Book Review: 'And the Heart Died' by Aseem Srivastava
Title: And The Heart Died
Author: Aseem Srivastava
Publishers: Leadstart Corporation
Price: Rs. 195/-
And again it is a love story which you can clearly guess looking at the cover page. Nevertheless this novel is a debut book of the author Aseem Srivastava. The novel grips one with the themes that the author discusses not just through the various contexts but also through the characters that the author has sketched for us to admire. To know more about them fetch the book yourself.
As i said the author has well developed the characters, his style of writing can be matched with great and famous personalities but I refrain from doing so because you have the freedom to flaunt your imagination.
The author has dealt with the following themes: Relationships, Relation not just of blood but otherwise, Path of Truth, Sin and Punishment, Jealousy, Money not being the criteria for one’s happiness, the idea that Good Samaritans still exist.
So the book is a collage of humor, portrayal of selfless and unconditional love and lots more that elevates your heart. I had a pleasing journey with my emotions been struck along the way so much so that i felt my heart died. but I came alive because i wanted this story to be told.
‘And the heart died’ leaves your heart immortal.
Enjoy reading it!!!!
