    Truly, Madly, Deeply memoirs of a broken heart s first love is one of the most wonderful romance novels I have read till date This is not your usual college kind of a fairy tale romance but a very unique and subtle love story with intense emotions right from the word go I picked up this book from a bookshelf in a store, just to sample it with my eyes after seeing the striking blue cover And for the next six hours straight, I was at the store on a bean bag, reading this delightful tale I finished this book in the store itself yet I bought the copy as it will always remind me of a feeling called love in this world Every page of this book is a delight to the reader It took me back to my school days, making me recollect my first love You laugh, cry and even dance with the protagonist Some moments are really heart touching, though it moves slowly at the start, it gathers pace in the middle The story is about the protagonist, Rahul and his love for a girl named Seema from his previous school The story is put on paper through a vivid narrative and the author using multiple POV s brilliantly to sketch the minute details of some of the most wonderful characters a reader might come across From essaying beautiful moments in a person s love life which they usually take for granted to portraying raw human emotions through effective dialogue and scenery, catches the attention of the reader The subtle use of metaphors and the added poetic effect are alluring and pleasant though some do seem like they have been stuffed in unnecessarily.Rahul is made to recollect his days of yore back home in India from his current location in Philadelphia In those days, Rahul was an extravagant, over confident youngster riding high on his academic success but in the present, he s shown to be a shadow of his past recovering from a heart break but is he really recovering That s the main element of the story In a viral promo that was released some months back, the author talked about the protagonist landing up there when the only thing he desired in this world was the comfort of Seema s lap Thus, the journey of Rahul from the apple of everyone s eyes to being a nothing is really well sketched and holds the reader s attention The way Rahul talks in first person as a normal, hormone driven teenager and when the author uses the third person to display his growing maturity is really the highlight of the book other than the surge of the confused emotions Though if the poetic lines just before the protagonist goes into flashback, should have been italicised or underlined to give the reader a hint that the flashback is about to begin It does get confusing in the earlier chapters before the reader starts expecting the same effect in the subsequent chapters.Seema is as the writer says Rahul s female equivalent but only beautiful Exactly how an on track love story falls to the wolves makes the reader sit up and take notice The author makes use of delicate misunderstandings which teenagers often have the habit of blowing them out of proportions, ego clashes cause the lead characters to drift apart only to realise that the enormity of their feelings was much than they had thought of The good times the characters share makes one recollect their school days and the innocent encounters of first love and then once the turbulent times begin, the story takes a while to sink in Heavy emotions mark the downfall of Rahul s love life Other than the main characters, some other characters like Sahil and Grazil are noteworthy even though they aren t a part of the main story Their loveable nature instantly strikes a chord with you Farha, Naziya and Jay have a distinct evil shade to their characteristics and manage to evoke the exact opposite emotions once the reader realizes the extent of their doings in an adolescent world The cricket scene and quiz are so wonderfully done by the author that it seems like a live scene is playing in front of your eyes And emotions not just mean the dark, depressing Devdas types but also include well constructed humour and drama Try as you may, you can t get the lonely boy on the bench scene out of your mind It is one of the most tragically haunting scenes I have read in a romance book Very well written However, some dialogues sound really filmy and the author only reinforces the belief that teenagers are hard core movie buffs who aspire to be in the shoes of their favourite actors It can actually be made into an interesting movie with a bit of editing in the script as some scenes are your typical Bollywood masala types Fighting sequences and the deliciously rhyming song that Rahul sings for Seema on the annual day are other highlights of this loveable adolescent tale The good part however is that though the story talks of first love and conjures up teenage protagonists, it does not limit itself to the same target audience due to the fact that the author has used multiple POVs quite efficiently The teenage drama coupled with a very interesting climax that comes out brilliantly because of the way the author has built up the story, make this book a true love saga Coming from a first time writer, it is apparent that there was a lot of self influence going into the story yet this book is a gem though there was room for improvement in editing and hopefully, they will be corrected in the next edition The book should strike a chord with people who cherish their first love and have ever passed through the funny stage of life called adolescence Slow to pick up but a fiery tale, intense with emotions and filled with enjoyment, this book is a must read for die hard romantics and all other readers in general Uread and Flipkart are offering author signed copies of this book, if you cherish a well written, emotionally charged love story then go for it

