Love Lasts Forever by Vikrant Khanna: A Review

Blurb: So you think your love can last forever…?
Get married!
Eighteen-year-old Ronit falls madly in love with Aisha the moment he meets her at his graduation day from a naval college. He believes he has found his perfect soul mate, and come what may, his love for her will last forever. Seven years later, he gets married to her. Big mistake! A week later, he completely hates her and believes she has turned into a devil.
But his perception about love and life change when he hears the poignant love story of Shekhar, his Captain, on a ship that later gets hijacked by the pirates of Somalia.
As they are left fighting for their lives; they confront if love truly can last
forever…? Or does it get too late?

Verdict: ‘Love Lasts Forever’ is the third novel of the bestselling author Vikrant Khanna. The name itself gives a feeling that this book is going to be a love story. Wasim Helal has done a great job by making the cover look catchy.

This story tell us how couples behave before marriage, when they first fall in love, when they roam around the city hand-in-hand and how couples behave after marriage, the first day after marriage, first meeting with relatives and the list goes on.

The book starts in a different note which will definitely make the readers turn the page. Unlike other love stories this story unfolds inside a ship which is passing through Somalia. As the story moves and the ship gets hijacked by the pirates, the story gets more interesting. The male protagonists falls for Aisha and marries her after seven years of continuous attempt just to find out the bitter sides of the marriage.

As the author starts to portray the regular arguments between the husband and wife, the story drops its speed. Readers may find the middle part of the book less interesting just because of the nagging situations and conversations between Ronit and Aisha. But the story of the captain has a bit different angle and as the story ends it will leave a smile on the readers face and a positive thought on readers mind about married life.

The most interesting thing about the book is the author’s narrating style. The author has narrated the whole story in a way by conversing with his readers and will make them laugh with his efficiently written one liners. But I felt the story line is weak and can be decorated in a better way. Overall this book is a nice read and a definite read for married men.

Final Words: The author has framed a quite interesting story to show his readers what happens after marriage and what they need to keep the relations going. The author have the capability to make his readers laugh even in the most difficult situation.
