Adhuri Prem Kahaniyan by Santosh Avvannavar

adhuri-prem-kahaniya-700x700Adhuri Prem Kahaniyan is a english non-fiction that collates real love stories sourced from life. As the title testifies, each story is incomplete and is told from the male point of view.

With numerous tales of love, lust, friendship and betrayal, one can see different shades of love and the twists and turns that contributes to its abrupt ending, bereft of a closure. Some stories are fun to read, while some had real pain and pathos hidden behind the narrative prose.

The language is colloquial with a lot of hindi and tamil words thrown in. And the whole book reads like a blog.

Plus Points – Man’s perspective about falling in love

Minus Points – Bad prose, typos and grammatical errors in almost every other line. I am sad about the fact that a book could be ruined by such bad editing and absolutely no proofreading.

Verdict – One time read if you don’t mind the errors.
