Life is What you Make It (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 130

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.

Life is What you Make it - Review !

Life is what you make it is Preeti Shenoy’s second book. Her first book, 34 Bubblegums and Candies is a lighthearted book about the journey called life and the bittersweet experiences that we get out of it. It’s delightful and it’s peppy. Her second book however, is in a totally different league.
Life is what you make it is a story about Ankita Sharma, a regular college kid. Her life is like that of any youngster, revolving around her friends, studies, with a few romantic swings thrown in as well ! She is smart, intelligent and very sure of what she wants out of her life. Life for her couldn’t

Only title is good - book is pathetic

i dont know what made author write this book .... i found it very very boring .... middle 100 pages were depressing llike hell .... i guess she googled 'BIPOLAR DISORDERS' and wote a book on what she found there .... and to my surprise this is a so-called 'National Bestseller' .... i dont know how many more (like me) got fooled with these two words .... i am a doctor by profession and there are tens and hundreds of such cases lying in our psychiatry ward ....

LIFE IS WHAT U MAKE IT ????? What importance does that hold when the main character of the story did nothing at all to improve her life

Highly Disappointing. Not worth buying even for 60 rupees

I 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 book is an example of how poor some of the present Indian writing is, especially with some of these overnight "bestselling" Authors.

I passed this book to some of my friends and asked them to read. Not just me, even they found this book to be a piece of useless writing.

Hate to be a bit harsh, but the truth is 'Life is what you make it' is not worth spending even 60 rupees. If you are so bo

Very True 'Life is what u make it'

I ordered this book from Flipkart around two months back. But yesterday I opened it finally. And also completed in just one sitting.
I liked the starting and the way author created the suspense. I kept guessing the reason and was proved wrong at the end. Its very well written and is also a lesson for people who try to commit suicide. It tells you how important is your life and its very easy to enjoy it.
All depend on you how you move forward. There will be situations in your life when you are highly frustrated but its all part of life. In book she got the doctor but in real life you get someo

life is what u make it...an ordinary story or an awfully inspiring one?

Just now i had completed reading this book. As i proceeded with the book i first found it simple, cos not many of the authors can make you long for more right from the first page, honestly, this one did not either. after covering 10-15 pages the storyline slowly began gripping me and made my eyes read faster to unveil what the end has in store both for me as well as for Ankita(the lead character which had been projected in the book). Nevertheless, as i reached the part where Ankita is ill and experiencing fits of some kind(wont reveal here or it will end your thirst to read the book altogethe

Unimpressive & Uninspiring

I 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?!!
This one can be easily skipped.

Life is what you make it: a review

I have been through the highs and lows of bipolar disorder today.


Well, not technically.

Preeti Shenoy's second book, a full length fiction called "Life is what you make it" is the story of Ankita Sharma, a young girl (my age in fact!) from a middle class Indian family. She's beautiful, she's talented and she knows it.
Then life takes a turn for he worse.

Yes, you've heard it before. The typical drama.
Except it is not. It is anything but.
It is a story about finding oneself and not having to force upon yourself the baggage of new age gung ho forced positivity. It speaks the truth.
