The Closure by Sweta Sureka | Book Review
Aarti slid back and started staring outside the window. It was not the first time she was getting married, but this time she was making the decision after a long haul of struggle.
Sahil: "I have no intention of being physical with you again, but this can be an accord of providing for each other as companions so that you can realize the aspects of your life that you deserve."
Rishabh: "Maybe I needed her to go away from me before I could realize her importance. God! I miss her."
Ansh: "You're evil and the worst person, I've ever met. I'd like to think that you're probably dead now A.. A..Ar... Aarti..."
It's not a midlife, neither is it an existential, nor an identity crisis, but just a need, an urge deep-found in human wishes: an appeal for closure. That's what the journey of Aarti is all about, from being a happily invested mother-cum-housewife to a fulfilled, self-aware human being.

The story is about Aarti who is married to Rishabh, but there is no love in their relationship. She continues it for the sake of her son. Until she met Sahil who is her guitar teacher.
I loved the cover and the title of the book. The story didn't flow as well as I would have liked. There was a lot of detailed description that I find can put me off a story, but eventually the story comes together. This book has managed to make me go through various emotions whilst reading it, changing my thoughts on it as the story went on. All the characters were wonderfully written and so easy to visualise and connect with. There are some likable characters and some not so much and I am pretty sure it does reflect life as we know it in one way or another.
This is the first book by this author I have read, and it definitely won’t be the last. It was a very enjoyable read and I am grateful to the author for access to this book in return for an honest review.
