Review:

‘Our Song’ is a sweet touching love story that easily touches the heart of the readers. The character of Ragini and Andrew are so realistically portrayed that one can easily connect with them. It’s a modern day love story set in Bangalore. The story traverses through Bangalore, Shimla and London. The traverse is so smooth and son well connected that the reader can also fee connected throughout. The language is simple and flowing. The book is gripping and interesting from the beginning to the end. There is never a dull moment in the book.

The protagonists are real, they have real challenges and conflicts. Andrew belongs to the cold corporate world whereas Ragini has musical background. Andrew is more thoughtful and calculative while Ragini is impulsive. The two are opposite to each other and therefore easily get attracted to each other. The scenes are very well etched out in the novel. It is almost as if one can visualise and “see” what’s happening. Right from the very beginning, the reader becomes a part of the story through its simple and well-paced narrative style.

Milan’s skill of writing clearly comes out in the way she interweaves the two contrasting worlds of corporate and music. The book has the elements of love, humor, drama and sorrow woven beautifully through its tight and gripping narrative style.
