The book effectively discusses life of youth which connects well. It conveys strong thoughts on love, friendship and life; it tells you to keep moving on in life, to find yourself and be positive and hopeful. I loved the title – because every raindrop is a hope which give me the idea that it can be the hope for the awaiting sunshine or that raindrops are that hope for seeds to sprout; the title gives out much more beautiful meanings that highlights the value of hope, the key point in the story. The story is very well written in very simple language and the places are nicely described. The ending is positive and motivating; something that can give you smiles.
The plot is not something new though and it surely holds some flaws, at some points it felt like it is dragged too much. The cover design could have been better.
I will rate this popular Indian fiction 4/5 🙂 . I would like to recommend it to all my readers. Happy Reading!
