Book Review: Love...will find its way? by Ashish Ranjan

Love…will find its way?

Author: Ashish Ranjan
Publisher: Leadstart Publishers (Frog books)
Rating: 2.5/5

Love is an uncanny emotion as it is ever evolving. But lust is transient. The thin line that distinguishes love from lust is imperceptible. ‘Love…will find its way?’ is about the turbulence faced by the protagonist in deciding between love, lust and career. The plot of the story begins with innocence and later transforms into self- indulgence and greed, rather lust. The hero, Luv, has a bone to pick with his parents because of their constant badgering to score well in academics. Heedless towards the actual problems their child is facing, the parents keep on pressurizing Luv. Failing to prove himself to his parents, failing in the matter of love and failing in whatever he does, Luv finds himself between the devil and the deep blue sea. Should he put an end to his life and ease all the pain or should he retreat and fight back with new energy? Will his love return to him at any point of time? Will his parents ever understand his needs?

My opinion
‘Love… will find its way’ is a simple read. The plot of the story is predictable and is not new to the readers. The narration is lucid and easy to comprehend. The dialog delivery is fine. The cover of the book is apt but the title is grammatically incorrect. Perhaps inversion of words does not enhance the meaning of the title. The character sketches have been done perfectly but the sequence of the entry of the characters is ambiguous.

The ‘sexual’ element has been stretched way too much in the book. And this is the reason I did not find it interesting. The story begins with the protagonist describing his first crust when he was in UKG and the journey continues till the narrator reaches class 12th. The flow of the story is fine but the events are not that catchy.

The proofreading has been done minutely and very rarely can one spot errors in the sentence formation/ question formation (like in the title itself).

Overall, a week plot and humdrum climax.

Best wishes to the author!
