Voicemates looked like a really cute and sweet read and that is one of the reasons I wanted to read it. Plus I had the pleasure of meeting the author, Anamika Mishra, in person and I have to say that she is very sweet and down to earth as a person. I think anyone who enjoys reading a light read which is Indian fiction would enjoy reading VoiceMates.
VoiceMates is the story of Tulip. Tulip was a really sweet heroine. She was so innocent and naive and it was a nice change reading about such a character. Tulip has a passion for music but she is too scared of her parents and society in general to go ahead and do anything with her beautiful voice. That is until she meets Sam.
Sam is the one who encourages Tulip to take part in the VoiceMates competition. I didn't like Sam very much as I thought that his mood swings were really weird. He didn't really give reasons for his behaviour and I found him a bit irritating. But more than Sam the book is Tulip's journey towards discovering herself and gaining confidence in herself.
The entire book takes us through the reality show which is VoiceMates. I have seen a few singing shows on TV so it was easy for me to imagine what it would be like for Tulip and Sam and the entire cast and crew of VoiceMates. It was an emotional ride with the drama and the ups and downs.
Surprisingly, for me, the ending was the best part even though it is not what you would have expected. I loved the little twist we got and how the book ended with hope. Life is not full of roses and Tulip learns that by the end and she still believes that she'll be okay by the end of it. I think that's what was important and what mattered the most. VoiceMates was a sweet read for me.
