Have you ever questioned yourself “Why Me?” when you face adversities in your life. Well, I suppose, it would have happened with everyone and an innumerable amount of time. However, there is a different perspective to it. It happened to you cause you could handle it well as no one else could. This is the thing being depicted in this very book by Anubhav Agrawal “Why Not Me?” which is a memoir of the author and tells the exact thing which I said. The story is like the story next door and by that, I mean that everything told is very relatable to anyone and everyone.
If you have ever fallen in love, or been hurt in love, or have been deceived, you will relate to it. And, who doesn’t have experienced such things? The story is a real-life story of the author and how he falls in love with a girl eventually changing his life. This may sound all oh-so-filmy to you. However, what happens, in the end, is a reality check. The author has poured out his life experiences with pure feelings. This is evident with the narrative style of the story. The purest form of love one experiences for the first time, the feelings that come along, and the heart-breaks that follow are worth a read. Telling any plot of the story would be a spoiler.
Having said that, I enjoyed the last part of the book where the author has summed up the life lessons he learned from his love life, both good and bad, and the way he has used this to lighten up the lives of others. With his Instagram page, “iwritewhatyoufeel”, he has given a platform to all the people who need to vent their piled-on feelings on someone somehow. Kind of therapy that I think is much needed in today’s world. This shows that when life gives you lemons, you can make lemonade out of them. All we need to do is give time some time and everything would fall in place. With the open ending of this book, I hope to see the author pen down a sequel of the book soon which sure will offer a lot more.
So, if you are a big fan of romantic books which follow a series of life lessons to be learned. This book is worth a shot.
