Coming to Preeti Shenoy, she has maintained the resistance that her writing style has. Right from the first sentence, you get a feeling that you are reading one of her best works. Every story of the authoress has characters that does bad with some or the other person but still, you can not point one among them and put all the blame on him/her. And that's the most interesting part about all the stories that she has written till date. She has given a totally new meaning to the "Love Story" book shelves in India. She has become a standard in the genre she writes in so much that any female author's book I read, I judge her on the scale of Preeti Shenoy and then, give the ratings. Hope the golden touch in her writings and imaginations stay.
I love the concept of making every character speak in first person as it gives various dimensions to the story. Book starts with the introduction of all the characters and their current state of life. The great thing is that the same state continues till the anti-climax of the book(almost) but still it does not bore readers even for a second. I was shocked when Rishab suddenly asks Shruti about Aman. Deepika trying to woo Aman is so sensuously written that the writers who describe sex minutely in their book will be ashamed to know that there's a way of saying it all in an innocent yet horny way. I loved the 3-4 articles written by Anjali in her magazine. They are so catchy that it reminded me about the authoress being one of the regular bloggers among the writers herself. :-) I loved Shruti's character the most. The real fun in Anjali's story begins once when she is been ignored by Aman. Later on, I loved the whole scenario of Shruti and Aman's meeting which was kept so real and classy. I loved that in the climax no one gets ditched or isolated.
The view about men that the female characters of Preeti Shenoy states lets male know what all they should change in themselves. I appreciated the paragraph where it is mentioned that the problem with men is that they don't express themselves initially and later on, move on without even explaining the reason or trying once again for relationship to work. This is extremely right but largely unnoticed. Preeti's open take in the book about not forgetting the first love made me look in to my own life and relationship which scared me like hell. But the way she has given moral to this whole thing in the end is why this book will remain in my RECOMMENDING LIST for a long time. The only drawback I found was the first part of Anjali's story. Her character only gets alive in the book after 2nd part. Rest, everything is perfect. I give this book an undisputed 4.9/5.
