Sarfaraz is from a mediocre family with high values. A bright student and a gym freak who isn’t certain that who actually his soul mate is.

In college after time passes he realizes the value and meaning of true love. But great starts meet tragic ends sometimes.

What happens when there is an attack in the city? How all this will affect Sarfaraz and people associated to him? Will things change for better?

Title and Cover-

The title and cover both are nice and suiting the tale well. I loved the colours of the cover and the elements shown. But definitely the cover lacks detailing. Different aspects of the tale could have been incorporated in order to make the cover look more lively and extravagant. For now, neither the cover nor the title has that power to make any reader have a good look at the book before picking it.


I loved to notice different characters; mainly they were the college going students and their family. The characters were unique in their own way. There was a complete buffet in the book.

From the major characters I surely loved Sarfaraz, Meghna, and Siddhartha. I found them really capable of drawing attention towards them whenever there part came in the story.

And from the minor characters I loved Avantika and Rameez. The way Avantika was heading in her life can be seen from two perspectives but only those who are in her shoes can understand the trauma behind her moves. I totally loved her. And Rameez well yes he was a very interesting character without a spine and he stole the show for that.


The narration was kept simple and to the point, same like the first book written by the same author. Same design, same short chapters, same easy vocabulary. I liked the fact that the author has his own style of taking his book forward.


The story showcased in “The Colour of Love” is a great balanced tale of a group of people that are ruling the book. What I liked about the book is the subject. The story is not just the love story it’s much more. The story has elements of rage, harmony, unity, fondness, love, lust, pride, honour and what not.

I liked the complete concept of the book. It was working in all terms for me. Though the book was short but I felt that it was complete in its own way, because it was capable of showing what many big sized novels can’t interpret.

Talking about the story, well I thought that the start of the story was magnificent. The story if one talks in larger terms is based on the college life of our male lead, Sarfaraz. I found a very drastic change in his life from first year of his college till the last. And that is the exciting factor of the book. I loved the transitions in the story and in the characters too.

What I liked is the outlook of the characters over relationships. The author has kept everything sorted yet complex at the same time. And this has made the story touch different heights altogether. I liked the movements in the story when the chapter of Avantika was started. I found her to be a really interesting character. At one point of time she was termed as shy and at the other end she was termed to be something very different. I like when the characters change themselves for some good with the story.

Meghna was an interesting character. The changes in a person when the middle portion of the story arrives really help things in great length. I loved the whole episode of Valentine’s Day. I inspected great changes in the story. The characters changed colours. Everything mixed well to create a great end point.

But the climax was really not matching the subtlety of the ending chapters. I found it to be really over the top. But the way things progre ssed in the climax are nice. There could have been better way to wrap things up but that was the author’s call definitely.

Summing up- The book was a great encounter. There were a lot of things to experience and see apart from some people in love. I liked the way things were progressing. A smooth flow was maintained till the climax. A little more work on the end and the book could have become a complete package.


• “When love happens to you, the world becomes a better place.”


A mixed tale of romance with different elements, it can be your pick if you are into uncomplicated books.
