"Army Girl Steals Civilian's Heart" by Oswald Pereira is beautiful, realistic and a little predictable story!

The plot revolves around the protagonist Oscar Pereira who happens to be a civilian, working for a newspaper agency to be precise and Amrita Datta, belonging to an army background with her father and brothers serving in Indian Army.

The author has wonderfully depicted the practical and actual journey of two lovers belonging to different religious beliefs, economic and social status as well

Army girl steals civilian's heart

Army girl steals civilian's heart is a romance novel. The plot revolves around the protagonist Oscar Pereira who works for a newspaper agency and Amrita Datta, belonging to an army background with her father and brothers serving in Indian Army. Her family always had problems with the civilians but still, she falls for one and at last convinced her parents to agree to her choice.

This novel is really fast paced as if the author was trying to complete it in a hurry.

the title seems so indulging .the cover is good . as a defense brat or I would say navy brat I loved the book .
here is the short review.
This is a very light-hearted romantic novelette which takes the reader up and down through different emotions. Truly, Amrita and Oscar belong to different worlds, but their love helped them create a unique world of their own. The love musings are nothing new, but the innovative narration makes it sound refreshi

The word army inculcates something like to sober up, which seems to many like making life “so serious,” as if seriousness precluded joy, warmth, spontaneity and fun. But there can be a delusional, blind quality to non-sober festivities. To have our eyes open soberly with all our senses and memory intact allows some of the most rewarding, soul-nourishing, and long-lasting pleasures possible. Does this mean that Seriousness is too boring to the playful human condition? A heart of stone t

The novel is one of my first Kindle version so far. The experience with Kindle format was great, as the novel was a light read and I was able to finish this novel in about 3 days. The novel attracted me due to its title- An army girl steals civilian’s heart. I am an army fan and going by that craze I finished this novel quite soon. The story is a romantic fiction between an Army girl and a civilian news reporter. At first, I was misled by the title thinking about the soldier posted falling in lo ...more

I had heard of various stories where girls had fallen in love with army men but I was always keen to know the other way round story. And I finally found a book that I was looking for.

This is a simple love story that revolved around Oscar and Amrita. The male protagonist is very good reporter, a Catholic who lives in a huge joint family. The female pro

'Army Girl Steals Civilian's Heart' by Oswald Pereira has a longish title that I did not much care about, but it was precisely this that made me want to read it. For you see, I too am an army girl, coming from a Punjabi Army family. The older generation were all in the army, so I could relate to some of the army perceptions about civilian life that have been talked about in the book. That was so typical, and so funny -- at times.

Love in the time of communal tension and ghar vapsi. Its like fighting a herculean battle. Though the book is printed in 2017 period seems old. But the issue is evergreen. Inter religion marriages are always tricky.

Amrita Datta and Oscar Pereira are as different as chalk and cheese. She is an army officer daughter having loads of money. He is also from an erstwhile landowner family; but they were ruined due to drinking. She is an intern in the newspaper where he is a seasoned reporter. She is a

“There are times when love isn’t lost, it gets all the more strengthened with the tangles of the extended relations that come with it. And with that entangled state, it stays put for life.”

Oswald Pereira has a typical love story in the novel “Army Girl Steals Civilian’s Heart”. However, sometimes typical love stories can still engage the readers as to what will happen next. The suspense of the ending, the journey of the couple, their experiences with the parents and relatives on the either side,

When I heard about the title "Army Girl Steals Civilian's Heart", I found it a bit bizarre from the terms army girl and civilian heart. But I started reading the tale I only surmised that these are perfect terms to describe it wonderfully.
Revolving around the love between two hearts, the two young reporters, taking culture, tradition and restrictions, must say, this tale is perfectly penned. A painful glimpse of two striving young hearts is focused on.

"Army girl steals civilian's heart " Title is self explanatory. Book cover is also accompanying the title.
It's a amazing love story of two persons Amrita and Oscar who belong to different religion, culture and above all different manners. The story is described in a realistic manner that at the end of every chapter you will be excited to know what will happen next?
Some may find vocab problem but on the whole it is understood according to context and fitted appropriately.

The story is a medium paced love story of Oscar Pereira, a civilian and Amrita Datta , an army child. Nothing very impressive about the story ,the usual cliche love story. They meet at Newstime , get to know each other , fall in love. The story then paces over in a typical way,where the couple faces difficulties in making their parents agree for the marriage and also problems in each other’s nature. The second half is basically their struggle to make their parent’s agree for their marriage.

A simple love story where the boy and girl are from different cultures.the story starts with them meeting at the work place, falling in love,knowing each other more,convincing their parents for their marriage,and finally getting approval.People from different backgrounds need not sacrifice their lives, love instead put more efforts and have faith in love.And I wish everyone had a maasiji like the girl in the story had.I won't reveal it why, read the book and get to know that.Happy reading.

Marriage is , has and will always; for generations to come be a tough decision , and we Indians have made it tougher with all  our societal, religious, and economic division’s becoming a part of the decision making. A decision which already makes those two people sweat ( a choice which should depended on who the next person is not on the tags he/she carries)
