Book Review

The Different Bride by Charu Singh is a story of unadulterated love that transcends the barriers of norms to fulfil itself. It is a story of Chan and Prakash who come together despite differences. It would be interesting to see if their love does get its deserved happy ending.

Set in the early 2000s, The Different Bride by Charu Singh revolves around Chandrika and Prakash and their love in the times of no mobile phones! Chandrika has albinism that makes her an undesirable woman in the eyes of society. However, she is both ambitious and determined enough to not allow a setback to pull her back from moving ahead.

The story starts beautifully and goes on to include the tumultuous journey of an unusual love story. It covers finer aspects of society, family, and relationships very well. Although the storyline itself is simple and to an extent, pretty conventional in its approach, I feel the author has done a decent job at weaving the narrative. The writing is simple and breezy to read.

However, I found a few things disturbing when it comes to Chan and Prakash’s relationship. While the setting up of the plot and character sketches are good enough, there could have been some depth in the story.

In a nutshell, The Different Bride is best suited for beginners and especially those who would enjoy reading contemporary romance fiction on a lazy day.
