An interesting book! I liked Kanika Sud's chapter about how she sees intimacy most. It is a brief, beautiful letter that leaves you wanting to hear more and more of what she has to say. This letter, titled Unravelling Intimacy, has the strange effect of pulling you into the experience of wanting to unravel more about the author herself! Good read.

This book is like a sea. The unsent letters are like waves. You feel like you watching one wave after another. You can visualize the pain, happiness, anger, optimism, gratitude. Any emotion: you name it, you will find it. That's the best thing about this book. Especially the letters that are addressed to people who are in gone are the most touching ones. Whether it is written to the grandmother or to a school teacher who had a deep impact. You instantly feel connected to such letters. As a whole the book is more than sum of its parts. It is like a reflection of an inner world which rarely gets recorded. Admiration and respect for all the women who sent these unsent letters.

It's a really interesting book! I am aroace, and I liked Kanika Sud's part in particular because I could relate whatever she wrote to platonic love as well. Intimacy need not be romantic or sexual.
