Book Review:

In today’s immensely hectic and robotic lives, the essence and emotions a letter holds within it is somehow getting extinct. But the charm and emotions of letters will never lose their way in the horde of WhatsApp and Facebook. The author chose a highly unique and beautiful concept to pen down such a lovely book that stayed with me for long after I finished it. What appealed to me the most about this book is its concept.

The theme of the book is about a postman who finds a bag of abandoned letters, each associated with a roller coaster of emotions. The stories are woven around some undelivered letters which were written 20 years back and had failed to reach their recipients then. What happens when these letters were delivered after 20 years is all about the book. I loved the emotional journey that I had with each story.

The stories are sensitive, the narration is beautiful and the language is lucid. There are many small tit bits and moments that are beautifully woven with the main stories and make them altogether an awesome read. Kudos to the author for penning such a wonderful book.

All in all, Undelivered Letters is a captivating and highly enjoyable read that is recommended to everyone who are looking for something different to read. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book.
