Reviewed in India on 3 June 2015
Woooooo ! A Complete Emotion pack Book which led the reader on journey from Sorrows , worries , depression , happiness, friendship , betrayal , cheating and true love . Author has presented the story in a promising way . Every single line leaves the thread that the story is pen down by a Mature but young author which She is .
Begininng with Front Cover - Book has a beautifully done cover with Dark Bluish Colour on upper row and lightend as coming in the bottom with Author's name written on the bottom , then beneath it comes Praise from the Hindu and beneath is the Name " After All This Time " in yellow and an artistic view of a landscape portraying a Guy and a girl standing on the horizon staring at stars with their bike parked along . This artistic view had been taken from a prose inside the book .
Back Cover worked with same background colour over which is a short transcript about the inside story .
Coming to writting . Whole plot is written in third person and As i wrote above , Being a mature author , she'd put some difficult words too in order to ensure that reader not just enjoy but also get benefited in term of his/her vocabulary .
The story revolves around Shourya and Lavanya as main protagonist and started with lavanya , a harvard graduate , who was working in a company named PSM in Newyork under a ruthless boss Carter and events revolved in a manner that a day comes when she was diagnosed with HIV and with same erupts her anger over Mr. carter for exploiting her and Days later , she fly down to her hometown New Delhi .Shourya on otherside working as well as studying for further courses , passed out from UCB . He flied down to californis years ago with her girlfriend Deepti to pursue higher studies . In Delhi he tutored his gf for harvard and even left the chance to study at harvard because she wasn't able to make it to harvard . He satisfied himself with UCB , which was the only common college they were able to place and years later settling to US , he found out that her gf cheated on him and had a affair with his roomie . Few months later , he visited back to New Delhi for his Sister's wedding and its revealed that lavanya and Shourya were best friends since KG and they pick up relationship from where they left as best friends . Time pass and as the day of return of Shourya gets nearer , they felt they are nothing without each other .
With this sweet love story , Author also revealed a harsh relationship of a Daughter and a father . A daughter who hate her father for being in a extra-maritial affair with a teacher which cost her lot of embarassment in school years later which later soughted out as both Lavanya and her father settled to talk . This instance was put to let the reader know that People do mistake but if they are truly sorry for that , then they deserve another chance too .
Another interesting instance that author had put in the book is " Toughy " , lavanya's dog who lost one leg while fighting from dogs when he was of few days . Toughy was portrayed as cheerful and enjoying throughout the book and lavanya's love .
This book let the reader believe that everything happens for a reason and even bad things too happen for a reason which ultimately is for our own good in future . We usually ignore the people who truly care for us and run for those who are good in pretending things . So SHOULD NOT LET TRUE PEOPLE SLIP YOUR HAND
In short its a Emotion pack book . Must Read and
