14 Jan RAINBOW – The Shades of Love Book Review
The book talks of love and sex wondering if they can be an alternate for each other through the hero Yuvi and his love story. He falls for a girl called Simran, his neighbour and then he himself complicates his love story.
The story is straightforward enough and goes on a pretty predictable route. Girl meets boy and falls in love but then he cannot get out of his bad habits or rather easy ways. It is very relevant for the youth of today as many succumb to such pitfalls.
The author mentions that the book is out of his experiences and tales from his friends so it does read like a story of a misspent youth. Love and sex are the dominant theme of the book but not the only thing. The emotions and situations are well expressed in the book. The characters are well fleshed out and you are sure to find some of them in their friend circle.
Aman needs to work on his sentence construction as the errors make it frustrating to read as the story is engaging. The book needs a bit of editing making it sharper. Tighter narration and polished language could make it a delight to read.
I loved the quote on the book by the author ” A writer starts a book but a reader finishes it” So apt.
Hope fully the author will get his act together by his next book and so will the publisher.
I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.
Love = Sex? Love+Sex=? Love-Sex=??? Sex-Love=???? This is not a book to teach you about love or how to get a beautiful girl to bed, rather it reveals how bad things can get if you don’t set your priorities right. It’s a story about the most explored life aspect ‘ Love’ ‘Sex’. YUVI, a pleasure seeking boy, falls victim to the same notorious life facet called love. Simran’s beauty sweeps him off from his feet and he leaves no stone unturned to seek her special attention. As he falls in love, he also sleeps around with all the erroneous girls, and when his fate threatens to take his love down, he promises himself to stop all of this and come out of the wreckage … But then, his past deeds come back to his present, and that tears his life apart. What follows is an uneasy course of getting his love back on board. The story reveals the life of today’s youth, their friendships, feelings, priorities, and ineptitude to handle relationships while not forgetting their turmoil between the two critical facets of life: LOVE & SEX. Love makes the world go round … Or is it Sex? Based on real life experiences and tea time gossips.
