It is the 1st book of preeti shenoy and it touched my heart. If you are looking for entertainment and crap love stories then you wont like it.
Want to rest, or go on vacation or on a journey den go for it. Pooja Navale Sep, Its well written , short stories about interesting incidents of life. It's pretty down to earth close to one's personal life.. The author has written many small stories of various incidents of daily life. Worth reading.. Book is well narrated but no need to publish those small things and name it as a novel.
Go for "Life is what you make it" that's exactly opposite this one. Quite interesting and feel good finally :. I became a fan of her after reading her book " life is what you make it". Well, the above review title is lil modified version of a line taken from this book: Actuaul line in the book is: "'Oh my god'-summarizes most reactions! Many call the author as 'anology queen'. I read her second book 'Life is what you make it' at first and then this one.
It had certain incidents of the author's life, that common people can replicate to. It had that "Feel-Good" effect on me. The stories said here r having a modern outlook that ppl of our age can fully enjoy its essence This book is about hope, love and all those lovely feelings related to dese.. It will not be waste.
Ishani Mondal Mar, The author is caught somewhere between writing a small stories book or a personality development book. The chapters are sweet read, but not impactful. You forget about it after half an hour. I will recommend this book to new readers or teenagers. Its not a mature read. Well its a collection of short stories of the author's own life. I found around stories quiet good to read. They were really nice.
They were nice because in our lives too short incidents happen anyday, anytime. Just a one shot read. I dint find that much interesting to read once again. Vinika Garg Certified Buyer Nov, Questions and Answers.
