Life Is What You Make It is a fictional story about a strong female character whose life takes unexpected turns and how she uses her indomitable spirit to make the most of it.
Summary Of The Book
Life Is What You Make It is a story about a young female protagonist whose life gets shaken by her destiny in a highly unexpected manner. Set across two Indian cities in 1989, the story begins when Ankita is shown to be reading letters that she exchanged with Vaibhav. And here onward, the reader is taken on a flashback story that relates the life of Ankita and how she ended up in a hospital.
Ankita is in her twenties and belongs to a conservative middle class family. Her parents are so strict that they do not even like her being friends with guys. She is a smart, career-oriented, confident, young, attractive, sweet, and happy go lucky girl. She has lots of friends and is wooed by many boys at her college. Her college life is what every youngster dreams of but Ankita does not underestimate the importance of studies as well. She secures a seat in a leading management school. She is one of the most happening girls in the college. However, at times she is haunted by some issues that she faced in her past.
Life seems to be sailing smooth for Ankita until one fine day when she is admitted to a mental hospital. Life suddenly snatches everything that Ankita had in her world in a cruel twist of fate. How did things change so badly? How will Ankita take this sudden blow of destiny? Will she survive it? Will she ever be able to live a normal life?
A love story at heart, this tale of unconquerable human spirit shows how Ankita does not succumb to her destiny and decides to fight back. It is an inspiring and moving account of determination and faith as Ankita challenges what destiny throws at her. It is a story that makes the reader question the very concepts of sanities and teaches the fact that life is what one makes of it. Moreover, the simple language and narration of Life Is What You Make It emphasizes that problems are never permanent and it is one’s spirit that can carve the path to one’s life.

Highly Disappointing. Not worth buying even for 60 rupeesI read this book, or more accurately tried to read this book. I was unable to finish this book because the author Preeti Shenoy tests your patience through an average story and horrible writing.

This review might answer most of your questions about this book.Hope so!!!I have got delivered this book within the 2 days of my order and a great salute to the delivery team of flipkart once again. well,How this book differs from others is that the narrator is a lady and the story starts with the protagonists infatuation which lasts for quite a long time with her school mate,then comes her love with her peer and its break up,then her short-time date with another guy and her bipolar disorder suffering due to parental pressure and her cure of the same. finally,let me jot down its plus and minus.

Unimpressive & UninspiringI had bought this book after reading many good reviews here. But I was highly disappointed after reading it. Though the summary might sound intriguing and deep, it deals with everything that life is in a very shallow manner. The first half is pure popcorn affair, while the second half is dry and bland. The writing is pretty average and at times quite amateurish. The story of Ankita doesn't inspire you or move you at all. The only good thing about this book is its price. But then, wasn't that one of the reasons I was tempted to buy it?!!

"The purpose of living is the celebration of being alive"A worthy book to read. I am sure as u start engrossing into it you find the characters ankitha, abhi,vibhav.. very close to any of your friends. A truely heart touching book that practically exposed the indian conservative families and the emotions of the present generation who can neither adopt it nor revolt against it. Ankitha's character is very carefully moulded with each and every senstive aspect that a teenage girl undergoes in her life. Finally the message for the readers induces inspiration and at last when you complete this book you will experience a feeling that you had read a very g… (Expand)

I want my money back!Yes, I too got trapped by reading the positive reviews that this book has got on this site. I am sure many would already be feeling cheated and concur that they have wasted their hard earned money buying this. I cannot think of anything compelling about this book, at all. Absolute weak story (if at all we can call it one), poor narration, and irritating at most of the times. There is no entertainment value to it. And I have no clue why the author and most of the readers alike claim it to be an inspiring tale. I don't feel a bit for the protagonist. She did nothing which could inspire anyone. T… (Expand)
