Product Description

Akriti has led a pretty much sheltered life.
Zayn has been shuttled from city to city when he was growing up.
She is comfortable watching her life from the sidelines.
He wants to feel rooted to a place he can call ‘home’.
They meet each other quite by chance.
And both seize the chance to be someone they both need in their lives:
For Zayn, it’s a 'Partner-In-Crime'.
For Akriti, someone who just knows how to be there for her…
When their worlds collide,
It is not what either of them expected it to be.
Zayn has a steady girlfriend. And Akriti has a crush on him.
What happens these two become friends?
The biggest adventure of their lives? Or the road to heartbreak?
What happens when two completely different people collide?
Do they become friends? Or, is their friendship doomed from the start?
'When Our Worlds Collide' is the story of two twenty-three-year olds,
Who are finally growing up and finding their feet in the world.
A tale of friendship and love, crushes and betrayals, messes and second chances,
Marriage and divorce… and the elusive happily ever after!

About the Author

He is a person who holds his parents above all, especially his mother. All his dreams and aspirations are driven by one belief--that of making his parents proud.

His earlier works with the pen, in the form of 'Because…Every Raindrop is a HOPE' and 'When I Found You, I Found Myself' has resonated loudly with his readers. With his third book, 'Hackster' he has ventured into a new genre where his contemporary and provocative self, comes alive in a sci-fi thriller.

My Review

The story of Akriti is a unique refreshing treatment. Unlike the usual love stories, there are no special moments or overworked romance. This is a highly realistic story.

Highlights

The story is the first person narrative of Akriti. The writing style is unique and simple. The imagery in some scenes is commendable. The characters are crafted well. The relation of Akriti with her mother, father, stepmother, Ayoub, Zayn and Suzanna is rendered realistically. Not even at a single point did I feel any exaggeration.
As a reviewer, I used to detach myself from the story and characters but this book succeeded in attaching me to it. I liked the climax. I didn't just like it but I love it. There are no loose ends in the storyline. Instances come one after the other and are weaved tightly.

Drawbacks

Some of the dialogues lacked the depth intended. The introduction of some characters like Rithvik and Aryan were abrupt and without any build up, which made me wondering why this character was personally included. But for the story line their character was inevitable and hence a little more build up could have been better.
Apart from this I could not find much mistakes.

I have read this book 3 times already – all at different stages. It was in fact a pleasurable experience to see how ideas slowly take form of the final story that is out for everyone to read.

Akriti’s life has never been all fun and fairy tale like. From her parents’ broken relationship to friends betraying her secrets and confidence, she has had a tough time while growing up. And it has made her a tough person overall. Zayn on the other hand craves for the stability that his life hasn’t seen yet thanks to his parents moving in every two years or so. When Zayn and Akriti finally ‘meet’, Zayn is dating their mutual friend Nimmi. Can Akriti and Zayn be friends? Especially when Akriti harbors a secret crush on him?

The characters in the book are so awesome – each in their unique ways. I love Akriti, well for most parts… She has had a rough life and has always stepped up to the plate and done her duties well. She is one tough girl. Of course, I do not condone crushing so hard on someone else’s boyfriend, but then who has ever been able to control love and infatuations? Zayn is in many ways just the opposite of Akriti and as such he opens up a new world for Akriti. Then there is Ayoub – a character I thoroughly adored. He was always there for Akriti and that is a rare thing to find these days. He brought in some added humour to the storyline as well. There are a couple of additional characters that appear in the book and make a space in the readers’ mind for the duration.

It is however the plot that surprises the readers. It is not what you would normally expect yet it is what makes the most sense in the end. I loved the way the various relationships were handled and the dynamics of each was so different that they all stood strong.

“When Our Worlds Collide”… the title, plus the cover design would usually lead me to think that this is one of those romance novels that go the expected route. But the book, without a doubt, surprised me. “We will assure you by the end of this very different tale that it’s not always about the happy ending.” That was what the preface said, but the happily ever after does happen for the characters, just not in the way I expected after reading the title or looking at the cover.

Akriti’s life is not all roses. In fact, with the first glance into her life, I felt it might be only thorns. That first glance brought us into a scene where her parents are fighting. The girl she considers her best friend in school betrays her in a way she doesn’t expect, and the impending divorce pushes her more into the sheltered life. A short stint at a different school brought her a good friend, Nimmi, and an even shorter run-in with Zayn. We are introduced to Zayn earlier. His life, unlike Akriti’s, feels more nomadic. Years later, when Nimmi and Akriti meet again, Zayn is Nimmi’s boyfriend. And Akriti has a crush on him. Can a friendship between the two of them develop? Or will the heart win again?

What I expected was a romance novel, but this book was more of a YA fiction. The book is about friendship… between Nimmi and Akriti, between Akriti and Ayoub, between Esha, Gia and Ayoub… so many hues of friendship spread across it, and I liked that a lot. It’s about relationships, and the effect it has on life. It shows how the fight between parents affected little Akriti, and her relationship with her parents after that. It shows the extramarital relationship that her father had, and how love plays a part in relationships.

REVIEW:
A book that I am glad I picked up to read.
First Impression:
The aesthetic appeal of the cover was one of the first things I noticed about this book. The aptly worded title and the cover image drew me into the book.
Since this was a digital copy, my comments are limited to the kindle formatting and the typeset, which are smooth enough. I delved into the book before I had even fully read the blurb!
The story that wove its magic:
From page 1, the story had a strange magnetism.
'This is real life. Most stories when they begin, give you the feeling that it would end in 'and so they lived happily ever after'. But there are some stories ' sometimes much greater than epic love stories ' that touch you right in the heart; and stay with you forever.'
The story is simple in its elegance. It is the story of Akriti, narrated in first person. (Except the prologue ' that is something to watch out for!). Akriti is self effacing, afraid of change, and comfortable staying out of the limelight. Zayn, on the other hand, is used to being shunted from city to city due to his father's job, and they each have a chance meeting.
It is not exactly 'serendipity' because Akriti feels out of depth and realises that she has a crush on Zayn, a crush that literally 'crushes' her because she knows him only after being introduced as her ex classmate's boyfriend. Akriti faces a weird request from her friend, Nimmi, and this request changes her life's path in ways she could never foresee.
Pitted with each other, Zayn and Akriti develop a friendship when he asks her to be her partner in crime. Akriti finds in Zayn someone who understands her. He asks her to accompany him, and help him complete his bucket list.
