I am being a procrastinating princess for some long. I have quite a lot of books to review, so here it goes, the first book for this month, a romance novel by Aditi Bose.
Ajopa Ganguly is a girl in her twenties who lives with her parents in Delhi. Her life is fine except for one tiny problem. All publishers have rejected the manuscript that she has very painstakingly written. She believes it’s more because she is not a known celebrity rather than because the plot is not appealing enough. She is so disturbed by this that she has been baking cupcakes and embroidering handkerchiefs instead these days. This is when Aniket Verma re-enters her life. He is a professor of economics who is well known in his circle. He’s twelve years older to Ajopa. They had been good friends till a misunderstanding happened five years back.
What happens when they meet again is what the story is all about.
Stri’s Take On It:
This is a story of a girl from Kolkatta who moves into Delhi. She develops a crush on her Economics tutor. After sometime, they part ways, only to meet years later. Also, the protagonist writes a novel, which gets rejected by all the places where she tries. Finally, is everything ends happily or is it a tragedy forms the rest of the story.
- There was a couple of twists in the story, which made the book quite interesting.
- The language she used is very simple.
- It was a quite a small book; it doesn’t drag much.
- The narration is quite good and interesting.
- It was yet another monotonous romance novel.
- The climax was very rushed. The epilogue was unnecessary. The first 20 pages were too dragging. In short, the author needed a better editor.
Do I recommend? No. However, if you prefer to read stereotypical romance on a train journey, then why not? This is a really short book.
