Book Review of An Eye for An Eye My Love

An Eye for An Eye My Love by Vibhor Tikiya is a heart shaking novel that can leave you with thousands of questions with no answers to be heard around. The author has talked about the combination of a carefree life with a worst life. This book surely makes you laugh and cry at the same time.

The cover of the book is breathtaking as it has a couple who are lost in each other. This surely gives us a glimpse that it is a love story. The colour scheme is beautiful.

The title is different and highlights a serious issue which we comes to know about once we start reading the chapters. The story is linked to the title somewhere and makes sense.

Dhruv is a vagabond who lives life king size, without having to work for a living. He wanders around the world without a purpose. Life, however, takes a turn when he meets Aisha in Paris and falls heads over heels in love with her. An escapist, he is unable to express his love while his lady love moves back home to India. Dhruv decides to go after her to the country that wasn’t very kind to his late mother. To add to his misery, he loses Aisha in a violent incident. Transformed into the reluctant fundamentalist, Dhruv seeks punishment for the culprit through law. It’s when the loopholes in the system seem to be favouring the wrong side thathe seeks vigilante justice. Aided by two men with their own agendas, he fights to achieve justice and balance. “I want to live” – the last words of a woman who changed India forever – inspire this tale of love, justice and revenge.

This book talks about the serious issue called rape. We are well acquainted with the fact that on December 16, 2012 the whole country was blown by a loud cry. The last words of the victim in the Nirbhya sexual assault case were, “I WANT TO LIVE”. This incident became the inspiration for the author so he came up with this piece. I must say it is really difficult to comprehend such a situation.

The characterisation is marvelleous. It is difficult to delineate entirely different characters with entirely different idealogies. Dhruv is a vagabond whereas Aisha has a father and job to look after. Life takes a turn when they both are in love but a tragedy takes away all the happiness of their lives. This story is serious but the first half can surely make you laugh and smile.

The style of writing is simple, lucid and clear. The way the author has used witty and condensed language is impeccable. The use of quotes is main highlight. The editing seems to be apt. The beginning of chapter has some deep conversation with the mom which makes it stand out and unique.The feelings depicted by adding emotions, pain, drama, suspense and mystery is just perfect. If you want all the flavours of a novel then this book is the best choice.

Book Review of Finding the Angel

Finding the Angel by Rubina Ramesh is a masterpiece indeed. This book is a package of emotions, love, drama, humour, tragic element and wit. The way the author plays with the minds of the characters is just fabulous. Nobody could have done this. This is one of the quickest read of 2016 as it took me only 1n half hour to complete this. Moreover, just because of this book, I have fallen in love with Ebooks, which is completely against my rules. Kuddos to Rubina whose story made me break this rule the second time and first time being her first book Knitted Tales, that is a collection of short stories.

The cover of the book is mind blowing. It just gives us royal touch. It takes us to those Raja Maharaja tales which we have read in our childhood but this book is surely different from those.

The title is perfect as the story revolves around this. Finding the Angel is a beautiful saga filled with loads of drama and emotions.

All She wanted was love…
Shefali is a die-hard romantic. Having lost her parents at a very tender age, she is in search of a place which she can call home. Her passion for Art lands her a job as an art curator to the famous artifacts of the Ranaut Dynasty. When she meets the scion, Aryan Ranaut, she feels that her dream might come true until…

All He wanted was to trust…

Living the life of a modern day Prince is no easy task for the young and dashing Aryan Ranaut. Having lost his father to a rapacious woman, Aryan has severe trust issues. But upon meeting Shefali, he feels he could let down his guard. Until…

All They need is to find The Angel…

Just as Aryan realizes his love for Shefali, one of the most precious artifacts, The Angel, goes missing from the Ranaut collection. All fingers point towards Shefali—more so because she leaves the palace without telling anyone on the very night of the theft. 

Finding the Angel is a story where duty clashes with love and lack of trust overrides passion. Under these circumstances, can The Angel bring the star-crossed lovers together?

The plot is neatly woven. There are no sub plots as the main plot is just so gripping. The saga revolves around Shefali Verma and Aryan who are opposites but are attracted. When the rare Fabrege, the Angel with Egg in chariot is stolen, all this attraction turns out to be a revenge. Shefali wants to find the Angel to prove her innocence while Aryan wants it for his mother. The story looks like a Tom and Jerry chase between Shefali and Aryan where Aryan is unknown of the true intentions of the people around him.

Rubina seems to have excelled the art of characterisation. My most favourite actors are Shefali and Aryan. Both have a lot of similarities. They are complex characters and it is difficult to know their mind set unless until one comes and reveal about themselves. The way the situations are delineated and the way these two act is exceptional. Both are deeply in love with each other but their behaviours seem to oppose their thoughts. They make a perfect couple and the chemistry is fantabulous.

The style of writing is simple and eloquent. The use of witty language and the typical regional words like ‘Khamaghani’ and ‘Ghanighama’ makes it look royal like. The descriptions are artistic and beyond perfection especially the palace description takes away the hearts of the readers. The small side stories makes it look like an allegory but it is not. The intense scenes have beeen described with decence which makes them more beautiful. The third person narrative is impactful. The editing is simply awesome. It is a must read as you will surely get lured by the suspense, mystery, love and action. I can bet that this book has the power of turning into a movie. Currently, this book is in an ebook format but soon the author is releasing its paperback version on 9 January, 2017.
