Book-Review: He loves me not by Vrushali Telang

Recently, I finished reading He Loves Me Not by Vrushali Telang. It's her second book (Her first book was 'Can't Die for Size Zero')

'He Loves Me Not' tells about the life of childhood sweethearts, Jimmy Cooper and Mehroo. Mehroo is a glass painter and is quite satisfied with her life. While she is actually in love with Jimmy (Envisages herself as future Mrs Jimmy Cooper), for Jimmy this relationship is just timepass or you can say love of convenience.

Actually, Jimmy doesn't care for any relationship in his life. He just dreams to be a big star and while desperately chasing his dreams, he lands himself in the marsh of complications and eventually in very troublesome situations.

How will he get out of the complete mess? What about his dreamsWhat's the destination of Mehroo's true, selfless love? To know the complete story you'll have to read the book.

The book is entertaining. I found the start a bit slow and too descriptive but as the story progresses, it becomes engrossing.

The book is written in multiple points of view and  I think description of some characters are insignificant. Like I did not find any need of going into Ritu's life (From her husband's point of view). There are many writing errors. Usage of wrong words, typos and repetitive words (I hope it gets corrected in the next editions)

The characters and situations are well defined. And the book conveys some good, light messages and facts about life.

Overall, for me, it was a nice read especially the second half. If you like to read a light read, you can pick this book.

I received this book from the publisher Random House India (Random Reads) in exchange of an honest review. Thanks!
