    The author sent me a review copy for an honest review.I don’t read love stories typically let alone a love story involving ghosts. The only reason why I picked up this book was because I was intrigued about what Abhimanyu Jha with such multi-faceted abilities can achieve on the writing front considering that I always believed that it’s almost impossible to have a decent writing career if you already have a full-time job. (I read that his alma mater includes IIT+IIM which is the “Super-Ivy” league equivalent in India) I was glad to know that there is no limit to what one can achieve if someone puts their heart into it.While the book is approximately 250 pages long (I read the digital copy), the story doesn’t end by any means with this book. (view spoiler)[There is a cliff-hanger ending for people who remember watching Fellowship of the Ring in the theatres without having read the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Consider this to be fair warning. In fact, this was one of the reasons that I did not give it full points while there will definitely be others who would end up loving the book for this very thing. (hide spoiler)]The book is written primarily from the PoV of two characters - Maahi and Veeru. While Maahi is a good-natured though naughty ghost who wants to achieve nothing but liberation from the earthly “life” of a ghost, Veeru is an entrepreneur who sets up a website as a joke not knowing that it would change his life forever. Asmita Burman is another enigma in this suspense story since she claims to be a professor (old and half-blind) at the hallowed Indian Institute of Science, IISc but somehow her story doesn’t check out.The story progresses to a point where Veeru gets involved in a time bound quest with Maahi to ensure her emancipation. Maahi bumps into another 500 year old Portuguese ghost while on this quest and discovers abilities which were hitherto unknown to her.The strong point of the books are the pacing and the suspense. The author has ensured that there are no loose moments in the story and that new mysteries are introduced as soon as some are answered. The author probably had to sacrifice characterisation during this as I personally felt that Veeru accepted the existence of ghosts quite easily considering that he vociferously debated with his friend about paranormal phenomena just a few days prior. I also found the language to be a bit simple / raw (in want of a better word) probably since the author’s prime readership audience would consist of people from the Indian subcontinent.Overall, it still makes for a very entertaining read and considering Indian tastes and preferences, this could easily translate into a very delightful Bollywood movie. Highly recommended if you are interested in a very light-hearted paranormal love story with an underlying suspense throughout.

    Stories based on paranormal concepts are difficult to believe, and more difficult to write. I haven’t changed my opinion about this genre after being done with this book ‘’ by Abhimanyu Jha today, I am as perturbed as ever about them. Apart from the honest appreciation for the author’s attempt for going out of the way and making ghosts seem as normal as possible there is not much of a positive impression that I have had. I wouldn’t regret giving spoilers in this review firstly, and then the “to be continued…” in the last page only left me dumbfounded. What could have been a beautiful thriller turned out to be a dud with its average choice of words and events.Two friends Veeru and Jerry open a website for ghosts, and the one who relatively believes less in them, Veeru ends up encountering one, the way the transition in his belief is presented by the author seemed quite obtuse. The discussions between them in the first few pages of the book especially about females when they are opening the website only made me shudder, such rotten talk! When people stand for and talk about Indian authors in the literary scene I would definitely want to hide or burn these pages! And then enters a ghost who does not know who she is, for the time being named ’Maahi’, she wants to finds her unknown estranged lover and then an Indian Institute of Science Professor, Dr. Burman who is equally strange arrives to help her!Veeru and Maahi travel to Goa then to Pondicherry in search of her ‘Hrithik’ a golden haired man, so named after the most handsome Bollywood heartthrob around town because she does not remember him either. Veeru does these things out of no obligation and when he starts seeing his invisible companion he falls in love with her in the process. He even goes to the extent of calling her ‘Miss Dark Chocolaty’ because she remembers she loved dark chocolates! That was something hilarious to read, a girl ghost who neither remembers her name nor the person whom she wants to search does remember that she loved dark chocolates and that there is a Bollywood hero by name Hrithik! Someone pinch me please! Veeru has eight days to save her, and to help her get into her oblivion. Also there is one Marquis, a five-hundred-year-old Portuguese ghost making mysterious appearances.Ghosts going through emotions- crying, laughing, giggling, talking naughty and feeling an intense pain is something too impetuously presented in the whole story. Not every reader is Veeru or Jerry fortunately.For example, a small excerpt of what Veeru thought of the ghost Maahi, more so her nose:“The tip of her nose was my favourite place. Of course thinking about various ways in which I could knock on it added spice when I focussed on it”I seriously could not appreciate the vocabulary and would not have continued if not for the suspense. The story for me started with mystery and ended with one, going by the last page it seems like there is a sequel to the book. When Blogadda came up with giving away this book for review it said:“Join the age-old battle between good and evil-a race between time, freedom and love that will eventually put the entire world in danger”What was the battle and danger about??? I would be glad if anyone enlightened me about what I just read!

