Greetings blogging world!
How has everyone been? I have been quite busy with the mid-term exams and results here. And now finally a week of holidays! 😅😅
So today, bringing before you another book review! 😁
Sometimes you pick a copy just being influenced by the cover. I rarely do that, yet when the review copy was afloat, I offered to do it just because of the cover. I love autumn leaves and the yellow orange leaves with the couple amidst them made me go for it!
So the question is – Do I regret my decision??
Well…….. What answer do I give!! It is a big, bolded………italicized….
Do you ask why?? Well here is why!
The book is Her Last Wish by Ajay K. Pandey.
His father’s over expectations only ruined his self confidence further with each failure. A ray of hope walked into his life as his wife, a charismatic personality spreading joy wherever she went. Everything is going per plan, but darkness comes knocking soon.
He finds out that she does not have much time to live and takes it upon himself to fight all odds – even his family, if need be – to help her fight her medical condition. His father sees his own redemption in helping them; he knows his son will be a winner only if he will fight for her, with her.
Will a defeated son prove himself to be a good husband?
Will the father-son duo together be able to change the course of fate?
Her Last Wish is an inspiring story of love, relationships and sacrifice, which proves once again how a good wife makes the best husband.
The blurb I feel has already given you some idea about the book. But I must add, the story and the plot is not so simple. It leaves a lasting impression on the reader, at least that’s what happened with me!
Vijay is a simple man with simple wishes and needs. His wife Astha is the lifeline and brings in joys and happiness in his dull and dreary life. Beautiful and energetic, lively and ambitious, she walks unexpectedly into his life.
Then comes in the wave of destruction which washes away all the normalcy in Vijay’s life. He comes to know of the fatal disease of his wife and the world shatters for him.
His relationship with his father undergoes a huge change. Truths are spoken and secrets spilled. With the narration coming from various characters, the reader feels like the character is sitting before you and telling the story to you.
A meek and timid man, who is low on confidence due to his troubled youth and expectations of his parents transforms. And emerges a strong-willed, firm and desperate man, who is desperate to fulfill the wishes, the desires of his wife. He wants to fill the remaining days of her life with all happiness.
Does Vijay manage to fulfill all the wishes of Astha?
Can anyone really change for someone they really love?
Does the fear of losing someone you love, lead to radical transformation, which otherwise you’d never have even thought of?
What can the fear of losing your love make you do?
To know the answers to them, you should read the book yourself. Trust me you will really like it.
With a sensitive topic, laden with lots of emotions and feelings, the book is really worth reading and deserves a space on your shelf!
It deserves a 5/5!
So, that’s the review! Another one is to be done soon. I’ll be back soon hopefully with someone I write myself – it’s not that the reviews aren’t written by me :?:?:?! I mean something of my own, my own work. Probably a poem or a short story!
Lots of love and best wishes!
