Cover Page: As you all have now found out reading my previous reviews, I’m not, defiantly not a fan of cover pages like this. It kinda gross me out.
Plot: Again it was something new. The same old story, how a geek falls in love with the help of his Casanova friend. And I don’t like this kind of stories. Though I would say it was pretty descent. Yeah, I’m being a hypocrite right now, but it’s just, you know that kind of feeling when you don’t like something but you also don’t hate it. That’s how feel about this book.
Every time I tried kissing happiness, it came very close to me and then pushed me away.
Maybe there is some insane pleasure in self-destruction and hitting rock bottom because once you reach there, you can only go up.
I can see your face,But I can’t see you anymore.I can look into your eyes,But I can’t read them anymore.You hold my hand,But I don’t feel the love anymore.You touch my body,but you don’t touch my soul anymore.
Overall: So, in first half of the book there were some sweet moments that brought smile to my face every time I read. Arjun was a student in IT engineering. First half was mainly about his life as a student/senior and his college days.
Though the second half got on me. It was somehow annoying to see how Arjun already knew and learned that every relationship is not a healthy one but still deliberately got into one to the point he started abusing his life at the end.
There are both negative and positive aspects of this book. I’m not a lover of romantic-cliche, if you’re read it. It is like a typical Bollywood movie. Also, the language is super easy to read, relatable as it is mainly focussed on youth and with world known relationship problems.
