My view on the book

“Mohini Theevu” is a very crisp and gripping story that leads us to finish it in one go. The author Kalki has never failed to make me feel wow! His works are as it will make us fall in love with the way the love is depicted. We know that the concept of love in the good olden days of kings and empires is joyful, tough, heartbreaking, but not complicated as of now. In love, there will be first sight, romance, poetic conversations, patience, fights, misunderstanding, confidences, braveness, etc each of these things will be shown beautifully by Kalki in his works.
The portrayal of each character and word built in this story is exquisite. When the author delivers the emotions like happy, sad, shy, angry, guilty, it makes me feel and experience them. and only a few authors can make the readers feel like that. Kalki is one of them. One more thing which I found very attractive is the way the author has delineated the nature’s beauty is wonderful. The plot of the story is also very engaging and riveting.

Overall the story is very engrossing, thrilling and, romantic. If you are searching for a pretty short story for the quick afternoon or evening read “Mohini Theevu” is my suggestion. Because why not, when LOVE is all over in the air we breathe!

Happy reading!!
