    Undoubtedly Novo's best book, and I had said the same about 'Marry Me, Stranger', and this itself shows how much I have loved this book. Racy! Crude! Full of vivid descriptions! Nail-Biting Thriller, and by the end of it, the reader can't do anything but crave for the final installment of this Stranger series. Novoneel is undoubtedly one of the best writers (and maybe underrated too) we have in India (for this genre). Being a fellow writer, I always look forward to his (and only his) books.

    " Romantic Thriller at it's best " Whoa Whoa ! I'm trying my level best to keep calm while writing this review, But I really can't Control my Excitement. Novo belongs to a "Different" level. I have read books by so many Indian Authors but none failed to entertain me like how Novo did :D Often, In a trilogy, When the first Book becomes a hit and as soon as the 2nd Book releases, People generally have great expectations from that. They want the 2nd book to be even more better than the previou " Romantic Thriller at it's best " Whoa Whoa !

They want the 2nd book to be even more better than the previous one. And let me tell you this honestly, "This book isn't a let down ". I can assure you that :) The Trump card in the first book was the Stranger . Before reading the Second book, I was a bit skeptical and I thought the author would Mis-use the Trump Card and eventually spoil the element of surprise. But I'm very gad that nothing of such thing happened. The Author wisely used the " Surprise Element" at the correct places and at the correct time. He made sure he din't sound repetitive. I Should really appreciate that. Like many other reviewers, I really do not wish to brief you up the story . It's useless doing such stuff. I'm writing this review to imply the fact that this book certainly worth reading. I pre-Ordered this book as soon as I finished the first one. Trust me, It's worth every penny. During the Age where we come across thousands of trash books by Indians, Novo's Books are literally like Treasure. Novo Redefines the Rom-Thriller Genre :D Maybe I find his books too good as I haven't read much books of this genre. What are you waiting For?? Stop reading the reviews and Get your copy soon :D Please BUY the Book and Support the author. It's not easy to present a book of this standard. It's worth every penny. Shush !! Read no more. Buy it ASAP

    Well..things just got murkier.. Basically the experience of reading this book is very similar to that of reading the first book..there's still little to no plot,Rivanah is as dumb as ever..but the stranger is as interesting as he was in the first book..I personally think the author doesn't want us readers to like Rivanah.. Otherwise ,why would he create a character with completely no redeeming quality? (pardon me, but i don't consider it to be a redeeming quality if you are literally blackmailed Well..things just got murkier..

(pardon me, but i don't consider it to be a redeeming quality if you are literally blackmailed into doing some good work) ..call me backdated but somehow i don't like this author's idea of romance. Romance should not always be physical but it has to have a level of emotional attachments too..I terribly miss the emotional part here . And as far as the physical love goes..i could have gone without it..it felt like fillers and that too not very well done.The thrilling elements and the stranger in particular are the reasons which is keeping me from skipping it.So, let's just say while i won't be waiting for the final instalment of this book with bated breath, i will definitely wait for it ..albeit with a confused expression.. 3 stars.

Thankfully I had the next one too with me so continued with the novel and the reviis going to be for both :All yours, Stranger and Forget me not, Stranger. The basic plot is clear if you read the blurb. The character Rivanah Bannerjee is both annoying and dumb. Personal opinion. The only exciting thing about this novel was Stranger. I kept on reading only to know where this is going. I didn't need the final novel to know what was wrong with Rivanah , pretty much easyto guess that. But I was sure even if I guessed the stranger, it wouldchange in the end albeit the grand twist and all! What irritated me was the whole romance or rather the lack of it.All the sex scenes were graphic and didn'thave a hint of romance. Rivanah has a crush on every guy she meets and she falls for them at the drop of the hat. The stranger kept saying he was trying to change her for better( lots of philosophical dialogues but the same thing and- who really talks like that all the time ) but for me she went ahead and became more annoying. The last installment had me waiting and waiting but now it seems much of what was expected to be revealed all the ways Stranger used to spy on her and everything would be simply classified into a single (not telling you- you got to read and suffer yourself-insert evil laugh). The ending was annoying.Its a fast read. The quest of finding the Stranger makes you go through all of it. I would read this author's work again because he's going to get better. Good read.