    FIRST OF ALL Throwing excellent vocabulary to re phrase sentences doesn t deepen emotions, it just further complicates the subjective matter Plus Points A bit different from regular Ekta Kapoor drama script 2.0 5.o for the plot Other plus ones I am still thinking Drawbacks I am accurately feeling like a football kicked back and forth between a love struck loony s memories overruling his present I am sounding too harsh heartless but existing conversations in this one are to be blamed Hadn t he failed to cement the bricks of his love with trust color them with security.I am reviving my material technology class And when at exact moments I muster up myself for trying even hard to comprehend it BOLLYWOOD strikes in Rahul naam toh sunaa hi hogaa Nahi, bhai nahi sunn nah I can t figure out what with kids nowadays I am dumb struck when my thirteen year old cousin is whining that he isn t able to give time to his LOVE More exploding my frustration levels our male protagonist is interested in knowing where female protagonist bought her dress, Where did you buy it from I stupidly asked and even stupidly, answered it on my own Nakhuda mohalla or Bhendi bazaar Too many unnecessary details are overloaded with long subtle descriptions which make you feel it s obstinate Dragging myself word by word I am literally thankful that it ended.

    This book was a waste of my time Voting this book in all the lists under different user names won t make it an international hit, I m sorry This author has no idea how Americans talk and I was having second hand embarrassment for him while reading some of the dialogues Seriously, how many people in Philadelphia use the word bloke unless they are doing some harry potter role playing of course.

    Love is a mysterious feeling have you not felt it play hideand seek with you too It hides beneath anger at times, evenfear or hatred, its less extreme cousins At other times, it openlyflaunts itself through that extra glint in the eyes, the accelerationof heartbeats and so many other such minuscule things whichassume humungous proportions when it comes to this four letterword In its nascent stage, love is shy, cowardly and dormant Butwhen it awakes, it has the power to rewrite destiny, to destroy allin its path and to overcome obstacles against all odds Rarely doeslove transcend certain boundaries created by the human mind andsociety in general Such love becomes an obsession, a double edgedsword that could doom the lover or a tight noose that binds breathsof lovers with it It is when this godly feeling takes a demonic formthat there is no escape it extinguishes all rationality and logic anddrowns the surroundings in a melancholic blue Things supportiveearlier, now suddenly seem hostile and the world seems to start andend at your lover s feet Truly, Madly, Deeply is one such story of a love that grew beyondproportions, transcended boundaries and resided in an enigmaticheart which had no words to describe what it felt to be throttledwith love As all other feelings, love is subjective too Whatever yourinstinct for this story be, I am sure that you will remember thisstory for a lifetime For it could have been your story It could havebeen mine.And what makes me so sure What could I possibly promise youin this book Three hundred odd pages full of unadulterated love A journey into the most extreme emotions of a heart A flashbackdown memory lane A ride over the nuances of complex teenagebehaviour Or a hope of falling in love again Honestly, I don t know Every expression of art is read differentlyby the one who reads and appreciates it But yes, the book hassomething in it for everyone All those who have ever passed throughthe turbulent teens or ever cherished their first love which all of ushave at some stage or the other will connect with the story Theycan form opinions praise, criticise or ridicule and then forget it but for the author, the creator of it all, the first book is a memorabletool of self discovery.Most people talk of an author s book as his child, composed ofhis blood and sweat, a product of the semen of endless dedicationand resolute determination In that sense, the child does have hisparents DNA So yes, the book has a part of the author somewhere,either hidden or easily visible to people who know the author Andthis all the applies to the first book Truly, Madly, Deeply is a mix of fact and fiction where dominanttraits of certain characters have been drawn from people I knew inthe past and my own memories of my school days.I just changed the surroundings a bit and did all the things thatfiction writers do, to make it pleasant and readable Andthat is the adjective I would like to leave you with as it is the readerwho decides everything, from the success of the story to that ofthe author And I am indeed blessed to have you as my reader

    This book will surely challenge the fact that men don t cry Taking the fact that the protagonist is a young male of about seventeen and combining it with another fact that I shamelessly shed tears as I read this one, I can safely bet on my first statement.Where romance is often thought of as girlish and combined with chick lit, the author has delivered a rare diamond in this area Very few books have the ability to play with time, not just in the sense that you lose track of all time when you read them but also the fact that they transport you to your past and give hope for a better future Truly, Madly, Deeply memoirs of a broken heart s first love is one such gem It is an unforgettable story of the protagonist, Rahul who is recovering from a broken heart in Philadelphia, the cause of which is back home in India But the question to be asked is, is he really recovering or all this a farce The book explores teenage romance which transcends across borders and horizons and love that grows beyond itself to culminate into something an obsession Childish events like quiz competitions, cricket matches, ego clashes, rebel fights, etc may sound boring but credit to the author, for handling them so beautifully and aptly so as the novel is targeted at young adults Crisp prose combined with wonderful poetry in parts and pieces has an alluring effect on the reader s senses and manages to draw you in the scheme of things.The author, Faraaz Kazi does justice to the story and we can easily imagine he has a personal connect with the book Great cover, awesome imagery and appropriate characterization set this book apart from the rest The topic has been delicately but expertly handled by the author, who gives us no room for complaints Yes, there are some pagination errors but I don t think one can blame the author for that All in all, a touching read that will surely make you fetch the tissues and recollect your first love

