Anna Todd is an American author who rose to fame with her After book series, which garnered a massive following on Wattpad. The novel begins with Tessa resigned to the fact that she had lost Sudar, the man she had always loved.
She has moved on, but Sudar still holds a special place in her heart. However, when Sudar walks back into her life years later, Tessa’s feelings are rekindled, and she is forced to confront her unresolved feelings towards him.
Sudar, on the other hand, is still struggling with his own demons, which have prevented him from moving on. The setting of the novel is primarily in New York, where both Sudar and Tessa reside.
The story explores the contrast between their former life together as carefree young adults and their current reality. The plot is driven by their struggle to resolve their past issues to build a future together.
The central conflict is between their love for each other and the challenges that keep them apart. There is no cultural or historical significance attached to this book other than the fact that it deals with the struggles of young people living in a fast-paced and uncertain world.
The writing style of Anna Todd is simple yet engaging. The novel is well-paced and has a smooth plot progression.
The characters are relatable and well-developed, especially Sudar and Tessa. Anna Todd has also done an excellent job of capturing the ups and downs of a relationship, which lends an air of realism to the novel.
However, the novel suffers from some weaknesses. There are times when the dialogue feels forced, and some scenes are unnecessarily repetitive.
Also, the secondary characters feel underdeveloped, which makes it difficult to connect with them. Overall Sudar by Anna Todd is an enjoyable read that is hard to put down.
It is well-suited for fans of New Adult fiction who enjoy romance, drama, and relationship issues. The novel is not without flaws, but its strengths outweigh its weaknesses.
I would give it a rating of 4/5, with my only critique being the limited development of some of the secondary characters. Nonetheless, it is a well-crafted novel that I would recommend to anyone looking for an engaging and heartfelt read.