The romance part is ofcourse Sexual , however some part of the story are a bit dark and graphic so I would not recommend this to a younger reader. The writer includes events that a teen had to face emotionally in an extremely new city & present 'em absolutely to pull the story & make it believable. Begining with Front Cover , to which I'll gave 5/5 as it depicts the scene of a Jungle in background and above it , is embedded the Name of Author on Top , Beneath it Lies the Name of Book in bold letters and last slot of Cover holds the picture of a girl turned back with her hairs dashing in air . Now the Back Cover is too holds the same background as that of front cover , over which embedded is the Epitome of the Book . Coming to Writing Section which is truly hooking till the very last page . As the piece is the 2nd Instalment of the Stranger Series , so it picks up from the threads of Ist Part . Plot hatched with our Protagonist Ravinah travelling to Kolkata , her hometown to excavate information about Hiya Chowdary , whose face was doesn't even remember by her. But reaching home , she found the only evidence placed in her home that can link her to Hiya had been misplaced or intenionally stolen . With nothing concrete , she returned back to Mumbai to her Boyfriend's Place where she get to know Nitya , her Boy friend's best friend , had been living in their flat . Nitya tried to kill herself and as on doctor's advice not to leave her alone , Rivanah found her landed at her place . Our Mysterious Stranger is still active and as always kept an eye on her without making his presence felt . Stranger is proved as a friend as well as a foe for her through out the story . But with my point , Stranger seems to be someone who wants to put Rivanah on the path of Righteous . On pushing Rivanah on the quest to of ' Hiya Chawdry' mystery , Stranger tried to make her feel her true worth . Author had put number of twist in the story which makes it a cliffhanger and makes the journey of reader more like driving in the hills on cutting edge roads . And Like earlier segment , this book holds some realy-really-really-honest WISE WORDS , actally PRACTICAL WISE WORDS & like earlier book , this piece make me note many points in my notes sections . So Ofcourse a MUST READ Groundbreaking instalment of Stranger Series .

    While I was reading the book, it felt as if I was watching Ekta Kapoor's serial.. However, the plot seemed interesting. It succeeded to keep me held. But, the turn of events made one confuse about the relationships and their shackles. Overall, this book was way better than the first one. Nice read...

    The stranger's trail has gone dry. Rivanah is feeling settled in her life with Danny. Though there are still hiccups.

Will her relationship with Danny move on to the next level? Will Rivanah finally be able to embrace peace? Let the story unfold. Once a mystery always a mystery. The book goes back to the roots of Rivanah and her college time and yet there is a sense of incompletion. The more she delves to join the dots, the more she winds up getting frustrated. The tricks continue, the mind wavered and the determination waning. The inner curiosity far from quenched and people around her more double barreled this time. She has life to lead, she has mess to sort out, she has insecurities and she has a mystery to resolve. She is a lover, a conqueror, a troubled soul and in the end a human who has to deal with unknown forces. The story brings out the best out of Rivanah. Pushing her towards the zealous factors of life. Exploring the inner recesses of her tender soul. It's a haunting experience and continues to be so. No drawbacks till now. All in all the dots remain far from joined as readers await with bated breath the final piece of the puzzle. More is in store as the mystery and misery deepens each moment now. Rivanah has gained and lost a lot yet she finds herself struggling for peace. There is a way out of it but how and when no one knows. Not even the readers. The guessing game continues and the stranger's sanctity alive. Who will win it one last time? Let it unfold in the final part. For now it keeps getting better and better.

    Let me start by saying I liked the creepy factor this book had. I was creeped out the whole time and the end was really good. I was not at all at any point interested in the love life of the protagonist Rivannah, but only the stranger angle made me read this story. This story is extremely weird filled with unrealistic situations. The stranger is made out to be some godlike person who is always at the right place on the right time.

This story is extremely weird filled with unrealistic situations. The stranger is made out to be some godlike person who is always at the right place on the right time. The protagonist is an extremely foolish, immature, selfish woman who frankly invites all the trouble and then cries over it. I could not feel sorry for her once looking at the way she thinks and takes decisions. Also, it felt like there were not at all needed sex scenes which felt out of place and too abrupt in the storyline. The basic plot line is extremely slow with Rivannah pondering over (for the umpteenth time) who is really Hiya(a mystery person in this story). I read more than half the book and still I had the same questions as in the beginning. I felt like I was reading some teenager's woes over how bad her love life was. Surprisingly she indulges all her private details with this 'stranger' knowing fully well how he might use it against her. What god awful stupidity?! Alas, the creepiness provided by the stranger is the only thing that works for this book. Will definitely read the next one.

    More intriguing than the first part. Even though in the beginning, I wondered where this book is heading, but then it begins. The twists, the crisp words of the 'Stranger' and the excitement to find out who is the Stranger. Waiting to grab the final part of this trilogy as soon as it becomes available!! Can't wait to find out who the stranger is...is the stranger really a stranger or already been introduced in either first or the second part or something else !! gotta wait !!

