  • Blurb: I am Prachur, a twenty-three year old guy from Shimla and I want to tell you my story. I don’t claim that my life is particularly worth reading, especially the first twentyone years. But things did become interesting by the time I came to finish my degree in engineering. At the time I was like every other guy of my age — pretentious and clueless about my future. I loathed the very idea of a mundane job. I felt that my lack of clarity about my future was my biggest problem. Imagine what I felt when I found out that Neera, my girlfriend, was pregnant! Quarter life Crisis is the story of my coming of age and my quest for happiness.


My view on title: – The title ‘Quarter life crisis’ seems to indicate the crisis that is occurred during the quarterly part of one’s full life period. If we suppose the full life period time is 100 years, the quarterly part of life period is 25 years. So, according to the title, the book is based on quarterly part of one’s life and during the quarterly time period, there are occurred so many problems in one’s life- so runs the title. I think the title has been chosen very uniquely. It relates to the story.

How is the cover? – The cover is not so attractive that can catch a reader’s attention to its but it’s meaningful regarding to the story. If anyone is from biology background he can understand the cover very well. In cover, there are two cells (what type of cells –I don’t know) representing two life periods – from the left side, first one indicates the childhood life period and the second one indicates the period of quarterly life. Here it is showed those two cells or life periods are interlinked to each-other. After that these two cells are got attached together and forms another new cell that is blanked in the cover. It is interesting.

My view on blurb:- The blurb portion is short and edited well. It is enough to give an idea of the story to the readers. It is written so nicely.

How is the story?: – The author has described the life during quarterly part of one’s full life period and the problems that have been faced by one during that time. The story is about pregnancy before marriage. The author has plotted the story very well. The content has been edited well. Author has used lucid language so that one can understand the meaning of each word easily. He has narrated the story in a unique way. All characters are characterized well . Some can feel boring while reading the book because of extreme description of characters and the story but if anyone reads the story with patient he or she will enjoy it. It is a tremendous story that can change your thinking style. I would not reveal anything related to the story but I must recommend this book to all adults.

My Rates : 5/5
