You are my love forever
Author : Amit Nangia
L I F E a four letter word, difficult, unfair, puzzling yet thrilling, exciting and compelling. Human minds are strange. We do a lot of things at a lot of time that goes beyond our logical self. Logic seems baseless at times. And such is LOVE. There is no parameter where we measure love. They say, there is no limit in love.
They say, you don't love someone because they're perfect; you love despite the fact that they're not.
Is it ?
'You are my love forever' by Amit Nangia based on a contemporary storyline, falls under the romance genre and has been a good- pass- time read for me. In the settling backdrop of Shimla the story revolves around the main leads Tarun and Neha. They meet, they talk, they fall in love and it ends. No, it's not that easy. Especially, when both are coming from a painful past and own a baggage of gut - wrenching memories. Adding up to that, when life doesn't stop giving tests after test, will they survive?
The plot felt quite genuine and unimaginably unique from the rest. Writing style is absolutely lucid and moreover, the narration of the past from both the ends is well depicted specially from Neha's side of the story is so skillfully written that I can't help but get hooked to the book. Now, talking about the book I need to mention two other side characters Ritu and Gaurav. To be honest, I like Ritu's character more than the leads. Her never giving up self. Her unapologetic attitude and importantly, her always- positive approach towards life even after bearing something so traumatic, has ended up making me her fan.
The story started at a good ease with its necessary plot developments but Nangia put an abrupt full stop to that in the 8th chapter and after that the book got unnecessarily fast which made the pace disturbed . Now coming back to the character developments, I didn't like Neha's character in the end . The 360 degree turning in herself has irked me while reading.
There are so many emotions freely flowing throughout the book that at one point I feel a bit overwhelmed. The twist is uncalled-for and the ending is a bit clichéd.
If you are a cliche-lover, which I am in some particular cases, you will definitely enjoy this book over a cup of tea. Cover art could have been a bit better but nonetheless, I enjoy not being too draggy, not too stiff. I had a good time.
My Ratings : 3.7/ 5
P.S. the author note / morals at the end of every chapter has my whole heart 🧡
