Yesterday, I finished this novel “Life is what you make it” by Preeti Shenoy, and I really liked it! It is a well crafted and synchronized novel, in which emotions are intensely described.
It is a story of love (Initially it seems a pure love story but it is much more than that), challenges in life, determination, pride, acceptance, and support, which make anyone stronger.
This story is about Ankita Sharma, a young, smart, intelligent and vibrant girl. This novel is about her successful progression in life. Suddenly, something happens in her life and depression traps her completely. It is about her terrible torment leading to “Bipolar Disease”. It is about her endeavor to conquer the dreadful tribulation.
The prologue of this novel is good and clear. It evokes interest to proceed further and peer into the flashback.
It is a very engrossing read; you can complete it in just one sitting. The language is simple yet stylish and mature. The pace and flow of the story is very good, and you won’t feel like putting it down. Over all it has a unique storyline written wonderfully. The highlight of this story, for me, is that the pain and turbulence of Ankita are expressed brilliantly.
I would like to congratulate the author for writing such a poignant, interesting, smart and gripping story. No wonder it has been declared a national bestseller. A must read novel!
