Book review of Did She Love Me? (Author-Jyotirmoy Mazumdar)

The major problem Indian Publishing Industry is facing now days is the growing number of titles based on love, romance, and relations. In this situation, as a reader, it is very tough to select a good book when you stand in a book-store surrounded by hundreds of titles that are hardly different from each other. Unfortunately, the readers often end up avoiding some quality books thinking that they are just another common love stories.
‘Did She Love Me?’ from Jyotirmoy Mazumdar is one such book that should not be missed. If you miss this one, you have actually missed a great, unforgettable read.
The book is about an IITian (well, the young Indian authors are highly inspired by this word). However, this is not just another engineering student’s story; there is a lot more to offer from the author’s side. This book is more about family, struggle, and a question that has formed the basis of this book “Did she love me?”

The author gave a very interesting introduction of the book on a blog, something that forced me to read it: Feel the story and the pain he (Jayrish, the protagonist of the story) gets all through his stay in Delhi while you flip through the pages of the book, and wonder how could a guy forget everything for his love, how could he leave his family, career, friends just to be with the one he loves truly.
It was tough to keep this book down once I started reading it. The romantic poems, the love letter, the emotional dialogues, the SMS conversations . . . the book is full of such ingredients. The simple yet mesmerizing sentences like, “Babu won’t like it if his baby will be hungry all night,” will give you an unexplainable feeling of innocence.
I would give 3.5 out of 5 to this simple yet mesmerizing debut novel of Jyotirmoy Mazumdar.  An awesome story, with an awesome cover, and a gripping writing, ‘Did She Love Me?’ will be another worth book in your collection. Go for it!
