BLURB :

A heartwarming tale of love and friendship” ~ Shuchi Singh Kalra

And We Walked Away revolves around the friendship of three friends in college, with a love story blooming in their hearts. It connects to the kind of boys who are in love and keep trying to convince the same girl in different ways for a long time, not moving on in life.

Abhimanyu with the help of his friends Aarush and Dev proposes and tries to convince Naina many times in unusual ways but he fails miserably. However, a trick helps to melt her heart, but destiny has a different plan.

 

REVIEW :

Recieved it well within time and was nearly packed. The cover is simple and soothing of a natural love story that keeps flowing. The blurb is simple and does not give away much of the story. The title is intriguing making you think what could be the possible twists and turns that could happen. The title gives a nostalgic effect to the book. The story is a simple one where as it shows the love story entangled during college times. Wanting more out of love and surviving the college drama. The story felt a bit unclear. The story holds you in the start but through the end the story was really predictable and lost it charm. The language is simple and easy to understand. The hindi poems in between really increase the beauty of explaining what might be going through the character’s head through all the turmoil. The story is based on college romance. And how one needs to walk away somehow at times when you’re not really needed like you should be. Abhimanyu has always been in love with Naina and does everything to prove it to her. But she has her own problems and cannot come through it. Will they fall in love ? Will they have a happy ending? I felt the characters could have been described more and the plot could have some more twists to keep the readers glued. A simple one time read as for me.
Overall -3/5.
