I wish I could just crawl into a deep mud hole and rest in peace.
Invisible Ties by Nadya A.R. is one such book with a beautiful cover that has been making rounds on social media platforms a lot and people have loved it but unfortunately, it failed to impress me.
Our protagonist Noor is a shy and apprehensive personality who was shouted at and restricted by her mother and her father, who loves Noor and tries to protect her is often burdened by Noor’s mother. She struggles to live to her mother’s expectations but finally finds solace in a Jude mirror. Her life changes after a burglary at her house and after she was tied to an unwanted and unhappy marriage.
The book had an interesting beginning but it was confusing too and I had to struggle my way to understand what was happening and as for the characters, honestly, I didn’t like them or should I say, I couldn’t care less for them. They felt bland and one dimensional to me.
The author has a different and enticing writing style but the narration often confused me. I think the backdrop setting, the description of delicacies, and other things took over the story. As much as I like reading about the picturesque description, there was a point I was looking for something substantial in the story. The plot and the life of characters were lost amidst unnecessary and extensive descriptions.
Rating – 2.75 out of 5 stars
My Verdict – Not an impressive read but it does have mixed reviews and you might end up liking it but it didn’t work for me.
You must realize that maintaining the charade of friendship is impossible in complex relationships, which are smoothly driven by formailty, in the long run.
