Review of A girl to remember

BLURB:

In every angel a demon hides, And in every demon, an angel strides. Neel is a self-proclaimed demon, a slave to his desires, putting at stake even the purest of relationships for it. He lives for himself, takes life as it comes, and considers people who love as emotional fools. When he first sets his eyes on his new landlady, a widow who is eleven years elder to him, all he can see is an opportunity. He has a plan to get rich and is working hard to achieve it, until he bumps into Pihu. She is an immature teenager who likes Neel for no apparent reason, and blindly believes that he is an angel who will take away all her life’s troubles. Neel hates Pihu for her unexplained obsession, and her being a hindrance in his plan, but her firm resolve to see a good person in him shakes Neel to the core. Will Pihu make a difference? Does inner transformation come to a man who has gone to a point of no return? A Girl to Remember is an emotional roller coaster which will make you believe that confession is the best punishment.

MY REVIEW:

Human mind works in such a way that it can make you seem like an angel one time and a devil at another time.

A girl to remember is one such book that portrays the life of Pihu, an innocent girl who awaits an angelic appearance to make things right in her life.

Neel on the other hand is a teacher at one of the reputed institutions in Pune. Due to his strange actions he losses job and his accommodation at the hostel is at stake.

Pihu who is kind of obsessed with Neel, that she offers accommodation. Neel gets to know Annu( Pihu’s mom) in this situation and he immediately makes a plan. He tries to trap Annu through PIhu to get hold of the property owned by her. He uses Pihu as the trump card. But Pihu continues to see him as the angel or the savior for whom she’s been waiting for long. Annu also is aware of Neel’s activities and his past record.

But what makes both of them agree to let Neel stay? What was the incident that costed Neel his job? Why is he doing all this is the rest of the story.

The three main characters- Neel, Pihu and Annu are portrayed very well. Neel is shown as a demon whose desire is only money and fantasizes women. He would use any person as an opportunity to get what he wants.

Pihu is an innocent and immature teenager. Annu who lost her husband at young age, has overcome a lot of difficulties with strong perseveration and has a determined attitude.

The style of writing is simple and lucid. Love, confession, responsibilities, realizations are all notable elements in this plot. The twists are unimaginable and are brought out in a way that makes the book a quick page turner.
