About the book: Life has a myriad of essences of varied experiences which a romantic Bollywood movie can express on celluloid in two hour and much more than can be covered in a two hundred odd page romantic novel.
At different stages of life we encounter varying shades of love. At different ages the fundamental demands of love have different thirst to be quenched. Love keeps on redefining itself at different ages till we come across that particular person who shows us the real magic of love.
This story is a journey of Aman in pursuit of love. As a schoolboy, love born in his eyes. Eyes betray him… He felt it in his heart when he started college. Even his heart betrays him…
Love was descending down his body each time, he failed and at last it descends down to the extent where he needs to unzip to show his love.
Will ever Aman’s quest of love comes to an end? How his love does find its way towards him?
Love is not an exam to get through or a race to be won. That person deserted you because the prayer of your love that is waiting for you is a million times stronger. Believe in those prayers. The prayers may light your path towards the love in real sense…
Let us walk in Aman’s shoes and experience the crests and troughs in the graph of his turbulent life.
Review: First look of the title, cover and Prologue of the book attracts you to read the book. The title is very different and interesting and has a hidden meaning to it which will later reveal in the story. The cover of the book is very pleasing. The blurb of the book clearly explains the journey of a young boy aman and his experience of love. It was quite long. The story clearly explains about the love and its consequences. Aman’s journey of love and romance was wild and romantic and he also faced the failures in life. The emotions were perfectly blended in the story. I really loved the end where love was beautifully explained by the protagonist. The social issues were nicely explained by the Author in the end. The love failures which Aman had faced were really heart touching specially his relationship with Swapna. The writing style was simple.
The only drawback was some editing mistakes and the sex part in the initial chapters were too much. It could have been cut, it short. I felt the end was quite abrupt. It could have been made, it interesting. I loved the character Alex and his selfless love.
Overall, The love saga in the book was good to an extent. The failure in love which changed the life of the protagonist Aman was explained very nicely. The book contains spice, love, emotions and pain in failure of love. One can read the book in leisure time. As a debut writer Amit had done a fair job. Good luck Amit
