Book Review: The Gift (It’s all about Love series) by Sourabh Mukherjee


“Detailed observations of human behaviour and the complexity of human relationships…” – The Hindu
After his bitter break-up with girlfriend Ishika, Aarav heads for his ancestral house in Mussoorie to get over his grief and to finish the novel he is working on. He meets Kishan, a child who has strayed into the house and spends his nights in the dusty, dark attic, scavenging through old books and toys that once belonged to Aarav and his cousins. Aarav finds his uncle’s diary, which chronicles a heart-warming love story unfolding in that house. What life-changing family secret does Aarav uncover?

The cover looks beautiful and gives any the gist of the story.

The title is simple yet perfect for the story, given what follows in the plot.

The blurb of the book highlights the soul of the story amazingly.

The story begins with the separation of Aarav and Ishika. The protagonist Aarav is a writer and moves to Mussoorie to complete his novel. There he was introduced to Kishan, who seemed a mysterious boy. The two stories in the plot furthers perfectly together. Read this 30 minute story to know what happens in the End.

The characterization is done with an amazing clarity. The Plot has few characters but their role were justified.

The language of the book is simple enough to connect with the readers.

Looking forward to read next part of “It’s all about Love series.
