When I first heard of it’s publication I was overcome by a sense of ambivalence; a part of me was excited to know what she had in store for the readers as a sequel for almost everyone’s favourite novel but at the same time a part of me was scared that it might not live up to the standards set by its prequel. It was just so opposite to the first one which pulled me in and did’t let my interest waver. Mar 14, Sunny rated it really liked it. But Aab-e-Hayat transcends that, it’s a neatly and deftly woven tapestry of interconnected stories, people, and timelines. It all revolved around the 2nd plot. I loved the book: Jun 04, Mi Mi rated it it was amazing Shelves: Return to Book Page.

Novel – Aab-e-Hayat Episode 8 By Umera Ahmed – Read Online | Urdu Novels
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. It was very cool that Saad finally had his redemption after and through another generation.
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. I am going to write what I felt, my truth, the good and the bad. It has pulled me towards realizing what ”eternal life” in the ”hereafter” means, what ”Jannah” means!
The descriptions of intelligence were a bit over the top. There end was sort of abrupt and weak.
This lady never disappoints! Overall, it was very typical stuff with Salar’s brain tumor, Humain’s narrow escape, Chunni’s adoption and everything that could go right for one family!
Insan ke nafs ko cheezein pasand hote hain woh pehle kar leta hai aur jo Allah ko pasand hota hai woh baad ke liye chor deta hai A fitting sequel but, obviously, not better than the first age.
Umera reae the Western society quite accurately and I was really impressed with the CIA breaking the engaged couple apart, it really was amusing as much as it was clever and accurate. Fantastic art… Hope fully next part will be more interesting. However she left the job a few years back in onkine to devote her full attention to writing.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. Jun 05, Seher Alvi rated it did not like it. Maybe one day I’ll read it again, but possibly not. The answer cannot be that simple.
For me this is all very ahme from Umama who fell in love with Jalal after hearing his ‘Naat’. But everything aside, this novel lost its magic because it looses the the ishq e Haqiqi aspect.
Aab-e-Hayyat by Umera Ahmed – Episode 19
She b Umera Ahmed is one of the most widely-read and popular Urdu fiction novelist and screenplay writer of this era.
For me Peer-e-Kamil ended with Salaar and Imama’s reunion. May 06, Neha Najam rated it really liked it. I thought it will be as good as peer e kamil but was very disappointed. Maybe because he was the only kid who was shown umsra to Imama maybe even her favorite child 5.
There is no continuation of characters as in their personalities are poles apa I wanted to give this book 1 star but only gave it 2 because the last pages were good since those were the ones that were not about the two main protagonists. 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.
His genious children Humain especially brought a lighter note to the story. It presented a frightening side of our society, I was scared for myself. I just cannot bring myself to understand how, even once, can Salar act indifferent like that, so soon after he finally has got the love of his life in his life. The story of Saad’s Salar’s friend from Yale’s days family was a cautionary tale for me. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
