Book review: A Rose is not just a rose
March 4, 2018, 3:12 pm

It is probably just a coincidence that this book was launched at roughly the same time as on Valentine’s Day as the fictional story is centrally based on love. Albeit short in length, only in 3 chapters, the author has cleverly woven the stories of the characters beautifully. As you go deeper into reading, you begin to fantasize that you know Mr. Anthrax personally and his ‘interesting nonsense’ begins to bring a smile to your face. You wish the author would describe a little more in detail about Miss Violet. The cemetery drama is almost realistic. What starts as a simple conversation between two friends turns out to be love story that will touch the core of every reader’s heart.

With an apt foreword, the author supplies an in-depth analysis of various aspects of real life infatuation journeys often glossed over in our daily lives. I wished it was little lengthier and contained a fictional location that the story emulates from. Other than that, it is near perfect, and essential reading material for aspiring writers, those looking for fiction or romance yet short on reading time, or anyone who loves reading amazing short novels books. Gasper Crasto is an exceptional Goan writer, well known amongst writers’ communities and runs his own blog on ‘Gaspers World’.

I recommend ‘A Rose is not just a Rose’ for a short novel book that will linger a long time in the memories of those who read it.
