‘I believe, there are only a few things in this universe which God creates himself, for everything else he recruited management trainees. While I was an abhorrent work of an inexperienced yet overburdened trainee, I was watching at one of the God’s own creation, even God must have felt proud of her beauty after creating her.’ – Amit Singh, Sorry…Again?
Can you beat this phrase while appreciating a woman’s beauty? Sorry…Again? is a romantic thriller written by Amit Singh with a gripping story-line.
Sid is the inevitable effect of what a small town upbringing brings to the city life. A self-confessed “unromantic”, somewhere in his simple exterior lies a weak preacher, whose yardsticks of life change radically when the unpredictability of life starts experimenting with him. Anushka, armed with her unselfconscious beauty and poisons imbued into her life, has declared war on the world of men from a young age.
Their romance, even after her protest, is ignited by a train robbery that becomes unforgettable for reasons other than the robbery, catches the warmth because of an adolescent romance that reaches consummation, but remains within the periphery because of a live-in relationship that is on the verge of break-up.
They fall in love, but somebody is not happy with their relationship. Sid is threatened. Will he rise above his fear this time?
Having read Amit Singh’s interesting tales on his blog, I read this book with a lot of expectation, and I must say that he did a wonderful job in this book. The story opens at an unearthly hour of 3 a.m. Sid locks the main door of his flat in Kolkata, where he spent most of the part of his life, moves to Bangalore. For a moment he looks at the opposite door hoping she (Madhumita) would open the door and come rushing him, but she did not. He gets into the cab. His transfer to Bangalore means, his designation “Sales Manager” gets added with a new word “Area”, he could meet his best friend Aakash, and above all, he can bring out the “Old Sid”. Sid and Aakash, like before, they had fun in Aakash’s apartment, at the cost of his live-in relationship with Neha. Sid meets the mystery girl Mallika again in a food court. The story then moves into Sid’s past, on how he met the most beautiful God’s creation in a train journey, the haunting memories of the journey to Delhi, and the eyes that always puzzled him. Sid also realises the hindrance he brought in his friend love life, and does the repair work, which brought him close to the mystery girl Mallika. Nope. Anushka. Will he express his love to her, despite threatens he received from an unknown retired army man. Or his visit to Kolkata in search of the army man at the cost of his career helped him to settle the scores? What happened to Madhumita? Did he purge his sins?
Unfold the answers by reading this book. My verdict is…It was a great read! Unlike other fiction novels, this had a real life touch to it, which kept me engrossed. The plot is very well woven and presented well. The only negative point, which I felt while reading the book, was too many sub-plots to decipher. And at a point of time, I felt when this is going to end, but then the author brought back Madhumita’s episode again and did justice to it. Overall, I liked the book except for the cover. I felt that it could have been done better, but then that doesn’t take away any of the accolades, I have to give to this fantabulous book. I give this book a four-star rating.
