Snapshot: A lot of times doubts break relationships, even the best ones, even the ones where the hearts are in complete resonance. This story is on the same lines, with some love , a lot of confusion, and an understanding of relationships.

The Review:  The story begins with Arya lost in thoughts of Neel (originally named as Swapneel) whom she had considered her one true love but they had recently broken up.  The initial few pages are about with her conversations with her collegue and friend Dhruv which built her sadness and depression in coping up with the disastrous out come of a relationship whcih had seemed for a lifetime. Neel brakes up with her casually saying he couldnt maintain what is called "a long distance relationship". However she still searches to find the meaning of it all, to decide whether to believe in love at all. The stories move back and forth with her remembering theri relationship right from the day they saw each other for the first time. Arya's parents are worried she would recover from the heartbreak. Her dad knows a secret, which lies at the base of the tornedo in her relationship, but he needs to conform it. What is the hidden truth? What is so powerful to break a relation that felt right from day one? Will she be able to take it? Will she believe in love afterall? Read the book to know more.

The style of writing though simple isn't very attractive. It is laced with a lot of immature casual dialogue and I am personaly not a fan of such discourse, especially when it comes to writing. the plot could have been built better and the suspense could have been more layered and better presented. The end seems rushed. 

The Verdict:
Positives:  The simple language is appealing to the readers who like "Chetan Bhagat" readers.

Negatives: Those who love word play or a difficlut plot may be disspointed.

Overall:  At a price of 95 INR it is a good light read while travelling. 3 stars on 5.
