About The Book: In Course Of True Love!, the debut novel of Sanjeev Ranjan, presents a sweet tale of puppy love and all that it signifies.
In the book, the protagonist is Aarush, a reticent 16-year-old. Things are not going too well in his life—his parents are not impressed with his reasonably good exam score of 90 percent. He subsequently moves to Bokaro to pursue further studies.
There he becomes hopelessly besotted with Aachankya, a girl who happens to be a popular college heartthrob. Surprisingly for him, his feelings are reciprocated by Aachankya. Their story has all the hallmarks of a teenage crush—pounding hearts, sneaking glances, coy smiles, endless giggles, and stolen moments.
Though initially projected as a simple love story that takes place in college, as the plot develops, it makes the readers wonder if there is more to it than meets the eye. It makes them question whether it is possible for true love to blossom at the tender age of 16. Or perhaps, as always, a mere infatuation is being misconstrued as true love.
In Course Of True Love! takes the common teenage phenomenon of puppy love and seeks to capture its innocent, bittersweet quality. More importantly, it takes a look at the supposedly transient nature of infatuation to see if it hides something deeper and more lasting.
Through Aarush’s story, the author makes the readers think about the mysteries of love, its purpose, meaning, and journey.
The book was released on January 2, 2012. It was published by Srishti Publishers & Distributors.
Review: I got very late in reading “In Course of true Love” By Sanjeev Ranjan. But finally I got time to read a beautiful love story which touched my heart. Sanjeev had nicely portrayed the relationship between Aarush and Aachankya. One will never get bored reading each and every page. It was simple and sweet without any complications. The end pages really made me emotional. It was purely a puppy love with sad and happy moments. The blurb of the book is perfect with the story. I really liked the cover and the title of the story which clearly showed the love and romance. Roses are a symbol of love which was clearly shown in the story. I personally loved the character Aarush. He was shy and full of love. Expressions were very nicely written like phone conversations, chats, romantic talks. Overall a good and simple love story without any complications. Sanjeev had a good writing style. I am waiting for something exciting in his next novel. All the best Author.
