And We Walked Away by Subrat Saurabh

 

 

BLURB :

A heartwarming tale of love and friendship” ~ Shuchi Singh Kalra

And We Walked Away revolves around the friendship of three friends in college, with a love story blooming in their hearts. It connects to the kind of boys who are in love and keep trying to convince the same girl in different ways for a long time, not moving on in life. Also, it talks about the kind of girls who don’t believe in love but also, don’t want to take advantage of a boy’s feelings. The girls who are not conservative but don’t want to pursue love.

Abhimanyu, a well-known author returns to his engineering college in Bangalore after a decade and notices a lot of changes in the college over this period. It reminds him of how he met his ladylove, Naina on the first day of college and fell in love with her at the first sight. Abhimanyu, being an impulsive, stubborn and impatient guy decides to propose her in a rush. She doesn’t believe in love and has her own reasons for it. Abhimanyu with the help of his friends Aarush and Dev proposes and tries to convince Naina many times in unusual ways but he fails miserably. However, a trick helps to melt her heart, but destiny has a different plan.

 

REVIEW :

Recieved it well within time and was nearly packed. The cover is simple and soothing of a natural love story that keeps flowing. The blurb is simple and does not give away much of the story. The title is intriguing making you think what could be the possible twists and turns that could happen. The title gives a nostalgic effect to the book. The story is a simple one where as it shows the love story entangled during college times. Wanting more out of love and surviving the college drama. The story felt a bit unclear. The story holds you in the start but through the end the story was really predictable and lost it charm. The language is simple and easy to understand. The hindi poems in between really increase the beauty of explaining what might be going through the character’s head through all the turmoil. The story is based on college romance. And how one needs to walk away somehow at times when you’re not really needed like you should be. Abhimanyu has always been in love with Naina and does everything to prove it to her. But she has her own problems and cannot come through it. Will they fall in love ? Will they have a happy ending? I felt the characters could have been described more and the plot could have some more twists to keep the readers glued. A simple one time read as for me.
Overall -3/5.

REVIEW –

Call me Saaya is an extravagant book with twists and a beautiful story. the cover is simple but not that relevant to the story. The characters have been well explained. The themes covered is love and revenge. It is a story which will make you feel like oh no this should not have happened. They totally belong with each other. What you will really like is the way the streets and the street foods have been described in the book which will make you go hungry at times. Samsher and sayana share a love hate relationship. Samsher is here in the city to get back revenge and I will not leak the plot for that you will have to read. The vocabulary is really good. Easy to understand along with many new words to learn too. Really love it how the author went a little further to create a new atmosphere and story altogether rather than the usual ones. The book will make you learn quite a few things. It is bit of a lengthy read but is a page turner. Hinglish is also use in the book. Overall I really liked reading the book and would totally recommend you this book! The author has done an amazing job trying to explain and create imagery in your head.

REVIEW –

The delivery was prompt and the package was neat. Starting off with the cover it shows a one ride that life is and the hand holding is showing up a romantic story brewing up. The blurb gives you the gist about the book. Dr. Riya is the protagonist of the story and the story revolves around her life and love life.  Most of the talks here are about hospital. The story was a bit themed about mental health but mostly about needing someone in this walk called as life. The story follows a simple format and plot. No twists in the plot are there it is a simple story. The language is easy but medical terms might be confusing for a few people to read. The first half could have been compiled much more short. It felt like an on and off love life and the busy schedule that is being followed by. The little chats and 21st century references are relatable. The title could have been different. The ending was predictable.

The author has written a simple and sweet story good for a one time read.

His friends have deserted him and the only person he can turn to for help is his ex-girlfriend. All Neel has going for him is his dogged instinct for self-preservation and a devilish streak of good luck that aids him in rather unexpected ways. Runaway is a fast-paced tale of Neel’s frantic attempts to stay ahead of his pursuers, to uncover what really happened on that fateful night, to establish his innocence, and to stay alive while doing all of that.

 

REVIEW –

This book is a debut by the author but the way it has been written and the twists have been given really takes the reader by toll. Starting off with the cover it suits well with the story that follows and is creative with the title. The concept of the story is really interesting giving it a new twist. Each line has been written meticulously. The language is easy to learn and you will learn new words as well along the way. The protagonist does not remember anything and he keeps moving from here to there while in the parallel police is finding for him.

All of it is related. Sometimes a few things seemed a little stretched but it is a good read giving you more room for imagination. The pace is medium of the story. It is a good thriller book with a fresh idea and plot put up. The author has done a good job with the research and reaching to the depths of the characters. All the elements needed have been kept well by the author.

a decent read.

A few quotations from the book –

“Saying a prayer is like sharing your sorrows with a best friend.”

“Life can change from a bed of roses to a scorching desert within a blink of an eye.”

“I couldn’t find any rational explanation for the strange turbulence of emotions that builds up inside me like a whirlpool whenever she crosses my visual field.”

“How could a complete stranger invade our psychic system and gain control over us so much that we seem to lose ourselves to them?”

“Within a fraction of a second, our eyes exchanged millions of unspoken words with each other. And then her face faded in the far horizon as the speeding jeep parted us.”

“The thread of both life and death were intertwined in my current state of existence and I was somewhere in between both.”

“I was floating in a vacuum where there was neither sound to jolt me nor gravity to bound me.”

“The path of evil seems to be attractive and promising but it always ends up in a terrible terminal. On the contrary, the path of righteousness is rough and bumpy but leads to a glorious culmination.”

“I felt as if a stranger has suddenly banged into the privacy of loneliness and carved a niche in my heart.”

“Glooms and glees are nothing but mirages that we have created ourselves in our minds.”

“We are so much concerned about our tomorrows that we even forget to live our todays.”

“Pleasure and pain traverse our lives in vicious circles like day and night.”

“Our birth is the best and the worst thing that has happened to us. It depends on us what we turn our life into.”

“Her voice was as moist with tears as it was scorching with sarcasm.”

“Vigour is the quality of the soul and not of the body. A resilient soul can cherish even in a half-dead body.”

“All our rosy dreams don’t harden into reality but some do melt into tears.”
