Book Description

Balzeeb, the ultimate emblem of beauty and wisdom, is the object of love for two doctors, friends both: Haroon and Latif. While in deep mourning at the death of her third husband, in a Khanaspur cemetery, Balzeeb meets Haroon. Latif and Haroon simultaneously grow closer and apart as they share their pursuit of “The Princess,” as she is known. The spools of mystery surrounding Balzeeb are woven majestically around the myth of the serpent, tragically unaware of her true nature.

Romance Quartet is a weaver's dream, exploring its depths ranging from paranormal to metaphysical and unfolding during the War of Independence which split the continent of Hind into India and Pakistan. Transcending all religions and impaling the heart, this story’s message is eternal, endearing and not one you will soon forget.

I jumped into this book with extremely high expectations due to the outstanding ratings on Goodreads, so my rating may be a little swayed by my disappointment. I can't take away from the prose and imagery throughout the novel - it certainly would receive a 4 or 5 star for that - but the story wasn't grabbing. I kept pushing myself through this story thinking there was something I was missing which would reveal itself as I got further and further. In the end, I think I just didn't have enough connection personally to the religiousity, love at first site, and pretty much the entirety of the novel. I jumped into this book hoping to get more out of its setting in Pakistan and wanting it to spur a Pakistani/Indian book splurge where I read a ton of stories out of that area, but this wasn't the story to do it. That doesn't mean it's not a good book. It just wasn't a good book for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice Imagery July 5, 2013

I enjoyed the imagery in this book. The descriptions really painted the images effortlessly. Although I enjoyed the imagery the love at first site and internal monologues of the characters did not keep me interested. I am not religious so I feel a lot of the religious references were lost on me. I am also not fond of History and know very little of the location where this book takes place. If I was interested in the religions discussed or the location of the novel I'm sure I would have enjoyed this book more. If you enjoy books with religious content or based in the India/Pakistan area this book would be great for you.
