God & His Girlfriend

Book Review: God and His Girlfriend

Grab The book.jpg

Source: Grab The Book

Blurb:

Have you ever met a pretty girl in a suspicious condition with blood stained hands lying in a hotel room where you are staying in?
Can a love story see its acceptance in the Indian society when the boy is from slums and the girl is born in a rich family?
How many of you have met those girls who were molested by their known ones when they had not even crossed the age of 14? Isn’t forced and unwilling sex after marriage similar to a rape?
Whether the prayers offered in love strong enough to bring back someone’s lost beloved from PoK?
How many of you know a person whose deeds are completely ideal, something which only a God can do?
Whether religion, caste or community should really be a parameter in deciding the hierarchy and dominance of people living in this world?
God and his girl-friend is a mercurial story about two youngsters, from entirely different backgrounds who strive hard against their comfort to live with their passion. A boy from the slums and a girl from a rich lavishing family set out on an embarking journey to touch the moon. This takes them through many tests, eventually tying them up in love, followed by an unforgettable service to the nation as true stalwart patriots.

The First Look (Source: Priyank Aryan’s Facebook Page)

About the story:

There are only few times when I get to read a book that I can actually relate to. This was one of them. No, I am not a singer or in love with a boy from a different caste or society but I felt like I knew almost every person in the book. I could relate to the society, I could relate to the thinking, I could relate to the feeling of safety, happiness, fear or love. There was just so much in this novel, in this love story, that one would find addicting.

It had passion, it had patriotism and above all, it had love. “All’s well that ends well”… While reading this story…or well, editing it, I actually asked the author ‘Priyank Aryan’ many times if the end is good and he was like, “You will see.” I was angry. The guy had just given me 10 chapters of the book and I knew that at least 10 were still left. With every page, a new hope arose, a new feeling came and with each new chapter, something new happened in the story which was exciting and frightening at the same time. Finally, I received the next 10 chapters and I loved them. They just completed the story. They felt full, nothing was missing.

As an Editor, I enjoyed many things that normal people could not, like getting to read the first draft, the second and final one. While I was reading, the author himself didn’t tell me much about what would happen next in the story but he shared some of his thoughts on Ashfaque and Jessica. Finally, I can just tell you that the story is not just about love, it is about several other things which lay somewhere hidden in our society, like Child molestation, rape, racism, etc. I liked that the author raised many points in this book which normally some authors would be hesitant to write about. I liked that there was suspense throughout the story.

I will completely recommend this novel to you guys, its worth the six hours you would normally give to a movie that has arguably no meaning. This novel is entertaining, emotional and above all, a reflection to some darkest secrets that some of us keep in our souls till death.

Rating: *****

I would give it a five star, not because I edited it, or read it around ten times but because I know that even the eleventh read of this story would be as thrilling as the first one was.

Opinion

Thoughts

There comes a time in your life when people will demean for no other reason but for what you are. That is the time when you think to yourself if what you are is actually bad. It could be any reason: Face, Height, Hair, Weight, Intelligence, Skills and most often your opinion. What does opinion actually mean? I know you must be thinking why I did not talk about the former reasons, well, my dear readers, if you are feeling down because you are being demeaned for what you look like then do not even think about it. They, who belittle you, have enough free time to do that but you shouldn’t be free enough to feel bad about it. That’s you, that’s what God made you and if He loved His creation and if you love yourself then those free comments from unimportant people should not hurt. Do not even hear those comments because if you do then maybe you are lacking the self-confidence. Self-confidence comes from your own heart and soul, it is not something that you learn at school or college.

What matters most?

Now, let’s get back to the opinion thing. I will be putting an honest example at the end as well. If you are sharing your thoughts and people do not like them, it is okay. Everyone has their own opinion about anything. However, if they say something and you feel it is in some way wrong, then speak up. Sometimes, the people argue back, let them argue, it is completely allowed in a conversation and let them speak their mind. If you show reluctance in hearing their comments, again, it is okay but if you shout and ask them to take their words back, it becomes intolerance.

Do not be intolerant as everyone has a right to speak their mind. This is called “the freedom of speech.” I am saying speech not fight. The minute the words change to throws and hair pulling or worse, guns and grenades, it becomes much more. Something illegal and wrong.

We are human, God gave us our mouth to not just eat but to speak as well. Speak Up, Speak Your Mind, Live and let live.

Some great writer once said, “Life is too short to think before speaking, the mind has done its work, let the mouth do its.”

An honest example as I promised before: Today, I was fighting with a person much much older than me, we argued for a long time and then, at one point, the person got so angry that the person shouted. I was too angry at that point to stop. Unlike the person, I kept my voice normal and my temper in control. The person then had the gall to tell me that because of my reluctance to accept his view, I would stay alone forever. I thought about it and came to a small conclusion. “If someone is stupid enough to just speak and not listen, then I would honestly prefer solitude.” Even an animal listens and barks. We, as humans, have complete right to say what we want.

Respect yours as well as other’s views. Sometimes your 6 is their 9.

“AGNIPUTR”
           When Agni first spoke
                                        — VADHAN

Blurb —

image

Many years ago, an extraordinary cripple disappeared from a remote village, ending a time of terror. Not many knew that he gave his life to confine a malevolence, the Sutram, to its subterranean womb or that in doing so, he had prevented the apocalypse. 

