First of all a huge thanks to the author and the team for providing me with a copy of the book, I owed you one , and words can shape the gratitude i have towards the team for being patient towards my review. The book for me was a bitter sweet experience as there are many parts of the book that was so good for me that i loved picking up this book but at the same time some of the things equally ruined the experience as well.
I owed you one – Official Synopsis
Dev Khanna has it all before a mysterious letter shakes the very foundation he has built his life on. With his beliefs challenged, he decides to close the chapter once and for all. I Owed You One is the story of promises and commitments, of triumphs and defeat, and of holding on and letting go.
I owed you one – RWAT Take
I owed you one fortunately isn’t just a romance novel but touch upon so many aspects of human relationships and struggle that the theme itself was a plus point for me for the book. When i picked up the book i had kindly fated the book to be another indian engineering romance. It wasn’t until i started reading the book and was way invested into more than half the book, that i realised that the book was not another romance novel but a journey of the main character.
I loved two aspects of the book. One that the book deals with complex story plots and layers and it knows what it is talking about. Secondly i love the story flows with a proper sequence to everything that is happening within the story
While i liked these parts, there were two things that kind of worked in the bad phase for the book. One. At times it felt that the book lagged a bit with description ride of human emotions and what everyone is feeling in a particular scene. The reason why i didn’t like it was because i felt that the book started getting dragged at those points. Secondly in the copy of the book i received there were major pages that were blank. These pages were the ones where actual plot twist were happening so you can imagine my grunt at this point.
I did enjoy the book and apart from the part that my copy of the book had major parts missing in terms of misprinting leaving me bereft of the crucial plot developments, i had enjoyed the book and felt was an amazing story to invest you time in. it had an actual story to tell.
