A Million Times Over by Shuchi Batra is a tale of love, loss, betrayal, heartbreak, and believing in love, all over again. It is a story told with a blend of poetry and prose (something that is very unique!) that narrates the journey of a loving relationship with its share of butterflies and dicey situations.
The saga of Sidharth and Sia’s love started and blossomed over the due course of time. Sid was head over heels in love with Sia and saw a forever with her. But the catch is expectations seldom come true.
However, after hitting the rock bottom, how Sid eventually finds his way to self-love and acceptance is the highlight of this short, quick read.
A Million Times Over does have a usual storyline. But what really intrigued me was its presentation – split into simple words and poetic vibe. The language is pretty lucid and illustrations complement the narrative very well.
I finished the book in no time and found it a good pick for a breezy read. However, I do feel that I craved some depth, some novelty in the plot. Although everything was good, I felt it could have been better.
Nonetheless, if you are looking for some book that shows you light, a book that teaches you the importance of self-love with the tinge of love and poetry, go for it 🙂
