After a long time I read this type of romantic thriller.
The book starts with a good description of nature and atmosphere. But later the atmosphere changes.
With every changing plot the book seems more interesting. The main positive thing about the book is its narration and characterization.
The and turns can make the readers engage.
The book truly said that we all wear masks and we all have some untold stories.
The author described the whole story in a very witful manner. And the ending part is really awesome. And the book has a strong message too.
The language is simple with good narration.
The cover is pretty and attractive.
A good book to read.
The story according to me is open to various interpretations regarding Dhruv’s feelings for Anuradha and vice versa. This is what makes it interesting. Apart from that I’d say the conclusion was pretty clear from the start. By that I mean the turn their relationship will take and the upheavals it will create in their life. However, I must admit that there is an element of suspense and surprise in the story which I’d rather not reveal since it will be an injustice to the author and his readers/ prospective clients. To know what I mean, do read the book.
Characterization:he characters especially that of Dhruv and Anuradha are well developed. You can easily relate to most of their actions, reactions and inner turmoil. However I would have loved to get to know Dhruv’s wife Shalini a little more. I feel she has not been given enough space and importance.
Language: Easy and free flowing. Devoid of jargon, the book is a smooth read.
Pace: Steady and perfect. There are neither lull moments nor racy ones.
Often we blame destiny for our misdeeds but it is us who decide our fate or destiny. What Dhruv, the protagonist, faced was his destiny or he bore the fruits of his misdeed? Well, you need to read the book to know more about this.
The ending of the book was kind of predictable. The language is simple and lucid which is easy to read and comprehend.
Starting with the cover of the book, it is not very attractive or charming but serves the purpose of a good book cover. With its bright red colour, it easily attracts the attention of the readers. Red is the colour of love, red is the colour of passion, red is also the colour of sin. The bright red cover picture with images of flame perfectly justify the story.
The title of the book is absolutely apt. Characterisation is done well and all the characters have been developed nicely.
Overall, “You Never Know” by Akash Verma is a quick and one time read. Though the story has nothing very new to offer yet if someone is looking for a light and interesting read then this book is the one. Perfect to read for a short flight or a metro ride.
Dhruv a content family man with a secured job, successful and beautiful wife and two adorable kids, gets swept from the world on seeing Anuradha. Anuradha in turn is fighting the demons of her past. Once in love, they forget everything that ties them to the materialistic world. Dhruv finds one reason or other to come back home late and spend time with Anuradha. The basic plot has the telltale formula of the stories that portray extramarital affairs. The relation that is purely based on craving for flesh.
The plot takes a U-turn when Anuradha's past snowballs in Dhruv's life keeping his family in a flimsy platter. Determined to find the truth and end the games, Dhruv sets out to the place where all drama started.
Akash Verma has succeeded in giving a signature touch to the book eventhough the plot is a far cry from his previous book. The suspense element has been kept under wraps till the end. Barring a few glitches the book is an entertainer. The story as such is not a brainracker. The whole tail is simple yet systematically set. The climax is a breezer for a wife inside me but for a reader the climax was cold and without much expected drama or action.
Overall the book is an easy read.
