Can Love Happen Twice? - Ravinder Singh

When Ravin first said ‘I love you . . .’ he meant it forever. The world has known this through Ravin’s bestselling novel, I Too Had a Love Story. But did Ravin’s story really end on the last page of that book?

On Valentine’s Day, a radio station in Chandigarh hosts a very special romantic chat show. Ravin and his three best friends are invited as guests to talk about Ravin’s love story. But surprisingly everyone apart from Ravin turns up. As the show goes live, there is only one question in every listener’s mind: what has happened to Ravin?

To answer this question the three friends begin reading from a handwritten copy of Ravin’s incomplete second book—the entire city listens breathlessly, unable to believe the revelations that follow.

This highly anticipated sequel by Ravinder Singh is an emotional rollercoaster that bravely explores the highs and lows of love.

Review :

Ravinder Singh

The much awaited sequel to 'I too had a Love Story'.Its sad to say that this sequel has failed to meet the mountain - high expectations that the previous book has generated.Yet its a good book in its own way and deals with Ravin's second love.Once again,the different incidents during his love life is a treat to read.Simar is brought forth as a modern girl spoiled by her parents and is pursuing her degree in Belgium.Ravin meets her when he goes to work there and falls in love.He is still haunted by Khushi's memories. His dream in which Khushi says 'I'm happy for you , Shona' shows Khushi's big heart.As their love life moves smoothly, difference in opinion creeps between them over Ravin's parents and the climax involves another love failure for Ravin.The climax is almost predictable.The general trend, love failure - girl goes on with her life and boy ends up in a mental asylum is repeated though it is heartening to see Simar come for Ravin after hearing his condition.

The author's simple yet effective style once again stands out and screams for attention.The book makes for light reading and can be finished in one - go.A good book that brings out modern concept of love and the problems the lovers face.

Rating: 2.5/5
