Book Review: The Guardian Angels


Book: The Guardian Angels
Author: Rohit Gore
ISBN: 9789381841280
Publisher: Grapevine
No. of Pages: 328

Once I said “It’s tough to leave something when you are at peak of it.”
No one actually got what I meant, but it was what I did. I left book reviews at times when people started appreciating it. Sometimes life decides the priorities that we failed to. I still get a lot of book review requests, but all I can do is politely say ‘No’ and suggest some other book reviewers. It’s amazing how people remember you for things that made someone else hate yo.

It’s been a long time when I last logged into the dashboard of my blog. So many things have been changed here. The most noticeable change is in the readership of it, which is falling by a huge margin. What else should be expected when you didn’t even try to write a single post in past four months? That’s life for you, raw and real.
As I said, I left reviews, so the reason to write has to be really strong. And when I received Mr. Rohit Gore’s message regarding his fourth book; story of ‘Circle of Three’ flashed like a long-forgotten memory. When he asked me to review it, I agitatedly accepted to ‘Read’. Reason is clear, if you ask me to review a book which I didn’t absorbed the way I used to do a few months back; it will be an injustice to the hard work and wonderful imagination behind the creation of an author. Mr. Gore was fine with it. So it was on. Here I am, writing something that I used to like most once, A Book Review.
Mr. Gore is author of three novels of national recognition, out of the three I’ve read and reviewed ‘Circle of three’. He loves to do things that can satisfy the creative daemon inside him. Currently, he is working with Fujitsu Consulting and lives in IT professional’s hub, Pune with his wife.  Mr. Gore’s latest offering is ‘The Guardian Angels’-with no tagline, but unnecessary comment ‘Brilliant and Addictive’ from Mr. Durjoy Dutta, owner of Grapevine. I preferred finding the truth behind the eye luring cover, so I started reading.  

The Guardian Angels is the epic and tumultuous story of two star-crossed lovers who weren’t just soul-mates but were also each other’s protectors.
The fates of Adi Mehta and Radha Deodhar are deeply entwined when within days of their first rendezvous they save each other’s lives.
Despite their vast sociopolitical differences, they are drawn to an uncertain future fraught with contrasting ambitions, personas and ideologies.
. . . he is the son of a billionaire, she is the daughter of a socialist.. . . he is quiet and unassuming, she is a firebrand and spirited.
However, the unexplained phenomena ties them forever – whenever they are in peril, they are each other’s only saviors.
Over the following two decades Adi and Radha live through hope and despair, joy and sadness, and try to decipher their relationship. As the truth of their bond is revealed, they must confront the true nature of love, and ultimately, their destinies.

The cover image is designed by Saurav Das, and is really classy design, in my humble opinion. The image used in the cover goes well with the back blurb and the story. Cover quality is becoming a major plus point for Grapevine. However, at the same time I found that it’s unsuitable for readers like me, who reads a book more than once. Only after first read, lamination was ready to peel off. Nevertheless, I must say this time page quality is improved greatly. Unlike ‘Shades of Love’, page quality is really good. (Mind you, it’s a Three-Twenty-Eight page novel, and price is still 125, beat that!).
 The back blurb is precise and gave an impression that I’m going to read a Bollywood’ish love story. It also told me that I’m going to read something that I know very closely, i.e. Destiny and its play. But for that I needed to start reading, so I resumed.  
 ‘The Guardian Angels’ is a tale of two individuals, Aditya and Radha, who were destined to meet. Their lives had a separate path, but they were on a parallel track all the time. It’s quite like they were reading the same book, and were on the same page, but had different interpretations of it. Based upon the age of protagonists, the story is divided into four parts, their teen-age, late teen-age, twenties, and their thirties. And off course the present day as well. I really liked this concept, because it gave me time to absorb one part before starting the other. It’s always good to stop for a while and recollect everything you read.
Mr. Gore has a gift. Something that not-so-many people have. It’s really amazing how he reads people and writes them exactly in a way they would be in real. Mr. Gore’s imagination is not bound to scattered thoughts, he wrote the novel in a well defined manner. In first part, they way Radha’s part is written, one can actually relate it with any teen-age girl (they use a lot of exclamation marks!), and the way Adi’s part is written, one can remember any of their classmates who used to be silent, and were dominated by others.  Similarly, I found the maturity of language to grow as the story proceeds. He actually wrote every page with a lot of research and hard work. There is not one page where language lost its grip or flow. Always in sync with the age of the characters, and the perspective. The narration made me visualize the events, and it was like I’m watching a TV series (not a bollywood movie), while sipping my coffee. Spell and Grammar is one more thing that I look for, and I’m highly disappointed because there are barely any mistakes of that nature. Mr. Gore and Grapevine has taken immense care while publishing this novel.
However, there is a little mistake related to context. On page 73, Radha said she saw Adi’s mother rushing inside the hospital with minutes after an incident, but on page 76, she simply forgot it and said she came back from Europe. Well, you know what happens when I read. J
To conclude my review, I would say that Mr. Gore has succeeded in writing a flawless and highly addictive novel (Mr. Dutta’s comment made some sense now), and he is one of the few Indian Authors who has a wonderful language. He wrote a novel that is ‘Clean’ and recommendable to anyone. Simplicity of language makes it a light read, but complexity of the story requires a bit of maturity. So if you are looking for a regular love story, it might disappoint you. Point of recommendation, if you ask me, is everything. The whole novel is well crafted to suit one’s reading needs.  If Mr. Gore is planning for another book, I wish him best of luck.


PS: To Mr. Gore: Thanks for providing the ARC, and the climax is something what I like to write. I must say, when I read, (and while I am writing these line) I had Goosebumps. It sent a shiver through my spine and touched the core of my heart. Thanks for writing this novel. 

Happy Reading :)
