The Guardian Angels

Title: The Guardian Angels
Author: Rohit Gore
Publisher: Grapevine India
Genre: Fiction

The Guardian Angels by Rohit Gore is a conventional love story of an affluent reserved guy, Aditya and a middle-class jaunty girl, Radha; portraying how love crawls in, even with magnanimous differences in one’s backgrounds, personalities and aspirations and how destiny plays. 

Now when I say conventional, I don’t mean there is nothing new. Because that’s the strangest thing about love, it feels new each time. This novel has its perks and all the pleasantries expected from romance genre. Suffice to say it is a decent read. And it’s good to see that where new writers nowadays keep trying to fit in crude humor at any chance they get, author has abstain himself from such tricks, providing this story a grace which it deserves. 

This book has its flaws too, and those which are quite common among Indian fiction writers: mediocre language and screenplay-like story flow. Even with all the proper ingredients, the characters seem a bit restricted, like puppets and never really come alive to surprise you. Same goes with the story; all the twists and twirls one could wish for, convincing sub-plots and serene climax, but still it never engulfs the reader on a deep level. 

I have read Rohit Gore’s ‘Circle of Three’ before and since know his command over the words and his potential of a great story-teller. Unfortunately, I am not impressed with his current offering. I would love to see him try a slightly different genre or experiment with his narration technique. He does have all the tools, no doubt about it, now he just needs to widen the horizon and see beyond just market values. 

Overall, it is recommended for every Indian fiction reader, especially for the fans of romance genre. Hope it will improve the taste of many, as it certainly sets the bar a level high. 

Rating: 3/5
