THE PLOT AT A GLANCE-
Krish got attracted to ‘Avantika’ from the first day he saw her. They were very happy in their life. Suddenly the girl that Krish wanted to accompany him on his journey back home reappears as Avantika’s cousin ‘Kanak’. He started getting attracted to her. Avantika got to know about them and now she has to choose between her own happiness and the Kanak’s. The fate was questioning their relationship. Harry and Smriti tried their hell out to make them understand but all in vain. Is it their Love? Or it was just an attraction? Or it’s obsession?… The answer lies within them…
November-the-word sounds exactly like what November-the-month actually is.
An amber-tinted month, the warm hue of tortoiseshell, when daylight saving time begins its hibernation, and the bright colours of autumn have fallen away. The month sounds as brown as North Indian trees — the yellowy brown of oak, the syrupy brown of pine. The brown of comfort, of snuggling in, of drawing close against the coming winter. November. No-vemm-brrr. The word itself is cosy, mellow, and contained. This is the month for putting away and preparing. For closing down and burrowing in. Here, in Indian distinct seasons, October teases, urging us to cling to warmer weather even as it wrenches the season away.
I feel the title is very much appropriate and cosy with the novel. The month of romance gets twirled and twisted as we proceed through the story, keeping romance as the main aspect.
REVIEW OF THE BOOK:
Romance is a very special feeling, completely different from the rest of the emotions. We feel romance as-They were from two different worlds. Two entirely different people. But upon their coming together, they created- they found- their own path and together they had their own world and in their own world, they were the same. Everyone else outside of it- everyone else was over there. Away. And they together- they together were here. They were right here. They were the same. But sometimes this romance gets nasty when there is an introduction if a third person in the scene. The story revolves primarily revolves around Krish and Avantika who defines us the spirit of novel.
But as we know Falling in love is like getting hit by a truck and yet not being mortally wounded. Just sick to your stomach, high one minute, low the next. Starving hungry but unable to eat. Hot, cold, forever horny, full of hope and enthusiasm, with momentary depressions that wipe you out.
It is also not being able to remove the smile from your face, loving life with a mad passionate intensity, and feeling ten years younger. Love does not appear with any warning signs. You fall into it as if pushed from a high diving board. No time to think about what’s happening. It’s inevitable. An event you can’t control. A crazy, heart-stopping, roller-coaster ride that just has to take its course. Things change as Krish falls in love with Avantika’s cousin-Kanak. The month of November gets completely twirled.
We all know November to be a very cheerful and romantic month. In November, some birds move away and some birds stay. The air is full of good-byes and well-wishes. The birds who are leaving look very serious. No silly spring chirping now. They have long journeys and must watch where they are going. The staying birds are serious, too, for cold times lie ahead. All berries will be treasures. But treasures sometimes open up to something which we do not expect. The journey of these three characters can be reciprocated in that fashion.
If you want to know what happens to the relationship, or does November gets twirled completely you have to read the twirled November.
WHY YOU SHOULD READ THIS BOOK-
• VERY INTERESTING AND A TRENDING LOVE STORY
• BEAUTIFUL CHARACTERIZATION AND PLOT DEVELOPMENT.
• THE FEELING OF ROMANCE WILL ENTANGLE YOU AS NOVEMBER GETS TWIRLED.
Drawbacks (believe me, the negative points are negligible if you compare to the positive aspects)
• The blurb could have been made more interesting and a bit elaborative.
• The cover and illustration are very common. Maybe it could have been made more unique and attractive.
• A great piece of story weaved with emotions throughout.
• Have you ever watched a leaf leave a tree? It falls upward first, and then it drifts toward the ground, just as you will find yourself drifting towards the emotions attached with the story.
Overall I would like to rate the book 41 on a scale of 50.

Once again i would like to say that quoting Dickinson “It is also November. The noons are more laconic and the sunsets sterner, and Gibraltar lights make the village foreign. November always seemed to me the Norway of the year. —— is still with the sister who put her child in an ice nest last Monday forenoon. The redoubtable God! I notice where Death has been introduced, he frequently calls, making it desirable to forestall his advances.”
― Emily Dickinson, Lettere 1845-1886
