“Truth is everybody is going to hurt you; you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for.” This actually summarizes the relationship factor. The Last Surge is a brilliant tale by Pramit Sarkar which actually travels around different relations and make you feel the true sense of being a human.

The story is about Gabriel Hopkins and Rimi Chakraborty. They fall in love with each other in very strange circumstances. Gabriel was at first was reluctant but soon realized his love for Rimi. Soon the story takes up a U-Turn with the death of Rimi’s only guardian, his uncle. She was forced to marry according to her family and that made Gabriel and Rimi part away.

Gabriel falls in love once again, this time with his daughter Sneha. His life started to shape around her only. Sneha was not his own daughter but he never made her realize the same. After years, Sneha got to know about her father’s story. She decided to make them meet again. The beauty and beast, both lies in the climax of the story. Something unexpected awaits the reader at the end.

The writing style of the author is brilliant. He knows how to play with words and is having great command on expressions and relationships. The book is surely a great read.

Now the drawbacks of the book. The climax was abrupt; could have been better. Another thing is sometimes, the author gets lost in detailing and the usage of metaphors makes it a bit difficult to relate for a normal reader.
