BOOK REVIEW : Angelic Beats by Sarita Singh

Angelic Beats is the story of a boy in his late teens who falls in love with a married woman. Both defy their ages; the woman for her looks and innocence and the boy for his confidence and clarity in life along with integrity. The journey of the boy for his passion also becomes journey of love for both that finally takes them to more meaningful destinations. It unfolds the changing perspective of a young boy and a married woman in various situations of life treading the path of love and success together. How they carry on with love and friendship as a responsibility is quintessence to their journeys.Love can make one completely blind or it can candle all the darkness in life.Sometimes destiny becomes the greatest magician. It brings two opposite people, Sahil and Aakanksha, on one platform. Even their personal statuses do not match for one is married and the other single. One is confident about making choices in life, whereas the other is always scared of making a choice. One is always positive, and the other is negative in outlook. Unlike mathematics, where “+” and “−” always make “−”, sometimes in real life, “+” and “−“ do make a “+” together. On the road leading to his passion, he happened to meet the first love of his life too. Before going to the National Defence Academy for the journey to be a commissioned officer in Indian Air Force finally, he introduced “love” in her and his own life and pledged his heart to her. The arrows of cupid struck her also. Do their final choices engulf all other relationships like a storm and rage and bleed their self-esteem? Or are they able to carry their choices gracefully through their quest for happiness?

REVIEW :-  When i started reading this book, i was like  wowww...what an amazing read
author instead of not belonging to this field has written such beautiful story
She must have done lot of research about Army & NDA .
But soon after reading some pages i started loosing loosing interest in it, as these type of stories dont suit my taste...I understand that Love can happen at any age ,but then author should have added something more to arouse interest in readers.
The protagonist Sahil is a 19 year old whose dream is to join the Airforce. He is strong, determined and follows his dream passionately. On his journey to the NDA, he meets Akanksha, who is 24 and married.
Perhaps she would not have an identity as what she has today, an IAS officer, had Sahil not come in her life.
Did love between them made them stronger & more responsible?

Some good lines from the book ,which i liked -
The gentle & soft percetion of love is always the same whether it is in any form, for one's parents or children, or the beloved. 
Love & life both ae journeys we tend to forget sometimes.
Love is paradoxial- when you are in & happy, the feeling of completeness it iculcates in your heart is no match to any other sense of achievement or satisfaction,but once you are out or forced to be out of it, the disgusting feeling of being incomplete & dejected it fills your heart with,has quality of no other match.It fills one with deep excruciating pain with no signs of external injury.

Overall, i would i like to give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
It is an easy read, simple language and fast paced keeping the reader glued to the pages.
