TITLE: LOST LOVE LATE LOVE
AUTHOR: NAMRATA GUPTA
GENRE: FICTION: ROMANCE
Kashika Sharma has a heart of a child. Her boyfriend, though seemed like someone over possessive about her, turns out to irritate us through his questions every time and taking more advantage of her social life. From the size of dress she wears, the people she should talk to, till using (spying?) her Facebook account, he had some strict rules to be followed by her.
The author’s take on emotional abuse is impressive.
That day, on their way to meet, seeing her talking Vidit, let his mind turn loose and there they broke up, after an unexpected incident. Vidit and Kashika grew closer in friendship without fear, as Vidit is already engaged. He helps her to understand that her previous love was not actually love, but just emotional abuse. Slowly Vidit and Kashika develop feelings for one another. But he is already engaged! And Vivaan is back too!
It is a very short read, a few pages more than 100 and could be read in a sitting or two. The end was shocking and I don’t really want it to end that way. The flow of the story is good with a right mixture of emotions and so is the character sketch of Vivaan, Vidit and Kashika. There are some spacing errors in the book and the punctuation formatting of dialogues in the last half is better than those of the first few pages. The writing style is simple to understand.
