Description

This is a story that was meant to be told. Also, the story is not short and had to be narrated in a different way. Here is the story of the lives of five friends who started off as engineering students.

Summary of the Book

And We Remained is a gripping story with a unique narration style. It is a 51,000 word novel, and the story is set in the 1990’s when India was going through major socio-economic changes.The story is about the lives of five engineering students who have been friends for a long time – Sahir, Sandeep, Gopal, Anand and David. It also speaks of the women in their lives, especially Wardha. The story is intertwined and is told by each of the friends from a first person perspective of the given event. The events that had taken place during their college years are a contrast to the lives that each of them live in their later lives. Even after years, they have kept in touch and narrated their experiences in life both in India and abroad through e-mails. This is an amusing story of their individual journeys through college, love, heartbreak, prison, politics, alcohol, strip clubs, US and Europe.

A uniquely narrated not so uncommon tale !

A very light read. Style of narration is the icing on the cake for this short novel. You feel as if you are one of the characters of the story that is unfolding in front of you. At the end, you even feel it would be nice if you knew the characters personally. The transitions from flash-back to present are so well timed and elegantly managed, that you hardly feel any discomfort adjusting to the settings. With the language easy to comprehend, you can easily finish it in one sitting. A decent de...

Interesting story told in a different style.

‘And We Remained’ is a debut novel by designing professional Asad Ali Junaid. I loved the cover of the book because the cover says everything about the content of the book. Designed obviously by Asad Ali Junaid. This is what happens when a designer, design for himself.

The story is described in a different and unique way. At the very beginning it struck to me that the narrating style is a bit confusing but as the story goes on I find this style unique and innovative. This story is narrated i...

A light and refreshing read!

'And We Remained' tells the story of not just 5 friends, but the story of every college student..studies, love, breakups,the raging hormones (at least in the case of guys), occasional but inevitable tiffs with the college authority etc. It describes every kind of emotion that a person goes through in his/her college life. You are neither a teenager or a complete mature adult (emotionally and mentally). The many challenges that you must face to achieve your goals and dreams and the happiness ...

Usual College Drama with good narration

First Thanks Asad for giving me this book for an Honest feedback.

About the book.
The first thing which stuck me was the narration style with alternate chapters representing the story and Email Dialogue about the same incident in the story.
Pretty unique and took some time getting used too. I liked it .
The conversation in the mails was pretty interesting.

The story revolves around a bunch of guys who start in the college and end up in there life.
The story contains the normal college Drama...

A Refreshing Read with unique narration

We've read college stories before, and a lot of them with an engineering background too. What's unique about 'And We Remained' is the style of narration. Each chapter is narrated in first person by each protagonist and there are other chapters with email conversations. The era (1990s and the next decade) is very interesting and not much is being written about people who lived and studied in school/college in the pre-mobile phone period.

The characters are well sketched and their woes are po...
