    I am sitting here writing this review with a very heavy heart Umera Ahmed is one of my favourite authors of all time and yet she has written something that falls just short of a complete waste of time Yes this is a flame review, so beware Zaroon lovers, I am about to seriously bash him The only way I can begin to describe Zindagi Gulzar Hai is by saying that it is a sad excuse of a book that presents apologetic excuses for women to believe that their abuse by men is normal It seems to suggest th [...]

    Main Theme Zindagi Gulzar Hai revolves around Kashaf Murtaza and Zaroon Junaid who were diametric to each other in everything Kashaf was querulous about everything that happens to her but refused to give up on her antecedents.Good Things The novel focuses on trust in God and putting efforts when antecedents are against you Relationships often require compromises and sacrifices Without it, neither life is a blessing nor it brings joy.Bad Things Asmara s character was weak and wasn t concluded pro [...]


    It was a pointless story with way too many flaws This is the first story by Umera Ahmed that I was completely disappointed and kept waiting maybe something worthwhile will happen


    I recently read another novel by the writer and reading in Urdu is fun so I decided to go ahead with the second one I had on my shelf by the same author To say the least, the story disappointed me.Let me begin by giving you a rough idea of what the story is about there are two lead characters, Zaroon and Kashaf with very cliched qualities and the story is a love story gahh Zaroon GCU student doing M.A in Int l Relations who is blessed with a great academic record and is arrogant read pompous foo [...]

    Life is the name of Ups an Downs We shouldn t blame Allah in hard time like we do__ me, you and mostly people And in time of happiness we just enjoy time to death forgetting its from Allah and we need to thank Him in a proper way Real Muslims people are those who believe in Allah at every time Love marriages are good but they lack that interesting thing which arrange marriages have.The LOVE which grows between two people knowing its true and so write, is always so strong deep though it has so co [...]

    On the surface it seems that this book may not have a great story or plot however I thoroughly enjoyed reading about how the characters grew and matured over the course of the book I think this is a good read for those of us who can appreciate that sometimes we should read about real life down to earth things rather than always need a grand story with a great climactic point and conflicts and resolution It was like reading the diaries of two real people who I fell in love with while reding Defin [...]


    I think this probably one of those very few times where I say the screen adaption was better than the book, way better The drama had a couple of issues sure but overall it was enjoyable The book Not so much Prose wise it s acceptable, the story however was dissapointing in all aspects whether it was the themes, the characterisatons or the flow of events Would not read it again Hopefully Umera Ahmed s other books are better


    Umera Ahmed is to0 good This was the secod novel of her that I read I was inclined to read it after watching two or so episodes of the serial made on it as I had to satisfy my curiousity I have to say that I was expecting abot of drama in it.At the end I was like ,Now,Now,Now something exciting would happen but it never did Nonetheless, learned some lessons about life Short and sweet


    Kashaf should have opened the Quran, read it and tried understanding it _ True, in the end she understood all these were trials from ALLAH but still she never looked to Allah for help, rather tried doin it all her self KhairLOVED the way it s written through diary entriess

    I personally don t like this nOvel much.The plot is very weak


    First things first The book is just a series of diary entries by Zaroon and Kashaf The story line is different from the television series Reading this book has reinforced my view about Umera Ahmad being an over rated writer The storyline lacks punch and innovation Moreover, the character development leaves a lot to be desired Kashaf started off as a self sufficient, impulsive and strong headed woman and by the end of this laborious journey she was reduced to the role of a pawn in her husband s h [...]


    There were total of three short stories blended in a book but one was enough Zindagi Gulzar HaiWhat an amazing thing to spend some exotic time it was so beautiful and thought provoking that it just made you fall in love with it the characters were so clearly shown that everything was terrific The credit goes to the production wait a sec are we not talking about the Pakistani soap opera My bad So let me blend some thoughts on the book by Umera Ahmad which was her first ever story, it was so terri [...]


    Another wonderful and amazingly written book by extraordinary talented Umera Ahmed masha ALLAH, I have no words to explain how much I adore her books This book explains the hardship of a young woman who has not much in her life but good character and intelligence , Umera has shown the readers what treasure one can be if they do have moral values and quality of goodness, not to forget the role of a family in all of it.

    Read an Urdu novel after AGES Although, this wasn t Umera Ahmed s best work but still it was an enjoyable read I was very surprise to find out all the dissimilarities between the tv serial s plot and the original storyline Serial s Zaruun is way likeable than the novel s, but realistic.

    Shemonti Hasan

    This is one of the best books I ve ever read I loved the characters and their development throughout the novel Kashaf as a protagonist is brilliant and many of the South Asian readers can relate to her struggles and accomplishments Lastly, I found did not find any plot holes in the story and absolutely loved this book.


    Oh this novel is so bad when compared with it s drama because it has some awful characters and some really disturbing scenes but it s a bit understandable because it was her debut novel I am extremely happy that umera ahmed changed her writing style and also decided to change the novel and convert it into a masterpiece for the purpose of drama.

    Amna Salam

    my first ever um era Ahmed novel read it as part of school curriculumough I enjoyed reading it there weren t any memorable dialogues and the plot was not anything uniqueunlike her other brilliant novels at the end of the day it was just a story


    If you have watched the drama first, then you wouldn t enjoy reading it The novel is too short.e other stories are nice

    Nazish Islam

    I was disappointed to read Still cant believe How Umera Ahmed could write such pointless, baseless ridiculous love story It was hard to believe it is same writer who wrote Amar bail and Peer E Kamil SAWW.

    Indrani Sen

    Did not like the book the TV adaptation was way better It was difficult to grasp why the characters did what they did Found it jumpy and slightly non coherent Not recommended I read an english translation available in wattpad the translation is decent.

    Kashif Mir

    one of the best novels i have ever read


    good novel very well written the atmosphere of our society


    This is one of the first novels written by Umaira Ahmed And certainly not as good as the ones that came later.Drama was pathetic, though Umaira rewrote it for dramatization.
