that thing called LOVE by Tuhin Sinha

The tag line of the book says….An Unusual Love Story and it indeed is unusual…unexpected…and about convoluted lives of the protagonists……no one is really really happy ….even in the end…
I normally don’t like books with sad endings….and at the end of this one was not really happy neither was it sad…..it was just and ending which denoted life goes on……
It’s about a guy who is engaged to some girl his parents want him to get married to…but falls in love with a married lady with a kiddo….it is a mess…..and not only the life of the main protagonist mayak is a mess….everyone around him also has messy confused lives….
Overall the book is very engaging….it is set in Mumbai….you can picture the Moccha…the Juhu Circle…the Juhu beach…..as you read about it….but not sure what I am feeling reading it…it is not a ‘feel good’ book for sure….its is almost disturbing….

PS:(22nd September): I have been thinking about it wondering what about the book disturbed me….I think it was because it is about TOXIC relationships..

TOXIC relationships are those relationships that are doomed….you cant live with it….you cant live without it…you know it is bad for you…but yet you are so addicted to it..you need a major detox routine to get out of it…and yet it is so easy to get back into it….back into the downward spiral….towards destruction……its sad……:-(
