Preeti Shenoy is, officially, the first author I ever read and I was swept off my feet. Her second novel, Life is what you make it, was really a read, which I will never forget in my life. In fact, that book is the reason now I am addicted to reading... This piece of work is a masterpiece. It is so well written. Every page hooks you to it. It could be a one-go, if you a good reader, unlike me. I enjoyed each every page of the story. It takes, for you, to only read the prologue to get you hooked. The story is so unique to what I read now-a-days. The prologue runs like this. Nisha is bathing her seven month old baby boy, Rohit. She gets a call from his husband, Samir. "Our eight years old marriage is over," he says over the call, which is <i>the incident</i> of the whole story. The first half of the story deals pre-incident - how Nisha met Samir, how they fell in love - and the second half deals with the post-incident scene - how she copes up with the life... A very good page turner...
I enjoyed the book as well as the style of writing. Now a great fan of preethi shenoy books. Waiting for more from you. Also great service by infibeam. I had preordered this book and received it very soon after it released. Keep up the good work.
I enjoyed reading this book.
Tea for two and a piece of cake, plus, of course, conversation... These small moments are what make life worthwhile. The book starts in Mumbai, where the lead character Nisha-the-plump-plain-Jane lives. Her life takes an audacious turn in mesmerizing Bali leading to bizarre twist of events to happen again in Mumbai. A complete roller coaster emotional ride The aromatic and apt portrait of a middle class and high class Indian society is commendable. You will see this world through the eyes of Nisha. Get ready with your tea as she will go on and on and on There are moments when Nisha is talking to herself in her mind thats the best part¦ Not a single word is going to bore you. The characters are justified fittingly in their own way. The story is fast paced. Every chapter has something to talk about making the reader wonder what will happen next. I knew how the book will end but the writing style, the narration, and the way things happened one way or the other, kept me hooked. The language is simple. She writes in vibrant colors. Preeti righteously says, Music always adds magic to love. This unusual story has all the chapters titles with the names of the songs. I have heard some and have a vague idea about others. It did lead me to something which we call love (in a very unusual yet appreciative / obliged way). This concept will surely be cherished by all the readers.
