The Boy Who Loved by Durjoy DattaI was so surprised by this book... I mean, if this author writes books like these, what are the haters talking about when they say books like these arent good? They must be idiots for theres nothing in this book that you wouldnt like.
A boy who contemplates suicide, a boy who falls in love, a middle-class boy who lives in the Bengali Hindu family still too consumed with the superiority and purity of their religion, a boy experiences things that push him to the edge... Theres guilt, grief, love, momentary happiness, sorrow and so much more in this boys life who writes his diary as a sort of his last notes before he finally ends his life.
The book is such a good attempt on addressing the hypocrisy of the Indian society and evils underlying those kind and innocent faces. Its full of sarcasm on such hypocrites and its full of painful and unacceptable (yet, very common in the country) things.
Its a story that glues you to it from the beginning and leaves you with a heavy heart and deep-in-thoughts mind.
Dont miss it guys! Let haters talk. You deserve a good book and this book is just that.

What would it be like to see everyone as a friend? It also makes him enormously vulnerable. On the cusp of adolescence, Eli lacks the innate skepticism that will help him navigate coming-of-age more safely—and vastly more successfully. The Boy Who Loved Too Much explores the way a tiny twist in a DNA strand can strip away the skepticism most of us wear as armor, and how this condition magnifies some of the risks we all face in opening our hearts to others. A well-researched, perceptive exploration of a rare genetic disorder seen through the eyes of a mother and son. Eli and especially Gayle are beautifully drawn, and their struggles with an unknown future are both unique to their situation and universal to all parents.
