Life is what you make it
This is the one and the only book I’ve read by this author and it made me a fan of Preeti Shenoy. What a lady she is. She has written a masterpiece and I must suggest that everyone should read it.
‘Life is what you make of it’ is another interesting fiction by Preeti Shenoy. The story passes through various phases of the life of leading character; starting with the passion for love and success followed by a tragedy and ultimately to a miserable mental condition.
The story is about a girl who fell in love with a guy-Boy proposed girl for marriage-Girl said she is not ready for marriage as she needs to continue her higher studies-Boy committed suicide-Girl went in depression and admitted to hospital for mental treatment-Girl gradually recovered.
The story is narrated in the first person which has led to the first-hand exposure of reader to the appalling condition of a mentally ill person and awful condition of nears and dears of such patients. The story ended on a positive note that with positive attitude and support of close family members and of course right medical treatment one can come out from this tragic mental illness.
A must read book I must say.
