Review: The Perfect Us Review

Durjoy Datta has always excelled at capturing love, pain, and suffering. His way of presenting the story is so deep that his stories make us cry, evoke the appropriate feeling, and hit the right note. 

His work is consistently valued, and he has a good relationship with words and the subtleties of love. He creates a wonderful world through his writing skills, and somewhere in there, he incorporates elements of his own life. 

Durjoy always plays with words subtly, leaving no evidence of unfulfillment. The Indianness that permeates all of his stories is one of his distinctive writing styles.

Durjoy Datta's book "THE PERFECT US'' is the most heartwarming tale I've ever read. And, this book introduced me to Durjoy's writing. It is a tribute to enduring love and the sacrifices made in pursuit of that objective.

Deb and Avantika's tale of bubbling romance is undoubtedly a compelling one with well-developed characters and a flawless tale. 

Story of The Perfect Us

The storyline of this book is Avantika, an investment banker who is equally good at math and attracting guys' attention.

She is the picture of beauty with intelligence and does fairly well in her career.

She meets Deb in college and develops a romantic interest in him. They never expected to be a couple, yet they nonetheless fell deeply in love with each other.

About Deb, he is a former corporate employee who now writes scripts for ordinary daily shops after failing badly as a writer. He doesn't have a great physique, and day by day his financial situation is also getting worse.

He excels at one thing in good - loving Avantika. And Avantika actually requires that. 

They have been together for ten years, against all odds, and have done well so far. But that will change. 

Deb is simply not ready, while Avantika has recently been craving children. However, Deb was thinking that the two of them are perfect and there is no space for anyone else in their life.

In The Perfect Us book, two people get ready for the next step of their lives and prepare for the difficulties that will come with it.

While they plan and get ready, fate has something else in store for them, and before long, all of their preparations will be for naught.

In the beginning, they both were just a married couple. They both were deeply in love with each other. The couple desired to advance in their lives by taking a step. 

Due to the serious problems they encountered both before and after getting pregnant, it turned out to be a pivotal point. 

The plot is set in a very normal background where the couple's life is going normally. But what sets it apart is how emotions are depicted. 

This book shows great micro details and also discusses connections between people in general.

What can you expect from the book?

A work of contemporary fiction called The Perfect Us falls short of its promises. You would understand exactly what I mean if you read the book.

The blurb presents an entirely different picture than what the actual content of the story is.

The story revolves around a married couple who desire to move on to the next phase of their lives by becoming parents. 

It talks about the difficulties and problems faced by prospective parents. It also talks about the major changes that inevitably occur in a marriage or relationship after ten long years.

What is the ending of The Perfect Us Book? (Climax Without Spoiler)

Even though the story was predictable, the way it ended was satisfactory, I must say. The story of Deb and Avantika reached a perfect conclusion at the climax. 

However, I don't want to give you any spoilers about the ending of this book, I can say that the book finished happily. So you can expect that at the end the couple's (Deb and Avantika) life gets better, the perfect Happy Ending. 


We were truly able to learn through this book that there is perfection within every one of our flaws. Although we strive for perfection our entire lives, we never realize that perfection has always been a part of us. 

While there are countless romance fairy tales that will show you everything as pink and perfect as Disneyland, The Perfect Us digs deeper and shows reality. 

This is a fiction book and still, you can feel the real-life issues that every couple face. Especially while taking their important life decisions. 

This one has everything you could possibly want to read about. From getting married to eventually getting married and preparing to have a child, both characters have come a long way.

A perfect book for you:

  1. If you enjoy reading modern books.
  2. If you're tired of reading old college and office love stories. 
  3. If you like reading something fresh.
  4. If you are keen to know about life after marriage.
  5. if you're interested in learning about the challenges of parenthood, from having children to raising them.
  6. If you're a fan of Durjoy Datta.

This book is not for you:

  1. If you are looking for just entertaining romantic books.
  2. If you want an amazing story with great twists and turns. 
  3. If you're interested in looking at noteworthy Indian literature.
