“You are the protagonist of your life’s story, the central character around which all the other characters and incidents occur. When the protagonist of your story changes to someone else, you are in love. That person becomes the central character of your story and everything else revolves around the person you love.”
Two strangers, one city, four days, one night, one lie and a fantastic journey. Akhil gave everything to an advertising company and got kicked out of it. He, then decides to replan everything and live on his own will and that’s when his path merges with his ‘Love at first sight’, Tamanna, who came to Mumbai for clicking some pictures and contest a competition of photography.
This tale picks up a humorous momentum around a beautiful love story but ends up pretty differently and that’s where it claims to be ‘different’.
- Humour on almost every page.
- Writing Style.
- Cover and Blurb.
- Dreams of the protagonist.
- Conversation with non-living things.
- Quick end.
It happens pretty rarely with me, that I feel thoroughly glued with the story. I want to congratulate Yash Pawaskar for this wonderful book and wonderful storyline.
Talking about the first look, I would say that the book cover and the blurb are itself very catchy and relevant with the storyline. Title seems to be strange because of the question mark (?) but believe me, that’s the whole essence of the book.
Now the writing style. Author is pretty humorous with his writing and with humour, he also knows that he is not allowed to get distracted from the main story and that’s what he did. I loved the Disclaimer which says that ‘read the book if you have good sense of humour and do not expect that you will get enlightened in the literary way after reading this book.’
Yes, it is a love story and do talk about the ‘love’ but what makes this book different from other boring ‘love stories’ is it’s way of writing, humour and the epic finale ( which changes the whole story for a moment).
Now talking about some distinguished parts which I loved a lot. Firstly the protagonist’s dreams. They were horribly funny and entertaining. Another thing is the conversation of Akhil with non-living things like his mobile, hanger, shirt, mirror etc.
The only thing which I felt a bit awkward was the quick end. This book is having an exceptional finale in it which is totally unexpected throughout the read. So according to me, when we give such immense turn while story-telling, we have to give the reader a proper time to absorb it and that’s where I felt the book was lagging. Otherwise it’s a perfect read. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Go for it for sure. I can bet that after finishing this book you will surely shout, “Holly crap! That was amazing”, and the hangover will stay on your mind forever.
