A book this hyped and not overrated either? The situation almost becomes impossible for their re-union but Jul 05, Ifrah Ali rated it it was amazing Shelves: The novel was like a breath of fresh air. It didn’t revolve around religion and didn’t lecture on how “achi larkiyan” should act. Carl however was my favourite character.
Adoption of kids from an orphanage is still somewhat of a taboo in our society. My favourite characters in the novel are Amarhah and Carl. I have read it before 4 to 5 years. The author has beautifully covered the discriptions and she has amazingly portrayed a real picture of Pakistan. Never read this writer before,i really enjoyed the novel!! I can guess may be because of Lady Mehar. But most of all there is friendship, and there are so many, so many hilarious moments. Amarha, hailing from Pakistan is accepted into Manchester University.
Jan 03, Saba rated it it was amazing. Each character has uniquely identifiable character trait. Logically a girl like her should be very mature, serious and focused.
I felt the last part was a bit dragged but we can ignore that just because the story was way to beautiful!
Ah, high-school dramas, college dramas, uni dramas.
Yet Amraha was a polar opposite of that. There are times when I’ve cried reading the book wondering how someone’s family could do something like that to one of their own but at the end I believe its about how courageously we face every such situation and how we emerge through it The characters in the book are very powerful and as a hamsed you will literally fall in love with each and every character.
They were all born and brought up in foreign countries, with different religious and cultural values. Want to Read saving…. One of my most favourite novels. I won’t deny I was expecting a traditional Typical Rona Dhona episide story but This Aliyan Amarha tale was enchanting and never bored me!
The actual story moved forward two lines then the writer started comparing the situation to a fairytale or something in a paragraph of poetic flowery-ness. A story of relationships in general. I got through it with barely concealed irritation. Jul 05, Ifrah Ali rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Ha,eed no words to describe his kindness, his ability to withstand the difficulties and most importantly his gift of patience.
Dumaira would have loved it if the writer had explained why he turned towards Islam.
There is one part when everybody is out for summer break, and she visits the university, and touches every corner where she has seen Aliyan in past. Every character is so perfect! And sumqira really like carl ‘The manhoos mara’: No one, read it in monthly digest. The culmination of anything is like ripping sumair the heart with a chainsaw. But still I would definitely recommend it. Things take a turn for the worse when Aliyan finds out the real reason for her rejection.
This story depicts life and unlike other writers it doesn’t depicts wumaira rich people. This book called Yaaram took me to a journey of university days and made me experience more emotions, both high and low, than any book in recent memory.
Where we build friendsh Ah, high-school dramas, college dramas, uni dramas. She is such a smart writer.

Aaliyan you were amazing. Awesome plot, Interesting characters, poetry bits were good too, hilarious written in typical Urdu digest style.
I felt myself laughing heartily like on jokes “Manchester mey saala sardi ka record tootny py Nelson Mandeli ihtejaj sumqira hoye” “Aaliaan in chaand-gari” and weeping with “so’on-so’on” on Margaret’s story and I really like this one. I went through the exact same emotional roller coaster ride with Yaaram.
Oh, my dear Carl. Loved the character of such a caring Aliyan and emotional,cute and bhooki Amraha. Yet, her friends loved her unconditionally.
Nov 06, Madiha J Bookblogger rated it it was amazing. God knows how divinely this story was narrated. This novel is now one of my favorite. I loved this book.
Their bond was strong and reading it was a pleasure. I wished for something that has the essence of Rumi, fibre knitted with the antiques that reminds one of the Persian poets, of streets of Damascus and Baghdad where knowledge once flourished, the quiddity of one feeling the scents of spices from Cairo Bazaar, listening folk music and tales of Persia and subcontinent, travelling to new lands, exploring new worlds and above all, something that touches soul.
So what are you waiting dud? A hurt-ful surprise made both of them realize that how much they love each other. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.
