Book Review for: Invisible Ties by Nadya A.R.

It usually takes me around 10 days to finish a good book, and a whole month to finish a boring one, there’s no in between. But it took me only about a week to finish Invisible Ties, I think you can figure out already on how much I genuinely liked this book.

I found Invisible Ties to be a very beautiful and a very sophisticated novel. Every word, every sentence had unfathomable meanings, most of which made me think. It made me think about the things I never usually thought seriously about. It made me think about the elite society that we heedlessly consider to be in a privileged position yet never give a second thought about them being possibly caged in their world of being picture-perfect.

There are so many things I want to say about the female lead, Noor. But words cannot describe how much I admired her and her courage in every situations and decisions she made. She was a like a superhero without any magical powers even though she struggled in every step of her journey, especially after she left her hometown.

All the vivid descriptions about cities, architectures and delicious meals made me wish to visit all those countries described in the book myself.

My favorite quote: “Pain has so boundaries and suffering has no borders.

I will give Invisible Ties a 4 out of 5 stars.

About the book: As Karachi burned in the 1990s, the painfully shy Noor Kamal found refuge in an antique jade mirror stolen from Daisy, her social butterfly mother. One fateful day, the violence hits home as a motley crew of burglars storm the Kamal residence, killing Joseph, the faithful driver who tried to shield Noor and kidnapping Daisy in the process.

Traumatized by the turn of events and succumbing to familial pressure, Noor reluctantly agrees to start life afresh in Singapore as the wife of Meekaal Kalim, an investment banker. Trapped in a loveless marriage, Noor finds succour in studying psychotherapy.

A saga of love and trials, against a rich contrasting background, Invisible Ties is sure to appeal to the readers.
