Happy Saturday Everyone! Please check out my review of the exciting read Before Time (The Time Trilogy Book 1) by Xunaira J.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
As a thirteen year old teenager, Xunaira J. aspired to be an author someday. From short stories to novellas, she has written them all but as an adult now, she has published two short stories and has now published her first Novel, Before Time, released in November. Xunaira resides in Islamabad, Pakistan and enjoys a hot cup of cappuccino, a good romance novel and her favorite music from the 80’s. Apart from that, when she’s not working on her current literary project, she loves developing mobile applications and studies as a software engineer.
His eyes told her what his tongue could not.
Nineteen-year-old Onaiza Shahid is a loner and a dreamer, bookish and socially isolated. A chance ramble into a chatting software changes everything. The words of a stranger compel her. Addicted and falling fast, their secret love changes her life. But will the idealistic teenager get her happily ever after?
Before Time (The Time Trilogy Book 1) follows the evolution of an Internet Romance between a young woman called Onaiza and a man online. Onaiza is a young woman that lives in a society where traditions rule and she is not allowed to freely make choices that affects her life. She also is not happy with her appearance, and ‘real life’ relationships. So she sinks deeper into a virtual world. There she meets a young man and they speak freely, openly and bond. So their relationship grows deeper and crosses the line to something possibly “more”. But then the young man disappears and Onaiza is left hurt and confused…
I believe this is a timely read that anyone who straddles the virtual world with that of the real could understand. The story speaks of the allure to be free and whomever they wish to be, not to have restrictions and those things in society to interfere. Ms. Javed has done an excellent job of bringing that world to light and showing the evolution of a new type of love (Virtual Love) and communication that can be exhilarating and also devastating because of its fragility.
The book is well written, innovative, and intriguing to read the conversation between the two— seeing so clearly the emotions and lines crossed.
I am thoroughly looking forward to the next book in the series and I highly recommend to those that are looking forward to a unique concept romance. The book, I believe will soon move to the status of must read for this new generation!! Awesome!
