The title got me curious to find out what the price of love could be.


The Indian-English language was easy and simple to understand.


The story revolves around a self-centered woman named Sonia who seems to be lost in life. She is smart and ambitious but is disturbed and lacks self-esteem due to her troubled childhood. Her drive to always get her way lands her in a marriage she has second thoughts about. While she tries to balance work and home, she finds herself getting close to other men in her life. In her diary, as she pens down her thoughts, she often recalls her stepmother’s harsh words and takes many decisions in life only to prove her, and others, wrong. She ultimately quits working only to find that she suffers from DPD. And, how surprisingly supportive men in her life make her disorder easy to cure.


*It was simple and easy to read and understand.
*The story had a nice flow and was fast-paced.
*It brought out a message that parents play a huge role in a child’s life.
*It also tells us that we should fight and win our battles before we can bring up emotionally independent individuals.


*There were minor errors which could have been omitted.
*It was a simple story of a disturbed woman, perhaps not a genre for me.


This book was a one-time read about a disturbed woman being unfaithful and falling in love many times despite having an ever-supportive spouse. I was probably looking for more romance like in those Mills & Boons novels, nevertheless, it was a nice read and kept me wanting to know how this woman’s life goes on.
