EX: a twisted love story. (OCTOBER '13)

What will you do if one day a svelte and sexy girl comes up to you and says she is your ex ? And the only thing you know about her is that you don’t know anything about her. Neel, an aspiring author, meets Nivrita at the Jaipur Literary Festival. Though Nivrita says she is his ex, he remembers nothing and yet everything about her seems to lure him to unravel the mystery she personifies. The more he is drawn to her, the more Neel feels guilty because he is already in a steady relationship with Titiksha, the love of his life. When Nivrita makes a tempting offer to Neel, which he accepts for his own good, his life slowly begins to spiral out of control while Titiksha starts turning into a stranger until Neel realizes there’s much more than his eyes can see and mind can recollect.
Novoneel Chakraborty, bestselling author of A Thing Beyond Forever, That Kiss In the Rain and How About a Sin Tonight? brings forth yet another poignant story, twisted in essence. EX will make you drop your jaws wide open. You can order your copy here: http://bit.ly/1bvQXzv

Hello sir..my husband and I love your books and your writing style and this book was no exception. Amazing plot... but I was surprised sir, why does this novel seem to border a bit on the sleazy side? You have the knack of capturing subtle romantic moments in words which transforms ur novels to classics... then why do u have to resort to sleazy stuff to sell your novel sir! ??

Novoneel Chakraborty said...

Hi Anu,

Firstly thanks to your husband and you for appreciating my work.

The kind of illness the protagonist of this book suffers from actually heightens one's libido and because some of the portion is written from his point of view so it's important for me as a writer to get in to the head of the character to bring him out the way he is in front of the readers. Moreover, Nivrita is trying to seduce him in the major part of the novel which also brings in the sexuality part in the story. Whether something is 'sleaze' or not is a personal opinion which I respect. I personally don't see it as 'sleaze' because in this book of mine sexuality is a means to get to the point which is not sexuality alone. Regards.

Thank you sir for taking time off your busy schedule to reply to my query. A convincing reply! No wonder you are a bestselling author..

Subrato Goswami said...

Just finished your book, but still can't get over it. The climax was unbelievable. This really the most twisted story I have ever read. Especially what Neel's parents did for him to bring him to normal life.
But if could written little more on what happened after Neel & Titiksha met & confessed their love, it would have been great. Like did they marry, etc. What happened when Neel's parents found that the psychiatrist is actually Titiksha......
Could you write a sequel to this novel......?

Novoneel Chakraborty said...

Hello Subrato,

Thanks for reading and appreciating 'EX'.

I understand the point you made but I thought the point of the book was whether Neel owns up to his love for Titiksha and if she accepts him. I guess a lil bit left to the reader's imagination is always good.

Best Regards

Indeed it is a very twisted love story. While reading the same, when i came to middle of the story wherein the main male character is getting more and more confused by the series of events taking place (death of that gal n flesh in washing machine, etc), I had started feeling irritated that what the hell is happening.. But after that when the story proceeds further and when the reality is presented of the past and pain of that young girl, my god.. thats when you understand everything that has been happening and the reason behind it. You have presented the love, hate, pain, suffering, everything so beautifully. The depth of love and hatred a person can have for another. I do not know the art of putting my words the way you and other authors do, but this is how I can present what I felt about the book. Although the words have not done justice of how much i felt for your novel. Thanks for writting. Awaiting your yet another one. Love.

Novoneel Chakraborty said...

Thank you so much dear! :)

surbhita said...

Some lines hit u under the belt....
"There are two kinds of love
one that exists as it has not been tested
other
because it has passed all the tests...

Imagine each and every person craving n seeking for that love which has passed all tests ....

For many ..life sccumbs ...between these two lines...

Subham Kumar Sahoo said...

Hi, sir. Myself Subham Kumar Sahoo . I just got a book named "That kiss in the rain" from school book fair. I have just started reading but I am much impressed by the way you have expressed the feelings of Pallavi and Harsil.Their thoughts and sayings are quite natural. There is also a heart touching description that connects me with the life of the characters.This is the first novel that I read. Before I have never heard of you but now I am quite satisfied. Thank you sir for the smile and freshness that I always have after reading your novel......
But I do not understand why you have written on the beginning "To all those Angels who saved my life ........,precisely."
THANK YOU.

Novoneel Chakraborty said...

Thanks Subham. Hope you like my other books too. Those angels were those people who saved from an accident site. So have dedicated the book to them.
