Oops! I fell in love: By Harsh Snehanshu

Today I finished this novel, “Oops! I fell in love” by Harsh Snehanshu. Harsh Snehanshu is an IITian (Delhi), and this is his debut novel.

Thankfully, this novel is nothing to do with IIT. It’s just the background of the hero. It is a simple love story of Kanav, an IITian and a very shy and reserved guy and Tanya, an extremely beautiful, normal college going girl.

They get separated from each other after their first date, due to some unfavorable circumstances. But, true love won’t allow the fate to play its bad joke. The end is indeed somewhat unpredictable.

Some situations & conversations between the protagonists are interesting. Especially, some romantic encounters (Of their first and last date) are very interesting as they are not at all romantic but very funny, funny enough to burst into laughter. But sometimes, fun barged in the emotional situations which suppressed the sentiment and pain. 

Writing style of the author reflects his novice standing. The narration seems a bit immature (like “The task of choosing between two utterly difficult words – yes and no both having one vowel each. She finally chose the one with more consonants and “Neetika turned to the other side and tried to impose discipline on her tear gland, etc.).  

Overall, the novel is an average, humorous read. You can give it a read if you like light reads.
