The Boy Who Loved – Reader’s Review

 

“The Boy Who Loved “the blurb tells us that the story is dark and edgy, unlike Durjoy Datta’s other novels, it’s quite different in aspect of darkness and gloominess of characters. It was highly satisfying to read this book with strong characters and mesmerizing plots. This is the story of a sixteen year old school going boy, Raghu Ganguly, lives in Delhi. He is just a boy next-door, having loving parents, quite good at academics and a so called perfect family with decent behavior. But the decentness is just a false appearance to the society.

Raghu nurtures a deep down secret guilt that he had let his friend Sami die. This guilt was killing him inside but his depression came to an end when he met his new classmate Brahmi Sharma, a tall girl with good looks, brilliant at academics as well as extracurricular activities, a class monitor herself, promises Raghu hope and a new life.

The plot of the book is a turning point; there are various subplots run parallelly with the love affair of Raghu and Brahmi. The story also narrates the life of the people around them. Durjoy Datta has yet again introduced into new genre with his brand new story. Another advantage is the well defined, mature characters of the book. Each and every character is plotted with innovative thoughts and they all have certain depth in every aspect.  They are different from each other but the blend of the numerous numbers of characters fits the story perfectly. And the climax part of the book is unpredictable, it was a bonus though. Being the first part of the two parts romance, the unconventional end makes the story perfect one.

Overall the book is very well written by Durjoy Datta and it perfectly comes to an end with serious note of fiction. My final verdict-despite of all its minor flaws, the book is a great one and must read for every fiction book lover.
