Because maybe, The Reason Is You.
19 February 2019
Narrated from a male's perspective, this book explores the world of depression through a character Akriti and of Siddhant's journey in dealing with the person affected by this disease and the disease itself.
It's an interesting story, engaging, rightly paced and beautifully articulated in lovely prose.
I honestly think the writer did justice to the character Akriti because the incidents she made it happen evoke all kinds of feelings you needed to feel; annoyance, disgust, anger, sympathy, understanding, compassion, and acceptance. The feelings you'd have felt had it been a real-life situation you were a part of.
There were moments like 'What the, what the actual fl*wer!, Finally! , Finally! 2.0, Hahaha, Can we bury this person already?, Okay, I officially hate white rose now' moments and I enjoyed the book.
