Book title: The Things we do for Love
Author: Raunak Agarwal
Love is not just about being in a relationship, it’s much more than that…
What would you do if you were caught up in a love triangle, but without the love? What if this love that you keep seeking, never really left?
Rudra, who thinks that he has started developing feelings for Ruhani, is aghast when she chooses her best friend over him – simply because her best friend is jealous. Set out on a task to bring Ruhani to her senses, he decides to go all in for the only girl in his life.
But, when things go too far, and he finally gets a choice, will Rudra continue to be Ruhani’s savior? Or will he find his own happy ending?
Narrated by Rudra, The Things We Do for Love, first of a two-part romance, dramatizes his quest for companionship.
“The things we do for love” by Raunak Agarwal is a typical love story presented with a unique and improvised narration. The story is not offering anything new at all apart from the cliffhanger introduced at the end, particularly because this is a two-part novel. But I’m greatly impressed with the unique narration of the story. The author juggled words and the timeline of the story. The entire story is told from the point of view of Rudra, the protagonist. This gives the author the flexibility he needs to change the story to past, present, and future abruptly. When I first encountered this change of timeline, it was quite difficult to understand, but soon this became an interesting feature of the entire story. Apart from this, I liked the choice of words in the entire story. The author gives a feel of poetic touch from beginning to end. The occasional quotes included in the story are also very good. Basically, the author is trying to differentiate the two important bonds in everyone’s life, love and friendship. We may even get confused about one over others. If we join them together, it may work or maybe not, depending entirely on individuals.
Altogether it is a good romance read. You can pick it without any expectations and read without any hassles.
