Today, in an all new session of THE READING ROOM, we are going to review “Circle of Three” by Rohit Gore
Circle of Three is the story of three people who have lost all hope in life. One day, their paths cross and their destinies are forever changed.
Thirteen year old Aryan Khosla has no friends, rarely meets his busy and quarrelling parents, and is tormented by a gang of school bullies. He feels his birth was a mistake and thinks no one would notice if he disappeared from this world.
Thirty-three year old Ria Marathe, a successful scriptwriter, lost her husband and only son in a terrible accident, and later came to know her childhood sweetheart husband was cheating on her for a long time. Faced with a lifetime of misery, she has decided to commit suicide.
Sixty-three year old Rana Rathod, a long forgotten author, has carelessly lived off the trust created by his wealthy family and feels betrayed by his two children who sided with his wife during their brutal divorce thirty years back. He fears he is going to die a bitter man.
Will Aryan lose his childhood to his loneliness? Will Ria lose her life to her tragedy? Will Rana lose his dignity to his past sins?
Circle of Three is about finding a new beginning in life, of forgiving and ultimately, finding hope.
I brought this book a year ago and what clicked me to buy this book were the intriguing book cover and the blurb mentioning about the characters in the story in a way which will make you wish to know the whole story. I re-read this book now and I can still feel the freshness this story has brought to me. Circle of three introduced me to the world of Rohit Gore and his superb stories. The starting chapters explain the individual life stories of all the three characters. AND THEN THE CHARACTERS MEET…… The author has brilliantly executed the way these three people meet each other one fine day and thus completes the whole circle. They are complete strangers to each other yet something clicks between them and they become companions. All the characters have been brilliantly crafted but my favorite character is that of the thirteen year old Aryan Khosla. As the story moves forward the author brings forth many aspects of their lives and how they help each other in facing and solving all the turbulences and problems in their respective lives and this is what made me hooked till the end. The way of narration and this kind of story is not very seen and that makes it stand apart.
I recommend this book to be read by one and all. This book made me an ardent fan of Rohit Gore and I am sure you will all love this one.
