Preeti Shenoy is a name that resonates well when we talk about contemporary Indian fiction and literature. If you are an ardent fan of her novels and books, you must have realized that her story frames or templates are more or less common and banal.
They are stereotype in their own essence. For instance, the story will be featured around a girl who is about to get married or in second scenario is already married, then god knows what happens she turns rebellious. Go out and become addicted to her life's important craving like good partner, freedom, finance, travel, desires and so on. More like Bollywood movies - sad that she has yet not scored any contract with the producers.
Her latest book - The Rule Breakers – as name suggests is coming straight from her stereotype templates. However, what binds her stories with mass women is the real enigma. No doubt, she writes for women mass, except a few stories.
This is a story of Veda - a girl from a small hilly town. She is good and obedient and well-suited to her parents. Out of nowhere, she gets married to a guy who is based in Pune. Life changes and she comes to this city. In this city, she meets some characters and her incomplete story of romance and freedom and friendship gains flying wing and a new story is formed. But how and what all reasons actuated it, is the actual reading.
Whether you believe or not, Preeti is overhyped for her writing style. She is an average writer with some lucrative plots. Otherwise, there are scores of new Indian writers that are good at both - story and narration.
Anyway, it is a good book for light-hearted people, especially young ones. Give it a try if you feel she is a better-looking and better writer than the likes of Nikita Singh and Savi Sharma.
