Book Review : Where the Rainbow Ends by Anurag Anand

Name of the Book: Where the Rainbow Ends

Author: Anurag Anand

Publisher: Srishti Publishers

About the Author: Anurag is an Indian author best-known for his book, The Legend of Amrapali. He completed his early education from Mount Egmont School in Darjeeling followed by Delhi Public School in New Delhi. He completed his MBA from Lal Bahadur Shastri Institute of Management and has been a part of the corporate world ever since. Some of his other works include Birth of the Bastard Prince, Of Tattoos and Taboos!, Reality Bites and Pillars of Success. (Via Flipkart)

Blurb: Even the most artistic of imaginings can sometimes seem callow in the face of truth. That which appears may not be and that which lies hidden might just be the stark, naked face of reality. Rahul had everything going his way – a soaring career, a happy family and all else a man his age could yearn for. And then suddenly his life began to crumble all around him, disintegrating element after precious element, leaving him to watch in helpless horror. Where had he gone wrong? Was there still hope for redemption, even a solitary ray that he could cling on to? Avantika, a pretty, vivacious girl who had come into Rahul's life by pure accident, literally, has suddenly gone missing. Just like that, without as much as a trace. Where is Avantika? Will Rahul be able to find her? Is it her own past that has come back to consume her or is it something even more vicious and sinister? Shalini, Rahul's first love and a girl accustomed to leading life on her own terms. Hailing from a family that exerts considerable influence in the galleries of politics and power, she certainly has the wherewithal to impact a lot of things. Even lives. Is Shalini fostering a grudge that could displace not one but many lives? Could she be the one behind Avantika's mysterious disappearance? Where The Rainbow Ends is a racy page-turner that promises to take you on a tempestuous and soul-stirring journey which shall remain with you long after you have put the book down. (Via Amazon)

Verdict: The blurb clearly states that ‘Where the Rainbow Ends’ is a story of Rahul whose life is like a roller coaster ride. He has been there when life was souring up and above and even when it took him down along with all of what he had leaving him helpless. He watched all of these changes with horror, shock and helplessness. Just when everything was going wrong he met Avantika, the effervescent girl, by pure accident. And suddenly after being friends for quite some time she has gone missing leaving Rahul into much more shocking horror than before. Rahul though has his own reasons to doubt his first love Shalini; but will those doubts remain just doubts or will they prove to be true enough and bring much more horror in Rahul’s life. All the answers to these doubts and mysterious lie in this book

1) Good story line.
2) Great cover.
3) The characters are defined wonderfully. Even the bond between Rahul and Myra, Myra and Avantika are well described.
4) The language used is simple yet not simple. One will get to learn few new words to add to their dictionary.
1)   There are some events and places described in the book are described a little too longer for few readers liking.
2)   The fact about Avantika’s disappearance is only know to Rahul but it should have been shown how and when Rahul breaks the news to Myra given the bond the two share. It’s a sure miss that makes the story to feel incomplete.

To sum up with the review it’s a good story line, one that will surely teach you a few nice lessons about life and about relationships too. All in all it’s a good read.

Ratings: 4 OUT OF 5.
