Book Review: The Twirled November by Krishna K. Verma

The Twirled November

Author: Krishna K. Verma
Publisher: Inked Company
Rating: 2.5/5

Love triangles are nothing new for us. When everything else fails, movies like ‘Mujhse Dosti Karogi’ and ‘Har dil jo Pyar Karega’ are released. They are entertaining but one has to be prepared to witness the drawn-out romance with a perfect predictable ending. “Twirled November” is a sweet love tale that is relatable and entertaining. The story revolves around Krish and Avantika, who come in contact by chance and are struck hard by Cupid’s arrow.

With a slightly disconnected title, the book offers a story that is not only repetitious but very much predictable. Krish gets infatuated to Avantika and it is only after some time when he realizes that he loves her cousin, Kanak. Amidst sentimental drama and compromises, the story moves further leading to the union of Krish and Avantika. The use of the term ‘A Novel’ is incorrect. The publisher should have taken notice of this and should have corrected it because there is a difference between a novel and a novella. The cover page is nice- sober and subtle. With an apt blurb, the book might be of interest to all college-goers.

I would like to compliment the author’s ability to present this piece of fiction in a language that can be understood by everyone. The organization of content is fine but the layout of the text on each page does not meet the standard.

The book has too many editing errors. Ignorance towards proofreading the text acts as a big drawback. Using simple language is fine but using correct grammar or getting the work proofread by an editor is more important. With finely tuned and paced narration, the author has done an excellent job in making the story interesting.

The plot is gripping but the major drawback lies in the extended descriptions. This book, no doubt, is a quick read and the reason for this is the presence of numerous dialogues. The plot lacks originality. For the ones who are looking for something deep and meaningful, this book might or might not serve the interest.

Another point that I would like to highlight is the abrupt ending of the book. The plot moves at a comfortable pace but suddenly the air sends across happy vibes and the story ends.

Overall, a good effort by the author!
Best wishes!
