I liked the starting and the way author created the suspense. I kept guessing the reason and was proved wrong at the end. Its very well written and is also a lesson for people who try to commit suicide. It tells you how important is your life and its very easy to enjoy it. All depend on you how you move forward. There will be situations in your life when you are highly frustrated but its all part of life. In book she got the doctor but in real life you get someone and you dont even realize to thank her for saving your life. Author described the kind of pain in stomach, its very much similar to a guilt feel or a kind of frustration which we feel when things are not in our favor or when some betray us or even you betray someone for a selfless reason. I liked the way author portrays the feeling of a person to damage her body to get rid of the mental pain. Its a must read. Hats off to Preeti Shenoy --Ravi Soni Aug 29, 2011

I LOVE THIS BOOK
All the best
Many errors found, bad print quality...
Total waste of money... I regret why i hadn't brought "Sapiens by Yuval Harari" earlier.
The title of the book is self-explanatory. Life is full of ups and downs. Some people tend to get depressed because of the small struggle they face in their life. But on other hand there are also people who stand like a wall and face every situation comes in their way & make way out of it. Thus, you are only responsible for the way you want to spend your life.
Specially recommended to one who is suffering from down phase of life.
The author has described many issues that everyone faces in their lives.
What I love about the initial part is the 90's plot setting. When there were no mobile phones and how people specially lovers used to communicate. It's just leaves me in awe.
Also the author has described that everyone faces ups and downs, some take it in a positive way and keep moving forward while some think it's the end of the world and choose to commit suicide.
Then there comes the guilt part, the pressure that we face in order to excel in everything and the things we unintentionally do that hurt someone and it keeps on building up and up and one day it drowns us completely.
The author has took up a very important social issue, bipolar depression which has become very common now a days and people still are not willing to talk about it.
But what fascinates me the most is, life is actually what you make it. Because if you've the will to live life to the fullest would it be with somebody's help or without it then nobody can stop you from achieving anything and living a beautiful and amazing life.
#LifeWithPreeti It's been an amazing read for me and I would like to read other books too. Keep writing Preeti mam.
