The Boy with a Broken Heart review:
Durjoy Datta is known to satisfy the nerves of his fans and he does it with ease in his recent outing, The Boy with a Broken Heart. It is the sequel of The Boy who Loved. The first novel in the series has left the readers with too many questions and expectations. The Boy with a Broken Heart is the perfect sequel to the former.
What works well in the sequel is its characterization. Readers can easily attach to the characters. The background of each character is penned perfectly. The lead characters would live in every readers mind. When the characters become emotional the readers can feel the same. That’s Durjoy’s first boundary.
Next comes the story. Though the story drags in the initial stages, but it gains phase in the later half. Durjoy has handled the twists with exceptionality. One cannot guess the story’s travel. I was really surprised by the end of it. The end of the novel might impress few and disappoint few.
The lucid language and the size of the book work in its favor. If you loved “The Boy who loved” your love for the series would double after reading “The Boy with a Broken Heart”. A must read for Durjoy fans and romance lovers.
