Review: Can Love Happen Twice? by Ravinder Singh

Author: Ravinder Singh
Publisher: Penguin
ISBN: 978-0-143-41723-1
Year: 2011
Rating: ☆☆☆☆1/2

When Ravin first said ‘I love you . . .’ he meant it forever. The world has known this through Ravin’s bestselling novel, I Too Had a Love Story. But did Ravin’s story really end on the last page of that book?

On Valentine’s Day, a radio station in Chandigarh hosts a very special romantic chat show. Ravin and his three best friends are invited as guests to talk about Ravin’s love story. But surprisingly everyone apart from Ravin turns up. As the show goes live, there is only one question in every listener’s mind: what has happened to Ravin?

To answer this question the three friends begin reading from a handwritten copy of Ravin’s incomplete second book—the entire city listens breathlessly, unable to believe the revelations that follow.
This highly anticipated novel by Ravinder Singh is an emotional rollercoaster that bravely explores the highs and lows of love.

Review: When I first started reading this book, I was getting bored in the conversations of three friends with a scene which have been created in the story to give it a dramatic look but curiosity was to know the story Khushi (Character in the Book "I Too Had A Love Story) as it is sequel of that book. But I started getting involved in the story once the main story was started. Sometimes, plot of the scene have been elaborated in lengthy manner unnecessarily. The charm of the story comes when Ravin comes to know the mind set of Simar (another main character of book). The expectation, desire of a girl that almost every person faces in their life. Overall Book was worth reading for me as somehow it relates to the experience in life. one of the best remembering quote of the book which could not stop me writing here is "Wealth, Woman and Wine can make anything happen in this World".
