Book Review: Author Novoneel Chakraborty’s Latest Thriller ‘Forever Is A Lie’ is a Real Teaser.
If you were looking for a tragic tale to read from quite sometime then here you are: master of twist & India’s most prominent thriller writer Novoneel Chakraborty yet again has come with another engaging tale of dark romance Forever is a Lie. Novoneel a true story teller has a knack of giving his readers a major shock at the beginning & then shaping the story gradually & in the end he blows-up the readers mind with goose bump giving climax. That’s why his readers refer him as Sidney Sheldon of India.
Prisha Srivastava an eighteen year old mass communication student was dealing with a break-up When a mystery figure presumptuous douche goes by the name of “Mean Monster” in the Bengaluru party circuit came across by her. Saveer Rathod “The Mean Monster” Makes Prisha learn what literally a true love is. What it is like to lose someone you love. He made her learn that there is no concept of true love however there is concept of complete love but most of us are arrogant enough to assume our incomplete love as true love. He advised her to save her tears for the day she get to know complete love. Prisha starts inching towards the “Mean Monster” (Saveer Rathod). She had a Going-weak-in the knees-kind of crush on him. Was is it a casual crush or Infatuation, a fatal attraction or complete love? Prisha didn’t know nor did she care to level it. On the other hand Saveer had a shocking past, Saveer had killed his girlfriend, he believes he kills anyone who gets to know him. Prisha’s utmost dedication made Saveer too fall for her. Saveer decided that Prisha will be her last. It was Prisha’s Birthday when they flee all the way from Bengaluru to Mumbai, where they made love for the 1st time on a yacht between the sea but neither of them knew that a women was standing at the harbour with tears in her eyes. she was counting the number of days to Saveer’s birth day. It wasn’t far now & this time it was nineteen year old’s turn to pay for committing the biggest sin of all: LOVE.
Finally Saveer’s Birthday came & someone pushed Prisha into abyss.
Who pushed Prisha? Is it Really Saveer who Pushed her? Will Prisha Survive the fall? Who was that Women Standing at the harbour of the sea?
So many Questions to be answered & for that you will have to read the book Forever is a Lie & it’s concluding part Forever is True which is scheduled to be out on October 23, 2017.
The writing of Novoneel Chakraborty has the same flair that we love this time around too and language is smooth to understand.
I Loved every inch of the book except the ending. Yes Ending was little unusual or I would say rather abrupt, but isn’t this for what Novoneel Chakraborty is Famous, for giving his readers a major shock in the end. 3.8 stars is what I think this real teaser of a book deserves, go ahead and have a read.
