The Story of Tublu- A Review

The past week was very interesting and filled with challenges and surprises which took me to highs and also held me down. Happy hours, football, cricket, exams, copying assignments, and then the wonderful package reached me.

Adorned with the author’s signature, the decorated copy of ‘The Story of Tublu’ presented itself to me. This is Jahid Akhtar’s debut novel, and he, as a fellow blogger, gave me the opportunity to be one of the first people to review the book. Jahid, hearty congratulations are in order!

The book is a story of a father and son, Bipin and Tublu, whose life is wrecked by a flood and they have to move to a new place. At their new destination, they meet the Sharmas and this brings a turn in both their lives. The story rotates around the hardships faced by the duo, the new formed bonding between the Sharmas and the father-son duo, the friendship and the unsaid love between Tublu and Maina, the Sharmas’ daughter.

 The book captures various scenarios of the life of an engineer, and keeps the reader connected with a simple yet engaging plot. The plot is quite the life of an engineer and that’s also one of the reasons why I liked the book. Keeping it simple is the key, and Jahid has very nicely managed that while not allowing the book to drop from the reader’s hands.

To sum up, the book is a good read and would be a good choice for your bookshelf. The book costs Rs. 200 and is available on Flipkart and Amazon.