    Ghosts and their world which is full of mysteries and unexplained phenomena fascinate and intrigue me. That their stories spook me at night is another story! The blurb of the book promised a lot of excitement and thrill, so with great horror-laced expectations, I started reading this book.The plot of the story is a novel one. A young entrepreneur Veeru, sets up a dating website as a challenge. Maahi becomes her first client. Maahi has died recently and needs to find her way out into the oblivion within 8 days or else she will be trapped in this world in an intensely painful state for a long time. And the quest starts to find the man Maahi loved as that would help her finish her unfinished business on this earth. In the process, Veeru falls in love with the beautiful ghost, Maahi and they meet a 500 year old ghost of a Portuguese nobleman Mr D’Mello who is somehow related to her death.I enjoyed reading most part of this book. Veeru and Maahi’s love story is tender and cute. Dr Burman adds to the intrigue. The way Maahi’s dream is decoded, the teleporting and telemorphing done by ghosts and that ghosts can experience emotions is interesting. The story moves ahead with the sharing of point of views of Veeru and Maahi after every incident. While, it is a different style of treating a story and it helped explain their thoughts/intentions better but it was repetitive most of the time.And finally when I read the last page, the big bubble of thrill and excitement burst, just like that, all of a sudden! It was a WTH moment which left a bad taste. I understand that a climax may not be the end of the story, the story can continue as a sequel in the next book, but in that book, the story has to resolve some conflict. does no such thing. It just leaves the reader hanging with a three word phrase at the end. As promised on the blurb, there’s no ‘age-old battle between good and evil – a race between time, freedom and love that will eventually put the entire world in danger.’ started with a lot of promise but left me disappointed as I kept the book down after reading the last page.

    Well, Let’s start from the cover which I found the least impressive. The title of the book was intriguing and the blurb seemed to make book look a bit different from the rest. Whole novel follows a very simple language which makes it an easy read. There aren’t many characters in the book, just a bunch of them which restricts the story at times as not much is revealed about them.The story is taken forward by continuous viewpoints of both male and female protagonist. The story seems to leap in the starting to hook the reader but then drags very slowly. Not much happen over a few chapters and one might be tempted to skip a few pages even. Double viewpoints have given way to repetitive narration which might bore the reader. It could have been avoided. Instead double viewpoints could have been taken to increase the pace of the story which otherwise is slow. Beware, the end will leave you surprised, may be shocked even, because you may not have thought of it even as the rarest of the possibilities. Apart from the shock the end will leave you with so many questions, ofcourse without the answers (but you will surely know why the story was slow in between :P ).Words defined the feelings quite well and the reader could feel the pain of the characters. Helplessness of the ghost are perfectly described. Feelings of the male protagonist could have been elaborate considering it was written by a male author. There are moments which make you smile and some make you wonder if such things do happen! If one believes what all facts are there about ghosts are true then feel yourself enlightened on the topic.In the end the thing that has stayed with me hours after putting down the book is the song- Aaj jaane ki zidd na karo…..Read it here:

    2019-04-26 05:02 by Abhimanyu Jha, is a work of fiction about a rendevous with the occupants of the other world. Yes, it is about the other world!An interesting plot visualized by a techpreneur and a best selling author Abhimanyu. This is a gripping story about coming together of three worlds – a human being (Veeru), online virtual world (an innovative website) and the not so known other world (Maahi). The story keeps you glued to the pages and you get hallucinated to read more and more till the time, you land up at the concluding page.Initially, (as always) I was afraid of mention of ghosts but then, my fear was gone as if it never existed! It was really hard for me to keep the book aside in the middle of the story. This comes out as an emotional account from two so – called emotionally devoid characters – first, a tech-savvy technical person and second an out-of-the-world soul. The author’s hard work and the dedication can be deduced from the fact that he narrates the story in two voices i.e. Veeru’s and Maahi’s.An enticing read for romance, thriller and horror readers alike! Something that will help you to do away with the endangering feels of having a ghost around and you will feel helpless to fall in love, one more time.Source:

    it was nice and I almost gave it 3 stars but 3 words at the end of the book literally pissed me off and the result is one star off the review. It was a well written book and i wish the author did not climax the book the way it did ... it is never a good feeling to leave a book unfinished ... and the author managed to give me that feeling in spite of reading till the last page. On the brighter side, i actually enjoyed reading the book. it was enjoyable to read the interaction of the lovely beautiful ghost and the living man ... and how they gradually fell for each other .. knowing very well, that it was not the right or logical thing to do. The story is sort of like the Ajay-Kajol starrer "Pyar to Hona Hi Tha" where Ajay helps kajol get his boy-friend back ... only for Kajol to realise she has fallen for Ajay instead. The book was predictable in that sense but still written in a manner one could enjoy. if only the author had 'completed' the book and not left it hanging with "To Be Continued" at the end !! :(

    Abhimanyu Jha has done a great job in keeping the readers glued to pages. I could not stop once i started reading it. I actually laughed my wits out on the introduction of a five-hundred-year-old ghost - friend of Vasco D Gama. I actually looked for the site - and it landed me to the author's website, which was fair.

    A 2.5 actually. Something charming in terms of the treatment and the characters in a book with above-average writing. And why wasn't this book advertised as the part 1 of a possible series?

    This book is entirely different from Dilli-Mumbai love story. It's gripping and has a lovable ghost as one of the two lead characters.

    The plot follows a novel idea but the execution and language aren't quite up my alley.

    I rarely use the word brilliant, but, this book is pretty damn brilliant.
