     in a different way 18 March, 2014 On Junglee.com
    I would recommend this to everyone. But,

    beware.. after reading this book you may

    feel a little disconnected with the world or

    maybe you'll just want to think about

    your life in general. This actually made

    me look back at my life and all the things

    I have done.. Being a sensitive person.. it

    really made me wonder and stop.

    Okay, it is worth the read. Please, Do read it. You may or may not like it. But, you surely would be

    more knowledgeable after you read this

    book.

     Its a story of a girl not story of her determined struggle against her mental condition 28 November, 2012 On Junglee.com
    From the title you think its a book that will inspire. however the inspiration part comes quite late in the story. The story at the beginning is full of details which could have been shorter so that the focus could be on 'what you make it part'.
    School goers may like it but if you are a serious reader you would get annoyed as you read it because of tit bit details of romance, drugs in parties which only go on to add some spice to the story. Perhaps the author took inspiration from 'highest selling author' to add spice but the flavor didn't come out good, at least for seasoned readers.

  3.  Highly Disappointing.... 19 April, 2014 On Junglee.com
    I read this book, or more accurately tried to read this book. I was unable to finish this book because the author Preeti Shenoy tests your patience through an average story and horrible writing.

    This book is an example of how poor some of the present Indian writing is, especially with some of these overnight "bestselling" Authors.

    I passed this book to some of my friends and asked them to read. Not just me, even they found this book to be a piece of useless writing.

    Hate to be a bit harsh, but the truth is 'Life is what you make it' is not worth spending even 60 rupees. If you are so bored, please read five point someone once again or watch some movie on your laptop. But don't waste your time and money on this book!

    Giving a rating of 1 as I can't rate it to 0 or negative rating.

  4.  Life is what You Make it wonderful book 25 March, 2014 On Junglee.com
    I was and after reading this book still am looking for a technique How to find one's purpose in Life. That book did not help too much but that is not a critical view that just was my expectation. Maybe in some other book. ;o) As far as the book value I would say that it might help parents as well as their children get the right understanding what they are looking for in Life. To be more specific I would say that this book's message is clear and loud: Do what you Love /passion/is. Not what others expect from you. Sounds simple but in real Life is little bit more complicated. Thanks to Peter Buffett- his book, his music and his public Life the World will be better place for all of us on this small and wonderful Blue Planet Earth. Namaste Peter and all the fellow human beings.

  7.  Motivating... totally worth 25 January, 2014 On Junglee.com
    I've read this book when I was having hard times during my graduation. My sister gave this book to me. The writing style of the book is so lucid that I finished it within a day. This book tells about the hardships in the life of a person and the way to cope with them.
    Truly, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade!

  8.  senior contributer 20 January, 2014 On Junglee.com
    JUNGLEE is one of the imp. site where people can get varieties of good quality materials in reasonable prices. Many things had purchased by me, one of them is a creation of Preeti Shenoy, which is her 1st writing, ie her BIOGRAPHY. It amazed me, as I'm going through it. She described simply about her fighting in life, from so many hurdles, even suffered in pshycic disease, having a very good, intelligent student. I became surprised about her mental strength, strong will power, which helped to ignore all difficulties & to proceed for new sunny sky in her life. Now She lives in Bangalore with her co-operative husband & two beautiful kids. I respect, love her very much. Everyone should read it to learn that, its a man/woman, not any other animals in the World, able to do, what he/she wants. Praying Preety's long life with sound health.

  9.  Realistic Book 31 October, 2013 On Junglee.com
    Life is a combinations of unexpected incidents. Preeti Shenoy has done a terrific job in portraying the characters. I felt too absorbed while I was reading and I highly recommend this book for serious book lovers.

    Happy reading!!

  10.  It's OK - nothing more, nothing less 9 October, 2013 On Junglee.com
    I bought this book on sale, for a ridiculously low price, and I'm honestly glad that I did not pay the full price. I mean the book is not bad, it's actually pretty fast pacing, the language and grammar are good, the story itself is not that bad, but this book is definitely not suitable for "advanced" and more demanding readers.
    This story is about a young, smart and talented girl called Ankita and her experiences with college life. Love, break ups, friends, conservative families, hopes and dreams....well, for the most part, the usual ups and downs of a young Indian girl. The aspect I found interesting about this book was the subject of bipolar disease and its impacts on one's life. I liked the way Preeti Shenoy introduced her readers to this disorder and tried to make them understand what a bipolar person goes through. I also appreciate the fact that the author used simple and contemporary language which has a potential to attract young readers and to promote books reading in general.