Deep beneath the Earth the evil has lurked, fraying its shackles and plotting its escape, all the while gathering immeasurable power. Until now. 

When ace lawyer, Raghuram Surya, received an order of requisition from the Government of India for his ancestral castle, he was unaware of the Sutram beneath it or his own legacy. 

He will have to choose between the world’s end or his own.

Let The Game Begin
                               By – Sandeep Sharma

Before I start with the review of the book, I will share a quote written by the famous author

              
“The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places.” – Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms.

Blurb —

Two kingdoms, Chaturanga and Sarprakt, separated by a mystic mountain range are at war with each other since ages. Chaturanga, ruled by King Viratha, is soon bestowed with a dynamic heir, and the whole kingdom is drowned in rituals and festivity. On the other side, Sarprakt is executing a cruel conspiracy. King Viratha, crippled by the conspiracy, urges the mysterious man of the mountain to devise a method to recreate the conspiracy and that gave birth to ‘The Game of Chess’.

My paperback

**** 
Serial killings shock the nation as the police are rendered clueless. The killer leaves behind a trail of chess pieces with a strange message. Random people are murdered. Connoisseurs of different fields – History, Chess and the Security forces – have united as the next intended victim is the most powerful person of the country. How is Chess involved in the whole scenario? How will they find a man who died 4000 years ago? Can a person defy the laws of nature? Does history really repeat itself? Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it

NEW BOOK

So, here in this particular blog, I want to tell you about this really romantic book named “Bad Boys After Dark: Mick”

image

RELEASING JUNE 22ND……..

Bad Boys After Dark: Mick

Indulge your inner vixen…

You asked for naughtier lovers, with the same fierce loyalty as The Bradens – Meet the Bad Boys… Four sinfully sexy, uber alpha brothers, about to fall head over heels for their leading ladies.

Everything’s naughtier after dark…

Amanda Jenner is done being a boring-man magnet and has finally taken control of her love life. As any smart paralegal would, she’s researched the hell out of how to seduce a man. She’s waxed, primped, and ready to put her newfound skills into action—and a masquerade bar crawl is the perfect venue for her solo coming-out party.

Entertainment attorney Mick Bad lives by two hard and fast rules. He never mixes business with pleasure, and he doesn’t do relationships, which makes the anonymity of a masquerade bar crawl the perfect place for a onetime hookup.

Amanda thinks she’s hit the jackpot when she bags a tall, dark, and sinfully delicious masked man—until she discovers the man she’s made out with is her off-limits boss. Mick’s already crossed a line he can never uncross, and one taste of sweet and sexy Amanda has only whet his appetite. When Mick offers to give Amanda a lesson in seduction—no strings, no regrets, and for goodness’ sake, come Monday, no quitting—the tables turn, and Mick’s totally unprepared for the lessons this sweet temptress provides.

The Bad Boys are a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series.

My Review – I haven’t read it yet but I have read a book by the same author and his writing is awesome.

Here is my review of his last book –

https://thebestwhattoreads.wordpress.com/2016/05/29/book-review-4/

Here is the author’s message to all readers–

Thank you so much for liking and supporting my first book! I am very excited to announce the launch of my second book “Get One Bye Two”, a superbly entertaining “Spiritual Cocktail of Science & Bollywood”!

It’s a quick, easy read but with lots to think and imagine while reading, and definitely after reading.

Will really appreciate it if you could also use the FB link (https://www.facebook.com/Get-One-Bye-Two-401210470078214/), and any other platforms to share the book launch with as many of your friends and families.

Thanks

BOOK REVIEW

Point Ten Zeros Six None


(Fables Of Fatal Fate – Book 1)
                     —– Dhiraj Singh

image


Blurb
Jeetu and Aashu are hopelessly in love with each other. And they profess to be each other’s soulmates in the next life too. As they embark on a journey of love and life together, they encounter several trying circumstances, which threaten to shake their faith in humanity. Can the power of karma and the strength of their love protect them and help them tide over their troubles? What happens to the people who betray their trust? Will karma catch up with them too? In God’s larger scheme of things, someone unfortunately must pay the price.

image

My Review – I will start my review with the author’s own quote 

“Love is a strange word. It’s the only thing in the world that makes life worth living for, dying for and killing for.”

Wow, Bollywood much? Romantic much? Thrilling much?

The best things about this books—

° You cannot leave it anywhere in between (try it, you can’t)

image

° The story is gripping from the first line.

° Has action, (Mr.Bhola with his six.three inch frame rocked) and suspense.

° The best female lead, Aashu is someone you can’t help but like. Nothing like those leads who are jealous every second chapter. She cares, trusts and loves Jeetu with all her heart.

° Jeetu, a brilliant character as the protagonist. He is not only head over heels in love with Aashu, he worships the ground she walks upon. I loved his sincerity. Also, the funny moments when he apologised to God for being the way he is.

° The book had an excellent story and even better writer who explained each and every thing in detail whether it was Aashu’s saree or the sun (I am being precise.)

image

I loved the book. I have to be honest. I did cry at one moment (I can’t tell when because that will be a spoiler)

The suspense was not predictable so it shocked me. 

Ratings –
Five stars

Worth the time and money.

I loved it!

Nobody has ever measured, not even poets, how much the heart can hold.”
