Product description

Review

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 think I am in loved wide its story. Its quite complicated yet interesting , it just tells that love must be confessed. delivery of the book was on time and buying this book was a good decision. I think I had added a pearl to my library. --ANKITA OJHA 31 Jul 2014

i am not a book bug.....still i managed to read the same and it totally changed my Perspective towards life.....one should definately buy this book and read it... everybody goes thru ups and downs in their lives....but how one manage the same is the question...most of us feel depressed or low at one point in time...but we should realise that life is beautiful .....with love,hope and friendship.....we should love ourselves first then only we can love others...nice book to have it in my kitty or rather my very first book...will like to read more books from the same author....well done lady!!! you rock!! --Pooja Chopra 24 Jan 2013

4.0 out of 5 stars Must read....
By Dr. Poonam Nikam on 19 May 2019
"Life Is What You Make It " is a novel by Preeti Shenoy. Protagonist of story is Ankita Sharma, who is suffering from bipolar disorder. Novel tells how she overcomes all challenges to make life the way she wants.
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Review after having read 100s of international bestsellers
By Ayesha Jahan on 20 August 2019
The print : pages too thin, cheap quality, almost rough yellow, many typing mistakes, font not enjoyable.

The book : the author has given unnecessary description and details at places where it is least needed ( e.g. meaning of PTO, etc), the story seems to be forced at some places, few details destroy the flow and beauty of reading, few grammatical errors.

The story was good to go through, but there was nothing motivating about it. Although I finished this book but I don't think I'm not buying any of the author's book again.

5.0 out of 5 stars prime essence of the book revealed.
By Midhun M on 6 December 2019
Just completed reading Preeti Shenoy's Life is What You Make It. A good read.
The title cover of the book says that this is a story of love, hope and how determination can overcome even destiny. However, after reading the book I realized that this is not the prime essence of the story. Of course, there is love, hope and determination in the overall context of the story.

But the main take away to me was this: No matter how high we fly, how great we feel about our capacity, abilities and skill, our life can always take an unexpected turn when we least expect it. Sometimes, what we lack at this point of time is to objectively analyse it and succumbs to the aftermath. In this case, it was a sudden appearance of her mental ailment that went unnoticed and almost took the life of Ankita. It sometimes takes an effort to trust and learn from someone (here Dr. Madhusudhan), and once we embrace it and deeply acknowledges that, we can see numerous choices revealing to ourselves.

Life is not what is ordinarily happening, but what we can see and make out of it when adversities hit us. This is a more meaningful elaboration of the title in context to the story.

Verdict: A good read.
