Voice of the Rain Season review:

Voice of the Rain Season is a different attempt in the romantic genre. Subrata Dasgupta in his 17th book has surprised the readers with mystery and twists.

When Joy and Martin’s romantic relationship unfolds, one might find the story a usual romance. But, Subrata scores when the mystery element pops up. The story picks phase from the moment.

The characterization is perfect for the story. The steady progress of the story in the mid pages, keeps the readers busy. The twists aids the flow of the story. The beauty of the story is how the author handled the mystery.

Subrata’s love towards Kolkata is evident right from page one. To the memory of 47, theatre road, Kolkata, India is enough to exhibit it. He has used simple language which makes it an easy read even for beginners. The book is compact and can be completed in a single read. Apart from few hiccups Voice of the Rain Season is a must read for romantic mystery lovers.


Worked well:
  • Storyline
  • The unexpected mystery element
  • Twists and characterization
Let down:
  • Martin’s Déjà vu
  • Few dull moments
