    Sometimes you have to judge a book by its cover and that is probably what I did when I decided to read Untruly Yours by Smita Shetty The cover design is refreshing and the story summary at the back is extensive rather very extensive I personally don’t like than one paragraph of the summary written at the back cover of the book To me it was something like ‘A spoiler alert’ I mean it almost revealed the whole storyShetty wrote a simple story that is spread across 146 pages; the book takes you through the Journey of a modern era women who is starving for a spark in her relationship which she fails to find in her love marriage she is been into for than a decade The story line is not new and have been a part of many fiction novels but this book has its own good things to offer which over writes that ‘old story’ tagThe language used by author is very mature and clearly depicts that it has been written by an individual having great experience of life and not just some IIT graduates The book takes you through a journey of protagonist Natasha who is trying to find a way out of her marriage to enjoy the missing romance passion and excitement In simple words on verge of infidelityIt took Natasha a journey of than ten thousands miles to find that she demands from life in terms of her yearning towards Steve; her office mate from US and Veer; her college days crush Natasha after seeing no progress in terms of her relationship with Steve straves for Veer; who eventually hurts her and forces her to make a decision that will change her life completelyThroughout the book you will find many instances where you would give a calm smile and some time a huge laugh I am personally suggesting this book to everyone Pick it up it is worth the readAlso apart from all this I have a uick uestion for Shetty How come somebody who just attempted suicide can change her whole life in that one ten minute conversation and start talking about Fashion police and all? Just asking

    This is a story revolving around a modern day female protagonist Natasha Iyer Natasha is a Bengali girl married to a Tamilian who has now earned the status of an NRI At first glance she has it all A well to do husband a glamourous job an eleven year old son and friends and colleagues she can depend on But as one takes a closer look at her life one realizes that not everything is as it seems Her husband is completely focused on his career and a son who is almost handful She doesn’t get along well with her mother in law and has only her father in law who sympathizes with her End of the day she is lonely and yearns for romance and companionship from her spouse When a call from India takes her on a trip back home she decides to take some time in order to find herself and look for what she really wants for herselfThis is a story that essentially deals with the journey of a woman who is dealing with her mid life crisis and trying to rediscover herself We take on a rollercoaster journey as we meet Natasha Rakesh Steve Priti and Veer Intent on clearing her head about her relationship with her husband Natasha is also forced to deal with other situations back at home and nothing is as easy as it should have been My only concern in the whole story was the turnaround time in the mentality of Natasha’s friend who had tried to commit suicideThe story is told simply with a dash of humour The characters and situations may mostly present a sense of deja vu for most of the readers and it is simply because the author has managed to keep the characters and most of the situations very true to life Most of us will be able to identify with one of the characters in the book and if not then we certainly know someone who can There’s ofcourse a happy ending but the story deals with the ups and downs of life that comes before the ‘happily ever after’ and ends with a positive noteOverall it was an entertaining read that managed to keep a hold on me till the end

    Right from the beginning the book was easy to read and made for some simple light reading The story has real life characters with whom one can identify and even feel for them The intro of the mother in law as 'Godzilla of Godzillas' was interestingly funny and the intro of the 2 interesting colleagues at work was believable while the kid and the hubby description would have probably made many a women readers say 'Gosh that's my hubby and kid' The story is about the female protagonist discovering hidden feelings latent desires and fighting internal devil angel battles between desires and moral standings One strange thing is that just when things began to get interesting in the story the novel was wound up The author could have written a lot of interesting incidents as well as brought out 'her inner turmoil' I wish Smita had decided to write a little It would have been a fun to read as was it fun to read the 150 odd pages The book does not bore you at any point in the story The author is able to hold up your interest levels using the story the line up of events by her narrations and sheer writing style

    My review at my blog books can be judged by their cover This book by Smita Shetty is such a book The beautiful cover translates into the story which is simple and well narrated mixed with the lightness of humor and the heaviness of emotions Perhaps meant to convey a deeper meaning that intent doesn't detract the story which is crisp and enjoyable to read The characters are likeable and interesting If I felt something was cliched it was the career driven husband which seems to be part of a lot of similar stories There was a botanical issue that caught my attention professionally but there aren't a lot of them that caught my attention A book that is worth the money and is re readable though not immediately after you've done with it for the first time
