The One You Cannot Have: The name says it all. The name itself was catchy and the fact being that this is Preeti Shenoy's Novel made me grab the book as soon as it arrived from pre-ordering and read it immediately. I took me 3 hours to finish this 275 pages of complete magic. Yes, indeed Preeti has created a magic. I cried with Shruti, laughed with Anjali, understood with Aman. This book has it all. It will look like as if a real life is running infront of you. No exaggerations in writing. Preeti's writing style has been augmenting and now it is at the peak. Dissimilar to her previous books this book is from male point of view (60%). This is a welcome change. Writing in opposite gender's perspective is really tough but then Preeti has done it again so perfectly. I could feel the emotions and wave length of every single character differently. --Srilakshmi Ind... on 19 Nov 2013

The novel is fabulous. I'm not sure if I found it so irresistible because the story almost narrates my own story so perfectly or if the story just tugs at your heartstrings. But in any case, it most certainly is one of the best Indian Romance Fictions I've read (and believe you me, I've read quite a few in this particular genre) I'd definitely recommend anyone and everyone to read it. If you are reading this review, please go ahead and place an order. This is one of my two favourites, so far (the other being I Too Had A Love Story by Ravinder Singh) Thank you Preethi Shenoy for this beautiful experience. --Amrut Achar on 07 Sep 2014

These are the 15 things that inspired me while reading this book and hope so other book readers too 1) Emotions of Love 2) Sweetness of Memories 3) Frustrations of Separation 4) Agony of making Second Chance in Life 5) Depth of Misunderstanding 6) Support during Emergency 7) Trust in Friendship 8) Suspicion of In-Laws 9) Women rights to give child birth 10) Technology advancement in Finding a person from any part of world 11) Presence of Mind during Long Night Travel 12) Dress Sense of Attracting People 13) Spying on someone 14) Instant Sharing of words 15) At last TAKING A RIGHT DECISION These are all the common things that happens to everyone in an INDIAN scenario in day to day life and that is what the author has portrayed in such a wonderful manner. It just TOUCHES the heart while reading !!!! My Hearty Congratulations for Preeti Shenoy for Perfect understanding of indian book worms.. --Soonu Aravinda... on 18 Nov 2013 --This text refers to the paperback edition.
