Book Review – The Deliberate Sinner by Bhaavna Arora

About The Author: 

Dr. Bhavna Arora is a new-generation writer who is an avid learner of life. She is a young enthusiast who has two MBA degrees and a Doctorate from Pittsford University in Leadership to her credit.

A philanthropist at heart, she has been sponsoring an underprivileged boy’s education. She also works closely with an institute for special children.

Book Cover: This cover completely suits the story of the book. The exceptional and attention seeking cover.

Characters: The protagonist is Rihana, a rich, modern, independent woman with sanguine belief. Her husband Veer, an ambitious, dominating, person who is too self-centered. Raj, Rihana’s good friend and ‘love of his life’. Avinash her close friend and an important character of the story.

Writing style: Language and  writing have kept consciously simple by the author, the person who reads is never over laden with witty lines and idealistic terminologies.

I liked: Author tries to sum up the story without stretching it unnecessarily. The story has the potential to keep you glued till the last part because of the author’s narration style and plot of the story.

This book provides an eminent example of the true male subjugated culture of India.

The Author does not portray Rihanna as a sufferer, but projected her as a combatant and a champion. It is an excellent interpretation to comprehend physical tinges of a woman, and its importance in any relationship.

I disliked: the only thing I disliked about this book is the author has narrated a tale which constantly creates a negative notion regarding men.


More or less all the girls would be able to recount to the plot in some way or other. The way Rihana copes up with life is truly quite realistic. May be that is the reason the book appears to be so sensible.

In this story the author has explained various relationship issues like – Domestic Violence, Marital Rape, societal problems (premarital sex), Indian Mentality regarding Marriage (Dowry, man’s dominance) and consequences of Divorce in a womanly way. However, Rihanna’s character is designed as an empowered and self-respecting woman and she doesn’t consider herself as a sufferer but a survivor. Proper amount of twists and turns along with the brilliant & easy going narration This story has come out well as a form of a book.

Although a responsive subject to deal with, debut author, Bhaavna Arora does absolute justice to her description of the vital characters, Veer and Rihana. Written in a not so formal manner, fresh language, the tale is firm, witty, touching and a swift read too. This tale  brilliantly illustrates the wishes, the potency of a modern and self-determined woman.
