Book Review:

You Raise Me Up is targeted towards young adult readers. The story is simple with no twists and turns. May resonate well with teens and young adults. They will find it relatable because the story depicts the life of the young people in metropolitan cities. The descriptions and imagery are nice at places. The metropolitan life of students and young independent people has been sketched vividly and effectively.

The story moves smoothly but at times the dialogues felt too lengthy and boring. They could have been cut short into crisp, impressive dialogues. At times the events seemed too predictable, maybe because we have read innumerable love stories.

A simple read. If you are looking for a light reading, might give this one a shot.

Thanks to the publisher for providing the book for an honest review.
