My Take

The title of the My True Angel gives a hint of love story and the cover of the book is simple and beautiful.  The plot is a blend of emotions, love, friendship, affection, loneliness, humor,  religion, and most importantly family values.

This is the story of the protagonist Iqbal  software engineer from Kerala and moves to Bangalore for a job hunt and with the dream of finding an angel. Iqbal joins a software company and meets Rubina a Muslim girl from Delhi falls in love with her but Rubina rejects the the proposal and also complains the higher authorities of the company about harassing her because of it Iqbal was fired out. Then he joins new company and there he meets Payal. Payal was the first angel of his life who loves unconditionally without any expectation. Payal is Hindu and Iqbal is from Muslim orthodox family where chances of getting married with to other religion is strictly prohibited. Payal father was supporting to the marriage for the sake of his daughter’s happiness but on the other hand Iqbal’s family were not supporting to the relationship. Payal and Iqbal breakups there relationship for the parents happiness and try to move on in life with other proposal and promise to keep in touch. Later Iqbal gets engaged with third angel of his life Nazriya. After engagement he was back to Bangalore and meets his first angel of his life Rubina. Rubina apologize him for what she had done with him. Rubina and Iqbal becomes friends and Rubina asks whether his love for her still remains in heart. Iqbal met with accident. What happens to Iqbal and his angels to know more read the book.

The author has portrayed each and every character with utmost significance of their own and every one of them has done justice to their respective roles throughout the story. Narration of the book is done well.

Language is simple and lucid to read and connect with the story and being engaged throughout the story. All in all, a good easy book to read, a book which won’t require the use of a dictionary, a book which even an amateur reader would love to get indulged in. Pace is slow. The story flows like a movie. The book have been portrayed in such a way, that any reader will be able to connect with the story and live the journey with them.

She was the true angel that God had sent with a healing touch. When I was low and depressed in life, she was the one who inspire me to live and not give up on loving people.

I recommend this book to the readers who are seeking for a quick read or a light-heated romantic novel.

    After reading the review, it seems like a light book to read. the story line seems very real. Such things do happens when two people who belong to different religions want to spend their lives together but they have to let go their feelings due to some reasons.
