I loved this book and as much as I loved this book it broke me into million pieces to think of all the incidents that happened in the book
Love the book to bits
I am going to be really honest with this. I am no Durjoy Datta fan. In fact this is only the third book I have read of his. Yes, 'Till the Last Breath' was great and the only reason why I trusted the author to read the other two.
'If It's Not Forever' did have journal writing but this was different... Much better.
Seems like someone tore pages of my personal diary and put it up there.
The first few pages will take you into a dismal trans... It will make you restless, like you want to do something but... you can't.
Words like 'petni' and 'shakchunni' popped up soothing my Bengali taste of words to an extent when Didima was introduced.
It was a strange kinda pleasure to read some Muslim names in the book- Zubaida and Sami.
The dilemma Raghu faces to be with his parents or not to be is relatable. We all face such pericarditis, don't we?
What will give you immense ache, like physical ache, somewhere around your chest and belly is the kinda situations the little boy of 16 had to go through. The endless family troubles because of the older sibling, also his only pillar of support. His past which drowned him into adopting such a demeanor...
And the girl- Brahmi. God knows my heart goes to her.
It is really impressive of the writer who has indeed a jolly life (no intentions of jinxing it) to write such dismal, depressing, dark phases. There is no emotion which is printed on the book, that's the after effects or the results of the intense mental disturbance portrayed in the pages... I often had to shut the book and caress my head to relieve myself.
Don't get me wrong with this. It didn't at all give me a headache. It was in fact... pleasuring. Heady mixture of masochism and sadism blended just perfectly... Like a drug. You know it's gonna be hurtful in the future but you can't help consuming it in the real time...
Another thing that impressed me was not just getting inside the body of a 16 year old at almost double the age, but also writing vividly in the gone time. You must know it's written towards the end of the last century and to support that, pretty references of the then-on-air-shows, brands etc are given. Really nicely sculpted...
The climax was another ache. The boy barely recovered from the loss of two dear ones and witnessing the only mast, the only string of support die... was... bad. Must I not admit, I did cry.
Mother or not, I think you'll feel really protective and motherly towards the characters...
For the author I can say, well done. And I swear if you don't release 'The Girl Who Lived', I'll murder you.
One of the best reads till date, buy that from me.
Also I don't know why he's going on requesting the readers to write reviews. I think it's their duty to let the young man know what brilliance he's put in words. Great evolution Mr. Datta. Keep up!

FYI - I am writing this with tears in my eyes.
I know it took me a lil bit long to finish this, but I did it deliberately. When I realized what Brahmi and Raghu were going through, I coukd relate myself so much to them, all I just wished alongside was - What if I too had a love in my life.
Nevermind, I kniw the end was not what I thought it to be. But the wait for this book was worth it.
At first, I wasnt shre if this diary style writing is what I will love from you, but now I know why you are one my favourite Author.
Thankyou for this story.
I am definitely waiting for the second part now ( Yes! Yes! I keep myself updated on you)
Thankyou for this amazing writeup!
Keep writing and keep giving us - Readers amazing love stories to live, most of us cant do that in reality but through novels we surely are able to cause of you writers.
All the best!!
