Review of SOLITUDE REVISITED by Manaswita Ghosh



Title : Solitude Revisited

Author : Manaswita Ghosh

No.of pages : 112

Price : Rs.171/-

Publishers : StoryMirror Infotech Pvt Ltd

Blurb :

Solitude Revisited is a confession, a realization and the musings of a pensive young heart.

There are a million stories around us, but few are told. This book is about those invisible souls you encounter everyday, but never care to observe. Sometimes, the eyes need to look further than just what they can fathom, the heart needs to seek an anecdote and the mind needs to frame a memoir for the soul – to survive the vastness reality throws at it. That’s where fiction steps in, presenting an alternative universe for the mind to thrive in, so it may preserve its individuality and brood over its reflections. Thoughts demand to be contemplated and preserved just like history, for they tell infinite stories no sane mind can perceive.

Solitude Revisited is all but real; it’s a confidante and a confession, an artist and his muse, a whisper and a madman. Listen to it and you may find yourself, listen to yourself and you may find it.

Review :

SOLITUDE REVISITED – a collection of short stories which portrays how SOLITUDE has influenced the life of people. The heart warming stories leaves an impact in the readers mind and the author has very well carved the words to leave an everlasting impact. The characters are shaped to utmost Perfection which makes some of the characters like Zora, Arundhathi, Sumi, Veronica etc, to remain close to the readers heart. The usage of short poems in the middle of the heart drenching stories recieves an applause as it apts well with the plot. Every stories are relatable to our present life and it also makes us to question the purpose of our existence. The story which is still close to my heart are Zora- which portrays the life of a woman who changed her personality for the world fame but eventually when she tried to get back to her ownself,Nancy, she realised that the past cannot be lived again and she has failed to live her life abruptly. Also it portrays the mixed emotions of human feelings like love, hate, death, life, happiness, bad etc.

Every people around us are fighting a battle which we hardly know and this book is a collection of those struggles which every person needs to know. The title and the cover perfectly suits the plot of the book. The language used in the book is easy and elegant. Also it helps to maintain coherence throughout the book.

Review :

Love never dies – A book which deals about the struggles everyone face in the path of attaining their real love.

The story is set in the backdrop of a college where Nikshay and Mishika are classmates. After some formal fights and egos in college, they realise that they have fallen in love.

Further, he tries to move on in his life when Misha crosses Nik’s path again as someone else’s wife. Later, the book unveils the answers for whether Nik got back Misha?? Did their love survived through all the odds??

Love never dies – an usual love story which makes you believe that no matter what, real love never dies. The story was elegant and the author has conveyed her thought easily. Also the book has delivered some important messages for this generation adults that none should ever hurt others because it doesn’t take much time to return back to us and also parents shouldn’t force their intutions info their children. Also the book deeply explains about friendship, relationships and marriage.

The language was good with lucid words but the narration was not satisfacfory with the same word, repeating million number of times. The narration makes the book boring. Every characters are described well but the book loses its coherence at some extent. The printing format of the book could have been changed to regular formats to make the reading more comfy.

The cover page was eye soothing and the title also apts well with the plot of the book. 

Verdict : One time read.

Review of “Spoilt for Choice” by Poornansh Shrivastava

Title : Spoilt for choice

Author : Poornansh Shrivastava

No.of pages : 185

Price : Rs. 199/-

Publishers : Half baked beans

Blurb :

200 Riders participate in motorcycle racing every season and from 15 finalists only one becomes the champion. What kind of people are these who race without seeking any fame just to fulfill their passion? Not normal person for sure. Every rider has their own story and some become love stories. This story is about a small town boy, Samarth, who fell in love with a girl named Sanchi. He was passionate about sports, she wasn’t. She wanted love from him, he was spoilt for choice. Long distance relationship needs trust and understanding but he needed some time to understand these things. He chose his passion and she also made her choice. Can a person do whatever he/she is passionate about? Can a person move on from relationships to follow his/her dream?

Review :

This book is all about the life story of a common middle class born man – Samarth Shrivastava who aims to become a doctor and also follows racing as his passion. The book further unfolds how he managed to overcome all the struggles he faced throughout his journey to accomplish his goals.

Spoilt for choice – The book opens up with Samarth writing a suicide letter and further the story travels to his past to explain what made Samarth to take such a drastic step. 

Loaded with innumerable dreams, Samarth falls in love with his classmate Sanchi and they make plans for their future when destiny distances them for higher education. Samarth joins dentistry at Rajnandgoan whereas Sanchi joins in Chennai. But slowly the physical distance starts to drift them apart even though Samarth was head over heels in love with Sanchi. Also Samarth gets a sponsorship offer from Chennai for his racing career and he flies to Chennai when he faces the reality that Sanchi is no more in love with him and she is now committed to Rajeev. Eventually, after knowing all this, he fails in his race and also in his exams. Further the story is built on how Samarth overcame all the struggles and pain in his life and showcases how he achieved his dreams.

Spoilt for choice – a motivational book to inspire the readers to run towards their aim. The author has weaved the story well and his words showcase the emotions he endured. The first person narration makes the book more relatable to one’s ownself. This book makes us believe that it’s never too late to run for our dreams. Also it says no one is permanent in our life. The words are simple and the language is lucid which makes the reading comfortable. But at some chapters, the story misses it’s coherence. The book is divided into many levels which makes it a quick read. The presentation could have been better. The racing events were explained with utmost Perfection which almost makes us racers. This book is a combination of all concepts we expect in a book spiced up with love, dreams, hopes, disappointment, responsibilities etc.

Positives :

A real inspirational story. 

This book injects us with a positive hope that nothing is impossible.

