4.0 out of 5 stars Because maybe, The Reason Is You.
By Zorini Lungṭau on 19 February 2019
Narrated from a male's perspective, this book explores the world of depression through a character Akriti and of Siddhant's journey in dealing with the person affected by this disease and the disease itself.
It's an interesting story, engaging, rightly paced and beautifully articulated in lovely prose.

I honestly think the writer did justice to the character Akriti because the incidents she made it happen evoke all kinds of feelings you needed to feel; annoyance, disgust, anger, sympathy, understanding, compassion, and acceptance. The feelings you'd have felt had it been a real-life situation you were a part of.

There were moments like 'What the, what the actual fl*wer!, Finally! , Finally! 2.0, Hahaha, Can we bury this person already?, Okay, I officially hate white rose now' moments and I enjoyed the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful storyline, touching plot and a masterful storytelling.....
By Siddhant Agarwal on 6 March 2019
Telling the tale of Siddhant and Maahi after the events of Like a Love Song, Nikita Singh’s latest offering The Reason is You is a tale of how certain events in life affect us and those around us.
It is not just a simple story of how emotions play with our behavior, it delves deep into human psyche and brings out the raw emotions of us, of what makes us human. The story deals with the concept of mental health and depression, of how certain events in our lives have the power to completely alter our lives as we know them. It is also a story of how important it is to have a support system-family & friends and how asking for help is a better option. However, it also touches upon the fact that people why need professional help should not shy away from it.

Another topic it touches upon is the fragile concept of second chances. The story of Siddhant, Akriti and Maahi, all are based on second chances that they gave to life and to the people they love.

The characters are tightly woven and convey the message very sharply. While reading the book, you can imagine Siddhant talking to Akriti, assuring her, dealing with different emotions, fighting emotions. You can almost feel the pain of Akriti, her pang of sadness and her change of behavior through out the story. Last but not the least, Maahi and Priyesh are the characters that bring the story home. It is them who make the story truly life like.

P.S. the character of Akriti’s mother is a complete surprise.

All in all, a wonderful read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A light read
By Mahalakshmi Venkatesh on 7 May 2019
The reason is you, penned by Nikita Singh, tells the story of Siddhant and akriti, and how their lives changes when akriti gets struck by a loss and he has to take care of her. The sequel to like a love song and every time it rains, the book is narrated from Siddhant's perspective.

I have been waiting to read the book for a while and I enjoyed reading it too. I fell in love with Siddhant. He's a thorough gentleman. It's very rare to read a book from male's perspective that doesn't portray women as the object of lust. While I could understand akriti, I couldn't really sympathise with her. Because her background was not established thoroughly and all we could gather about her was from her conversations and not direct instances, I couldn't really feel for her. Depression is a serious issue, I understand. I have been there, done that. There were days where getting out of the bed seemed impossible, where all I had wanted to do was to just lay in bed and stare in darkness... so I could see myself in akriti's shoes. But many situations are highly exaggerated and I found akriti unreasonable. Her behaviour is mostly based on stereotypes when in reality it's different. Almost three fourth of the book is consumed to describe her condition and behaviour while her recovery is not well written. Many of the problems in the book could have been resolved if she and Siddhant had a real conversation or if she had consulted a therapist soon. The reason she doesn't consult one isn't justified. For those who haven't read every time it rains and like a love song, Maahi's characterisation may seem weak. The author could have could have given her more depth. She has been a favourite character of mine, and I was happy for her happy ending.

The language employed by the author is simple and easy. Her writing style is smooth and the pace ia moderate. Unlike the author's other works, it doesn't take to take pace. The title seemed a little off. The cover is gorgeous and attractive.
Overall a light read.
