Ishita Singh, a student of St. Pierce’s College, Mumbai was living a pretty normal life with her group of friends, a caring senior and scarily enough, a creep who followed her. Shweta wakes up in the unknown planet of Isthenope and sets out with Alexander Ishutin, a former spy of the RSV, to discover more about the unknown planet which was built for a future civilization. Underlying the lives of the two in completely different worlds, there lies a dark secret which was partially blacked out in some corner of Shweta’s memory and unknown to Ishita. Will they ever come to know about the secret or will it be so chilling that it won’t be worth living for?

My Views:
One of the decent fantasy stories that I have read in the recent times. Isthenope, a fantasy place away from earth where our protagonist wakes up on an unpleasant day which opens up the curtains for the book. Author has taken the readers to a different world all together through out the plot, further he adds a good crime sequence and a team that breaks the mystery and finally adds up the syria sequences. The author has tactfully brought up the multiple story lines that ends up with a perfect closure

Author has been brilliant in narrating the entire plot in an imaginative way to make it a perfect page turner. Also the mystery and investigative scenes are nicely worked out which adds fuel to the actual story line. Perfect narration, decent vocabulary, gripping story-line and awesome characterizations are some of the positive features to talk about this novel.

Few areas like Syria(Alexander insights) seems to be dragging which could have been minimized. Unexpected climax makes the reader spellbound. Must recommended for fantasy/unusual fiction lovers. Book cover picture is not catchy, author could have chosen a better one rather

Over all I rate “NOT WORTH LIVING FOR – SHREYAN LAHA” a 4/5, I am sure the book takes you to the different world all together and also makes this a perfect page turner carrying an ideal suspense tale till the end.
