MY REVIEW :
” The Best Seller She Wrote ” by Ravi Subramanian is a book about Love, Betrayal and Redemption as the cover says. The cover could have been more attractive. The book revolves around the life of Aditya Kapoor, Shreya and Maya.
Aditya Kapoor : Best selling author and Director – Branch banking at National Bank.
Maya : Aditya’s Wife.
Shreya : Student of IIM Bangalore and a girl who wants the things she desire for by any mean.
Shreya met Aditya when Aditya visited IIM Bangalore after 15 years. This time Aditya did not visited the insitute as a student. While Aditya was delivering speech, the whole auditorium was clapping. Among those praises and amazing praises, a comment popped up. The comment was not whispered to some ears but it was audible to all the people present there. Even Aditya has heard the comment which made him angry. The comment was made by Shreya as Aditya considered book as a product. There was a few minute controversial argument between both of them and the conversation ended with Aditya proposing the girl to read his book, and if she does not like it, Aditya would gift her ten books of the girl’s choice. Maya was a loving, caring wife and a mother. Maya gave up on her career to be a responsible wide and mother. It was not some arrange marriage but a complete love marriage. Maya and Aditya shared everything and Aditya shared with Maya even about Shreya.
After reading Aditya’s book, Shreya mailed Aditya about how much she liked the book. Aditya wanted to mail back with a rude reply but then he replied back politely. This was the beginning of their friendship. On the other hand, Aditya had to go to EasyLib for a reading session. While he was all set he got a call from Sanjay, his best friend to join him for taking campus interviews. Aditya reached Easylib and the programme was well finished. Few photographs were taken and got published in newspaper in which Shreya was also a part of it. Aditya helped Shreya by offering her to drop her to hostel back. I must say this was the biggest mistake of Aditya’s. In this journey that shared various things and Aditya came to know that Shreya left her interview to come to his event. Next morning, Aditya along with his team would come to IIM Bangalore to select students for selection.
Aditya promised that he would help Shreya to write her book. Friendship turned to love when Shreya joined National bank. Even if you lie to your mother, she would keep trusting you but once she suspect on you, by any mean she would go into the matter and come to know about the truth. The same is with wife. Sometime the best of your life can be worse of your life.
The book was a good one time read. It was a lengthy book and sometimes Shreya and Aditya was more than needed. The suspense of the reader that what would happen next won’t die till the last page. At the end, one of those secrets would opened up that any reader won’t imagine while reading first few chapters. This book even teach you some lessons that one must always keep in their mind.
Rating : 3/5
