Book Review: The Clockmaker by Paromita Goswami

Greetings People !
I have read a Paranormal book after ages. Wow, it actually made me sit up and wait to see what happened next. The Clockmaker by Paromita Goswami is Book 1 of The Jungle series. If Book 1 was so interesting as well as spine tingling, I am more than eager to read the next books in the series.

Know about Book 1 at: Spotlight: The Clockmaker (Jungle Series Book1) by Paromita Goswami

Ashish Gupta is a clockmaker with a long lineage. He has mastered the art from his father. His father learnt it from his father and so on. The family has a good reputation and holds this family profession in the highest regard. The family name and profession is just helping Ashish make ends meet. His wife Lata the only daughter from a wealthy family takes help from her father for her financial needs. Their son Vicky, a speed fanatic is spoilt by his grandparents. Lata has an arch enemy in Rashmi who used to be her best friend and now both try to compete by showing off their wealth. Vicky is least interested in taking up the family profession of Clock making and has a crush on Kavya  his classmate.
Ashish on the other hand is tormented by nightmares. Some days he cant understand what is reality and when he is hallucinating. The black hooded man in his nightmares keeps asking for the time piece his father gave him. Ashish is frustrated completely with his life and destiny.
He discovers the power of the timepiece and when disaster strikes he use the time piece to change the Time.
But can he succeed in changing his destiny? Can anyone Cheat Time?

I was very much intrigued by this premise. Are you? Then buy the book :

What I liked:

The sheer ease with which one is transported from a small shop in East Delhi to the dark chilly forest in Ashish's nightmares.
Loved the time travels from the lavish living Ashish manipulated into his destiny to how destiny makes you a cripple in the literal sense.

The entire story shows how Destiny and Time is already planned out for each of us. We are mere puppets. Also Karma comes back every time. No excuses.

This story has many facets and I loved how Author Paromita has delved into each of them.

There are stories and incidents within one another. I loved how each layer unraveled.
After a point, you stop trying to guess what will happen next coz its totally different.

I was expecting to get nightmares and shiver while reading the book as is the case with Paranormal books I have read earlier. I had planned to rush through it.

This one only made me look forward to read it when I got a few minutes of free time.

It was actually interesting to read this story. Albeit with a spine tingling suspense around like a heavy fog throughout the story.

The characters were perfect in each time space and portrayed real human emotions. Few characters and a tight script. The language was simple and clean. The flow of story consistent.

Some parts were super gory and scary. I liked how the grandfathers and fathers revealed the secret and tried to help Ashish through the nightmares.

I am now thankful for having a good, normal life and ease of getting sleep every night. My heart just went out to all those people who suffer from insomnia and releated mental ailments.

What I wanted more:
When the story ended, I thought I will know the answers but more questions are circling my head now.
The second shadow was a surprise. Also how Vicky met his destiny in both stories was interesting. I shuddered at each time :(

Author Paromita, I am going to have a quizzical expression when I meet you next. :D Too many questions. But super interested to know the next book(s) in the series.

Rituraj realises he’s in love with the Gaekwad princess, Sitara Devi. The timing is slightly wrong though. Just ten minutes ago Sitara Devi married Harishchandra Gajanan. All of seventeen and nursing a badly bruised heart, Rituraj takes up boxing, hoping to build his strength and heal his wounded soul.

When destiny gives them a second chance, hope springs in his heart.

Rituraj grabs the opportunity of becoming Sitara’s bodyguard-cum-assistant. He’s the only man in her life but he’s just her Man Friday. Since his father was merely an employee of Sitara’s father, will he even be considered as a prospective life partner for the Gaekwad princess? 

Sitara, and Rituraj are crazily attracted to each other, yet they are unable to move forward. So where is the hitch? Why the fear in taking the relationship to the next level?

Class Barriers! Debauchery! Sexual Perversion!

It looks like ‘Ne’er the twain shall meet’.

 Author Sundari Venkatraman

Sundari Venkatraman is an indie author who has 43 titles (39 books & 4 collections) to her name, all Top 100 Bestsellers on Amazon India, Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Amazon Canada and Amazon Australia in both romance as well as Asian Drama categories. Her latest hot romances have all been on #1 Bestseller slot in Amazon India for over a month.

Even as a kid, Sundari absolutely loved the ‘lived happily ever after’ syndrome as she grew up reading all the fairy tales she could lay her hands on, Phantom comics, Mandrake comics and the like. It was always about good triumphing over evil and a happy end. 

Soon, into her teens, Sundari switched her attention from fairy tales to Mills & Boon. While she loved reading both of these, she kept visualising what would have happened if there were similar situations happening in India; to a local hero and heroine. Her imagination took flight and she always lived in a rosy cocoon of romance over the years. 

Then came the writing – a true bolt out of the blue! And Sundari Venkatraman has never looked back.
