You really did a great job in your book" And the heart died".
This book is really heart touching and this is your first book it's hard to believe because the way story has been written is mind-blowing.
The first book that I completed in a single read. When I start reading it, it quickly drew me in.
It wasn't like that boring love story, it was something different.
While reading this all characters were in front of me, like I was watching a movie and every character was interesting.
Story has a mixture of all emotions- Acceptance, anger, anticipation, joy, fear, sadness, surprise, contempt, distress, fear, guilt, interest and joy.
I really enjoyed this book. I would recommend it.
Good luck for your next creativity :) .
All the best
Just a simple story but while reading the book you will realise that author has put his heart and soul in the book.
You will remember the book and specially Ashwani for sure, for his simplicity,for story,for the emotions he felt for Suman.
If you are in love or are in waiting for your prince/princess you will connect to the story.
A book by a person in love - summarises the book.
' And The Heart Died ' is the debut novel pen down by Young Author Aseem Srivastava which takes you on ride of Emotions from Sadness to Thrill to joy and even lands you to tears on many spots if you are quite sensitive . Plot is narrated by the protagonist Ashwani who's a Law School student and lives in Hostel with his best friends DG and Sarthak .Plot hatched with Ashwani's visit to a cancer Hospital to donate blood on the 5th death anniversary of his father due to cancer and stumble up into a Girl in a park which steals his heart beat . Days later Ashwin went to a trip high in mountains with his family and friends where he met the same girl again and chain if events took place in a manner which switches the life of Ashwani .
Author has sucessfully portrayed every single character of Story in a very unique way . Ashwani , our protagonist about whom whole story revolves belongs to a poor family , good with studies & had seen ample struggle in his life and tries to be the best in every possible scenario . Khushi is also portrayed very well . Author has bolted an inspiring Brother-Sister relation with Khushi and Ashwani's Chemistry .
His metaphors and similes thud onto the page , Suman too is embedded as a looker , engineer by profession and believes in the principle of Being Honest .She always sticked with her pet line ' Ek Shikayat Hai Tumse ' . DG nicknamed for Digvijay is portrayed as a charming and fun loving guy who thinks life is too short to be wasted on crying or doing stuff that you dont like to . Sarthak is fixed as a studious fellow wants to become a good lawyer , want to earn enough to support his family and somewhere is secretly in love with Sneha , his classmate but don't want to acknowledge .
Author has bolt Pet Names like Glasses and DG which makes reader felt reading John Green . Writing is seamless and the page turning character raised with every flip of page .
This book taught lots of lessons :
# Relationship : Relationship doesn't mean saying sweet words to your partner every day . If a Relationship is not growing you then its not worth . People in relationship should be one other's pillars , should motivate one another to do best in their studies or in profession . And Today's generation is somewhere missing this basic tip .
#Should always follow the path of Truth and Honesty .
#With Netaji and Vinit , author try to remind the reader that Sinner always ended up getting punishments of his sin .
#DG's role speaks how one should leave his life .
#Some scenario from the book also taught the reader how Jealousy and Money blinds the thoughts of any person and could lead any relation on brink to break .
#Sarthak's portray reveals that one doesn't need money to stay happy . Its our family which truly matters . People in our life are our true assets .
#Tauji's character nailed that Good people are still posted on earth and Blood Realtions don't makes a family . Family is a dish with ingredients of Kindness , Honesty and Loyalty .
Minor Situations that i came across while reading is the fact that 1-2 stances are unrealistic .
So ' And The Heart Died ' is a crisp and fun read book jam packed with emotions .
Congratulations For your debut book you totally nailed it....To begin with,this book is a perfect blend of "human attributes" being friendship, insecurity, strength,romance,dirty politics and the fight against evil...
From Ashwani's "Not So Normal childhood" to Sarthak's dedication and hard work...From "DG Bhai" superb sense of humour and "gyaan talks" to Baba's selfless love for Ashwani...From Bihar's slum Boy to Bangalore's richie rich...From Kedarnath floods to Delhi's mishap...From Suman's unconditional love to Ashwani's lie's..From Red Sari To "Ek Shikayat Hai Tumse" .....From Kushi's supportive aspect to Tauji and Dadi's care...from Aryan sir and Netaji's evil intentions to Rahul sir's guidance...From Dedicated,innocent boy to the corrupt lawyer,From "supporting the criminals" to the unpredicted transformation..this book is "GooseBumpy Ride"
:- As They say ,Life is just a sum total of your,sins goods, happiness, grief, suffering and other good or bad deeds that u have done ..The result of the sum is always zero before u die.That means you have to grieve for ur sins in one way or the other and you will be greeted by contentment for all your good deeds.
:- Life Is very Fragile and vulnerable to an end,Every breath we take has the potential to be out last,just a single blow,a fraction of a second can crush your life along the saved dreams n future..So live ur dreams,have fun buddies and cherish every part of it
:-Losing everything is like a disaster, But one good thing about disaster is u can start fresh..U have nothing to lose but everything to gain in this world..
:- The world has its own mysterious way of surprising you..Sometimes u plan things and than watch them turning into chaos, turning into the most unexpected way right under your nose and the irony is u cant do anything to change it...All u can do is "Accept it and bear the consequences of the decisions u take"
Wow and Oops of The Book
:- This story can be converted into a huge blockbuster movie, Author has covered every aspect of human emotion,social happenings in this book but i felt "sad and depressing moments" were bit exaggerated
:- Loved DG,Suman's and Khushi's character but in the process of capturing "every-thing" somewhere i felt story that the story was self centered and other characters were in supporting role..
Being a debut author exposing dark sides of dirty politics and crime is totally a bold step kudos for that :)
P.S :- He loved,he lied,he played,he lost, he got up,he fought for the right and he won ....Do read this "Enthralling Journey" Of Ashwani.
Rating :- ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Komal Priyani ❤️
