As we already know that Durjoy Datta has quite matured as a writer and he has stopped writing those repeated stuffs anymore. Now, he has started examining people and finds out their characterization and attributes.
Then he develops his own characters and his book rotates around almost every character that he describes even once in the book. He has stopped writing sex scenes after every 10 pages and in fact, this pages book "Hold My Hand" does not a single scene that can make you feel "Repetitive Durjoy is back".
This has assured that his audience will keep downloading his book to see how much more has their author being improved. What I like about Durjoy's writing is that he writes a book as a book without any other ambitions attached to it otherwise many writers write a book as if a Bollywood movie is going to be made of it as soon as it releases.
I liked the initial pages in the book where the characters are described and we are told what each of them are dealing with so that we can understand their state of mind once we read the scenarios pages ahead. The narration of how Deep is being interned in Hong Kong, and his mother's pain, his father's toughness, his friends' annoyance etc. I liked one part where Deep tells about what books has taught him. That whole paragraph is wonderful.
Also, every time his writer's heart and love for books is discussed, Durjoy takes the words and sentences to the next level. As soon as Ahana comes in to the picture, story takes a sweet and a soft turn.
It's not about the pity and sympathy and the support that Deep shows towards her because of her eyes-disorder but about the feelings that both of them share.
Also Durjoy has described a blind girl's feelings and thoughts very well. A part of the book is written with blind girl as first person. Overall end is quite flat. The book is a sm This one is totally different from other books of Durjoy. The book is a small one, there are lot of blank pages and details of other books in the end.
Feb 09, Manthan Ramani rated it really liked it.
It was gigantic. A book with good flow and found too short after completion. It is one of my pick which barely take time to get off the story. Nicely narrated and beautifully craved.
It was sweet at some place as if sweet like honey.

Light read with the pleasurable phrase. A story isn't that much amazing by Durjoy Datta which I face in till the last breath. But not disappointed too. Good to go with a light start. Jun 22, Rishita rated it liked it.
This book melted my heart and made it mushy and squishy! Hope I find my Deep someday. Sep 13, Tarun Dua rated it really liked it.
Aug 29, Aruna Kumar Gadepalli rated it liked it Shelves: Good and quick read. Oct 03, Pravalli Modugula rated it it was ok Shelves: Mar 26, Hemant Singh rated it it was amazing. I am full fida. The writer has great sentence-formation chops.
However, things end there. He began with a bang. The first pages convinced me that I was reading the next Salman Rushdie. Before said Salman takes offense, let me clarify. The writer lost interest. So much so, he gave a silly title to the work. It is so apparent. No plot. No character development.
He even turned a Punjabi kudi into a Bengali shrew. There are half a dozens missed opportunities. There is this guy, a neat freak and a fitness fanatic. He is mentioned talking to a club bouncer. Fits the gay trope fine. And the novel would have flown. But na.
Then he has an Afghan character. So what does he do? Conveniently, kills her off. Every character, including the villain, is socially-appropriate. Like over-sweet rosagullas. What was he hoping for? That they will prescribe it for class 7 students. He has straight-jacketed boy-girl and then father-daughter conversation. But, in damn good English. The worst is our hero. Neither a joker nor an intellectual and definitely not a hero.
Visualise a tall Johnny Lever mouthing inane hyfy stuff. This novel fell into my lap. When a woman flung things at me.
So I read it. I couldn't throw it back at her coz, one, her husband is a bodybuilder and, two, the writer has exceptionally good command over English. Something I love and don't get enough of.
The book commits another crime. Of giving disabled peeps blind hope. Nonetheless, the Hong Kong government will be very pleased with the book coz he describes the whole city. The road, the shopping places, the eating joints, metro, boats, cable car, temples. You know. And, frankly, hits the bulls-eye, unlike any other travel blog.
Boring, but spot-on.
The only offense that they may take is when the book, reaching a sort-of literary absurdity apex, show an injured blind girl lying on its street, bleeding, and its citizen continue their existence without batting an eyelid, and the poor thing has to wait for the said hero to arrive a half hour later.
I hope and pray the writer seeks me out so that we can collaborate on a book. I provide the story, he the finishing and the baby-face to sell our book.

A very simple love story between a guy who love books and spends most of the time reading and a blind girl.

The girl was the first to talk to him in the lift and eventually he come to know that she is blind and uses her amazing smelling sense to record everything in her mind about almost everything. They went together to various tourist places in Hong Kong holding each other hands and literally falls for each other. But neither of them can express this to each other before the guy came back to India. He started missing her and blames himself that he couldn't even able to tell her that he is going back.
Then one random day, the girl came all the way to India with her eyes taken care of I mean she can see now because of some therapy.
Of course the guy was shocked to see her and shocked to know that she can see now. They expresses their love for each other and kissed. So, a happy ending.
Hold my Hand was my first young adult, romance novel. It aslo happened to be my first Durjoy Datta novel, and boy was it great. It is a story of a awkward young man named Deep. Who is sent on an internship programme to the marvellous city of Hong Kong. It is when he is at his hotel that he meets the stunningly gorgeous-Ahana.
Just as they began talking, Deep realised something Ahana is blind!

What I liked most about this book is the way Durjoy Datta has portrayed the daily struggles of a blind girl, an antisocial boy and their struggle to find true love. Although this is a well written story, there are some things in the plot that I feel don't make sense.
But all things said it is a great young adult fiction novel, and Durhoy Datta is nothing but an exceptional writer. Definelty recommend this book for contemporary Indian literature.

Five Stars Genre- Romance. Sep 03, Gauravi rated it liked it. I expected much more from this book than it gave me. Although I really enjoyed how it was all described because keeping things from a perspective in which you are not is a difficult task. Durjoy has always been my favourite and I wouldn't say no to his books. Didn't like it at all. The first half was endurable but the second half was utterly boring. Jul 16, Ramesh Manickavel rated it liked it.

His falling in love with her, her father being strict, her attachment with her ex-boyfriend who's also blind like her etc is what this part of story needed. Actually, this part is less of her struggle with blindness but a relationship between a father and daughter. I liked the character of Ranbeer because this is how even i wish to be with my children.
An ideal character it is! Sadhika's character is also portrayed beautifully. It's good that Durjoy wrote a part in Ahana's words that we get to know what this blind girl keeps thinking within herself who does not remember anything that she was before the age of 5 when her eyes were fine.
Coming to the climax, Durjoy tried to make it surprising but it ended up being flat. I wanted it to look much better. In all, I didn't find much of the mistake in the book but I feel it quite disappointed to speak that this book is average in terms of the kind of author has written it, the publisher that has published it and the kind of reader-base this duo already has.
Someone like You was so much better than this.Ivana Hruba. Jan Smolders. He makes you evolved with each character so much that you probably start missing them after you keep this book down.
Its a nice weekend read but there was something about it that it couldn't be the best. Once he completes his itinery to HongKong he meets Ahana a blind girl residing in an adjacent room o Hold My Hand-A love story by Durjoy Datta which unevils slowly as the book progresses. Write your review. The major set back was missing a love story, the importance of Aveek, their love, Ahana's and Deep's love, the back blurb promised a lot, but the story didn't deliver so much, Aveek role which seeme dto be most important after half of book, turned to be over by then, he was kind of guest appearance ONLY Nicola Monaghan.
The title should be at least 4 characters long.
