Review Time - Messed up! But all for love by Arvind Parashar
Messed Up! But All for Love
- Arvind Parashar
Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love.
- William Shakespeare
With such lines opening the novel, you can never fail being gripped to the story. This story is about the love life of Neil and Gauri, after their marriage. It is not just the charming love, but the love they hold firm past facing so many ups and downs in life. Neil gets into a number of troubles and fights to come out of them, realizing his mistakes, to prove his love for Gauri.
The story has said both about love and friendship, with love at its depth. Main plot takes course with Neil as the protagonist, who tells about his life, from his point of view. The sub-plots are driven with the main characters such as Gauri, Sriyani, Tom, Jerry, James, Mehr, Drishti, Somesh and Antriksha with whom the plot takes a sharp turn. Yet, the plot travels towards one conclusion.
You are living a happy life and suddenly you feel everything beside you is falling apart. You are put into the situation where you lose the love of your life and then you find that it is a well and pre-planned play to make you suffer. Same happens with Neil and he is completely messed up! But all for love…
The author Arvind Parashar has given the story a simple language with so much variations including the crisp of thrill, the joy of friendship, a mistake of choice, a touch of crime but then the clasp of love. Being a subjective narration, it is easy for the readers to put into the shoes of the protagonist. The rise and fall of situations in the story will keep you entertained and the last few pages of the tale will make you wonder like “what the hell has just happened?” Also, the tail of this story is the head of the second novel! Pretty excited to read the next one.
