42/100 of All Yours, Stranger – Novoneel Chakraborty
Second book from the “Stranger Trilogy” and almost equally engrossing, was able to keep my interest alive till the very end and still since its a trilogy – it sent me away looking for the third book of the series to set the score straight. Its a very nice cat (Protagonist) and mouse (Stranger) chase heading for an explosive finale – I hope it opens up the Pandora’s box by the time it ends to my satisfaction. Journey of Rivanah from college in Kolkata to Job in Mumbai, from first crush to a serious relationship, family pressure, blackmailing by Stranger. And I am doubly sure that these books will make up for good Bengali movies if not Hindi in very near future as Bengali movie makers are anyways good in making detective / suspense / thrillers. The question still remains as whether Rivanah (whose story this is) is going to get? Will she be stuck with her past (her Ex) or will she move ahead and get her present (present boy friend) or is she in love with the Stranger. I am going to get the answers in next 24 hours as just picked up the third part and just couldn’t wait to finish.
