A Thousand Unspoken Words


“The monster I run from is in me.” ‘A Thousand Unspoken Words’ is all about realizing self-worth and fighting the odds to prove your identity. Set in the Indian backdrop, this is a love story that will leave you wanting for more. The female lead, Tilottama, is an idealist or a visionary to be more precise, who is in love with Musafir, the writer. The male lead, Riddhimaan, is also an idealist but less pragmatic. Describing the whirlpool of emotions, this book is a pot boiler. The story portrays many relationships and the loopholes in them- the selfless love of a lover and the strained relationship with the devil within!

Grab this book to have a sneak-peek into the lives of Tilottama and Riddhiman and their journey alone as well as together.

My Opinion

‘In the social jungle of human existence, there is no feeling of being alive without a sense of identity’. ‘A Thousand unspoken words’ is a heart wrenching novella, with a twisted plot and a good climax. The cover of the book is superb; the subtle orange mixed with gleamy yellow and a tinge of black- all adding to the overall impact of the title, which is very captivating as well. The typesetting and editing is fine.

The plot is gripping and the lucid narration acts like a cherry on the cake. There are no monotonous lengthy descriptions; the setting of the scenes is relatable and gives the readers ample opportunity to experience every moment. The use of vocabulary is splendid. The best and the most striking feature of the book is the ‘crisp and short chapters’ and the very last dialogue said by Tilottama.

The characters are brought to life by mere words and the authoress has successfully portrayed the emotions of love, desire and admiration.

Overall, this story is strong, emotional and intelligent piece of fiction which will definitely touch your heart.

A recommended read for sure!

Best wishes to the authoress!