This book has more twists and turns that bring us one step closer to the stranger. The readers are totally glued to this book as every incident is inter related. It focus on relationships, about a person named Hiya Chaudhary and her existence. The cover and the title is again intriguing just like the previous one. We notice a girl who is in the middle of the jungle. Probably the cover justifies Rivannah's dream or rather say hallucination where she feel the presence of the stranger. The title is perfect as the protagonist can feel herself close to the stanger. The subtitle is really catchy. Blurb- All Yours, Stranger’ is the 2nd part of the Stranger trilogy series, by Novoneel Chakraborty. The plot spins around Rivanah Bannerjee, who is from Kolkata, trying to get a grip on the typical Mumbai life. She has a wonderful boyfriend, yet is obsessed with thinking about her ex-boyfriend. Although he cheated on her, she is ready to overlook that fact. The Stranger is nowhere to be found ever since the police started to hunt for him, though it has been an unsuccessful attempt. The questions that Rivanah wants an answer for, in this mystery allegory are; Who really is this stranger? What is his purpose of coming into Rivanah’s life? Will he ever be able to contact her again? These types of questions have been troubling Rivanah continuously. Indifferent about the mystery surrounding this guy, she frantically wants the stranger back into her life. As the story further unfolds, the true facts that come to light are far from what Rivanah could ever imagine. The story has a vicious and cruel plot with many mysteries unfolding themselves, as the reader divulges further into this tale. This gripping plot has the knack to make the reader bite his or her nails till the very last leaf of the book. The plot is more dark and complex as compared to the previous part. The previous book left the clue of Hiya Chaudhary and here, Rivannah tries to uncover the mystery behind Hiya Chaudhary who happened to be her batchmate and had hung herself to death. It was believed that she also got such messages. So, a fear of being murdered by the stranger arises in the mind of Rivannah. To add more she struggling with her heart and mind. She is unable to forget her ex boyfriend, Ekansh who cheated on her and her present boyfriend, Danny. She loves them both but life takes a turn when Ekansh again makes an appearance in her life and this time as her rommie's fiance. The story moves between Kolkata and Mumbai as Rivannah keeps on coming back to Kolkata to know more about her past, Hiya Choudhary. She tries really hard to find the clues. She even quits her job when the Stranger ask her to do so. She doubts on Hiya's brother but later she comes to know that he was not even part of it. He was just being used. The characters seems more developed in this book. Rivannah is struggling and the stranger helps her find out whom she loves but that still remains uncovered till we reach the next book. Further, Danny and Ekansh's roles keep on shifting in her life. This book has many characters along with the previous ones and together they make an amazing tuning. The style of writing is simple, clear and lucid. Some of the sentences are just so beautiful that you end up noting down in your diary. The descriptions are fantastic and they just make you more glued to the book. Novoneel has a unique style of writing as he ends up playing with the minds of the readers through his play of words. Once can picturise the whole book while reading it and its an easy read.

A girl in the middle of the jungle justifies Rivannah's dream or rather say hallucination where she feel the presence of the stranger. “Life kills you more acutely than death.” “Some people will burn your world into ashes and yet the smoke from the singe would still be in love with them,” This book has Mind-blowing... Nail biting... Brilliant… Keeps you captive The books hit the road running, almost at the same pace of Book 1. The cover and the title is again intriguing just like the previous one. A girl in the middle of the jungle justifies Rivannah's dream or rather say hallucination where she feel the presence of the stranger. “Life kills you more acutely than death.” “Some people will burn your world into ashes and yet the smoke from the singe would still be in love with them,” This book has more twists and turns that bring us one step closer to the stranger. The whole game changed when the Stranger decided to up his game and Rivanah decided to dig deeper. The readers are totally glued to this book as every incident is inter related. “We all have this special talent for hiding a truth by adding layers of lies on to it.” Rivanah founds herself strangely addicted to the stranger. Explores some noir aspects of her own personality and stuck in a situation where she has to choose between her first love and her true love. Meanwhile, the mystery of Hiya Chowdhary’s identity deepens. “Fear is the most prized illusion we create for ourselves, dear. Never be afraid of such louts. They feed on our fear,” The book is a journey on unknown path. A path with an unpredictable outcome. With Rivanah at helm, numerous outcomes are possible but to get it right, it has to be a waiting game. There are lines of worries, palpable tension in the story, surmounting drama and a crusader hidden behind Rivanah's past, present and future. “People think cheating is an action like sleeping with someone, kissing someone or whatever. Wrong. Very wrong. Cheating is when you feel the pressure of being faithful to someone because of someone else. When you suddenly realize there’s an option. That realization is cheating.” “A break-up doesn't necessarily end the love two people have for each other. In fact some love stories never end. They only end something within the people involved.” Author has constructed each chapter with an ending which would never let you plug a bookmark for a break. The mind dwelling quotes will make you ponder on your own life decisions. You can learn so many lessons of life from the stranger. The book holds some really honest Wise words. You'll end up craving for the last installment!!! 4/5 Stars

    Huh! I did not quite like the first book but I did not hate it either. I just felt it did have the potential of a great plot if not marred by such stupid flat one directional characters.The thrill and the suspense quotient was fine which is why I decided to read the second book. But after reading this one, I nothing I have been mistaken.

