#BookReview: If You Will Never Try, You Will Never Know by Sahil Mehta


If you Never Try, You Will Never Know is the debut book by author Sahil Mehta. It was published on 3rd June 2017 by Notion Press and is widely available online and at the bookstores. The cover page of the book is very simple having a picture of a girl and a boy holding hands. The colours used in the cover are yellow and green which are giving the cover a very subtle and a captivating look.

If You Never Try, You Will Never Know revolves around Robin who gets inspired by his mother to become a musician but is forced by his father to pursue education needed to join the family business, compelling him to leave the house at the age of eighteen and in order to make an independent living his dream turns into obsession leading him into a drug addiction. In the process of his choices he meets Aisha and they fall in love with each other. But his love life doesn't go well because of his over ambitious nature. On the other hand, Robin's roommate becomes his guide who motivates him to follow his heart and make a career in music.

If You Will Never Try, You Will Never Know is a very motivating journey revolving around music and dreams. It is a beautifully penned down book and is written in a very simple and easy language, having a very interesting and an engaging plot. The characters of the book are very well described and are very connectable. Various instances are very well described especially the description of the Vihan city and the dwarfs. The way the hallucinations are described are very well and a reader can easily relate with them. The author has tried to establish a suspense which is thrilling and is highly appreciated.The ending of the book is very unique and  the various twists are really unexpected. The story justifies the title very well. Overall, it is a blend of different themes such as love, friendship, trust, dreams and destiny.

I recommend this book to everyone who really want to read an intriguing book and want motivation.
