34 Bubblegums and Candies - An Inspiring Book

September 26, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 182

34 Bubblegums and Candies is the debut novel of an Indian author called Preeti Shenoy that deals with the experiences that a normal person faces in a lifetime. As the name suggests, 34 Bubblegums and Candies is a collection of 34 real life examples that are based on the author's life. This book is written with a dose of humor and actually is a very inspiring read.

Preeti was earlier an avid blogger who decided to publish her first book in 2007 that has since then gone on to win major laurels. She used to earlier write articles for some of the major newspapers in her country and had a size-able fan following. This also translated into the success of her book as it has gone on to top the charts and has featured in almost all the major best-seller lists in her country.

34 Bubblegums and Candies is a collection of real life incidents that the author has divided into bubblegum and candy. According to her, life is like a bubblegum that can get messy when the bubble bursts. Similarly, if we tend to bite off more than we can chew, then the candies of life get us stuck in difficult situations. Through some anecdotes and sad incidents, the author tries to capture every facet that human life has to offer.

Each of the 34 stories has a message for the reader and this is what I liked best about the book. The author does not tell you what must be done at the end of each chapter. Instead she leaves it for you to debate and find out what is the correct action required n every situation. Also, each situation may not have a happy ending but it is a must for us to experience because it holds a very important lesson in life for all of us.

As an example, the author tells us about the incident where she lost her father. Although she was saddened by his loss yet she realized that this is a way of life and we must come out stronger after such incidents. Through her heart rendering words, the author captures the beauty of each emotion in a perfect manner.

What I also liked in the book, 34 Bubblegums and Candies, was the message that there is joy to be found in the smallest of things. We all run after money and success but forget the most basic things in life, like family and kindness. It is, however, these small acts whose memories lie imprinted in our minds forever. I truly agree with the author when she says that life is a little bit like bubblegum and candy!
