Book Review: The Rule Breakers by Preeti Shenoy


There are two kinds of people in this world—those who follow the rules and those who do not think twice about breaking them.

Preeti Shenoy launches yet another riveting novel on the fragility of human emotions toiling hard to keep up the rules set by the society. Set in the misty mountains and an intriguing city of Pune, The Rules Breakers is a story of deciding on which side of fence are you? Either a Rule Follower or a Rule Breaker. The protagonist, Veda is a simple girl with dreams in her eyes living in a decrepit town near the foothills of Himalayas. Life brings her to Pune and how she fights inner battles to find the rules that define her- is beautifully captured by the words of Preeti Shenoy. Weaving beautiful plots in her narrative, Shenoy underlines the beauty of will and love. Sibling love, friendships, long distance relationships and harshness of broken dreams is found in the story.

The beauty of the story is that it makes you stop and think. Even though the narrative is easy to read, it stimulates your inner emotions – the lasting fight of the heart and brain for making a tough decision for your life.

Like Shenoy’s previous novels, you will find strong women who know their opinion and also voice it well. Something that we all can learn. Here you find the age-old patriarchy, typical nuances of the society are finely fabricated in the story. Though set in the late 90’s, many of us will connect to the day-to-day struggles of the protagonist. 

Wonderfully crafted narrative and characters that stay with you for a little more time after you have finished reading it. Ideal read to understand excellent storytelling capabilities.

Launch Date: 17th Sep 2018
