Book Review: Believe the Make-Believe by Aditya Choudhary


TITLE: Believe the Make-Believe

AUTHOR:  Aditya Choudhary

GENRE: Poetry

LENGTH: 126 Pages




Believe the Make-Believe is a poetry collection written over a period of 5 years. The topics are diverse but one thing in common about these verses is an undercurrent of self-exploration through various experiences of life and being with and working with different kinds of people. A lot of times we face situations that forces us to change our perception about life, each poem sprouted through such an experience. A lot of times things make no sense at all, that’s when we are forced to believe the make-believe.



🌠It is a compilation of 76 quick poetry that can be read in one sitting.

These verses have been composed over a period of time and are candid reflections of the poet that he has felt throughout his life when possibly he was creating his opinions on several things emerging around.Believe the make Believe

🌠The passages are very diverse and occasionally sudden but then they all speak about discovering something within yourself.

I could link to so many of them because sometimes I too go through those emotions of distress, difficulties, anxiety, chaos, and sometimes nothing makes sense at all.

🌠There were so many poems that I liked and one was ‘Autopilot’ which says,


“𝑴𝒂𝒏𝒚 𝒅𝒂𝒚𝒔 𝑰 𝒋𝒖𝒔𝒕 𝒓𝒖𝒏 𝒐𝒏 𝒂𝒖𝒕𝒐𝒑𝒊𝒍𝒐𝒕. 𝑰 𝒘𝒂𝒌𝒆 𝒖𝒑, 𝒘𝒂𝒔𝒉 𝒖𝒑, 𝒘𝒐𝒓𝒌 𝒖𝒑 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒘𝒊𝒏𝒅 𝒖𝒑”

(I think we can correlate to it these days in lockdown)

🌠Then there were poems like Leave the kids alone, Long live the lies, Divine Torture and my special favorite was ‘Hope’ because I am a very hopeful person.🤷

🌠I overall enjoyed the poems and they have the potential to engage with the reader because I suppose everyone runs through the stage of self-discovery and crises.

🌠I would just end with some lines I loved,

“𝐈 𝐚𝐦 𝐝𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐥𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭, 𝐧𝐨 𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐜𝐚𝐧 𝐬𝐭𝐨𝐩 𝐦𝐞 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚 𝐛𝐢𝐠 𝐛𝐢𝐭𝐞”😋🍴

Also, the cover was really cool😍.
