You never know by Akash Verma is a romantic thriller novel that revolves around the life of Dhruv, his wife Shalini and his extra-marital affair with Anuradha. Despite being married to Shalini he falls in love with Anuradha but at that time he didn't know he is going to get himself into trouble.
After reading the blurb I was excited to read this book as I wanted to know what will happen to the love triangle but there was nothing in the book which I expected. The story was totally different and interesting. Though I didn't like the characters having an extra-marital affair. The book starts with a thrilling scene which was enough to give chills.
The book has some scenes which are common in every romance novel and I love them every time I read. The protagonist has to face many obstacles when the past of his girlfriend comes face to face with him. What happens in the story? I won't reveal because it will spoil the fun. Read the book to know what will happen to this love triangle?
The best thing I like about this novel was its bold cover. It is in red shades and is enough to attract readers. I liked the tagline on the front which says
"Sometimes love can drag you through hell"
Which is very appropriate according to the story. The title "You never know" also goes with the theme of the story. The book has suspense, romance, thrill, drama, almost all the elements which are necessary for a novel to become interesting read.
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 book opens with Dhruv in search of Sid’s phone at the spot of Sid’s death. There are references to Talk-Tel a telephone service provider in the first chapter. But you can’t make much about it. The following chapters revolve around Dhruv and Anuradha’s affair and you almost forget all about Sid and his mobile. They resurface only towards the end. By that time you are huffing and puffing about the Dhruv and Anuradha’s extra-marital affair which drags for eternity. The problem with You Never Know is that it is disjointed. You feel like the beginning and end were simply inorganically connected to the middle of the novel, which consumes most of the space.
Speaking of good things, the writing is clean. The end though predictable is good one. Of course, this novel could have been much better if the aforesaid flaws were taken care of, You Never Know.
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.
