Best moment to read book: when you are all alone in the room with no one to distract and no one to call you. It tremendously pain to be all alone, with roommate on vacation, left alone in echoing room with all neighboring rooms empty. But I am used to such loneliness and I never let it eat me. I try to live, fully. I read endless and write best during those hours.
It gave me different pleasure to read a book signed by the author. I felt honored to receive an author-signed copy. I am a slow reader. I finish a novel in a week or so. But I am amazed that I finished this novel by Preeti Shenoy in a sitting. Every chapter hooked me, and I couldn’t help but keep turning the pages.
Book Review: It is a novel written in first person point of view. In present tense. And in between, it slips back to the past days using flash back technique until the story reach back to present. It is written in lucid and simple language, unlike Chetan Bhagat, it reads great with profundity of language. And recommendable read for anyone looking to read a book with profound language by the contemporary Indian fiction writer. Scenes and characters are described meticulously, giving you the perfect picture.
It is a story about Vipasha Mishra, friends call her Vee. She falls in love at first sight with Ankush during her trip to Kerala with her friends. Though she was not sure of her feelings. Soon, their relationship escalates, and she becomes pregnant. Ankush doesn’t want baby but she wants. Then, series of turbulences unfold. Get thrown out from home. She become single mother and struggles for her living, and grows up with her son, Aryan. Ankush and Vee never meet for sixteen years until one day, Aryan decides to meet Ankush as he is his father. Do you think Ankush will come back to Vee? And will she accept him after sixteen years of no-contact? Not even in mail.
I would keep it to you all to answer it.

If you pick up the book, you won’t regret. It is worth the price, and unlike those cheesy contemporary languages of Indian writers, it is written in good language.
This is the first novel I finished at one-sitting. I felt overwhelmed and awe-struck for I did it!
By the way it is 261 pages long novel!
