On the Way to the Wedding By Julia Quinn

It’s about love…about romance…about ‘moments’ when you realize…feel… this is Love….the protagonists fall in LOVE by just looking at the person….they hear music… something inside them flutters….( all bullshit na!! but does that really happen….umm..think about maybe it does!) and then they see someone else…and the same damn thing happens again…they are confused!! Finally they meet someone….who makes their toes tingle…flutter deep inside….they feel the excitement…..and yet they feel comfortable…like they have known the person all their life…is this LOVE!

Is love….the tingle…the excitement and the comfort all felt together for the same person….!!??!!

So have you had any of those ‘moments’? The book makes you think…..reflect…..go back in time….try to recollect your ‘moment’ and wonder….. Excitement indicates infatuation/attraction….Comfort is with friendship…..LOVE has to be a combination of the two…Does this perfect combo exist….I hope it does …somewhere out there…in the real world..

The book is set in a time when there were Dukes, Lords, Dutchees. Erls….social order….Balls…etc….a time very far from our current time….but the feelings are the same! The last part of the narrative is very very  filmy…..actully the whole book is filmy but the last part is full of twists…..boy finally after much confusion realizes that this is the girl for him….the girl agrees after much ado…..normally that would be the end of the story…..but Lo behold….the story has just began…there are twists….and turns….and twists again….eveytime you think it is done….there is another twist! Even though you know deep inside this is one of those books that HAVE to have a happy ending…you are still intrigued to see what is going to happen next….

The book kept me awake 2 nights till I finished it……so I guess it was gripping and not bad… but I guess I like cliché filmy love stories….so read it at your own discretion….!
