Book Review: From Yesterday

Title: From Yesterday
Author: Anupam Dasgupta
Genre: Fiction, Romance
Pages: 224
Publisher: Frog Books

Rating: 3.5/5

From Yesterday by Anupam Dasgupta is a tale about romance, heartbreak and sacrifice. Although I wouldn't say I am excited about the book, but it does have instances which capture the melancholy of love lives in a subtle manner.

Adi falls in love with Anita almost immediately after they meet for the first time. What started off as a casual online chat, develops into a sweet, caring relationship. But Anita comes with a lot of baggage from her past. Having suffered with relationships and the fact that she is much older than Adi, doesn't make it easy for her to commit wholeheartedly to a fulfilling relationship. When she breaks up with Adi for the very same reason, he is torn apart. Years later, he is in Chicago and meets Christina who seems to have fallen in love with him. But when he sees a reflection of Anita on The Bean, he is confused as to what life has in store for him. Will he meet Anita in Chicago or will he commit to Christina, is for the readers to find out.

First things first. The story line is good, could have made better with more pages and words to describe the character's feelings and emotions, I think. But I can't say I really enjoyed the book mainly due to its not-so-perfect narrative writing style. I felt the scenes (especially when falling in love scenes are described) were rushed. Some dialogues are exchanged and the couple falls in love. It just wasn't convincing. Also, the dialog delivery was not polished enough in my opinion. 

With a good story line, From Yesterday could be a perfect book if you just want to pass time or have a casual read that is quick and decent. Last word, satisfactory.
