My life with a Soul is a new concept by the author and quite a good one. The story revolves around Sam, the protagonist and Selda, his Love. Suraj, being a Editor himself has really used his knowledge, skills and imagination power to the extent. The way he portrayed Sam's character, talking to himself and expressing his thoughts in words and that too on a consistence basis is one of the best part of the story. The unconditional love between Sam & Selda is also something worth reading. Despite the differences they had, still they loved each other genuinely. The end of the book is quite painful when Selda leaves him and dies. The quotes he used at the beginning of each chapter acts as magnet attracting reader to Read On.
A well written story with a unique concept way better than chick-lit stories. Will recommend this book to the readers. Grab a copy if not read yet. Will give ☆☆☆ 1/2 stars :) All the very best Suraj for your future.
