Table For One – Neha Bindal

If travel is free you will never see me here. I secretly wish this to be true. Travel solo is one of the items on my bucket list. 

“Quit your job, buy a ticket, get a tan, fall in love and never return”. These opening lines of the book grabbed my attention. I started reading the book. Soon I realised that this book is about a solo journey of an Indian girl. Because solo travel is a big deal for an Indian girl and more so over if she is in her thirties and unmarried. This is a story of Taara, who quits her job to go on a solo trip to Europe for a month. Her father wanted her to get married. But she wanted to live her own life. She had few boyfriends but nothing turned into a long-term relationship. Taara’s father let her go on her solo journey on one condition that she will marry after she comes back. Sounds like a sequence from Dilwale Dulhaniya Leke Jayenge (DDLJ) movie. “Ja Simran ja.. Jile apani jindagi.” The journey changed her life. It developed a confidence in her. During her stay in Europe, she makes new friends and falls in love with Fred, a German tour operator. What happens in Europe is worth reading.

book coverNeha Bindal, has written a story with great attention to details. She has perfectly described the mental condition of Taara when she was at the airport to board the flight. The characters are brought to life by describing them in great detail. Will Taara enjoy her solo travel? Will she marry Fred? Will she achieve what she is looking for? To find answers readers must read the book. I give a the score of 3.5/5.

The book is available for free on KindleUnlimited or you can buy a paperback on Amazon. This book is reviewed for Half Baked Beans. Thank you HBB
