I liked the starting and the way author created the suspense. I kept guessing the reason and was proved wrong at the end. Its very well written and is also a lesson for people who try to commit suicide. It tells you how important is your life and its very easy to enjoy it. All depend on you how you move forward. There will be situations in your life when you are highly frustrated but its all part of life. In book she got the doctor but in real life you get someone and you dont even realize to thank her for saving your life. Author described the kind of pain in stomach, its very much similar to a guilt feel or a kind of frustration which we feel when things are not in our favor or when some betray us or even you betray someone for a selfless reason. I liked the way author portrays the feeling of a person to damage her body to get rid of the mental pain. Its a must read. Hats off to Preeti Shenoy --Ravi Soni Aug 29, 2011

I LOVE THIS BOOK
The truth that any thing can be achieved through our determination and will power has been unfolded very smoothly and with content in the author's narration.
Though the initial chapters take you through the emotional drama of what a teen-ager experience the later chapters of the book really made me to sit and complete the reading in a single shot.
Recommend for all age groups.
This one even met my expectations and I was was happy choosing it for my current read in 2019. The story has really questioned our monopolistic attitude towards education and making up our careers. It is something more than that. Life has to be content and filled will satisfaction. A MBA degree can guarantee you a secured life with hefty packages but what it can’t guarantee is the ultimate happiness. That one will only achieve after having followed one’s heart. It can be anything, painting, writing, dancing, trekking or something else.
In this story as well, the protagonist , Ankita realised her calling after going through immense mental pain and stress. Even though his father has made a fortune through hard work but it could not help Ankita in coming out well. It was only her determination that pulled her out from the ocean of emptiness.
I also agree with the fact that everyone needs an anchor strong enough to help you bind yourself and come out more strongly. It can be in any form – your parents, your husband, your friends even a total stranger like the case of Ankita in the form of Dr. Madhusudan.
I would definitely recommend to everyone who is interested in good writing and few bits of motivation to keep you going!!
My rating: 4.5/5
