So how fate gets them together and what part of their lives entwine to make them one and let them be in their own zone?

    2. This is my first Nikita Singh novel and a reader’s comment that she has written something out of her comfort zone made me pick up her book. Though I started reading ‘After All This Time’ with a sense of foreboding, fortunately for me, it was a much pleasant experience and I finished reading it in a couple of days.The story starts with Lavanya Suryavanshi (I love the last name) who discovers that she is HIV positive and in a bid to really live her last remaining days, she quits her stressfu [...]

    4. Well I got to agree with the fellow reviewers of this book. Nikita Singh's writing has evolved over the time. From the start of the book till the very end, the writing was near flawless that it literally had me in a trance. When i compare this with her previous books, her writing seemed mature. I finished it at one go.*Cheers to me*Most of Nikita's books are woman-centric and so there is quite a good depth in the main character.(Here,'Lavanya').Her emotions were vividly expressed.The story was f [...]

    5. Read Full Review HereI thoroughly loved the book and I feel this is Nikita Singh at her finest (so far). It connects with you right at the beginning and then never leaves you. The characters connect with you emotionally and makes you feel for them. The twists and turn are natural and the climax is perfect. "The goddess of racy reads," says The Hindu and I can't agree more because you would not want to put it down before you finish it.

    6. Boy, was it a waste of time. Normally, while reading a book, I can't even keep my cool. I keep cackling, whispering under my breath, fangirling or crying all over the freaking pages, but this time I didn't even smile once. I'm too numb to be disappointed or feel anything. I've read it in one-sitting but only because I wanted it to end so badly, God. I'm not a one-star person, but the epilogue was like the cherry on top. Take this away from me, please.

    7. It's completely a three-star story for me. But the additional star I've given it is just because it was a work out of the comfort-zone of the author.What I'm writing here now is my point of viewI THINK THAT SUCH TYPE OF PLOTTING DIDN'T NEED 222 PAGES TO BE PENNED DOWN ANYWAY!After all a good read, especially when you're stuck in that terrible traffic at NARMADA BRIDGE! ;)

    8. Ya did tell about people's feelingsbut didn't like the Part were they boot got married as they were childhood friend And shourya mentioned laavi as sis.worst book by Nikitha offence!!

    9. The Shourya's reaction is what made me hooked to this book and I finished it in 2 days. I liked the uncertainty and apprehension which stirred in my mind while reading this book.The plot of the book is good, it heightened my expectations in the beginning, but then it disappointed me. It became way too filmy at some points. The book fails to leave any kind of emotional impact which I was expecting. Overall, this book dampened my interest in it.

    10. A clean and exhilarating tale of two friends who met after a long time and have fun at each other’s company without letting each other know what actually have they gone through. Although things aren’t always meant to be the same.

    11. Ufff. It took very long time to complete even though it is very small story. I did not think i would spend this much time for the nikita sigh’s “After all this time” . It is okay type story. Not moving. It has its own realities in the story. It seems Nikita dug somuch information about HIV patients and disease. Well not into all that, we go to summary of the story,i am writing this only to my self and for my happiness to not forget the entire stucture of the story. Nikitas says in one of [...]

    12.

    13. Language used is pretty good. The story is different at certain places, otherwise the book is covered with cliched love story scenes. One thing I liked most is the scenes depicted look quite real, the author is expressive and clear. Quite better than most of the other Indian authors writing romantic young age love stories.

    14. Nikita singh has greatly evolved in her writing. When I was reading the initial Chapters I wondered whether am I reading Sophie kinsella's works or Nikita's?! The story starts back at NewYork with Lavanya putting a dedicated effort to impress her boss at PSM. meanwhile Shourya feels shattered since his girlfriend moved on with his best friend. With the whole fucked up dispute between Lavanya and her boss already. Lavanya accidentally finds out that she is a HIV victim. She feels highly depressed [...]

