Everyone Has A Story - Savi Sharma Review

Book Cover Source: Goodreads
Hello Readers...

Everyone has an interesting story to tell...its just that you have to look into them. Today we are going to review Everyone Has A Story which is the debut novel of Savi Sharma. This book gathered mixed reactions among the reading community and I wanted to see what this book is actually about. I liked the synopsis of this book and was really looking to read this book for quite a long time and today I finally have this book. So lets quickly get done with the synopsis and dive immediately into the review.

Everyone has a story.

Meera, a fledgling writer who is in search of a story that can touch millions of lives.

Vivaan, assistant branch manager at Citibank, who dreams of travelling the world.

Kabir, a cafe manager who desires something of his own. Nisha, the despondent cafe customer who keeps secrets of her own.

Everyone has their own story, but what happens when these four lives are woven together?

Pull up a chair in Kafe Kabir and watch them explore friendship and love, writing their own pages of life from the cosy cafe to the ends of the world.


The title of the book is surely captivating and given the fact that this book is being Amazon's Bestseller, it is quite natural for anyone to pick this book up, but before you actually do....hear me out.

The story line is pretty generic and you won't find anything new in the story. Girl meets boy who is pursuing a profession which he is not passionate about. They both meet each other and falls in love however the boy can't be in a relationship since he has some past grudges and can't get over them. One incident happens in the near future which forces him to reconsider his decision. Pretty generic story plot indeed. Now the only thing which could make this book good is a stellar narration and writing.

Before jumping to the narration and writing part, lets take a look at the characters in the story.The entire story revolves around two central characters, Meera and Vivaan. There are two more characters, Kabir and Nisha who are pretty much involved in the main story line and play a significant role in shaping the story of our two main protagonist. The thing which bothered me is that Savi Sharma have not given much details about the background of the characters and as the story progresses, it feels pretty difficult to stay with the story and the characters as you simply can't connect with the characters as all the characters feels strange and unknown to me while reading the story.

Coming to the narration part. Savi Sharma has narrated the story in the first person's perspective with constant shift between Meera and Vivaan's character. The transitions between the characters seems decent, neither too good neither too bad. The novel seems struggling in the way the story is written. All the chapters felt like individual pieces and they were completely disconnected for major part of the story. I won't deny at a certain point in the second half, this book did grab my attention with the story sequence however it didn't lasted for too long because of lack of connect with the characters. A little dive into the characters life and history would help the readers to get familiarize with the characters. The main character of Meera still feels unknown and strange to me even after completing the whole story.

Also this book did left many questions unanswered. This book kept playing guessing game continuously while I was trying to make sense of all the things. Yes, I agree this is Savi Sharma's debut book and she does deserve appreciation for beginning her writing endeavor, but still this book didn't do much a good in my frank opinion. It might be due to my high expectations. One thing I will do like to mention here that I felt really bad the way the community has reacted on the Amazon, where people kept bashing negatively about the author. It would be really great if they could point out the areas as well so that the author could work upon those in her next novel. I really appreciate Savi Sharms's effort but yes this book does feel like its been hyped a bit.

So to sum up, this book is way too much speculative for my liking. For me it was a one time read and I won't recommend this book. To rate this book,I would give this book 2.5 stars out of 5. Still if you want to give this book a try, here are links to the Amazon for the same.
