Editorial Reviews


"An intimate character piece. Complex and compelling. Distinct and realistic, it does an admirable job of relating the emotional trials and tribulations of the main characters as they struggle to grown both individually and as a couple." - Publishers Weekly, BookLife Prize

"I loved Beena Khan's The Name of Red. First of all, it's about readers--two at least. Second, it's a powerful look into how love starts and how it grows. Bravo, Ms. Khan, for a triumphant debut as an author! -

"A very talented writer. I would describe this as more of a literary novel. For some reason I was reminded of the French writer, Marguerite Duras. I really love the basic premise of the story - two people meeting over a shared love of reading - plus the subtle storytelling, and the character-driven nature! You've woven together an intriguing mystery. Considering it's a debut book, I think you've done a great job." - Karen McKellar, Book Editor  

"Your love of books shines through just in the first few pages. I think this book will really appeal to book lovers!" - Stephanie Parent, Polgarus Studio Book Editor 

 "I love the exchange of books that leads to these characters meeting.There is a flowy, almost lyrical quality to the story. I feel drawn into the world." - Mary DeSantis, Book Editor

 "I was in tears whilst reading the book. I mean literal tears. In general, I liked it - well, as much as you can like a novel that makes you cry. It's odd that isn't it? Why do we like novels and movies that make us cry? 
" - Rosie, EditYourInk Book Editor   

"You've written an impressive piece of literature. This definitely reads like "serious literature" for me. It's beautifully written with a unique premise, that is to be commended. I really loved the title of the novel as well. It created intrigue in the beginning, but was quickly explained to us so we didn't end up lost in the intrigue." - Rachel Welsh 

"I wanted to turn onto the next page with each scene, which flowed effectively to the next. My hubby had to actually make me come to bed." - Christine, Reviewer

"The Name of Red is a slow burn romance that will make your heart sing and add Kabir to the list of your book boyfriends." - Sophia Isma, Book Blogger

This book is A Walk to Remember meets The Perks of being a Wallflower meets Kal Ho Na Ho.. It's got it all. Romance. Friendship. Comaraderie. Respect. Pain. Loss. Grief. - Fatima Sultana, Goodreads Review

I loved the theme of second chances-- how they're worth chasing after even if they aren't perfect-- while at the same time I love how real this book was in showing that some pain doesn't ever fully go away even when someone's around to make it better. It's a real love story. - Katia Hernandez, Goodreads Review

"I even ordered a copy of 'Brave New World', a book I've been pondering but not quite arrived at, simply because the characters mentioned it - I loved that a book could inspire me to decide to read another book simply by mentioning it! -Ruth Harwood, Goodreads Review.

This book made my quarantine bearable, as I was completely immersed in the story. I'm wondering what'll happen to me now as I'm done reading it.  If you like Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen, you'll like this book too as the story is based on second chances." - Samiya Sultana, Goodreads Review

Considering this is Beena's debut novel, I was amazed at how good this book was!" - Gracie, Goodreads Review

"You need to put this book on your reading list, you will not regret it" - Mare Wings, Goodreads Review & Author.

"The Name of Red is an intense, sexy read that drew me in immediately and didn't let go. I can tell these characters will stay with me, which is a mark of a story well told.- Jessica Mulcrone, Amazon Review.
