Excerpt from Book:

Love = Sex? Love+Sex=? Love-Sex=??? Sex-Love=????

This is not a book to teach you about love or how to get a beautiful girl to bed, rather it reveals how bad things can get if you don’t set your priorities right. It’s a story about the most explored life aspect ‘ Love’ ‘Sex’.

YUVI, a pleasure seeking boy, falls victim to the same notorious life facet called love. Simran’s beauty sweeps him off from his feet and he leaves no stone unturned to seek her special attention.

As he falls in love, he also sleeps around with all the erroneous girls, and when his fate threatens to take his love down, he promises himself to stop all of this and come out of the wreckage … But then, his past deeds come back to his present, and that tears his life apart. What follows is an uneasy course of getting his love back on board.

The story reveals the life of today’s youth, their friendships, feelings, priorities, and ineptitude to handle relationships while not forgetting their turmoil between the two critical facets of life: LOVE & SEX.

Love makes the world go round … Or is it Sex? Based on real life experiences and tea time gossips.

There are many boys who fall for beautiful girl but cannot stop flirting with other girls. I came across one of such guy who said once to me, “There is always goal keeper at goal-post but still goal goes inside it. Same thing applies to girl as well”. You must be thinking, what a cheap mentality? But still there are lots of girls falling for that guy as he is smart, good-looking, humorous and always throws cheesy line. Girls who fall for him are so convinced that this boy cannot do anything wrong with them. Even after wrong thing happened to them, this kind of guy come out so easily with innocent face/good story and girls believe in those stories (I have met those girls as well and tried to warn them but oops, poor girls). These kind of guys have 2 faces: true face when they are with friends and fake face when they are with girls.

Author focused on such guys and Protagonist of this novel – Yuvi is one of those guys but here, (eventually) he realize his mistakes and tries to resolve the things but his past deeds tears his life apart. This book is about guy’s perspective on love and how they actually deal with his love and lust. There are good guys as well, so do not consider every guy is like Yuvi but if you want to understand mentality of such guy, then read this book. Overall enjoyable novel.

Note: I received a copy of book from Author and I am very much thankful to him for same.

That’s Not The End

She says, you don’t know what pain is.
Ohh yes, I don’t know what pain is.
Outcast by friends at age of 7 wasn’t pain.
forbidden by rich parent at age of 9 wasn’t pain.
working in coal mill at age of 13 wasn’t pain.
working hard and starting own business at age of 20 wasn’t pain.
getting new friends after 13 years wasn’t pain.
falling in love with you and found you never loved me wasn’t pain.
Yes, I don’t know what pain is.
you raised by rich family with silver spoon in mouth,
greedy boyfriend leaving you for more money and you feel pain.
you are right.. I don’t know what pain is.

Book Review : PS, I Love You

P-S-I-LOVE-YOUName: P.S. I Love You by Cecelia Ahern
Genre: Fiction Language: English Pages: 503
Published: 2004
My Rating: ★★★★★
Started(Re-Read): 20th April, 2015 Completed: 30th April, 2015

Excerpt from Book:

They were childhood sweethearts – no one could imagine Holly and Gerry without each other.

Until the unthinkable happens. Gerry’s death devastates Holly. But as her 30th birthday looms Holly discovers that Gerry has left her a bundle of notes, gently guiding her into her new life without him, each signed ‘PS, I Love You’.

With some help from her friends, and her noisy and loving family, Holly finds herself laughing, crying, singing, dancing – and being braver than ever before.

Life is for living, she realises – but it always helps if there’s an angel watching over you.

Splendid.. Worth Reading.. Witty..

“P.S. I Love You” talks about unique love between Gerry and Holly. It’s like “Platonic Love”. After Gerry’s death, Gerry comes to Holly’s life on her thirtieth birthday in the way of letters filled with love and signed, P.S. I Love You which will continue till next 12 months (1 letter for each month). These letters encourage Holly to move on and live without him and be happy, which is a core of this novel.

Some good lines from Novel:

  • Shoot for the moon, even if you fail, you’ll land among the stars
  • Don’t be afraid to fall in love again. Open your heart and follow where it leads you…and remember, shoot for the moon.
  • what a luxury it was for people to hold their loved ones whenever they wanted
  • Sometimes there is only one thing left to say, P. S. I Love You….
  • Finding someone you love and loves you back is a wonderful feeling. But finding a true soulmate is an even better feeling. A soulmate is someone who understands you like no other will be there for you forever no matter what.
  • You gotta be rich to be insane, Hol. Losing your mind is not a luxury for the middle class.
  • Don’t mind all those people who say that you should be back to normal in a month or two. Grieving is all part of helping yourself anyway.
  • Seeming and being are not one and the same.
  • We haven’t lost everything, if we haven’t lost our hope.

“PS, I Love You” is debut novel of Cecelia. I have heard a lot about this novel and I wanted to read it since long time. When I complete it, I was so emotional. When loved ones leaves you suddenly, life doesn’t stop. When you try to forget, you think more about them. It’s not easy and always painful to forget. But you have to live and complete his/her dream. The Show (Life) Must Go On. In novel, There are many moments where you will smile and where you will feel sadness of Holly. It’s really engaging. Do Not Miss. Buy it and Read it.
