Book Review: King of hearts by Prassant Kevin

King of hearts

Author: Prassant Kevin
Publisher: Bookmozo Publishers
Rating: 2.5/5

‘No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.’ ‘King of hearts’ proves this right. This is a heart melting story of two best friends, who buckle down to get their dreams fulfilled. The protagonist of the story is Ayan, who is a writer by passion and is struggling in the world of literature. Amidst the dog-eat-dog attitude of the fellow competitors, Ayan works his fingers to the bone to survive. His stars change when his literary work is done and dusted and luck shines bright on him. His flair for words lures the readers, so much so, that they go gaga for him. ‘King of hearts’ is a quest of Ayan to find his lost friendship with Misha, a quest to rekindle the candle of love, a quest to prove the worth and to rule the hearts of millions. But wait, there is more in store for you, for this story is not that simple as it sounds.

My opinion
‘King of hearts’ has a good plot with limited characters and appropriate characterization. The cover of the book seems messed up. The introductory lines could have been changed in order to make the title page attractive. The title of the book is fine. The font used for the blurb is crummy because it is not at all readable. Same is the problem with the other content printed on the back page.

Coming to the content of the book, the typesetting and editing is awful. Again, the font type is not appropriate (Book Antiqua, 12 would have been better). The alignment or rather the pattern followed for writing the title of the chapters, is not in coherence because some chapters have a title (the font size is again a problem here) and some don’t.
The setting and the narration is fine but the wrong use of tense and the presence of frequent grammatical and other syntactical errors make the text ambiguous. The use of ‘hairs’ and the short forms like 'coz', do not fail to annoy me more. At some places, the text is incomprehensible because of the mix-up with the genders of the characters.

Overall, with this book the author has set his foot in the door and there is still a long way to go. Best wishes!
