BOOK REVIEW : Story of Tublu by Jahid Akhtar

Devastated by the floods, Bipin and his little boy Tublu move to a faraway land, where they meet the Sharma’s. This marks the beginning of a long and enduring relationship between Bipin and the Sharma’s, and the growing friendship of their children Tublu and Maina. The book captures the journey of this friendship through childhood to adolescence and into adulthood. From some interesting school and college humor, the story progresses on and develops into a mature narrative. As years pass, Tublu’s plain and silent crush on Maina develops into deep love and longing for Maina which bears the potential to conquer all of life’s challenges. The story has its share of drama, that entertains; humor, that makes one reminisce; love, friendship and emotions that defines the amazing journey that is, life.

REVIEW :- Firstly,thanks to the author for sendiing me the book.
Whetever i want to say about this book,its already given in the blurb, as u can see its all clear & simple story...light read.
So, i tell you my viewpoint :-
The story begins in the late eighties ,in a small town of Assam.Bipin's life was devasted by the floods, which had wiped away hundreds of villages.
Bipin & his little boy Tubulu move to faraway land , where they meet the Sharmas.
This marks the beginning of a long & enduring relationship between Bipin & Sharmas.
The book captures the journey of friendship of Tubulu & Maina through childhood to adolescence & their journey.
Soon , Tubulu falls in love & develop feels for Maina . In the end Tubulu marries Maina & together they make a complete family along with their son Adi.

I felt that some lines are repititive,which i dont lyk.
All Together , i love the story & the simplicity ,the way author has written the book.

Iwould like to give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
