My life with a Soul is a new concept by the author and quite a good one. The story revolves around Sam, the protagonist and Selda, his Love. Suraj, being a Editor himself has really used his knowledge, skills and imagination power to the extent. The way he portrayed Sam's character, talking to himself and expressing his thoughts in words and that too on a consistence basis is one of the best part of the story. The unconditional love between Sam & Selda is also something worth reading. Despite the differences they had, still they loved each other genuinely. The end of the book is quite painful when Selda leaves him and dies. The quotes he used at the beginning of each chapter acts as magnet attracting reader to Read On.
A well written story with a unique concept way better than chick-lit stories. Will recommend this book to the readers. Grab a copy if not read yet. Will give ☆☆☆ 1/2 stars :) All the very best Suraj for your future.

Flirting with Fate is the first crime thriller novel by an Indian author I read. Finally a book that ended my streak of searching for an well written book by a female writer. Preeti Mam had very beautifully described Anand's character. The way he does everything to gain victory through destructive methods and yet finding out something good in it to fool his conscious. His search or his ultimate quest to be a Big Man, having everything under his belt, a Beautiful wife, A big house to live and A Car has been defined perfectly by the author. The tagline of the book "Karma Returns" goes well deep with the content of the story. Whatever good or bad deeds we do in our life we have to repay as it is in this birth only. The character of Fluffy, the dog is quite interesting and creative. The part that he too speaks (though no one understand what he wants to say) has been used quite effectively in penning down humor. I wish i had such a dog :P.
The ending part of the book is quite emotional and tragic when Anand starts losing everything he owned or he dreamt to own One by One. The way story ends with twists and turns which i didn't thought of. After completing the book i had a smile on my face and a thought in my mind which was there after a long time. "Will read it again someday."
Wonderfully written story with an extra-ordinary story line. Will highly recommend this book to the readers. Grab a copy if not read yet.
Will give ☆☆☆☆ 1/2 stars :)
