Till The Last Breath by Durjoy Datta – Book Summary
I, unfortunately, belong to the old generation of book lovers that are seen my many as staunch opponents of the current crop of rom-com bestselling authors that are well-known for their engineering/MBA/love-story-gone-sure/office tales.
While yes, there seems to be just too many engineer-turned-MBA authors for my liking these days and everytime I walk into a bookstore, I see 20 new books by 20 new such authors; the truth is that not all of them are bad if you know how to separate the wheat from the chaff!
One of those little “wheat pieces” seems to be Durjoy Datta; I managed to read his last book, If It’s Not Forever. It’s Not Love, and was pleasantly surprised to find that I really loved the book. And that’s when I begun following the author and found out that the author’s next book, Till the Last Breath by Durjoy Datta, was due for release soon.
This latest novel, Till the Last Breath by Durjoy Datta, seems to slightly divert from the author’s tried and tested successful formula of romantic “youth” based books and explores something much more emotionally draining – fatal illness and death. Of course, there’ll surely be love somewhere in between but mu guess is that Durjoy is keener on exploring the emotional quotient of his characters this time around.
From what I’ve learnt of this book, Till the Last Breath by Durjoy Datta, it seems to be a pretty good book and there’s a strong chance for this one to climb all the bestseller charts as well.
Till The Last Breath by Durjoy Datta – Book Excerpt
Below is a short summary and excerpt of the book:
“On a lazy Sunday morning, two young people are wheeled into Room No. 509 of GKL super specialty hospital.
A brilliant nineteen year old medical student, suffering from an incurable, fatal disease hurtling her at a slow, painful, uncertain death…
A wasteful twenty five year old drug addict, with no appreciation of life, with every organ system of his body slowly shutting down…
Two prodigious doctors, fighting their own demons from the past, try to keep these two patients alive, putting their medical licenses at risk.
Death looms in the tiny 12X13 foot room as they fight for every breath of their lives, even as the doctors put them through unapproved experimental treatments to prolong their lives.
How will the last month of pain and struggle change their lives? How will it transform the doctors who work steadfastly to make them live a little longer? Find out in Till the Last Breath by Durjoy Datta”
