BLURB

“Aalok Sharma, a 27-year-old, chartered accountant, meets the vivacious and beautiful Priyanka Mehra, on a flight from Delhi to Mumbai. They are instantly attracted to each other, though completely opposite in nature.

However, something is holding Aalok back. Will this thing throw a spanner in his love story? Or will he be able to overcome his demons?”

MY TAKE

Cover Design: To me it looked quite funny, though a cartoon I understood that it will certainly have a story that is impressive. The cover page is not difficult to understand, it drives the point straight.

My first Impression as I read: I was happy to note that Arjun Hemmady is trying to motivate his colleagues through this book. Fictional though we learn through imagery and picturesque description of life.

Target Audience: As per my understanding the targeted audience is young adults and most specifically Chartered Accountants.

Story: The story is simple and there is nothing new to it. It doesn’t match to the expectations of what one would call literature in its true sense. Though it may be fancied by teens and young adults no doubt, as the language is down to earth and easily understandable.

Imagery: I loved the description and the imagery the author has managed to intersperse the book with. The metropolitan life is portrayed really well.

Dialogues: A bit lengthy and could be reduced to make a lasting impact.

Overall it is a very easy and light read. So take a chance and drop on this book!
