To Read or Not To Read:
Love – A strange feeling. There are so many things written about this emotion, yet there is so little known. Sachin Garg has successfully pulled off putting forward the age old theory of ‘opposites attract’ in this story line. The book revolves around three couples who are either emotionally, socially, or physically opposite. It is very interesting how all the three stories have been interconnected. First few pages are slow moving but the pace quickens post that. The plot is very well written, however, the story delivery lacked the efforts to catch attention. The story is written in thirst person narration and the language used is fluent, no grammatical errors, and easy to understand. The book cover adds color to your shelf and looks stunning. Grab this easy to read book for those summer afternoons when you are hogging on Mango (because I was too!)
“I’ve always believed that love is not what you say. Love is what you do.” - A sentence which struck a chord with me (because I believe in it since ages)
