The last book of the Stranger trilogy, Forget me not, Stranger is here and it’s getting darker!

She may be killed soon… by the Stranger. She doesn’t know who or what he is: a ghost, a person or a figment of my imagination? All she knows of him is that he isn't just one thing: he is sexy and scary, terrific and terrifying. What does the Stranger have to do with a young, harmless girl like Rivanah, who works in a big city, stays away from her parents and has a screwed-up love life. Why would she be of any interest to him. Unless there is something about her own story that she herself does not know.

In the hotly anticipated final instalment of the Stranger trilogy, Rivanah will learn the answers to her many questions-What is it that binds her to the dead Hiya? Who is the Stranger? Why has he been following her all this while?-leading to an intense, breath taking climax.


This book is the rightful conclusion of this lengthy, thrilling tale. Rivanah indeed is about to find out about the Stranger and all her unanswered questions. With the way book 1 and book 2 led the readers thinking, half of book 3 was exactly that: leading them to the climax.

Coming to the story, Marry me, stranger and All yours, stranger had something in them which hooked every reader to it. So the expectations with Forget me not, stranger were very high. It stood to its expectations or not, that is up to the readers to decide. The proceeding of the story was in a very typical Novoneel Chakraborty way, with twists and turns in every chapter.

The ending may divide the readers into varying opinions which they are entitled to. However, it is definitely not something anyone would have expected. One may find oneself in dilemma and revisit the entire history of this thrilling tale.

Spoilers ahead!

Stranger is not a single person intruding a life of someone he specifically targeted. Stranger or after the story you'd know, 'Strangers' are apparently a group of emotional surgeons who operate on emotions of people and help them find the better versions of themselves.

With so much build up through out the prior two books and the half of this book, readers may feel confusion with how this ended. However, it’s worth a try!
