Avanni Singh is amazed when she meets Kiran Kapoor, her lover’s
namesake. What is more astonishing is that his beloved shares her
name. It seems like some prank by fate, but little do they know it
was going to become an adventure they would never forget!
When Kiran loses one of his senses, and Avanni fails in her
desperate attempts to help him recover, she gives up on life, tired
of fighting the challenges. And then she happens to fall in love
again, with another man bearing the same name. Sounds
unbelievable, right?
Swimming in the pool of guilt, Avanni finds out that her partner – for
whom she had been fighting a battle with life – was actually
cheating on her!
Can two couples with the same names be connected in some way?
Can love happen when you least expect it to, and create A Love
Story by Destiny?

Beyond Wonderland Regular

The book follows the love story of Kiran and Avanni , who fell in love with each other at first sight. Everything was going fine and they both were all ready to marry each other, but one accident changed their life forever. Kiran lost his voice because of the accident. Avanni didn’t lose hope and did every possible thing to help Kiran recover but during this period she fell in love with another guy, also named Kiran. When she decided to tell her first love about this, she found out that he was cheating her with another girl, also named Avanni. Were these couples connected? Does destiny have a ‘happily ever after’ written for them? 

Confused much? Even I was when I read the blurb, but the story happened to be filled with a lot of twists and turns. Though at some points the narration and point of view of the characters confused me, but at the end the author clarified everything. The story is a light read with beautiful characters. The book is well paced and the narration is smooth. The language is easy and understandable.

Recommended to all the romance lovers out there!

That Thing About You

Author : Abhaidev

Publisher : Write India Publishers

Genre : Fiction

Pages : 220

Beyond Wonderland Regular

What if co-incidences in our lives are nothing but a result of a dice thrown by some higher being? 
What if, to the heavens, our lives are nothing but rows of dominos ready to be put into action?
What if we all are mere pieces of pawns carefully played upon by a cosmic chessmaster? 

‘That Thing About You’ is an uncommon story of a common man rejected in love.

This is a story of a man walking on the path of self-discovery. 

Subodh, a regular IT employee, is perceived as an immature man by everyone, but he isn’t bothered until his love interest rejects him citing the same. 

Although dejected and crestfallen, he soon befriends an unusual, mysterious woman who knows everything about him and seems to have all the answers. 

Soon, his life goes through a lot of unexpected turns—from doubting his sanity and visiting a psychologist to a failed arranged marriage attempt made by his parents. 

Everything in his life seems to be in fast-forward mode. One thing that does not change, however, is this unusual “friend” of his who refuses to reveal her identity and chooses to appear at her whim. 

Who is this mysterious woman? Why is she prying into his life? Where will this strange friendship lead him? Is some impending danger awaiting Subodh or is it something else altogether?

Beyond Wonderland Regular

The title of the book suggests that this is some rom-com but the story is actually about spiritual finding i.e soul searching. The plot seemed intriguing so I picked up this book.

The book begins with two spiritual beings talking to each other about doing something necessarily on earth because of which one of them had to go. Then the author brings us to the story of Subodh, an IT engineer, who had a very undisciplined lifestyle. He was mostly occupied with his work but his attitude changed when his love rejected him. He was dejected and went on a trip to Jaipur. There he bought a mysterious key as a souvenir.

From that day onwards he started hearing a female voice in his head who used to guide him through his life decisions. He named her Kalpana. With the coming of her, Subodh’s life changed drastically. He started seeing life from a different perspective. But what exactly was this voice? Was he suffering from some mental illness?

The author has written a beautiful story about two people connected through spiritual bonding. A suspenseful, emotional, and un-put-down-able read. I loved how the characters were described and developed. The twists and turns kept me hooked till the end. The language is easy and understandable. Highly Recommended.

Witness the conspiracy unfolding that spans 350 years in the making and takes Robin and his companions on a labyrinthine adventure involving deadly secrets, dangerous threats and a lethal encounter with a beast in the jungles of Palamu.

Beyond Wonderland Regular

Mythology and Thriller are one of my favorite combinations to read. The title of the book is intriguing and the book is equally interesting. I loved reading it

The story is about a conspiracy which involved Ghost. Shocking right? The city of Ranchi was haunted by the ghost of Satyabhama, who was the right hand of the King of Palamu in the history. The ghost had killed 2 science professors till now and was on a loose to kill more people in order to protect the treasure of the king. The police wasn’t able to hack the case and were constantly pressurized by the media and people of Ranchi. They roped in Robin who was the famous detective, in order to solve the case.

Robin was a genius and was always able to crack the hardest of cases but this case had no end. Eventually he started believing in the ghost stories but there was something more to it. Will Robin be able to crack the case? Will the ghost stop killing people?

I was intrigued by the turn of events after every chapter. The story is full of emotions, action, drama and science. I was really fascinated from the very first page of the book. The author’s writing style is simple and will keep you hooked throughout. The character building is strong and the way the author describes the various scenes is commendable, I actually imagined all of it. The book is well paced and an enjoyable read.

Wasted in Engineering: Story of India’s Youth

Author : Prabhu Swaminathan 

Publisher : Notion Press

Genre : Educational

Pages : 184

Beyond Wonderland Regular

‘Engineering padicha nalla future – If you study engineering, you will have a good future.’ This is a claim often repeated to children and teenagers by parents and teachers in many parts of India. But only those who have gone through an engineering college life know that it’s not completely true. 

There is a difference between calling yourself as an engineering graduate and an engineer. India produces millions of engineering graduates like you and me but only very few of us are actual engineers. Many of us just graduate with an engineering degree, with an artistic dream in mind. 

What do you think is the difference between engineers in many countries around the world and engineers from India? In other countries, if David Pascal studied electrical engineering in college, few years later you can find him working as an electrical engineer. In India, if Ram Krishnamurthy studied electrical engineering, few years later you can find him working in a completely irrelevant field like software coding, banking, photography and even movie directing. 

This book is not about the few engineering students in your class who love engineering. I don’t hate them. In fact, I am very jealous that they study what they love. This book is about the majority of engineering graduates whose lives are wasted in engineering and is intended to tell you why you should make an attempt in pursuing your real passion, instead of being suffocated under the weight of an engineering degree. 

This is a story of India’s Youth. 

Welcome to India, the land of Wasted Engineers. 

Beyond Wonderland Regular

I always wanted to become an engineer but because of my hatred for science I opted for another career. But after seeing the life of an engineer, I feel happy that I chose Commerce 😛 . Also after reading this book I felt bad for engineers and their job timings.

The book is about engineers and how they cope up with their lives and the status of being an engineer. The book takes us on a journey of how a child starts walking on the path of self destruction i.e Engineering 😛 The author has described the phases of life specifically of an engineering student and have compared it with other non engineering students. Even after so much modernization in our country, people tend to have only two career options for their children: either doctor or engineer. This stereotype needs to be broken that engineering or doctorate is the only successful career option in one’s life. The author has explained each and every thought an engineering student very well.

The book is divided into different phases of a student – each part depicting the constant journey of the child when it comes to choosing engineering as a career option. The book is an educational read which gives us an insight on the life of engineers and the difficulties they face throughout their journey. The author has given guidance and has given motivation and inspiration to readers which I really liked.

The book is a good read for children who prefer engineering or for those who are currently pursuing engineering. Since, I’m a commerce student I didn’t enjoy reading it as I wasn’t able to relate much. The language is easy and understandable.
