Review: When Only Love Remains by Durjoy Datta

Name of the Book: When Only Love Remains

Author: Durjoy Datta

Publisher: Penguin

About the Author: Durjoy Datta was born in New Delhi, India, and completed a degree in engineering and business management before embarking on a writing career. His first book-Of Course I Love You!-was published when he was twenty-one years old and was an instant bestseller. His successive novels-Now That You're Rich!; She Broke Up, I Didn't!; Ohh Yes, I Am Single!; If It's Not Forever; Till the Last Breath; Someone Like You; Hold My Hand-have also found prominence on various bestseller lists, making him one of the highest-selling authors in India. Durjoy also has to his credit two television shows, Sadda Haq (ChannelV) and Veera (Star Plus), both of which have done exceedingly well on Indian television.

Blurb: I've imagined this in my head so many times. I've always thought about what I would say; what I would do, and how it would all turn out to be. And every time I would remove some detail ...She's a flight attendant-young, bright and living her dream. He's a heart broken singer on his way to becoming big. She's an ardent fan of his. He can't imagine why and yet seems to find comfort in her words. It's the first time they are together and in their hearts both are wishing, hoping and praying that the night would never end. That the time they are spending together lasts and lasts ...In the world of imperfection, there is always someone just right for you. (Via Infibeam)

Verdict: As the blurb clearly states, this story revolves around Devrat and Avanti. Avanti being a flight attendant while Devrat a heartbroken singer who wishes to make it big for himself and to make his family proud of him. Avanti being Devrat’s ardent fan always had wished and dreamed of meeting him in real and has pictured over and over on the conversation she would have when she meets him. Then comes the night when they actually meet and instantly they gel up like they had known each other. What happens after their first meet? Will they continue meeting each other or just forget about each other just like meeting any other third person? If at all they continue meeting will destiny let them stay together or make them fall apart? This is all what the story tells us about.

1) Wonderful story.
2) Love the cover.
3) It teaches the worth and importance of hanging around to our loved ones even in hardships and clinging on the slightest ray of hope.
1)   First half was no different than any other story, regular story of a fan having crush on his favorite singer.
2)   Name goof up of Avanti as Avantika, once.
3)   Few editing mistakes.

To sum up with the review it’s a very good story. I would say the USP of this book is the wonderful story line that makes you ignore the few negatives of the book, specially the second half part. Loved the end of this book, the last few pages of this book is brilliant.

Ratings: 4 OUT OF 5.
