Book Review#21: Secretly Yours: Vikrant Khanna

Long time have been planning to write a review and post. What better than today?
Here goes my review on the book "Secretly Yours"

Everyone has secrets . . . but is hers the most shocking? Orphaned at birth, seventeen-year-old Sahil has always blamed himself for his parents' death. He has little interest in life until he meets the enigmatic Anya in a chance encounter during the Shimla fest. Soon he falls head over heels in love with her, but Anya doesn't reciprocate his feelings.
An accident leaves him in a coma and when he wakes up he makes a startling discovery-he can read minds! Now he can find out what goes on in Anya's mind and maybe, just maybe, make her fall in love with him. But is Anya all she seems? Or is she hiding something?

Deliciously plotted, full of morbid secrets and startling revelations, Secretly

Yours will make you question what you see and who you trust.

About the author:

Vikrant Khanna is a captain in the Merchant Navy. He is the bestselling author of When Life Tricked Me and Love Lasts Forever. Apart from writing, he is fond of composing songs and playing the guitar. He lives in New Delhi.

My Review:
The book starts on a good note; the synopsis of the book was the catch as it tempted me to pick this book. I won’t say I am disappointed, but the book is completely different from what I thought it would be. The characters are well etched. But it’s based on a paranormal story. The story is woven around effortlessly but I found it very emotionally draining and disturbing.

The author has used the paranormal theme beautifully, but it’s just not another breezy read book you would feel good about after your read. A good piece of work if you enjoy the genre of suspense, thrillers, mystery. A sequel is on the cards, I hope he is able to hold the attention and the surprise element there too.
I would rate the book 2.5/5 as the attractive book cover and unique theme/blurb are catchy enough to make you buy without thinking twice. But as the story progressed I realized how misleading it was.

Lesson Learnt : The best way to read this book is to not expect anything from the blurb and go as per the flow.
