    Dreams in Prussian Blue is good first book by Paritosh Uttam Paritosh stays away from the predictable plot and instead builds a uniue plot through a racy and compelling narrative I really liked the story it was a page turner with effective flashbacks and interesting characters especially Naina who has to face the conseuences of her decisions Being a non conformist myself I also liked Paritosh's subtle views on life and materialism through Michael's voice

    An excellent read from start to finish The storyline weaves in and out of the past and present seamlessly while leaving you wondering what ending the author has in store for you You feel the emotions of the characters as they experience the effects of the choices they make and that circumstances make for them The best books are those that are able to take you out of your surroundings and into playing the story in your mind and 'Dreams in Prussian Blue' does that with great success

    First year student Naina is utterly smitten by her senior Michael acknowledged genius and resident rebel of the Fine Arts College Mumbai So when he proposes that they drop out of college and live in she readily agrees But life with Michael soon turns into an emotional roller coaster Temperamental opinionated and incredibly selfish he expects Naina to run the household so that he is free to paint Naina tries her hand at several odd jobs but when an accident leave Michael blind their life together begins to come undone as she can only helplessly watch And in trying to pull it together Naina is driven to being what she has never been a liar and a cheat Will Michael forgive her when he learns the truth? Will she forgive him for what he has done to her?This is one Metro read or young India fiction which is done correctly At 200 odd pages it is fast paced emotionally compelling and takes you to an enjoyable roller coaster ride I have often complained earlier in my book reviews about debut novels being overly long and self indulgent However this book is a perfect example to show you don't have to write to engage the readers no spoon feeding is reuired people are intelligent enough to understand subtle nuances Shuffling between the past and the present we are simultaneously told the story of how the couple fall in love and how they are dealing with their marital life This happens till the middle of the book when both the screenplay collides and merge into one in which Michael is now blind and making rigorous efforts to paint againThe character of Naina is written with warmth and affection Her long suffering live in life with Michael and continuous struggle to make the ends meet touches chord in your heart You will instantly develop a dislike for Michael who is obnoxiously self centered but can't help sympathizing when the accident leaves him blind He hardly cares for materialistic pleasures because in his own inner world he is contend with just painting and being fed by Naina It is commendable that the author even though skating on a thin plot on paper still manages to develop these characters sufficiently enough so that you can relate to them Their bickering and complications grief and irony in their life is what stays with you till the endOn a deeper level blue colour plays an important role in delving into the emotional psyche of Michael and his relationship with Naina I don't know how much the author knows about painting but even if he has researched it to write this book and incorporate into screenplay it is uite enthralling I almost wanted to know a little about painting after finishing this book The description of Prussian blue colour paintings almost defines the temperamental nature of their relationship; the whims and fancies attached to it the bouts of anxiety and anguish related to it Also how the art work is defined in terms of perceptions of the buyers and NOT really on the basis of uality is almost a satirical take on the thriving painting businessThere are some niggles right at the end The climaxed is wrapped up with such ease it just appears the writer was running short of ideas or time or both It is never fully comprehended how Naina's illicit relationship to a friend's wife is exposed The writer goes for an hurried ending not investing enough in the emotional metamorphosis which Michael suffers when the truth is out in the open The climax is all good in the poetic justice sense but since it is done so conveniently it looks contrived Apart from this certain dialogues at times are far fetched and almost clingy to read But as i said these are mere nitpickings in an otherwise competent confident debutI am going with 355 for Paritosh Uttam's debut novel Dreams in Prussian Blue It reassures the pleasures of a urban story rightly told For most of the narrative it moves swiftly without any issues till the bump right in the climax But still i make a strong recommendation to read it won't take much time and will left you with a goody good feeling Sometimes that is the best thing of reading a book isn't it

    For a detailed review read for a uick read a good story but not a big novel? Try Metro reads short novels they are just what you need I was very happy to see these since a lot of people in my network want to read but donot have patience for fat novels This was the first one i read especially because the very first page gripped meIs love always perfect and beautiful? We always imagine so as literature is full of romeo and juliet stories since forever but does that happen to everyone? No and there are many such casesone of them depicted through this storyIt ofcourse is a story of a couple met each other in college fall in low parents displeased so start living in The girl too much for the love of her life leaves her ambition behind and becomes the man of the house as the guy is off to realize his dream of being a painter She believes in his passion but is put off by his carelessness as the reality starts biting Money life fun etc starts becoming important problems as the man just fails to realize Just the day she tries her last of multiple uncountable tries to get his carrier set he meets with an accident and looses sight Now the option of leaving him ends and life is bit by bitter realities of daily needs She does everything for him even gives up herself in every way as he tries to paint without sight The problem happens when he discovers in his first successful auction of life all done by her and their financial crisis finally ending that all his paintings were nothing but BLUE He never understands that it was the financial crisis that made her do so Can such a man be ever loved? Will he change? What happens next? Read itA good realistic story Well written and crisp

    This book was a disappointment probably because I had high hopes for it The story seemed interesting and it was so refreshing to read a book about metro India where the people seemed familiar to me The writing was pretty crisp and of a good uality so different from other Indian writers Instead it turned out to be one unrelentingly grim tale The back and forth in time narrative got muddled as it went on and beyond a point you just stopped sympathising with the protagonist Naina because she had absolutely no reason to stay in the situation Perhaps she had her reasons you can give her that kind of leeway but seeing the kind of strength and resolve the character has otherwise you simply can't understand her decisions because it is not explored enough in the book And there's a skeevy non consensual sex situation in the book which I think the author must be blamed for not handling wellThe big twist in the ending was extremely unconvincing and contrived and the final chapter of closure was just so lacklustre Fine agreed that in reality things don't always turn out better for people but Naina's resolution was just so uninspired Ugh this book could have been SO MUCH better That's the worst part of it all

    A very well written book The story wasn't as breezy as I had expected but was poignant and well sculpted out nevertheless I felt bad for Naina for most part of the book and nursed a secret desire to hurl something at the selfish Micheal So yeah a book that makes a reader feel such things for the characters is definitely a good one The writing is simple and crispWhat I also liked was that the book went back and forth between the past and present and that made the narrative interestingOverall a good bitter sweet taleMy rating 355


  7. Gopika Gopika says:

    this book by paritosh uttam is a very good depiction of lovebetrayal and revengeit also gives a clear picture of how destiny can play with people's lifeit is brilliantly written with the past and the present in uick successionthe story goes really well until the climaxeven though the story is wonderfully saidthe climax could have been a little bit improved for in this bookthe climax rather disappoints the reader than providing a good twist or breakbut one must say that apart from minor flawsthis book is bang on

  9. Siddharth Krishna Siddharth Krishna says:

    A fast paced novel with a refreshing story I enjoy reading books by Indian authors and the fact that the book has been made into a great movie speaks volumes about the uality of story I felt the ending could have been slightly better but then again perfect ending is desirable but seldom attainable

    Nice title Liked the style of writing much better than the Chetan Bhagats and Ravinder Singhs i think Also to top that the book had a realistic bent making it an unpredictable believable and good read
