Have you ever felt like missing your schooling days? Would you want to relive those memories? If your answer is YES to any one or both, your search ends here.
With Teenage Diaries, Saurabh has created a beautiful story with few characters. The protagonist Ghanshyam along with other main characters like Vikram,Tanya, Rishabh, Rahul, Aneya, Sneha, Sandy, Armaan, Pallavi, Aakash among others.
What I liked the most about the story is the simplicity and the way it was narrated. The story has essentially covered all that we all would have witnessed or experienced in our schooling life including the likes of playing book cricket, FLAME among others.
It talked in detail about the first drink, smoke, love, kiss, friendship, being adventurous in school apart from bunking, fights, confusion, excitement etc which has added more value to the story. It may not be a typical reflection of all of us but for sure the story has some traces of us in it.
Initially I felt what would be there in this 319 page book and was bit bored but as I sat and started reading it, I could not stop reading them until I completed it. The story has melancholy and tragedy but it has a positive ending.
Buy the book and re-live your school memories.
