My assumption: A topic that was close to my heart. When I first read the blurb for the novel, I assumed it would be another cliched love tale. It was far from it and left me thinking deeply about the nature of love, friendship and everything in between.
Characters: Let Me Go…begins with Anshuman Kale aka Anshu has always been an introvert and studious boy. After relocating, he meets Indira Kelkar, who is engaged to Alisha (or Allie)… I found the characters of this book very interesting and fun.
A boy and a girl can become friends.
But can they remain friends forever?
Friendship between a girl and a boy is often called into question, whether it’s by community or by the individuals concerned.
This book beautifully depicts this relationship and allows us to put ourselves in Indira and Anshuman’s shoes.
Story Line: When Anshuman Kale first meets Indira Kelkar, all it takes to bring them close is a lost school bag, a missed school bus leading to a walk back to stave off the after-school hunger, I went home to make a few cutlets. Nothing will get in the way of the now best friends’ relationship as they grow up together. Or so they think!
Indira is torn between friendship and love as she approaches the end of her adolescent years and falls in love with a man five years her senior—neither of which she can let go. “However, as their lives begin to change—for the better, for the worse, and for the worse—Anshuman is forced to reconsider one of the things he had taken for granted. He and Indira will remain best friends for the rest of their lives.
Anshuman, who has been apart from Indira for years, is counting forward to marrying the love of his life, while Indira awaits the outcome of her euthanasia appeal. What could possibly have gone wrong?
