BLURB as on Goodreads

We become overtly colorless when our hearts aren’t together; only when a soul finds its body, they sing and dance together to the colors of life.

Three closely-knit people, Karma, Diana & Ghazal meet at the crossroads of life, unaware of the cosmic conspiracy and its comical destiny. The heart is their road, love is their journey and the soul, the final destination. Sailing on the tides of emotions, they encounter deceit, with a tinge of poison and drop of bliss.

Forever love; it is a myth? Or a reality? Is it stifling pain or undying love, that makes love eternal? Come, let us explore!

My Review

Love is beautiful – something that you shouldn’t question, reason, tamper – it is surreal. To be in love is blissful and to love, my dear, is divine.

A Drop of You by Krishna Chhetri is a romantic fiction revolving around three characters who symbolize love, heart, and soul. Dipped in the melody and melancholy of love, the book appeals to its readers with its abundance of poetry and shayaris. I liked the spread of philosophy in the second half of the book that evoked my dormant emotions and made me realize the importance of holding on to something. The book echoes the complex web of love, longing, jealousy, ecstasy, and friendship.

Although my recent romance reads disappointed me, I went ahead with this book with no bias and prejudice. Right from the beginning, the setting of the story wasn’t very clear to me and on top of that, the overindulgence of the characters in love made me feel detached. But almost halfway through the book, I got immersed in the atmosphere created in the book. I enjoyed reading the book as it tells what it is to love someone. The book contains the words of Rumi and Kahlil Gibran. Oh! It was a pleasure to read them. The author has done a good job of interspersing love with the bits of philosophy. What I didn’t like was the fragility of the plotline which is evident throughout the book. Only words and lyrical writing could not be the pillars of the book, it needs a strong story as well which was missing here. Nevertheless, go for it if you wish to involve in romantic stories painted with love and grief.

MY RATING: 3/ 5
