Book Blurb : In The Forbidden Line Virat is completely different from what his Dad wants him to be. With Pulkit and Saurav, who are like brothers to him and his girlfriend Manya, his life is perfect, until one fateful day when his world falls apart. Now, he has only one aim in his mind… Redemption.

Why was Radhika waiting for Virat?
Will Virat’s story ends with a happy note?
A loss can never be reversed.
My views : Blurb of the book will fill the reader with inquisitiveness and soon when the book commences with the two prologues, the reader will be more curious to read the insights of the book. The story which book carries is common and congruence to life events happening nowadays. But author has portrayed the story as light as rain making it a touchy story. All his efforts are oozing out from every page of the story and discharging the tale from his imaginations.
The title- “The Forbidden Line” is the best suited title for the story. The reader can smell the aroma of love, friendship, aggression and revenge in the book. A reader will find common events till chapter 11 and the twists will loosen up when he/she rides the reading voyage ahead. The first 60-70 pages in the book are running with a neutral pace leaving me inattentive. The book would take some time to gather the interest and heedfulness.
The part of the book which could moisten the reader’s eyes is, when even after the efforts of Virat (Protagonist) and Pulkit their friend Saurav left them and passed away. When Saurav died then story has taken a doleful turn which could nudge the reader to remove the devils from the society. How on earth people keep on watching the drama when the girl is semi-nude in front of them. These kinds of events are happening in the society to which nobody pays attention to and all do they care about is their life. Author has portrayed the same in his book and maintained the events very well which are really praiseworthy.
The narration of the story is done very smoothly by the author. The writing style of the author is simple making the reading journey easy. There are some spelling mistakes in the book like on page no. 80 and 84 the spelling of ‘post mortem’ is written as ‘post modem’ , on page no. 97 author had written ‘Mon’ instead of ‘Mom’. Such kind of bloopers should be taken care of to make the book flawless.
A nice read!
