of the book.

one- the sketches were apt but could've done in a better way. Two- atleast there should've been an intimation that there isa glossary because the people wont understand there is a glossary when they finish the book. There were a few avoidable grammatical errors.

in a few places I felt that the situations, writing wise, has been far too stretched. The intimating of a sequel coming up worked for the USP of the book. But yes, this book has shown what a debut book should be.

 A one time yet engaging read. I am sure the writer would correct his flaws in the next book.
eagerly waiting for the sequel, I would rate it 4. Out of 5.