Showcased the real struggles which every person undergoes in their pursuit of fulfilling their passion and ambition.

The cover page and the title is more attractive and can easily grab readers attention.

Negatives :

 The character of Sugandha was not very well explained and also it was left in the middle without proper completion.

Samarth’s dad’s bank issue was also left without any explanation.

At a point, the author makes us to feel why should Samarth love Sanchi to this extent even if she is not interested to reciprocate it.

Verdict :

To find a real inspiration and motivation, go for it.

Review :

The Mystic of Twin Flame Relationship : This book is all about the twin flames which explains the concept of Twin souls and also gives a deep explanantion about the concepts of companion souls, karmic mates. This book seeks the meaning behind twin souls along with its types and how the connection between two seperate twin souls is established. It serves as an explanantion for every doubts on twin souls and how they are related.

The book is a non-fiction which serves its purpose of giving an insight to the misconceptions and lack of knowledge about twin souls. From the start, the book holds the readers to its concept and maintains its coherence till the end. The selection of words were simple and the language is lucid which makes the reading comfortable. Also the usage of quotes by famous poets adds more beauty to the book. The book hinders your emotion and gives a deep insight about soul and insight which we were unaware of. Since the book is divided into simple chapters, it is easily readable but at sometimes, you cannot avoid the feel of reading a text book.

The title of the book explains what is hidden in the book and also the blurb serves its purpose to the fullest as it provides more information about the title. The cover also matches the content but could have been better. 

At the end of the book, the readers will get a clear view on the concepts of Twin souls with some valid definitions and explanations. And the deep exposition on the topic reflects the author’s hard work to make the book worth reading.

This book is clearly a work of non-fiction and every fiction lovers might find it difficult to get attached to the book at the start. But slowly the readers start traveling through the journey of the book along with the author.

Verdict : Wanna know about twin souls? This is the best book.

Review :

An eye for my love – is a heart drenching refreshing story which points out the issues the country undergoes nowadays in detail.

This book is all about the story of a vagabond Dhruv who was embodied to live his life on his own rules since he had a bulk bank balance left by his dad. His life just comprised of traveling all over the world. And further the story starts up when he lands up in the romantic city of Paris where his life takes a turn on meeting Aisha.

And further the book moves on answering the questions like whether Dhruv succeeded in fighting against him? What was the background of Aryan and Major?? Why they wish to kill him??

An Eye For My Love is one of the rarest books which deals with the bold topic of corruption, misusing power, violence against woman etc. The author recieves an applause just for writing this wonderful book. The foreword and prologue almost gave me goosebumps even before entering into the story. The author has very well narrated every events with utmost care and has delivered a great message through this book. The little conversation at the beginning of every chapters is a great social message. The author has weaved the story plot in such a way that it never seemed boring. Though, Dhruv killed the politician, it’s not practical in our real life unless we are such a carefree man like Dhruv. But it motivated us to fight this violence. Every characters are close to our heart and the author portrays the emotions of every characters through his simple words and fluent language. Also the book ends with an unexpected turn which we had never dreamt of. It almost left my jaws drop in excitement. Also the author portrayed the reality in today’s society through his words.

The book cover and the title is another great factors which attracts you to grab this book. In the front page, the bullet which crashes the words “An eye” gives you a deep explanation about the story hidden inside. The title is itself unique in its aspects with hidden meaning.

Just lived throughout the book.

Verdict : Many books come and go. But just some books remain close to your heart. It is one of those evergreen books. Make sure it is in your reading list.

Review :

The book is a simple tale on love which shows the struggles, every people undergo when they are in love. The book opens up with the beautiful description of Kausani Village near Himalayas where Vedanta arrives in search of his soul mate. And that’s when Saranga enters his life as a guiding light who takes him on a journey of love. They both get married and moves to Bangalore where Dhruv born as an emblem of their love. Further, the story moves on disclosing all the ups and downs in every relationship even after marriage.

Parrot Under the Pine tree – a heart warming book with a poetic touch. This book remains close to heart just for the beautiful descriptions of those places which makes the readers to travel to that place. The author has painted the book with poetic feel with his narration. The book was upheld by the opening of every chapters where the author describes the scenic beauty of the location. The language was simple yet excellent. The story behind every characters were neatly weaven and the book also holds a real meaning to the word “love” through its coherent storyline which makes the book an interesting read. It gives an insight to love. This book proves that nothing is permanent in this world and also serves as a page turner from cover to cover. Though the book fails to satisfy the thirst for reader at some points, it serves as a light read to calm down the polluted heart with its mesmerising description of places. 

The cover is simple yet natural which depicts the backdrop of the Kausani village which plays a major role in the book. The title is unique yet remains unjustified. The blurb is more enough to give an insight of what’s hidden inside.

Verdict : A light read on love worth the money spent.

Inside the heart of hope – a book of 121 pages which teaches us the important of life and also insist our heart to fight for what we deserve. The book is a perfect amalgamation of love, faith, hope, friendship and thirst for dream. The author has very well narrated the story and the first person narration helps us to travel along with the book. The events were narrated in present sense which deteriorates the interest in the read. The words were simple and the author has very well weaven them to provide us an interesting story. The last pages of the book teaches us some life lessons which should be followed by everyone. Though the book doesn’t has much twists, it proves to be a refreshing light read. The author could have explained the success story of the second surgery in more detail since it misses the charm and emotion which a person feels after undergoing a hopeless surgery. This is an inspirational read which injects you with a hope to live, no matter how bad your life. The cover and title very well suits the book and also the blurb gives an insight of what’s hidden inside.

Verdict : A book to teach you that life can become worse, but don’t give up.
