Adi met Anita over a social networking site- both being well established-Adi being much younger than his crush. Infatuation soon develops into love-but Anita’s bitter past continues to haunt her in her present. The voice from the past never let her settle- ultimately she disappears from his life leaving Adi clueless.
Destiny takes Adi to a new land-amid new people. Here he finds Christiana-who instantly felt attracted towards Adi. But the shadowy presence of Anita continues in the life of Adi. Anita was the true love of her life-and Christiana?
The climax gets dramatic and I would rather say-shocking too. The ending will continue to echo in the mind of the reader.
The story has relatively fewer characters-but that did justice to the plot. It became well knit and characters also became reliable. Description of the city of Chennai and Chicago-where the story is staged, in between add spices.
It is a light read-with perfect usage of words and choice of dialogue. The way the story begun amid flashback raised my expectations and ultimately I am not disappointed.
Adi falls in love with Anita almost immediately after they meet for the first time. What started off as a casual online chat, develops into a sweet, caring relationship. But Anita comes with a lot of baggage from her past. Having suffered with relationships and the fact that she is much older than Adi, doesn't make it easy for her to commit wholeheartedly to a fulfilling relationship. When she breaks up with Adi for the very same reason, he is torn apart. Years later, he is in Chicago and meets Christina who seems to have fallen in love with him. But when he sees a reflection of Anita on The Bean, he is confused as to what life has in store for him. Will he meet Anita in Chicago or will he commit to Christina, is for the readers to find out.
First things first. The story line is good, could have made better with more pages and words to describe the character's feelings and emotions, I think. But I can't say I really enjoyed the book mainly due to its not-so-perfect narrative writing style. I felt the scenes (especially when falling in love scenes are described) were rushed. Some dialogues are exchanged and the couple falls in love. It just wasn't convincing. Also, the dialog delivery was not polished enough in my opinion.
With a good story line, From Yesterday could be a perfect book if you just want to pass time or have a casual read that is quick and decent. Last word, satisfactory.
On going through this book , I raise these questions to myself "Where youngsters belonging to the present generation is heading towards? Are they act responsibly or live their life just like that ? Remaining a spinster or a bachelor for a long time and want to settle at a later age say 37 seems to be the mistake of the individual or the society ?"Which is more important? Professional life or personal one.
"From yesterday " portrays the lifestyle of working women and men, who while away their time in flirting,dating and partying not giving the relevant significance to their personal life albeit in professional life they make all the efforts to come up and achieve a lot .
The Plot :
The protagonist, Adi a management professional happens to meet Anita an orphan . a make-up artist through soulmate.com, a popular social media and they fall in love and they want to get married. The only factor that work s against this is their age. Adi is 28 and Anita is running 37. Still they want to settle in life as husband and wife. In the meantime Anita tells about her affairs with Vanraj and Anand.Even though Vanraj loves her , his erratic immoral acts put a full stop to their relationship. Anand dated her with sincere love, but his family don't agree. They have to part with each other.
The love between Adi and Anita blossoms but their age difference comes as a hindrance . This prompts her to stay away from Adi. On official duty Adi goes to Chicago.There he meets Christina . They feel their love for each other.
What happens to Anita and whether the love between Adi and Christina succeeds are the two significant questions for which the answers we get on reading the book .
This is the first book I read where the story moves on through conversations in Chennai and Chicago.The language is fantastic and fresh. The colloquial style and slangy expressions make the reading interesting and pleasant as we can relate to the story line .
The author ,Anupam a gifted writer has got the ability to pen the events in a pleasing way with the right words.
There are minimum number of characters and they are intelligent and kind hearted and only exertion is Vanraj who indulge in unethical activities.
The sub plots are realistic and unpredictable.Even though there are not so many twists and turns, the way story goes with minute details keep the reader engrossed and works as a page turner.
The title "From yesterday " shows it is a nostalgic journey of the MCs. The cover is beautiful and the only shadow of the girl's along with the hero induces us to find out out the mystery behind such a scenario.
The story line is simple and the climax is shocking .
My favorites :
I like Hamid as he is a sincere and honest assistant of Anita. I give below examples of the words of wisdom sprinkled throughout the book
Life is not momentary . There is always a tomorrow . You hae a bright tomorrow that should not get shrouded by shadows from yesterday.
Life is not about what you have lost in the past. Look ahead . Beckon the new beginnings , brush aside the thorns from the past.
My verdict :
I recommend this book to all for a light and quick reading as it is a great entertainer.