But after reading this one, I nothing I have been mistaken. What I thoughts were the signs of a good thriller suspense has shown its true colors in this book in the form of stretched, forced and dragged story coupled with over the top melodramatic moments. I mean the events and the story just seem to be made up their sole purpose being to stretch the narrative. Also the main character is the worst female character I have ever read about! I would punch her in the face if I ever could! She is absolutely nothing but an attention hungry, obnoxious bitch! She judges around everyone but does not think twice before panting like a bitch every time she comes across a hot guy. That moment, she forgets her problems and the only that stands in front of her is how to get that hot guy's attention! Honestly, she is such a hate able character that I no longer care what happens to her! In fact I think she deserved to be cheated on by her bf! She totally deserved it!! I am still finding myself at a cross roads as to whether I should pick up the third book. I mean the main character has lost my respect(whatever little I had for her initially) and the story has lost its lustre. I may still at the end of the day, pick up the third book just to see what conclusion the author could possibly fit into such a deliberate story. But one thing I am damn sure of, that if I do read the book, it will be the last I will read by this author.

    This is the review for the second book All Yours, Stranger in the Stranger Trilogy. Before you read this I recommend you read my review for the first book Marry Me, Stranger. It will help you get a good perspective where both the books stand. The review of the first book in the trilogy -https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

Before you read this I recommend you read my review for the first book Marry Me, Stranger. It will help you get a good perspective where both the books stand. The review of the first book in the trilogy -https://www.goodreads.com/review/show... For whatever explicit words I used for part one, I would still use the same for part two (read the part one review and you will know) but one thing that All Yours, Stranger did that Marry Me, Stranger couldn't was placement of the suspense . The whole game changed when the Stranger decided to up his game and Rivanah decided to dig deeper. My favourite part of the book was when Stranger tells Rivanah about love and cheating, our perception and our emotions, how they entangle in a mess every time you try to make it right. I do not want to embed quotes from the book here because that would mean a spoiler alert So let us dissect the book in parts - Narration Slightly better than book one; simple and easy-to-understand language. Grammatical errors are less in this book, a few printing errors prevalent. Character Analogy Again, I give Rivanah shit for replying to unknown people's messages but in this book she is in too deep with the stranger that she cannot do anything about it. ( Irony: She started it first ) One thing I liked about this book is that it shows the relationship between Rivanah-Ekansh and Rivanah-Danny. The dynamics of the relationships change throughout the book and this is what the Stranger feeds on. Plot THE EXACT REASON WHY THIS BOOK IS MY FAVOURITE IN THE SERIES. I completed book two in 24 hours; the plot is fast paced and will keep you glued. Worth a read. Kudos to the writer here. In Conclusion My favourite in many lists ranging from thriller to best books by Indian authors. Narration is shit, but the plot will take you places.

Rivanah continues to find clues and information regarding regarding Hiya Chowdhury which will take her to the stranger. There is no sign of the stranger for sometime but he soon reappears. She is happy with her boyfriend Danny but a sudden comeback of her ex Ekansh and their love making confuses her whom she really wants? And what if Danny comes to know that she has cheated her? At the end Rivanah comes to know that Hiya too had got the same white paper chits with messages from the stranger on them which she had started getting from the time she has stepped in Mumbai. And on the other hand Rivanah ends up making a sketch of Hiya whose face Rivanah says she doesn't remember. The latter is continued in book 3 of stranger triology. The language of the book is simple and can be easily understood. It is filled with twists and turns and keeps you attached to it until the end. A great page turner and suspenseful all the way. Surely this triology gets better with each book.

But it's ending disappointed me. I had expected more from this book. In this book, the main character Rivanah played a great role and her two boyfriends Ekansh and Danny. But the interesting point was she loved both of them. And she didn't want to leave anyone. The other main character was Hiya Choudhary.

But the interesting point was she loved both of them. And she didn't want to leave anyone. The other main character was Hiya Choudhary. She hanged herself from rope and died. The whole story was connected to Hiya. This series made me glued till the very end of it. Other than the climax, I liked the triology of the stranger series. Btw, this book was the quickest for me to end. I read the trilogy in just 6 days which is quite an achievement for me. In this time of pandemic, reading is helping me a lot to pass the time. I wish that I soon find another such series.
