Life. Love. Soul. Eternity.
(No spoilers)

These words were the constants of the book which spoke and garnered the most attention. Since Perfect Us, Durjoy has been concentrating on a contrasting form of writing which goes into the societal norms with the overlaying structure of love intact. A Touch of Eternity, set in a dystopian future has seen unprecedented success in Science and carved a breakthrough in Reincarnation of soul. The book has a subtle first act of introducing the characters with a good impression for the people to review and connect with. Druvan and Anvesha, born on the same day, have an attachment which goes beyond their timeline. However, greed and contrasting opinions create minor hurdles in their relationship. That is till the second act opens up in its full flourished glory. Durjoy sir really went the distance and crossed unknown boundaries of politics, religion and sanity of the mankind with a relative ease which makes the reader convinced in what the protagonists of the story are trying to talk through. However, some unexplained points and some over explained points create a drab in between the pages. The utopian setting defines the idea with ease but execution is a little bit messed up. But as Durjoy sir is a master of the Third Act of a novel, he executes the same with his finesse and star touch all the same. Druvan and Anvesha go through a real test of time and fate for their choices in the relationship which make you laugh as well as cry. The end really changes the tone of the book as no one could predicted such a dramatic ending.

Conclusively, the book follows in the footsteps of Durjoy sir’s previous work, Wish I could Tell You, which makes us think for a relatively more time in comparison to other Coffee table Novels. Also, I have seen Durjoy sir use his Engineering degree in some sense which means that his four years in DTU was not a complete waste. XD.
A recommended Novel for people who want to read something afresh in Love stories compared to the half baked tragedies with only boyfriend- girlfriend drama and earth shattering depictions of sexual intercourses. Soulmates is a word which couples often use nowadays for legitimising their relationship and seem it make forever. But it isn’t forever until and unless you live the concept of ' Do Jism, Ek Jaan’.
