Who can read?
The story is targeted towards the readers who love to read fiction stories that revolve around themes like love, friendship, romance, etc. As the story is written in a universal language, the book can be read by teenagers also.
How good is the author’s writing style?
Rajesh Talwar is one such author who explores and experiments in many genres in fiction. This is my fourth book of his and this time the story has totally stumbled me. All his books in general have an easy language that appeals to the readers of almost every. The elements like vocabulary, grammar, and speed of the story in this book is as good as his other works, but somewhere a little lag towards the 3/4th of the story is felt. The narration is engaging and the emotional quotient is well maintained.
How entertaining is the book?
Love stories are always the ever-green narrative in the fiction genre. What if the love story between two people has a twist because of the intruding of another person, directly or indirectly? The story thus becomes a question of beliefs, values, ethics, and emotions. Though feelings are overpowered by the conscience, sometimes the person’s value model of life changes the course of the life. Here, with the two titles entwined into one, the story can be seen as two sub-plots where the characters are the same but the choices in their lives make the difference.
The book revolves around three best friends Karthik, Luv & Jeet. They share a definite bond of unconditional love. The drift in their relationship starts when Luv develops romantic feelings with Jeet’s fiancee, Simran. The book is a perfect entertainer.
A one-time interesting tale of love and emotions.
