Melancholic Delight - Tista Ray



Rating: 3 out of 5
Cover Rating: 4 out of 5

Synopsis:

‘There’s no love like the first love. There’s no feeling like the desperation to attain true love. Love or lust matters not when two eyes meet, uniting the souls at once’

It’s this love which frees Sri from the reign of darkness and makes her heart rise to lofty heights of anticipated passion with no one to pull her back to reality. It’s Jishu, who appears as the first ray of hope in her overshadowed life and showers her with the ultimate sense of freedom, which she has been craving for. He fills her life with the long awaited perfection. To a flawed person he appears as the flawless. He becomes one among her most perfect acquaintances, but is he really as unblemished as he appears to be. If so, can a flawed person risk a life with the flawless? Do opposites really attract each other or it deviate them from their normal avenues of life?

It’s a deeply compelling love affair which takes the readers back to their childhood memories and brings back to them the essence of true love.

The changing relations of a man’s life add force to the much ordinary teenage passion. The book is not just about love. It’s about a journey called life which either ends in melancholy or in delight.

Review:

What do I think...

This story is so different; written different, narrated different and uses words that are maybe a little too descriptive.

This is about first loves and a little about it reminded me of when I was at school. Some lovely quotes. It's an insightful read but I wouldn't call it a story. It is more a telling of a situation  for me it hits you at the end and their is a lot more to it than meets the eye.

It's hard to rate because it's very different. 

The Indian family rituals were interesting and I enjoyed the mother daughter relationship. 

I'm really not sure what to make of it, confusing at times, rather insightful at times.

3 stars.
