Book Review : When She Smiled

When She Smiled - Ritoban Chakrabarti

Mrityunjoy Roy is a fifteen year old Bengali who has spent the last ten years of his life growing up in Shimla. While his family is completely academically oriented, he wants something more. 
Finally he meets Akanksha in school, who turns his world upside down with her gorgeous looks and mind boggling smile. 

“Love” – Main crunch of the story. Have read many stories where two people from complete opposite background met, fall in love, had differences but then married and stayed together. But “When she smiled “was different.

I liked the way author has described the two individual, Roy – a very honest guy with lots of family pressure to become big enough and worth-while in life, to score big in life whether academic or sports. On other hand Akansha is easy going girl.

With two different backgrounds, both of them meet each other and fall in love. The chemistry between them is described very nicely. It’s beautiful, yet simple and also funny at times. At many instances you can also visualize you with your special one.

Love story, the crush in school days was something very unusual then the other love stories I have read which are normally in college, work place.

The other beauty of the story was the location. Shimla the best scenic of nature and this beauty you can feel while reading the book.

After the happy go lucky phase, author has written about how due to certain dramatic events they split apart to two extreme poles. Agree this phase was little sad, but somehow it feels so real and so true.

The end of the story is also nicely framed.

At certain points I also felt little bore, where just for one description author has made a one full paragraph.

But overall it was nice.

Final Say: A must read for all who believe in Love J
