Quite early in his life, Aman had been labelled a ‘weirdo’. His side-parted, oil soaked hair and gawky physique made him the butt of jokes among his peers. There is nothing spectacular in his life—he studies all day, has never had an interaction with a girl that lasted more than five minutes, and scribbles his inner musings into his best friend, a personal diary.
Deep down, however, the guilt of being considered a social killjoy by the society starts to have a negative impact on him.
When forced out of his solitary shell into the action-infused warehouse that is ‘college’, Aman’s life takes a drastic U-Turn. Owing to a Chemistry project, he is forced to partner up with Kiara—a cheerful, carefree soul who tucks away her dark, brooding past upon arriving in Manipal.
What follows is a series of awkward encounters and quirky adventures; ones that throw them in the deep end and make them face their worst fears.
When opposites collide, they create a spark of change… Letters in the Rain tells you about a weirdo and a wannabe. Their meet up, how their life cross path, how their own spheres impact from that fusion sums up the story.
Aman and Kiara holds layers to them, like a shelled person who holds something else in reality inside which defines what they are; that characterization is the main beauty of this book. You may find the story or the basic plot line something you might have already read or heard, but the people involved are different and their reaction and reasoning to it different to it. How they accept… refuse… understand what is happening with and around them. The writing style and presentation makes it outstanding.
I personally liked the title and the book cover design, they pleased me pretty well and urged me to grab the copy. The blurb seemed fine too.
I will rate this 4/5 🙂 , if you are up for a warm read, this one is for you.
