When I was asked to Review this book, I must say I was skeptical, but agreed anyhow. After all, who in their right mind would say no to a free book, eh?
I like to read books that has latent author’s shadow in it. sadly, major part of Indian- English Literature now has Chetan Bhagat(CB)’s Shadow, irrespective of whether he has written it or not.
When I picked up this book, I was mentally prepared for another CB-like book, but I was pleasantly surprised!
Guardian Angel’s story, even though a love story, is very fresh. The character’s are relate-able especially the girl. There were so many points in the book that made me go “THAT is soo me!” or “THIS is exactly what I would have done!” he guy’s character was a bit over the top.
The story is about Aditya and Radha who meet when they are twelve. Both are totally different personalities, with totally different interests and come from different economic backgrounds, still something keeps bringing them together especially when one of them is in some trouble.
Instead of being the boring old “Oh so in love” couple, Adi and Radha are best friends. Their relation is based on friendship, which makes it much too endearing.
Other than that, Harry Potter reference! Potterhead in me mentally gave a friendship shake to Radha for this!!:) 🙂
The writing is fresh and breezy, which makes this a really good book to enjoy when you are in a mood for some light reading! So, pick up this book, go make yourself some tea, put up your feet and just start reading! 😉
And yes, this book will definitely make me go get other works from Rohit Gore and give them a read as well! Can’t wait!!
