Book Review: Few Things Left Unsaid by Sudeep Nagarkar

Few Things Left Unsaid by Sudeep Nagarkar is a tasteless novel that claims to be a work of romance. There is no story in it, neither setting nor plot. Why and how people love his books and make him behave like a best-seller writer is indeed a matter of concern.

It is just an ordinary tale of a student pursuing engineering. These stories are very common and predictable. Writing was too lame – leaves no influence or impact on the readers - a below standard book by all means. Coming to the story we have two protagonists in this book, one is Aditya and the second one a girl called Riya. They are in the same engineering college and in the same class at least for the first year. After this that all drama starts: love at first sight, proposing the girl in a most romantic way, and then celebrating birthdays, talking on phone all night and chatting and so on. To their company are few good sane friends, a very common spicy thing that happens everywhere in India.

Well, their love story sucks and all the time sounds stagnant. There is nothing much that the writer could do to add pace in the story. He is continuously, page by page, describing the same life i.e. both are going to the college, missing each other, at times kissing each other, talking on phone, getting extra worried for exams, getting KTs in exams, partying with friends, getting into smoking and drinking.

Also, the author did not take any pain in describing the physical attributes of both the characters. Readers could not guess how their male hero looked and for the girl he described her provocative dressing style – and from time to time he asserted that Riya is looking sexy. That’s all from the master of romance. It is a pure shit from Sudeep. Then they break up…weep…cry and all that warts and all drama… and in the end they meet for no strong reason. Characterization is at worst, with no sweeps at all. Read it if you like to see yourself crying out of sheer frustration.

Next Read: All Rights Reserved for You by Sudeep Nagarkar


  1. Very true review. I disliked this tasteless story too. Its written in such a childish language & has a shit of immature dialogues. Such a basic story, sudeep has just dragged it.

  2. Honestly what was the author thinking while writing this? The premises and setting of the story are cliches, and characterisation is the worst. The book yells true love many a times, yet ends up in toxicity and sexualization. I haven't read much books by him so that I don't know about them, but I really regret about reading this one.

Poem Summary: Ozymandias by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Even the brightest of metal, one day decays with passage of time. The throne name of Egyptian King Ramesses is Ozymandias. It was his dearest desire to preserve himself forever by building a huge statue that he thought would never tumble down. Stanza 1: I met a traveller from an antique land Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand, Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown, And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command, Tell that its sculptor well those passions read Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things, The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed; Summary: The poet narrates the poem through the eyes of a traveler who seems to have come back from a remote and far-away land, referring to Egypt.
