Coffee Date by Saravana Kumar Murugan is a light, breezy read and the book delivers what it promises – a simple short romance story.
There is a hero, a heroine, no villains but there are people who like to create wounds and then rub salt in the lead pair’s story.
Saravana could well be telling the story of you or me when he goes on to describe the work environment we face on a daily basis.
The language is easy and palatable, the story moves in a straight line without huge suspense events waiting to pounce on the reader.
However, the editing is quite not up to the mark and a lot could have been saved had the editors been careful with the book. I also am not a fan because of the ending of the book. Read on to find out what happened towards the end of the story.
Wishing Saravana all the best, Coffee Date is not a bad first attempt.