    I m up to Page 28 now Every once in a while, when I m feeling lazy about rewrites, I whip out this book to reassure myself that India needs me This book should NOT be a popular representative of Indian English genre fiction Seriously, I had a friend in law school who used to write like this He had no idea of the rules governing grammar, let alone those required to write fiction His idea of a good paper was to string together a bunch of multi syllabic words with no cohesion and no integrity of text Some unsolicited advice to Indian authors If your language skills aren t strong, and you ve never met any American people, it might be a good idea not to set your book in the US Seeing an American spouting Indian English dialogue is just ludicrous And just what kind of race is Anglo American, anyway I ve never heard of it before

    After coming off the back of epic love stories such as Diana Gabaldon s Outlander series, Jennifer Donnelly s superb The Tea Rose and her breathtaking follow up The Winter Rose , and my all time favourite The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons, the fact that this book is absolutely annihilating everything in its wake in the polling section of Goodreads, I just had to purchase this as soon as my Kindle arrived For those who are as curious as I was save your money Clearly there has been a very aggressive campaign for it to be rated so highly, and from what I can see, there s some bully boy tactics going on towards those who don t rate it highly Sorry I don t stand for that, and to those responsible don t bother soliciting my review either because I won t respond and I won t be changing it If you want to read an outstanding Eastern Love Story, read Khaled Hosseini s A Thousand Splendid Suns instead.

    Truly, Madly, Deeply is a book about first loves and obsessions.In his debut novel, Faraaz Kazi tells a beautiful story about two teenage lovers Rahul, and Seema, and their touching and tragic love story From the onset, I thought this was one of your typical love stories where a girl and guy fall in love in school and end up together forever in the island of dreams because everyone is too perfect which was reinforced by the fact that both main characters were described as very beautiful and intelligent and with beauty that just refuses to fade away no matter how beaten down they get but I was happy to be proved wrong Yes, this is your teenage romance novel But no, this is definitely not your cliched love is a cure all novel that looks oddly like a bollywood film story The story is quite refreshing in its story line and particularly in its conclusion, which I really enjoyed The story it tells is in a sense very easy to identify with, especially as a high school student, and though both the cases of the main characters might seem slightly over the top, I personally find it a very likely and plausible story The characters are eventually quite well written, especially Rahul, who tells this story and is as a consequence much human and likeable compared to Seema, whom we mostly see from the point of view of someone who adores her and thus comes across as slightly insufferable I like how the house struggles and personal rivalries come in the middle of their relationship, with two such strong personalities as the author shows I also loved the minor characters, from Jai to Sahil, most of whom were nicely shown and portrayed, and thus added depth to the story The writing style was crisp and direct, I liked the use of non linear structure and different point of views to tell the story, it added some spice to a book that might otherwise have been slightly bland The use of poetry abundantly in the narrative was probably uncharacteristic but really helped break the monotony of having one character mostly narrate his story I like how the story gives you a sense of wanting to know , which is exactly how most teenage relationships end Its particularly well written in the sense that it can be understood and yet has depth, which is probably really ideal for its target audience Final thoughts A beautiful, layered story of a teenage love turning into an obsession Worth a read if you like the concept.

    I thought the book Truly, Madly, Deeply was a great read I loved it for it s innocence and pure emotions It is a must read for every Indian who loves to read A little reference here and there to Bollywood films and music makes it all the fun Rahul and Seema make a lovely couple The book took me back to my school days It makes you realize not only the power of love, but also that of memories something that will remain with us forever, even when the world backs out The lines from poems and shayaris add a beautiful, romantic touch The brilliant quotes by Rochefoucauld are worth jotting down in your personal diary I would most definitely recommend this book to one and all The experience for me was like watching a movie, but of course, a book speaks much louder and much clearer than a movie One can easily relate to all the incidents that take place in the book, be it the ones with friends, love or even our families and especially our rather interesting Indian households Hats off to Faraaz Kazi for writing this book It is a job well done and I am looking forward to reading the many books that I hope and wish he will write.
