Authored by Ravinder Singh, I Too Had A Love Story is his debut novel. The main ingredient of every love story us the honesty attached to it and this one is present in this novel to a great extent.
The USP of this book is the honesty with which it is written – a tale of true yet painful love. It touched a chord deep within my heart and also that of readers worldwide. It has gone on to become a national bestseller with thousands of copies in print.
One always remembers that first touch, that first kiss, that first of every relationship. All this has been captured very beautifully by the author. While reading it one can almost feel the emotions that are penned down in the book and honestly I was close to tears by the time I reached the end of I Too had a Love Story.
The book, I too had a love story, takes off when four old friends decide to meet each other for the first time after a few years out of college. Their topic of discussion, like all boys talk, soon moves to girls when each of the four friends discuss about marriage and the girl of their dreams. Once they go back home, Ravin, the protagonist, sees an online matrimonial ad and registers for the same just for kicks.
And as fate would have it, he ends up talking to a girl named Khushi. And even though, both of them don’t meet for a long time, their friendship starts over the phone and soon blossoms into love after many late night chats and phone calls. The beauty in which the author captures these conversations is commendable and makes one smile after every page.
The story continues forward when both of them meet for the first time and then take their relationship onto the next level. Readers of this book are bound to fall in love with the two main characters and the sweet and cute conversations between them. I too had a love story is one that is filled with pure innocence and that is what makes it even more special.
The climax of the story is one that will move you to tears. I will not reveal the climax but it is commendable in the way in which the author touches those painful chords inside all of us. I too had a love story is definitely a must read book for every person who has been in love and especially for those who have loved and lost someone special.
