Book Review – Undelivered letters

If technological advancements had given the city a telephone exchange, a better signal for entertainment, and modern appliances to be proud of, they also took away a lot. Its citizens could never experience a handwritten letter filled with love.

Book Review – Undelivered letters

I have been deeply touched by the book. It took me on an emotional ride. Nostalgic. I cried while smiling. The story starts when a happily married couple Aron and Sara were packing to relocate. Aron is a postman and his job need him to move. While packing Sara found a bunch of letters dating 20 years ago. Aron got numb to realize his negligence. And takes a decision with Sara encouragnment.


The characters are well developed and almost feel real to reader. Their pain, anguish and even joy can be felt.  


The book is non-linear and has multiple threads together. Yet, it is lucid.


The story was refreshing and heart-warming. The letters bring out a good closure of hurt, desertion, wait and guilt. I would remember the story for long.

Am I Recommending it?

Yes. It is a good book for light reading. A page turner.

4 stars upon 5.
