Review: You are my Best Wife

Author: Ajay K. Pandey

You are the Best Wife: A True Love Story

Book Blurb:

Ajay believes in living for himself; Bhavna teaches him to live for others. Ajay is a planner for life; Bhavna makes him live in every moment. You are the Best Wife is a story of two people with contradictory ideologies who fall in love. It changes them for good. It changes the way they look at the world and the way the world looks at them. Until destiny reveals its plans. This is a true inspiring story of the author and his struggle with life, after his beloved wife left him halfway through their journey. But her last words, ‘you are the best husband’ gave him the strength to live on, and fulfil his promise of love. Told with frankness and doses of humor, this heart-warming tale of a boy and a girl who never gave up on their love in face of adversities, ends on a bittersweet and poignant note as Ajay comes to terms with the biggest lesson life has to offer.

My Review:

This is a book that is written by the Author to celebrate his love for his wife. While my heart goes out to the author and for all that he has gone through, I feel that this book lacks on the story telling skills.

The language was too simplistic, with grammatical errors, for a reader to actually invest in the book.

While the second half of the book was good, I am not sure if it was worth to plod to the “oh-so-typical” first half of the book. We have all read, countless times about the engineering guy who goes to a hostel and falls for a girl. Also, the caste issues, while very relevant, have been seen in so many books now, it becomes hard to figure out which book had what characters.

This is a book that the author can give to his friends and relatives, who know the characters mentioned. But, in order to make it in the world of books, I feel it needs a bit more polishing and work on it.
