Rewind and Play by Tarun Gautam is an amazing book which takes us back to memories of college days.

The plot of this novel is quite different and unique as it rare to find such stories, where Raghav Diwan, is set to meet his college friends in a reunion after getting fired from his great job, it’s about rewinding back the clock to the good old days, you shall find out rest by reading the book.

Each and every character is beautifully written and has their roles to play, narration is just amazing which makes it a pacy read. It surely made me think how lightly we allow our college days to finish.

The story may be suitable to certain people who love such genre, but I just expected bit more into the story to make it a more gripping read.

The cover is surely catchy and title is suitable to the plot.
Nonetheless, it is surely a book to read if you want to rewind your college life.


I will rate it ⭐⭐⭐⭐
