'The Guardian Angels' reviewed


The Guardian AngelsThe Guardian Angels by Rohit Gore
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

‘The Guardian Angels’ authored by Rohit Gore is his fourth novel but the first that I have read by him. It starts off very well, the first few pages are quite gripping but then soon it feels like watching a Bollywood movie. A son of ultra-rich parents, falling in love with the daughter of a trade unionist obviously from a middle class background, followed by the usual class conflict arguments. The middle of the book is nice and crisply written and quite an enjoyable read and the ending too is quite well conceived and executed.
If I had not to review the book I would not have possibly read right uptil the end because of the Bollywood type of plot but am glad I did continue to read as it turned out to be quite an enjoyable read after the ‘interval’.
Rohit Gore will do quite well writing movie scripts for sure.
If you like watching melodramatic movies then you will love this book. Else you can just skim through the first half, and get your teeth in, in the second half for a good read.
Buy it at Flipkart for Rs.90/-. Worth it :)

  2. I read in another review that this would make a nice Bollywood movie. I think many authors are now aspiring to write Bollywood scripts as novels!
