The book is well written and is written in a practical way. first I thought it would be same the flashback romance story but then It is completely different from the rest of the stories. The author has narrated the story with utmost honesty. The plot of the story is amazing and practical. I loved how Rohan got busy with his new schedule, how he got his new role model in Tanuj. How his life changed after Ira left. The pace of the story is good and is going.The flow is smooth. One can easily connect to the story. I loved how the story started. and the best thing I liked was, The story was narrated in present and not in the past. One can easily connect with every difficulty that Rohan faced, every emotion that Ira went through. The language used by the author is simple and interesting. The characters built by the author are strong and each one of them had their own importance. Be it Yusuf, Tanuj or Alisha. I loved Ira’s personality, though the author could have described Ira a little more.  The story is narrated well. Friendship, relationship, each and every relation is described well, be it mother and son, friends or a dog and his owner. everything. I loved the climax of the story.

Overall, simple language, Interesting plot, wonderful characters makes it an amazing read.
