Sometimes you need some light reads to freshen up your mind and A Walk In The Rain is one such book. The author has done a good job of telling a simple tale in an interesting manner with some thrilling twists. The book takes you on a roller coaster ride of intense emotions, and plot twists. It’s a tale of love, and retribution.
Surya, or Sunny as he is known to his friends, is a system programmer. He doesn’t socialise much, a lingering effect of an indifferent father and secluded childhood. But the few friends he has, he cherishes. Saloni is a prostitute forced into the job by circumstances and the greed of others. When fate brings Saloni and Sunny together, they witness the murder of Sunny’s close friend. As Sunny sets off to avenge his friend’s death, he enlists the help of Saloni who agrees but asks for money in exchange. The two set off to catch the murderer.
The characters are well-developed, diverse and likable. The narration style of the author is fresh easy to read though at some places I found it to be a bit dragging. The story is intriguing and the pace is good. The cover of the book is simple, nothing very impressive but I liked its title. Overall the book is a light read and interesting.
If you like romantic thrillers and are looking to read a light romantic and entertaining read, then you must go for this one. A walk in the rain is a journey of Sunny and Saloni, but as you read, you will also literally join them in the adventure.
** I received a review copy of the book in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. **
Saloni and Sunny are the protagonists of the novel. Sunny is a bitter, misogynistic man who hates the world. Even when he needs Saloni’s help, he can’t bring himself to trust her. Life has been hard on Saloni. In spite of her desperate straits, she manages to hold on to her small shred of self-respect. It is hard for Sunny to trust on someone as he had taken so much.
Over all the narration is simple. The characters are developed well, so are the back stories of the characters. Nevertheless, in most of the areas, professionalism was missing. For a YA romance, hard-core professionalism cannot be expected, nevertheless, a little more hard work ought to be invested to make the book worth the price.
The relation of Sunny with Sandy, Imran and Saloni dvelves in different layers of psyche. Love, friendship, enmity,vendetta- Sunny's character is an emotionally multilayered creation.
The book cover is in sink with the narration and overall storyline, so is the title. An aggression felt for the downtrodden mass of people was evident in the narration but thorough homework was required. Lack of editing was evident in the book.
