Reading books that detail the dynamics of human relationships is always a wonderful experience. A well-written story of such a kind makes a reader all the more satisfied. I read Til Death we do Part sometime last month but it’s only now that I decided to jot down my thoughts.
Til Death We Do Part by Bruno Beaches is a contemporary fiction that is dark and gripping yet easy to get into and amusing. It gets as real as possible to showcase the vagaries of a profession and marriage. Yes, marriage is no fun. There would be cloudy days of hardships. It is the ultimate truth. However, it is resilience and hope that shines through the narrative of this book.
The story starts with Pablo, an upright police officer, being falsely accused of misconduct and further humiliated. This goes on to cast a grave impact on his marriage with Delilah. The two go through a series of ups and downs before deciding to seal the fate of their relationship.
With a fair tinge of drama, Til Death we do Part fairs well on being an interesting story with even more interesting characters. I really liked the character sketches that are done very well to give an impact to the storyline.
Although I felt the story got a bit rushed right in the beginning, it does unfold gradually along the course of the book. The letters exchanged by the two protagonists had a depth profound enough to open us to newer dimensions of relationships. The going is not always smooth. It’s a bumpy ride after all.
Til Death we do Part might be simple, emotional, grimly painful with themes of loneliness and betrayal; yet it offers an insight into living life. The key is to let go of things, embrace uncertainties, love the change, and move on.
