My Review

"Mind blowing story that will leave you breathless with its emotion-drive angst and its twist & turns. CoHo has created a masterpiece there."

            There are many types of books. Some disappoint you, where others are beyond your expectations. Some earns a very special place in your life, while others just steal your heart & soul. Colleen Hoover’s November 9 is the latter one. To say that it scarred me is not enough. Actually, there are no words to describe what it did to me. Its official- CoHo left me speechless.

"I didn't think you needed rescuing. I just sometimes find it difficult to control my indignation in the presence of absurdity."

"If she's not careful. I might just fall in love with her. Tonight."

"When you find love, you take it. You grab it with both hands and you do everything in your power not to let it go. You can't just walk away from it and expect it to linger until you're ready for it."

"You'll never be able to find yourself, if you're lost in someone else."

"Loving someone doesn't just include that person, Ben. Loving someone means accepting all the things and people that person loves, too. And I will. I do. I promise."

                      So basically, the story revolves around the date November 9 and its different impact and importance on Ben and Fallon’s life. Ben and Fallon are two strangers whose lives get crossed on November 9.  But even the even the little sparks (more like fireworks) of attraction and tentative hope of more in the future, doesn’t change the fact that Fallon is moving to the opposite part of the country in few hours. So they make a pact of meeting on (Yes, you guessed it right!)November 9 for the next five years and see how life plays with them and if they still wants to be together. Till now you are thinking, well what is so special about that? See I know the concept is not that original, but the story..... As I said before, it’s astonishing.
                 CoHo has skilfully written this masterpiece. The moment you think you know what’s gonna happen next, you are left floored. You become curious to know more, so you keep turning the page and then you discover you have almost reached the end. And the end, God! I could have never imagined how wormed, the thread of their lives (Ben and Fallon’s) were.
            At last I could only say, that November 9 is not the book to be read, but it is to be devoured. And it’s apparent that anyone who has not read this has not lived their life to the fullest. I hope you are not gonna be one of them!
