I received the book, She lives me, He loves me not, by Zeenat Mahal, as a review copy from Indireads. Thank you, Naheed, for the book. What a book to release on Valentine’s Day. It is the story of Zoella and Fardeen set in Pakistan.
Zoella has been in love with her best friend’s elder brother, Fardeen, ever since she can remember. And to top it all, he loves the glamorous Neha. And then fate intervenes, he meets with an accident, disfigures his face and his fiancée, Neha, shies away from him. And Zoella fiancé breaks off his engagement with her.
So, Fardeen’s parents get beautiful Zoella married to grotesque Fardeen. She marries him because she loves him and he marries her out of pity. And thus, begins their marriage of convenience.
The language is simple and the flow is good and unlike other books from Indireads, it is a novel and not a novella, thus, making the story more interesting. This book revolves around the two main characters and the author has described in details, the feelings of both the characters. Initially, I felt pity for Zee but later I realized that she was quite a strong person and Fardeen deserved all my sympathy. The author has depicted an ideal relationship between the members of Fardeen’s family.
