Metro Diaries is a collection of twenty tales written by Namrata aka Privy Trifles and they are all about love. I had to read this one as I just love the romance genre.
I must say that Namrata has written a beautiful collection of love stories in all its forms and the many facets of relationships between couples.
Some of the stories that I really liked are:
Love Thy Dreams - It is the story of Abhi and Kavya; their love that holds steady over time and distance. Love blossoms in their pre-university days and holds good till the end.
Then, Now and Forever - This one just got better. A short story of Ron and Anna; where he learns to live his life again through a letter written by his grandfather, his namesake.
You & I - I simply loved the relationship between Zahir Khan and Radhika, their trust in each other. It’s the kind of love that’s ready to wait for a decade before tying the knot. Awesome!
Once in a lifetime - The story is a poignant tale of love between Nitya and Ansh. The author touches the reader’s heart by the way she’s woven the words. Too good!
While I have mentioned the above four, I must say that all of the tales are well-written and has something for the reader to take away.
Some quotes from the book that I really enjoyed reading:
"Love thy dreams, always, for they are the fuel that will drive you to your goal. I just helped you, but with your passion no dream of yours can remain incomplete.”
"Silent breeze, rustling leaves, and a faint music in the heart, Reminiscence of the beautiful time spent together, Wish I could hold you back today, tonight, and forever; Or maybe just pause the time and let you go away never!"
“I don’t know how, why, what, where and when. All I know is you have changed my world completely. You made me smile, which I had forgotten how to; you made me live when I had left it long back; most importantly, you made me love when I thought I would never be able to love, ever again. Today all that I want is to grow old with you and wake up in your arms every day, staring into your beautiful eyes, knowing that you are mine. Marry me, please!”
While the book has been very well written, I think that it needs a better editor and a tighter proofing. Except for that, it makes for a breezy and enjoyable read.
