A lot of detailing has been done while creating the lifelike characters. Sagarika is like someone we meet in our day to day life. She is vulnerable after the accident, dependent on her husband, maids and Deepa. Roohi, her best friend, shows what friendship is all about. Even the supporting characters like the doctor at the hospital, her maid in Gurgaon and her savior have a role to play in the story.
The conversations and the body language of the characters have been beautifully described. The first conversation between Sagarika and Akash shows how their frequency is the same and so is their sense of humour. The memory flashes that Rika has while recovering have been depicted well, even how she logs on to the internet and facebook.
The book has been extremely well written, be it the description of the friendship between Roohi and Rika, or the relationship between Rika and Aakash and even the relationship between Rika and Rishabh. The closure has been done well.
Overall, an interesting, thrilling and mysterious read that was unputdownable from the word go.
As the blurb promised, “A forgotten Affair”, a debut by Kanchana Banerjee, is a gripping story of a woman caught between two worlds.
one - a stifling , life sucking, emotionally abusive marriage
second - A liberating soul stirring love, with promise of a better tomorrow
Which road does Sagarika choose? What trials and tribulations await her? Does she rise and cope up with the situations arising out of a memory loss?
These form the core issues of this page turner. Kanchana Banerjee wields a deft pen, words flow. I finished the novel in a single sitting, start to finish. The cover of this debut is soothing, intriguing and evocative - symbolic of the contrasting choices Sagarika faces and finally chooses
Kanchana Banerjee’s style involves descriptive detailing. One is immediately transported to the scene and becomes a part of the breathless happenings.
A cherish worthy debut.
Kudos to the writer.
The book flows smoothly and even though the storytelling is non-linear, there are no abrupt jumps. Sagarika comes across as a strong woman, guided by her instincts even though she is surrounded by uncomfortable realities. Her husband comes across as vicious and hateful. It is impossible to read the book and not feel resentment towards Rishabh. Akash comes across lovelorn and vulnerable, in fact, his contrast to Rishabh plays very well in the setting of the book.
Overall a very enjoyable book. The book is a page turner and does not lose pace throughout. Highly recommended.
Sagarika is not a heroine that is looking for her knight in shining armor. In spite of all her troubles, she has the capacity to stand up for herself, face her troubles and live her life. At every twist and turn, Kanchana has you praying and rooting for Sagarika.
The book is well-written and the distinct voice of each character stands out. Rishab’s anger and arrogance, Amrita’s care and concern, Deepa’s duplicitous dishonesty, Sagarika’s mother’s helplessness—everything pulls you into the story refusing to let go. You keep turning the pages till the final climax has you nodding your head in approval.
A Forgotten Affair will be a book you wouldn’t be able to forget.
