‘A Waiting Wave’ by Kulpreet Yadav is a love story that knows no bounds of place and time. A very aptly titled that the book is, readers will like going through it, irrespective of their age and liking of any specific genre of literature.
The major protagonists of the story are Harry and Kareena, the couple in love; with occasional support from Harry’s father and Kareena’s mother. ‘A Waiting Wave’ portrays the inner conflicts of the married couple and the realization of their own mistakes that momentarily threw off the stability of the relationship and their married life. Nature took a toll on the unstable and brittle form of the vulnerable relationship and what followed forms the most exciting parts of the book.
Kulpreet Yadav, as much a travel buff that he is, has managed to describe the beauty of Port Blair and adjacent islands of the Andaman & Nicobar belt in a way very subtle yet surprisingly assuring. The author lived in Port Blair for a year researching for this book, and his interest and knowledge in the lives of the tribes from the Sentinelese and other adjacent islands is reflected in the story. Also, the survival of the protagonist Harry from the cruelty of Tsunami has been described in a brilliant way by the author.
Writing: Kulpreet Yadav’s writing attracts the interest of readers more than the story in ‘A Waiting Wave’. With occasional melodrama and apt description of distressed lovers, ‘A Waiting Wave’ fairs a little above average to a serious lover of literature. Indeed it is a breezy read, mostly ideal to go through during idle vaccation and travels. The ending is as good as it can be – logically sound, unlike few of the times when the author goes overboard.
Overall, ‘A Waiting Wave’ is a good book with all ingredients of commercial success thoroughly mixed in it. Wishing all the best to Kulpreet Yadav, the author!
Overall Rating: 7/10
