Book Review: e- Love (Terms & Conditions Applied) by Ankit Bohra

e- Love (Terms & Conditions Applied)

Author: Ankit Bohra
Publisher: Half Baked Beans
Rating: 2.5/5

“e- Love” is a simple yet heart melting love tale about two people who meet with the help of technology, fall in love and then leave their destiny in the hands of technology. Yes, that’s e- Love for you, in a nutshell. The protagonist of the story, Ankit, comes under Cupid’s grip and falls for Akshi. But is virtual love the only thing that it takes to form a solid foundation for any relationship? Or does it require more?

Grab your copies soon to get an answer.

My opinion
‘e- Love’ is a love tale with lot of technology added to it. And that does justice with the title. The cover of the book is splendid (Kudos Book Bakers) and the title is also nice. A special mention about the suitability of the asterisk and the caption below the title. The blurb is short but it spills all the beans before the readers, even before the interest is developed. This can act as a negative factor for the sale of the book (may be).

The font (style, size), organization of the content, contents section, title of the chapters and the other technical aspects are presented in a very refined form. The story is, however, very much predictable. Nowhere in the story, does the author drop a bombshell that may help in making the reader’s jaws drop. The flow is smooth yet stodgy. But considering this as the debut attempt, the presentation and plotting is worth appreciation.

Time and again several short forms have been used like ‘Hf’ for Have Fun and ‘Ak’ for Akshi, etc. That was annoying to me but then since the book demanded this kind of language, it became palatable gradually.

The book lacks proper editing and proofreading as one can encounter punctuation errors (tenses, wrong use of apostrophe), missing words, wrong formation of sentences- time and again.

Best Wishes to the author!
