3D of Life: Book Review
The book, '3D of life,' doesn't feel like a first time attempt by Pankaj Gupta. Like he mentioned in his acknowledgements, he has truly found his sweet tooth in writing. This IT professional has the ability to paint his story, so that his readers can see the story unraveling in front of their eyes. As the name suggests, 3D of life truly shows the various dimensions of life such as love, support and sacrifice.

About the book:

The book revolves around the protagonist, 'Sunil,' and his life's journey. The author has made the protagonist narrate his story in the flashback and has kept the story simple yet engaging. While most first time authors cannot keep their thoughts together and more often then not, their thoughts run amok, Gupta gave his audience a very simple story and wrote instances, which would add to the story.

Like Chetan Bhagat, Pankaj Gupta also has the ability to keep his readers engaged and ask the question 'what next.' The book was a page turner, for sure, and the simple story was the cherry in the cake. Everyone of us faces trials and tribulations in our life, but it takes a grounded man to make an entertaining story out of it. Sunil through his hardships of life weaves a story of love, emotions, passion and peace. All in all, the book has all the ingredient of a good television serial. 

The positives of the book:

The most important positive of the book is its simplicity. Not only the story, but the language is very simple and to the point. This is one of those books, which should be taken up by readers, who wants to read but cannot concentrate on books with flowery language.

The second positive of the book is the story. The story is not only simple, but relatable by most of us. Especially, people who comes from smaller towns and cities and knows that life can revolve around difficult situation, this book is an inspiration for them. That hard work can lead to success, is also an important lesson in the book and that everything in life comes to a full circle must also be remembered by the readers of the book.

The negatives of the book:

Everything has two side- the good and the bad. Good cannot come out if we do not understand the bad. In the same way, the book has a few cons. The most glaring negative being that the author in many cases have started a paragraph with a quotation mark, but seems to have forgotten to close it.

Secondly, the story, as it was simple was also very predictable. As Sunil was talking about his first love, it was evident that there would be some problem and while he was narrating the story of Sonali, it was again clear that she would eventually die.

Moreover, the author never concluded Amit's story. As a reader I would have wanted to know what happened to the struggling writer and how Sunil helped him to better his life.

All in all, the book was enjoyable and it can be read once.
