A few days back I had gone to Oxford Bookstore to attend a book launch. I was surprised when I heard that the book, which was supposed to be launched, was written by a seventeen year old. It was an enthralling experience, I got to know some eminent personalities of my city and I would convey my sincere thanks to Kolkata Bloggers for giving me an opportunity to review the book on behalf of them.
Romance, the theme which has been ruling the field of literature since time immemorial, is undoubtedly one of the primary themes of every budding writer. But very few authors are able to blend romance and thriller in a perfect manner.
‘I’m Yours… Forever…’ by Samragngi Roy is a romantic thriller set in a fiction land of Pegasus which explores the relationship of Rose and Robert, two teenagers. The daunting secrets of Robert, the exploration of Crystal’s psychical ability and the mysteries hidden under the shards of consciousness adds the aspect of thriller to the romance. Each chapter ends on a note which baffles the reader but it is the last chapter which ties all the unattended knots and gives the story its final shape.
I would appreciate the young writer to come up and put forth her step into the world of book writing and inspire other youngsters whose talents are often unrecognised. The writer has a good command over her vocabulary and her sense of playing with words and painting pictures of nature is superb. However, I felt the writing and the storyline needs ample maturity. As I have already mentioned, Romantic thriller isn’t an easy theme to deal with, it requires sophistication and experience to write a perfect romantic thriller. Nonetheless, a good beginning and best wishes for her career ahead.
