Then the Doorbell Rang is about Jane’s roller-coaster journey as she explores the mystical phenomenon called Life.
I would like to thank Author’s Channel for the review copy. My review here is totally honest and unbiased.
Honestly I had mixed feelings when I finished the book. But definitely I enjoyed the read. The story totally revolves around different kind of relationship with different people. When I saw the title and cover of the book I felt that it’s going to be a suspense thriller. But it turned out be with the flavor of romance with little thriller.
Jane was completely shattered when she loses important persons from her life one after the other. And she comes to know that those people had one face in front of her and an another face right behind her. That two faced people story gave me all interest to read the story furthermore without any second thought.
Jane decides to explore her past life by travelling to India. I was completely hooked up with the story till like 150 pages but after that the story was kind of repetitive. Jane travel exposure was happening almost with every person whoever she meets.
The language was simple and elegant. This book obviously touches the deep root of the love and pain behind it. Jane character was so good that she remained me of every girl who belongs to strong heart category. At times we tend to know who we are only at the right moment. Jane belongs to that side of person. There were very small characters in the story which stands out uniquely with the author portrayal of them.
Overall “Then The Door Bell Rang” handles the contrast relationships in an exquisite way and seized my moment at many places very beautifully.
