Book Review: Want What You Have: Who are you really when you lose everything? (A Narcissist’s Memoir Book 1) by Rishabh Jhol


Zehen had everything that he ever wanted – good career, large group of friends, supportive parents, and a loving wife to be. He was experiencing his first snow 11,475 km away from everyone he held dear when Kavya called to end their eight-year long relationship. His identity was crushed. This story captures his transformational journey of eating bitterness, finding himself, and becoming a social entrepreneur, a traveler, and a writer in the process.

The Cover has been set in a beautiful background, which I liked. It gives a soothing perspective to the readers about the story and the plot.

The title ‘Want what you have : Who are you really when you lost everything?’ is quite appropriate for the plot and the subject this novel talks about. It’s quite thought-provoking but still I feel the title should be short and crisp.

This is the story of Zehen. It begins with his love story with Kavya which was quite regular in nature. But this story is more about his travel and his experiences as he is one of those guys who believe in living life to the fullest. The story is about choices Zehen made, when he pursued his passion, his dreams of travelling.

The characteristisation has been very well. It’s more near to the reality rather than fiction, which connects with the reader instantly.

The struggles after the choices are made can be understood through the story. The language used is simple and easy to understand. Narration is smooth. Nevertheless, a great weekend read!

It was a nice read and I completed the book in one go. It was full of mysteries and writing was effective. Looking forward to read more from Rishabh Jhol in future.
