300 Days – When I picked the book I had absolutely no idea what I was getting into. The page count did startle me at first – 402 pages. Yes you heard it right. Now that I am done with the book. How do I decode it? Irrespective of my own opinion a pat on the back to the author for a very brave debut. It’s a very gutsy decision to put the entire sequence of events on paper. At times there are compromises when it’s a debut.
The romance within the pages was raw and real. It brought back memories of the good old days. The biggest strength of the book is it’s ability to make the reader dwell into the dwell into his/her own love story. It will either make the reader travel back in time or re-live the present.
Another major plus is the chemistry and the conflict between the two leaders. I love romances when it focuses solely on the chemistry and conflict between the protagonists without too many subplots or deviations.
The length is both a plus and a minus. It allows the reader to savour each and every moment. On the flip side the conflict drags on and on without any proper resolution. A book should always leave the reader yearning for more. After a certain point I was very desperate for the book to the end.
The editing is flawed. The words are misplaced and re-typed. To me 300 days was a concept which had great potential and promise. Perhaps better editing would have done the trick.
Does love give you a sense of fulfilment or is there life after love ? How long do you hold on to something which is not yours? Is it even worth the time and effort? At what point do you decide it’s time to let go? Pick up the book to have your answers. If you believe that you have patience and time to sit through the entire sequence of events then 300 days is the book for you.
My Rating 3/5
