love-lasts-forever-400x400-imadw3zyn8ydgah9Love Lasts forever : If you don’y marry your love by Vikrant Khanna as a review copy from Nimi Vashi of the Readers Cosmos and would like to thank her for the book. The book revolves around two love stories wherein one story is an eye opener for the other and changes the course of the story.

 The Blurb:

So you think your love can last forever? Get married!

Eighteen-year-old Ronit falls madly in love with Aisha the moment he meets her at his graduation day from a naval college. He believes he has found his perfect soul mate and come what may, his love for her will last forever. Seven years later, he gets married to her. Big mistake! A week later, he completely hates her and believes she has turned into a devil.

But his perception about love and life change when he hears the poignant love story of Shekhar, his Captain, on a ship that later gets hijacked by the pirates of Somalia.

As they are left fighting for their lives, they confront if love truly can last forever? Or does it get too late?

The story:

Ronit is eighteen when he sees Aisha, his classmate, Priyank’s sister, on the day of his graduation from a naval college and falls in love with her. She reciprocates his feelings and they decide to get married seven years later. SHE CHANGES OVERNIGHT and he feels that she is not the Aisha he knows. He starts hating her and decides to go on a ship even though it was his off period. He plans to come back from the voyage and divorce her.

As their ship, Adriatic, sails across the Indian Ocean, his Captain, Shekhar, gets nostalgic and starts telling him about his love story, his wife, their divorce and how he still loves her. Lost in the story, they forget to notice the approach of the Somalian pirates and their ship is hijacked and they are taken as hostages.

During the time his life hangs in balance at the mercy of the pirates and their employers, something changes.

My take:

A very fast paced story with two love stories intertwined. I loved the way Shekhar describes his love story, it seemed so real that it made me cry. Ronit and his friend, Joe Singh, are typical hostellers with mischief up their sleeve and Priyank is the typical GOOD boy.

The language is simple and the flow is good. The description of the atrocities of the pirates actually made me shiver, I pity those who have actually undergone it.

The end was unpredictable making the book all the more interesting.
