STOR­IZEN RE­VIEWS

Call Me Saaya by Zoe M

Storizen Magazine - - What's Inside - – by Swapna Peri

he book is a love story that kin­dles be­tween Shamsher, an as­pir­ing pho­tog­ra­pher who is down to earth in his per­son­al­ity though he comes from a wealthy fam­ily and Saaya, a sim­ple girl with very big dreams in life. The con­trast per­son­al­i­ties show­case great emo­tions of love and friend­ship that are also en­gulfed with other feel­ings and things like jeal­ousy, ha­tred, mystery, re­la­tion­ship and hu­man val­ues. At some places, the read­ers will def­i­nitely fall in love with Shamsher and at some places get an­noyed by the way Saaya takes hold of her life. Saaya fails to iden­tify the im­por­tance of peo­ple in her life mak­ing her­self push into un­wanted sit­u­a­tions. On the other hand, as Shamsher is a proac­tive and pos­i­tive per­son, al­ways looks onto the brighter side of life and takes wise de­ci­sions in ev­ery task he takes up. As the story pro­gresses, we can see how the per­son­al­i­ties col­lide and thus lead to new twists. The story un­rav­els a hid­den mystery that is the cen­ter point of the story. What role do Shamsher and Saaya play in the mystery? Who is Rana and what im­por­tance does he carry out in the story? Be­come a de­tec­tive and un­fold the mystery in the story by read­ing it.

What I like:

1. The pic­turesque de­scrip­tion of the beau­ti­ful places of Ra­jasthan 2. The con­trast per­son­al­i­ties of Shamsher and Saaya tied with a string called ' love ' 3. Good com­bi­na­tion of all feel­ing and emo­tions

What I didn't like:

1. The story seemed to drag at some places and mo­not­o­nous 2. The ex­tra dip of drama could have been curbed at some places in the story

Nar­ra­tion: An in­ter­est­ing nar­ra­tion is found in the story but with some un­wanted drama.

Book Cover: The cover im­age of the book is an art im­age of a but­ter­fly and a bunch of beau­ti­ful flow­ers. Noth­ing much can be said about the cover im­age.

Book Ti­tle: The ti­tle of the book ' Call me Saaya ' is very dif­fer­ent and at­tract­ing.

Lan­guage and Gram­mar: A fine lan­guage and gram­mar are used.

Char­ac­ters: All the char­ac­ters in the story are plot­ted well with am­ple amount of weight.

My Ver­dict: A nice one­time read­able love story.

Fi­nal Rat­ing: 3/5 Swapna worked as SAP Con­sul­tant for 10 years in Ma­jor IT com­pa­nies. Read­ing has al­ways been her pas­sion and oc­ca­sional paint­ing her hobby. She de­cided to quit her job, look af­ter the fam­ily and pur­sue her hobby of read­ing and paint­ing in a larger way. Thus, her big leap into book re­view­ing has paved a way and has been suc­cess­ful to date. Read­ing chal­lenges in­ter­est her a lot and vis­it­ing book fairs is her fa­vorite thing. She be­lieves that there is no good back or bad book, but only books. Writ­ing un­bi­ased re­views is her strength and she is ap­pre­ci­ated by fel­low re­view­ers and read­ers for the same. An an­thol­ogy of mus­ings with her paint­ings is her pend­ing dream!
