Book Review - A Walk In The Rain by Udai Yadla

Most of us love to walk in the rain. For once to shed all our inhibitions and allow the drops to quench our reticence and let us be. A look at the cover page and you may well be mistaken to think it to be the same. A story of a young couple madly in love running around trees made for a cozy reading with a hot coffee besides your window on a lazy rainy afternoon. But then there is a lot more than what meets the eye.

My Thoughts

The prologue and the way the story moves forward makes you believe that it is a script wrapped in a novel and frankly speaking it doesn’t disappoint on that point.

Two completely different people are brought together by fate. One full of life and other with fear of rejection instilled deep down. They feed off each other and subconsciously develop a liking towards each other. When things started looking positive for them, fate had different plans. With an untimely stroke of fate they were separated without a chance of exchanging pleasantries one last time. With no way to find the other, each one moved on with life. But then life has different means to make you go crazy and spell bound all at once. On one dark and gory night after about two decades they face each other albeit as strangers trying to make things right. As they get together and move towards their common target, their lives entwined a lot more than they would have thought or wanted.

The research and the process of writing may not be excellent, but having said that the author has a very easy flow and style of writing. So also the story glides seamlessly through the flashbacks and back to the present. Like all romantic thrillers the book has it all lust, love, violence, thrill and drama constantly changing frames. It starts of slow and is medium paced all through. It becomes to predicable as it progresses and also defies logic at many a places than one would have liked.

It is a kind of book I would recommend for the ones who are not a regular reader of romantic thrillers and are in for a easy paced dramatic love story with a happy ending.

Fruit Verdict

It’s like a half ripe banana, plucked before it could be ripe enough for consumption.
