Writing Style: 2.5/5
There is a famous dialogue from 80’s movies which means human needs only three things to live. They are food, clothes and house. Well, in modern times two more has got place in them. Smartphone and Love. In popular English fiction 90% of the literary works are based on love and trust me as a reviewer I find it quite disappointing. Yet as the job demands…
‘Heart of Bullets’ is written by Nikhil Kushwaha. A love story of two soldier friends and a girl. Arpan, Sam and Shradha. A love triangle based on span of war. Like every love story, this one also have same ingredients like love, jealousy, betrayal, society, sacrifice and all. Story nowhere in novel comes as a fresh breeze. Writing style is also good but in some scenes it feels stretched unnecessarily. Detailed description can ruin the spark of literary work. The poems between lines were really fantastic as they provided soul to the novel. Scenes from school life are quite refreshing and joyful. If am not being grammatical Hitler, also noticed few errors. This novel won’t be out of blue as it has a repeated storyline with filmy ending. The ending reminded me of old time movies and can quote few, too. Haven’t gone through his two previous works but this one hasn’t impressed in anyway. Language is not naïve yet missing the unique touch.
Giving my best regards for the writer’s literary carrier.
My overall rating for this work is 2.5/5.
