Book Review- The Girl Who Knew Too Much by Vikrant Khanna

Can true love bring someone back from the dead? Akshara is left devastated by her mother’s death and spends most of her time in solitude at the local park. One day, as she is sobbing uncontrollably, a young man named Harry approaches her. They become friends and Harry recounts to her a story about the miraculous reunion of a young woman and her dead boyfriend to help ease some of her pain. The story makes Akshara hopeful that she can perhaps see her dead mother again. But she soon realizes that Harry isn’t what he seems to be. Even the characters in his story seem dubious, almost unreal. So what is he hiding? And why? Is there any truth to his story at all? In this darkly suspenseful romance mystery, Akshara is left facing a truth that will make her doubt not just Harry but herself as well . . .


In a glance:

It is a story of being broken and being healed altogether. The story that stirs your insides and then allows for soothing as well. Losing loved ones has never been easy and it has to occur to every one of us. This is the story of a young girl who lost her mother in a car accident — a journey of how she soothed herself and what all came in her way while doing so.


Vikrant Khanna has done proper justice to his characters. May it be Akshara going down to the garden or Harry reciting the story of Sahiba. The narration is however appreciable but has lost the track on storyline sometimes hence creating boredom in the first-half. Though, it will grip you firmly as it proceeds. The climax and the conclusion make it worth reading.

Title and Book Cover:

The Title is apt but I found it bit too long for a book. The book cover, on the other hand, is good enough for a story like this.


4/5 ( A good one time read)
