Blurb: 4.5/5
Presentation: 4/5

Final Rating: 4/5

The cover is simple yet catchy and elegant, with a guy holding the hand of his love.

The title is very enticing and beautiful, such a connect of love with soul.

The blurb is the usb of this novel. I mean it’s written so well. The blurb created such an interest about the plot of the story.

The story is based on the love as well as the suffering experienced by both the main characters Siddharth and Hazel. The emotional connect between them is something which any individual can relate with.

The characterisation is really good. All the characters are so relatable, so real. What added to the story are the letters and the snippets of poetry. Such things add to the beauty of the reading experience.

The narration was adequately paced and engaging. I was awestruck by the climax, it was quite surprising.

All in all, Key to my soul is a modern day novel which has all the elements, friendship, heartbreak, love, surprise and emotions.

Looking forward to read more from the author in future.
