Enticed by the comely cover page and the heart touching tagline, this book had been on my priority list .And woah!! Within few days I received an email from Nimi Vashi from THE READERS COSMOS ,to read and review this book.. This was like a wish come true.
Mid pleasures and palaces ,though we may roam
Be it ever so humble there is no place like home
The sojourn through the story had been riveting and all the more refreshing with the tinkle of a novel thought of structuring it in a different way. Aditya and Radhika,the two main protagonists narrate their stories by juggling them alternately between their respective point of view and time frame which had been distinctly put on paper and is made noticeable.
The formation of the intricate patterns in their life had been sketched with a different appeal which keeps the reader absorbed.
Aditya, who’d been hit hard and harder by the destiny,his bread and butter was under the clutches of the repercussions of the recession period ,even the last of the coins bid goodbye to his pocket making him penniless,another lash on his life was his marriage which was on the verge of failure..Above all his habits put him into the worst of the conditions to survive being a Gigolo.
Radhika ,young ,worth a million widow, had been desperate for the freedom she had been imagining since his husband expired but that would cost her a few more days till her step daughter’s marriage is over as per her husband’s will.
Aditya and Radhika had been best friends since high school and were secretly in love too. Their saga of love with some spicy garnishes unfolds bit by bit which keeps the reader glued .
So how did their life take turns towards the messed up road? Why they had to be apart from each other ? Was Radhika actually happy to have her sky of freedom? Did destiny made some provisions for them to meet somewhere during their lives?Did their saga of love had an happy ending ?
Aah!! So many questions popping up in the heads .. Along with getting the answers ,relish the spicy romantic read sprinkled with the unique style of narration during this weekend. Go grab a copy of the book.
Though at times the reader is miffed and have to detour to be in the story,at times its kinda too Bolly-wood-ish too and it still had a scope of a bit more editing..But the author’s style of writing piques the interest with every flipping pages.
