BLURB : Have you ever met a pretty girl in a suspicious condition with blood stained hands lying in a hotel room where you are staying in?
Can a love story see its acceptance in the Indian society when the boy is from slums and the girl is born in a rich family?
How many of you have met those girls who were molested by their known ones when they had not even crossed the age of 14? Isn’t forced and unwilling sex after marriage similar to a rape?
Whether the prayers offered in love strong enough to bring back someone’s lost beloved from PoK?
How many of you know a person whose deeds are completely ideal, something which only a God can do?
Whether religion, caste or community should really be a parameter in deciding the hierarchy and dominance of people living in this world?
God and his girl-friend is a mercurial story about two youngsters, from entirely different backgrounds who strive hard against their comfort to live with their passion. A boy from the slums and a girl from a rich lavishing family set out on an embarking journey to touch the moon. This takes them through many tests, eventually tying them up in love, followed by an unforgettable service to the nation as true stalwart patriots.

MY REVIEW :
It is absolutely right,” God and His Girlfriend” is a story of love, passion and patriotism, as the cover itself says it. The title of the book is very apt as it matches with the plot of the story. Moving to the cover it was designed well. When I read the blurb with so many questions, my interest to read the book rised more because for a few questions my answer was yes and for the rest I wanted to know the answers. Turning the pages, honestly the curiousity level was rising. Priyank always manage to present the most sensitive matter in a best way. The same was with this book.
Each character had their own importance. Ashfaque character was definitely the best character in the book. But I loved Mansi’s character the second most. “Loyalty in love” is one of the most important thing and Mansi love towards Anmol was totally selfless and that is why I admired her character a lot. The book teaches many valuable lesson of life and most importantly the book covers all the most of the important issue of present society. The writing style of the author was simple and easy to understand. Overall, an amazing read and will surely be loved by all. If in few words, I have to sum up the whole book I would say it as :
“An inspirational love story. “
RATING : 4.5/5