    16. This was the first book from the author i was reading. Ive heard of her and also watched her Ted talks, but reading her was the first time experience and i will tell only a single statement 'how i missed out such an exceptional storyteller'. According to me, if a person is not a good writer, but a good storyteller, its enough and yes she was just like that. As a writer, it was ok but as a storyteller she is exceptional. The story was completely out of box and different from the stories that goes [...]

    17. 'After All This Time' by Nikita Singh. A book with simple story line, easy to understand and written in a simple language. The story is quite predictable. It is more a family drama than a love story. The story can't keep riveted to the book.Before starting this book, I thought it would be a typical Indian love story but it was not as expected.The whole plot revolves basically around two characters, LAVANYA and SHOURYA. This is the love story of them. About their relationships when they were kids [...]

    18. Lavanya has spent her entire life chasing after her goals. She works at a Law firm in NY and has a busy life until an HIV positive ticket from her doctor crushes her dreams.

Lavanya and Shaurya decide to come back to India, to their roots, and are fortunate enough to find each other.

    19. Light read. Simple high school best friends fall in love.t have their share of confusion and run away from it. Struggling thousand miles away from home with depressions and drug addiction after 7 long years , realization dawns upon her, lavanya returns back to her best frend shourya. The moments of realization and turmoil of lavanya, not to run away from her problems with anguish, rather to face it with a brave front and accept the tangibility of them portrayed very well. Teenage love and the pa [...]

    20. It is a excellent light reading book. Sitting on a lazy Sunday with this book in your hand is the right thing to do. The author creates a magic that's why I simply love reading it. It took me two sittings for finishing the book. The story part is good and characters are also well created. The author has grabbed my attention and seriously the book is quite interesting.All the books written by this author is awesome. It is a recommended book for all those readers who like fiction stories and those [...]

    21. Nikita Singh, there is no need to say anything about the author. The name itself says a lot. Nikita Singh is one of my personal favorite and I never give a miss to her books. Though this time, I got a bit late in reading her book.Have you ever come across a HIV patient? How would you react if you find someone with HIV positive? Would your behavior towards your best friend will change if you get to know she/he is having HIV??? There are many questions whose answers vary from one person to other.R [...]

    22. So, with that title if you are thinking you'd find a love story very near and dear to that of Severus Snape and Lily, say hello to disappointment. Although you can find a one paragraph reference to it. YAY!After writing interesting page turner books like, The Promise, If its not forever's not love and Someone like you, Nikita Singh brings you a successful drag story of a confused soul suffering from HIVRead more herethatmessedupindiansoulspo

    23. 'How long will I live?' that is the question ringing in Lavanya's mind since the minute she found out she's a HIV Positive. My first Nikita Singh novel left me spell bounded with the initial start itself. Basing on a very sensitive topic, I adored her writing on how the character dealt with her life turned upside down. It's a different book no one dares to write yet written beautifully with the elements of true friendship,commitment for love. This is not going to be my last novel of her work.

    24. I wanted to read a simple , not too heavy with information kind of book just to while away time. This is exactly that. Just like many other books by the upcoming indian authors, the book did not seem strong enough to stir any emotions or it might be just because i could not connect with the protagonist. On the whole, not a great book that you would remember for years to come. I couldn't even recall the name of the book!!

    25. The story is of a girl Lavanya who has a high profile job in the States. Her boss troubles her and colleagues avoid her. But life is going to get different when accidentally her past demons will present themselves in the present in the form of HIV. So how does she plan to handle it all? Will she return home and confide to her parents? That’s what the story is of Nikita Singh’s After all this time.

    26. Mikita singh has mastered the art of covering emotions through words and she is the Hermoine of Indian writing. The book has wonderfully displayed the emotions of Lavi and Shourya. Thanks Nikita for the wonderful book. Loads of love from my side and also from the people on whose behalf I am writing this review.

    27. Everything about this book is just perfect. this story gets u hooked up right away from the first word. Lavanya was portrayed beautifully (so were the other characters). The incidents between deepti and shourya were natural and fluent. The simple yet attractive plot, happiness and sorrow, hatred and love that happens for a normal human has been narrated in crisp and neat way.
