“Why Not Me?” by Anubhav Agrawal Book Review

  • Title: Why Not Me?
  • Author: Anubhav Agrawal
  • Pages: 203

A hopeless romantic, Anubhav had been looking for the love of his life. When Zoya accepted his online friend request, he felt an instant connection. Soon, he was falling deeply in love with her.

For four years, first as friend and then as boyfriend, Anubhav waited for the day that Zoya would fall for him too. It never came. He had fallen in love with a person who had never really cared about him. He thought that if Zoya ever left him, he would be devastated. Turns out, it was the best gift ever.

In Why Not Me? A Feeling of Millions, Anubhav looks back on his roller-coaster ride of being crazy in love to heartbroken, expressing in words what countless others have felt. His message? A broken heart can make you a stronger person.

Already a national bestseller, Why Not Me? is a story of learning to love yourself again.

“Love doesn’t provide you with benefits or losses, it just happens. No conditions and no guidelines. And it’s never in control.”

The book follows the story of the protagonist, Anubhav’s experience with love. This book is based on the author’s life following the stories of his teenage and first love. The storyline takes you on a journey of seasons of love. While the story does focus on love, it is much more than that. You get to see the character development of the protagonist and learn valueable lessons. The author picks up an important topic while providing the reader with love story.

“I should understand the value of distance and how it doesn’t make things deteriorate but strengthens them.”

The plot gets predictable after a point. A few points were slowed and exaggerated. Language could have been better, there were quite a few grammatical errors in the book. The cliche plot and the language were major turn downs for me.

This book can be a great pick for young readers who are trying to get new perspectives on heartbreaks and love.
