Does the meaning of love change over time? A young, starry-eyed Ratna finds herself at the doorstep of her favourite author, Ronit Sukhdev, and a little white lie lands her the opportunity to stay at his place for a few days. But Ronit, devastated by his break-up with Tasha, has stopped writing, even as nitasha tries to move on from her past and is on a quest to make sense of her life choices. Funny and heartwarming, this is the captivating story of three very different yet similar people finding their way in life.
A fun, light hearted read that will have you captivated throughout. It's a slow paced story which takes its own sweet time to reach its pinnacle. The author has stressed more on the aspect of falling in love and it's pros and cons that are explained beautifully. It enhances that the main purpose of an artist is not creating a masterpiece for the sole means of an exhibit but to try to find his own true self. I fell in love with those lines instantly.
Ronit is somehow a dull, depressed author who looked at life in a painfully deep realistic way. He tried to outlook things from a negative point of view and at times that was too much perturbing. But the author has balanced his negativity well with Ratna's butterfly persona. The complexity of their bond was unfathomable and humorous as they were polar opposites.
I found myself disagreeing with Ronit end no. of times but there were these lines that stuck me with awe. (Swipe left)
The different POVs help a lot to go to the depth of all those emotions in the book.
It's a good book for the beginners, I guarantee that.
