Book Review:

A good book is a book that has those elements which engage the readers from the first page of the book till the end. The good writing in this book, Fate or Destiny by Author Arthy helps readers to gel with the story’s characters and immediately transport them to the places of happening. The development and progress of a character are written elegantly. The story doesn’t have unwanted drama and boring scenes. Apart from the positives, I usually dislike spoon-feeding to the readers with every detail explained. This could have been avoided. Other than this, the book is an absolute treat.

What I like:

1. The plot
2. The characters
3. The language and the narration
4. Mention mental health issues, and it’s repercussions.
5. A good combination of romance, fantasy, fun, and life lessons.

What I didn’t like:

There is not much that I haven’t liked in the story, but a more explanation of the mental health issues could have added depth to the characters and the scenes.


The story’s central character is Kavin, who is also the protagonist. As the blurb of Fate or Destiny says, he is a tourist guide, and the story is set up in Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Though he is young, his past keeps haunting him. He is a victim of PTSD, and with his phobia towards the water, his nights are quite different and unexpected. The story also has a few other male and female characters woven around Kavin and helps the story move forward.

In short, every character in the story has their own space, strength, and scope.


This is the heart of any book. A novel might have a great story and characters, but it all depends on how the story is narrated. In Fate or Destiny, Arthy has done a good job. As the book is a combined plot of main elements like antsy and fiction, the story flows smoothly, and every scene narrated is realistic yet has a fun and fantasy element. Each chapter has a surprise component.

Language & Grammar:

The language in the story used is simple and accessible to readers of all ages. The grammar and the vocabulary in the story also align with the general literary standards. There are elements of romance, fantasy, and psychology written in the subtle language. Literary standards are mentioned because many new-age authors resort to casual conversational language, which is a big no-no while writing a book. In this book, the language used is a perfect bookish language!

Final Verdict:

Interesting story with an unusual plot!
