But, what I think would have been poetic justice and more realistic, even if I agree with Umera’s vision for her character as well was for Salar to have succumbed to disease and for Imama specially and his children, the boys and the girls, to carry on his legacy. Did skip story of their adopted daughter a few pages Going to reread the book after Ramadan Happy Ramadan. It’s hard but I am going to try to be very sincere with my review, and it is going to offend like I was offended by the book many a time. The reason why this book failed to live up to my expectations was primarily that after Peer-e-Kamil as a reader I had raised my bar of expectations too high. Now in her place is a women who is weak, feels she is useless, is insecure and dependent, always in need of approval from Salar and cries A LOT. I loved how Umera was willing to talk about the horrors and the dark side of our society, it was a bold step using almost the exact harsh and curse words, to tell the truth. Too good to be believable plot. I have my compliments and appreciation as well as my issues and concerns which I AM going to give rant to but my honest opinion is that Umera has outdone herself.

However, the most disappointing part of the story was the climax, ‘Turp ka Patta’ Life which is continued with new challenges. View all 7 comments. What did you think of this episode? Then she finds out that she is a misfit in the society that Salaar spends his time in. No, I think english readers especially my brother who cannot read urdu like this would love to have this story in an English form. I liked the book but I cannot say I loved the book because I did not. When we came to know it was an extension of “Peer e Kamil”, the way writer carried the novel is questionable. I am unable to understand what is wrong with Imama?


I highly admire Umerah’s concerns regarding each and every small and big topic she has brought into lime light, in almost rushing a manner she wanted to cover all those things which i feel are a pain of her chest.

Q and they actually prepared for contest but for Humain they were no challenge at all The plot has gotten so much better, I have got to say. I went into slumps due to this and then I put it aside. I love reading books and comics. That strong, resourceful and independent girl is lost somewhere in between PK and AH.

I think he is his son. Yes, it was a bit fantasized, especially the male characters and q bit too draggy in the first half but after you finish half of it, it’s a page turner.

Umera Ahmed has rocked once again by authoring this beautiful Urdu novel Aab-e-Hayat. A true depiction of endless and blind faith in Allah.

I’m still not sure about the end because it was very ambiguous and left a lot of questions unanswered. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here Jun 21, Natasha rated it it was ok.

آبِ حیات (Aab-e-Hayat) (Peer-e-Kamil, #2) by Umera Ahmed

The book version has so many parts missing!!! Seems a little judgemental and needs more thinking and exploration into the heart of the matter.

Who are ready to fight the oppressive world and keen to establish a pure islamic society and financial system. Books by Umera Ahmed. It would have been better with teview included, regarding his work in SIF. Romanticising male chauvinistic behavior 5. The best part is Dr. The feelings went from curiosity to irritation to jealousy to envy and finally to love. This is one amazing transition from curiosity to love.

You got the woman you loved as a blessing from Allah. The characters in the story are just as much humans as we are and so is the author so a little margin should be given to everyone. If you have a theory about it, do share it with me. A very very important read at a very important stage in my life. Problem is I’ve read and liked such novel where only plot revolve around the love life of two main leads but what’s really off hayxt in this love story is a its boring and b the character of Umama.


Rveiew does that meant? She not only read these but cherish all of her books as well, and while reading places herself as female lead and Jalal as male lead, no wonder she is messed-up in the upper department. Story and Characters lost their connection with Allah, Umama more so that other.

It was refreshingly unconventional. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.
