Wrinkles by Mian Mohsin Zia is a story of a deeper kind of love, one that stands the test of time. Here the message is about the love that makes a family. Xavier, a young man, has a great love for his mother and God. This story is thought provoking. The mother-son relationship is endearing. It had me reflecting on the role of a mother and the significance of her role within the family. Xavier has the kind of mother who gives him unconditional love and he is grateful for her gift, yet he is pursuing another kind of love to fulfill his dreams.
He falls in love with Anna, a woman who seems distant and unattainable. He only becomes more obsessed and persistent with gaining her love. In pursuit of his love, Xavier is supported by his best friend, Faisal. Xavier and Faisal share a one-of-a-kind friendship which adds value to the book and makes it even more special. All through the story, I was rooting for Xavier to find his love. The story unfolds as Xavier, his mother, and Anna will encounter yet another person who will need the power of unconditional love that only these three strong individuals can give.
The book cover is striking and depicts the main character in the most important role in the story. Mian’s books relay a message to readers that makes them unforgettable. A bonus is the addition of poems that are reflective of the character’s feelings. Mian Mohsin Zia writes with a passion as he creates three-dimensional characters. You can’t help but feel as though they are your friends. The dialogue seems very real and at times I felt as though I was right there in the story. The events will pull at your heartstrings, evoking emotions as you are turning pages to see how this story will unfold. This is a smooth read as all the chapters blend well and clarity is evident within the story. Wrinkles is a very powerful book that everyone should read.
