The title of the book 'The Jasmine Bloom' is a nice but doesn't give any hint about what the story is about.
Book Cover :
The book cover is simple. It just represents the book title with few jasmine flowers around.
The story line is quite different from the regular love stories or rom-coms but a relatable story for almost every matured and adult individual. The book mainly focuses on the middle age crisis generally men and women go through in their life. The feelings of love and lust that results in the damage of relationships is narrated in a commendable manner.
Little sexual encounters, coffee shop romance, office politics and relationship complexities are the main points that can be looked while reading. One interesting point is the names of the chapters though they don't really match the content but makes it interesting to read.
All the characters are good.
The narration is good .
Language and Vocabulary:
The language is good and rich at some places.
My Final Verdict—.
A onetime read. Nothing much to talk about.
Book title: 3/5
Book Cover: 3/5
Language and Vocabulary: 3/5
I personally rate the book 3 out of 5
the characters in the story are regular character who lives in our surroundings, whom we meet. this story is shows some bad side of our society like domestic violence
a struggling man, some sexual encounters etc. Sameer chadha is the character on the lead. and other character are kavita, sameer's wife, and ritu another character. everyone have their own issues and problems in life.
this story is completely based on the consequences which are going happen in their life when ritu's life collide with sameer and kavita.....just read the book gather experiences of our surroundings, society.
after reading you can feel that the writer has smartly plot the real life scenario into a fine story...enjoy the reading.
I liked the storyline which was good enough. The name of chapters were quite cheesy ( that's what I personally felt ) .The narration was good and the language was simple. A good balance of different emotions like lust, greed, struggle etc will make you finish the book in one go. The characters were very usual and I wish the author could have made them more engaging. But I really liked the way the female characters are put forward by the author ( my favourite being Ritu ) . The cover is good and the title also is fair enough but I didn't find much connectivity with the story .
Overall a simple nice read.
Sameer is a protagonist whom you’d love and hate at the same time. I felt he was a complex character which got carried away by the situations and the people around. Sometimes he is a man who doesn’t know what he is getting into and sometimes he knows what’s forbidden yet gets lured into it. He represents the unclear and adamant nature prevalent these days, where it is important to gain something; how it is done, doesn’t matter.
Ritu and Kavita are two women who are poles apart, but then they are so alike when it comes to their relationships and children. While Ritu manages to end her turmoil, Kavita (my personal opinion) ends as the quiet and wronged character. I felt she could have been written more about.
