Blurb
Love is understanding, mutual confidence, sharing, and forgiving. Love is invisible. It is a true feeling; it cannot be seen or measured. Sometimes, the voice of the heart is much stronger than all the other sounds and words spoken without feelings.

Love leads a person to the path of truth but sometimes, the truth spoken for love can lead us and the life of our love to the never-ending separation and the conclusion is only destruction.

Welcome to ‘Out of the Blue’, an adventurous story of a young lieutenant, Sebastian, who struggles through many hardships for his tormented old father and his lover, Carole. Furthermore, plans, suspense, lust, and jealousy provide a divergence from the loving atmosphere of Paris.



My Review 
 


I was wondering if I should write the review keeping in mind the age of the author or should I give a generalized review. Well, the book reminded me of classic adventure stories like Gulliver’s Travel.  As a kid, I used to grab tiny book versions of the adventure stories wherein the storyline would be given without much literary embellishments. Out of the blue is one like that. The story is interesting and engaging with lot of surprising twists and turns. I kept on wondering how a fifteen year old boy, could imagine such an intense story. The language of the author is good. His vast reading is evident in the book. The title and book cover is completely in sink with the story.

Again experience and age matters. The lack of embellishments that I mentioned earlier would be because of his lack of experience in life. Lack of Character build up is one of the major flaws. I cannot be judgmental or biased as a reviewer. But I am forced to say that Ekamdeep has done an exemplary job for his age. But to come into the world of literature a little more experience and hard work is needed.
