Overthinking is where your mind locks onto a topic or situation (quite often something negative), and it won't let go. you feel stuck in your head, going over and over a situation without taking any real action on it.
it consumes your energy and decreases your ability to make decisions. it also increases your likelihood of experiencing anxiety and worries over the task at hand.
we also overthink in an attempt to change the past or control the future — both of which are futile. rumination about the past and the future morphs into feelings of regret, shame, guilt, worry, and distress.
this book was recommended to me by my friend. she said read this book and tell me your genuine feedback.
so here it is.
i have read most of chetan bhagat's books from my school days, he was one of my favorite authors. coming to this book, the starting chapters were filled with typical indian love failure boy issues such as d***k and call with an ex, abusing her, and also cursing her current boyfriend, cry over her whatsapp dp, and playing all flashback memories.
to be honest, i didn't find it interesting, and then when zara lone( heroine) texted him on her birthday for a patch up and called to meet her in room no. 105, he climbs mango tree to reach her room through the window, and to his shock, she was found dead. then i felt this is going to be a thrilling ride.
keshav tries to solve zara's m****r case with his close friend saurabh. i liked their relationship. they were the best of friends and their part of the conversation was humorous.
next, the last three chapters were seriously too much, i don't know what to say about it.
in short, a kashmiri girl loves a rajasthani boy, breaks up with him and finds love in tamil brahmin boy( i wonder why the book mentions that south indians are black and ugly, etc.. soo much? like i have seen north indians being brown too, what's the difference?) and with it she has got into an affair with kashmiri army soldier. now, who murdered her on her birthday? is she involved with kashmir terrorists? did she want to rejoin with the hero? did the hero solve the case?
of course don't search for the logic, you will not find one.
as usual, i liked the writing style which was simple and light to read, i finished this book in a day and wondered why did he even try to write an unlove story?
