Story in a nutshell -
Every person born on this earth is born with some talent. The only difficult thing is that you need to identify that talent and take a leap towards it. Raj, the protagonist, is also born with one such talent. He is blessed with running skills. He doesn’t recognize his skill. He has turned into a lazy person.. a person whose life revolves around his work and his wife. His wife considers him to be an absolute loser. He is someone who desperately wants to seek attention and love from his wife.
She leaves him one fine day annoyed with his behavior and lifestyle. He goes out in her search and finally, finds his calling. What does he find? Who is Aaliya and how does she help him?
'Jeet Lo Marathon’, as the name suggests, is an inspiring novel. The moment I started reading this book, I was reminded of the movie – Bhag Milkha Bhag. The cherry on the cake was that the book is being made into a movie. My interest for this book increased manifold.
The story is a simple and engaging one. The author has crafted the plot well. However, I wasn’t very happy about the book initially. I found the incidents like that of a Bollywood movie… in few words..cheesy. But as I proceeded, I discovered that I had a wrong notion about the book. The story indeed was fresh and kept me hooked until the last page.
The main characters – Raj, Manasi and Aaliya are developed well. I loved the transformation of Raj from a timid, aimless fellow to a guy having a goal in life. Aaliya’s giving nature makes you love her. The story has been narrated in third person narrative. The language is simple. The narration has been done well.
Why should you read this book?
- It tells you how having a goal in your life changes your life for good.
- It’s inspiring. It tells you how being focused on your goal will help you overcome any obstacles.
- It tells you that love is all about giving.
- Lastly, it tells you that a HERO resides in every individual.
Overall, I rate ‘Jeet Lo Marathon’ with 4/5 stars.
