Moving to a new city, finding new friends, getting beaten by the police and experimenting with life in general – he does everything.Join Aarush as he tries – by hook or by crook – to find a way into love and happiness When Karma Goes Upside Down.
MY VIEWS ON THE BOOK –
TITLE – as per the blurb suggest and so does the story, for you never know how life may take it turns.
COVER- blue and graphics of 2 women and a boy – suggesting some love affair. The cover lets you know it is a love story with some twist in it.
CHARACTERS – Aarush is the male lead character in the book, Nishant is aarush’s best friend, Riddhima is aarush’s ex and Deepali is also another female important character that helps in forming the story.
WOW FACTOR – The letters to riddhima or to himself, really makes it more interesting. Also how beautifully the story to his now with his time with riddhima is portrayed together.
THEMES COVERED – love, romance, inner turmoil.
PACE – The pace is medium. you will want to finish the book in one go. just like i did.
The book starts with ridhhima breaking up with aarush. the breakup affects him really badly and he keeps going down to worst. which is made better by Deepali who is in her mid thirties and by coincidence they meet- they know they won’t have any future so they just keep being there for each other. fight and make love.
Aarush still keeps getting those pangs for riddhima again and over. He often asks her to get back. one fine day riddhima wants to come back to his life but aarush has lost all of the emotions and is not ready to feel anything anymore. So he keeps on finding what he wants. Messes up with his job as well.
well described book and a story with a twist.
overall – 4/5.
But as we say, things will get better over time. it does. he is now a writer. but has he moved on? is he better? read the book to know more.
