Till the Last Breath – Durjoy Datta


I received this book as a gift from a dear friend. It is a good steady paced read and the author touches upon so many emotions experienced by people who are faced with certain death. The approach towards life and the will to give one’s best contrasted with a feeling of pure negativity gives a see-saw type of mood changes.

The author has nicely captured many angles of suffering and the fragile nature of the human body even in the presence of a strong soul. Anger, sorrow, joy, rage, indifference, love, attachment, giving up, forgiveness and surprise have been weaved together beautifully. Definitely worth a read.

What a book...mannn i loved it! It is just simply amazing and definitely worth a read!
It is not cheesy, and much more realistic! The emotions the author has so clearly described and evokes in you is just undescirbable! From friendship, to love to compassion to optimisim to parental relationships, the book has it all!
I loved the way the author potrayed the story from every character's point of view! I loved Phiu and literally cried during the climax! The book is perfect! I just hate the way Durjoy kills of his characters! Luv the book, def worth a read!
