Book Review:

A Walk In The Rain is a cute, simple and beautiful love story though at times it gave me a feel of a Bollywood movie. The plot has so many things like a movie; boy-girl romance, villains, fights, suspense etc.

Sometimes you need some light reads to freshen up your mind and A Walk In The Rain is one such book. The author has done a good job of telling a simple tale in an interesting manner with some thrilling twists. The book takes you on a roller coaster ride of intense emotions, and plot twists. It’s a tale of love, and retribution.

Surya, or Sunny as he is known to his friends, is a system programmer. He doesn’t socialise much, a lingering effect of an indifferent father and secluded childhood. But the few friends he has, he cherishes. Saloni is a prostitute forced into the job by circumstances and the greed of others. When fate brings Saloni and Sunny together, they witness the murder of Sunny’s close friend. As Sunny sets off to avenge his friend’s death, he enlists the help of Saloni who agrees but asks for money in exchange. The two set off to catch the murderer.

The characters are well-developed, diverse and likable. The narration style of the author is fresh easy to read though at some places I found it to be a bit dragging. The story is intriguing and the pace is good.  The cover of the book is simple, nothing very impressive but I liked its title. Overall the book is a light read and interesting.

If you like romantic thrillers and are looking to read a light romantic and entertaining read, then you must go for this one. A walk in the rain is a journey of Sunny and Saloni, but as you read, you will also literally join them in the adventure.
