After writing an adult fiction “Girls Hostel – Unspoken Memories”, it was actually not predictable that author Deepanshu Saini could give such a different master piece. A love story breathed during a trekking trip. I love the way author mentioned his journey to the mountains. It was really nice to see how author explained the expedition of love birds in their own form. According to Deepanshu Saini, this trip is his real life experience. All places, all details he provided with are real and one can visit them easily. I must say, he has done a beautiful work as beautifully he narrated the mountain ranges of Himalayas. About the climax, it is very simple, but the way it ended was actually different from all other love stories I ever read. I agree with the author when he said “Love always finds its way but if you love some just say”. Story proves it.
The story in itself is a remarkable journey from the mountains, where Dhruv is in the deep dark pit of depression from six months emotionally afraid, afraid to Love, afraid to Live. Where, Anjali on the hunt of dying and consuming love, but doesn't try every other guy on the list.
The curiosity: Will Dhruv be able to control himself not to get struck once again by the girl's detachment? Or Will this trekking trip hold true love for Anjali's destiny? Will surely not allow you to keep the book aside.
As of Dhruv and Anjali, Sandeep’s role was another inspiring character in the story. The way, Mr. Tolia, leading instructor of the troop motivated his team was also another good job. I must say, if this is real tour, I would surely like to have same like this.
The story in itself reveals with many answers like - Could any adventurous journey make you fall in love with your life? Does nature hold the power to teach you the language of love, happiness and above all trust? Love at first sight - myth or reality? A single smile so contagious that alters the pain of your life? And yes, like me you all will sure find all the answers in affirmative.
In precise, ‘By The Mountains’ is a story filled with misconceptions between Dhruv and Anjali, ending on a memorable memoir that every lover craves for.
I would ask everyone to especially read this book if they are mountain lover. I give this book 3.5* out of 5.
Read on to climb through Dhruv and Anjali's journey.
