#BookReview: Spoilt For Choice by Poornansh Shrivastava


My mom used to quote: "Love all, trust few and do wrong to none."

Spoilt for Choice is a motorsport romance novel by author Poornansh Shrivastava published on 1st January 2017 by Half Baked Beans. The cover page of the book is very beautiful and simple having an image of a boy and a girl in love and a motorcyclist which is depicting the story. The shades black, white and red are very nicely used in the cover making it attractive.

Spoilt For Choice is a story of a teenage boy named Samarth who is passionate about motorcycle racing and wants to become a doctor and participate in motorcycle race. The story starts from when Samarth was in school and how he falls in love with Sanchi, who wasn't passionate about sports. The love story brews up between the two. The story is set in Jabalpur, Rajnandgaon, Chennai and Nagpur.

Spoilt For Choice is slow paced story revolving around how Samarth achieves his dream of becoming a motorcycle rider and started racing. The theme of the story is can a person move on from relationships to follow his/her dreams? The book starts from the prologue which is very beautifully penned down.The language of the book is simple and easy to understand.The characters are very well established. All the events are very well described in detail. The narration of the book is in first person. The way author has expressed the emotions is marvelous. At various instances the reader can visualise the events making the story all the more interesting and engaging. The chapters are named as Levels such as life at level 1,2,3 etc. The relations between mother and son, mother and father, Samarth and his friends are well described. The struggle of becoming a motorcycle rider and participating in race is a difficult one which is penned down marvelously.

Overall, a very engaging story and I would like to recommend this one to the people interested in reading a story having elements of dream, love, friendship and struggle.
