Diary of a Whimsical Lover by Gaurav Sharma is an interesting love story that moves at its own pace, shunning away all the interpretations of the readers. It’s neither tragic nor intense…yet manages to be a riveting read!
The storyline is about Gaurav and Maya. The former is an introvert, trying to be something, and a writer. He likes Maya, the younger daughter of Mrs. Caul.
It all started when I first saw you at Mrs. Caul’s birthday party.
The novel explores the proposition of romance in life when an individual is busy managing their life and implementing priorities. No doubt both characters are sweet, intriguing, self-obsessed still highly likeable. They both were on the same wavelength but there was something unpredictable about Maya. The scene at the post card counter was hilarious, the guy buys a postcard to send her, but she refuses all scope for surprises.
Gaurav is mature and coping in the realistic world, he is receptive about her love but at the same time filled with trepidation…what if she turned it down.
Little did she know that for every beating my heart took when it failed at connecting with her, it got back up stronger. The fidelity I had for her didn’t fill my heart but made it ever bigger such that it constantly had some room for heartbreaks. I was getting better at fitting her rejections into my day.
Mostly the fate of one-sided or partial love stories is either rejected or accepted, however, the journey till that point is something that keeps readers hooked and engrossed.
To be noted, Gaurav’s presence of mind for noting surrounding is exceptional. The way he describes his walk through the jostling crowd on the sidewalks and streets, surely tells that he has supremacy in his narrative. The lover boy is introvert, one gets the hunch as soon as one dives in the story.
You will be amazed to see that life in Canada is not all cakewalk. Gaurav first as a student, then into job – his grim struggle for travelling and accommodation is finely captured.
Gaurav and Maya seem like in love. But can they testify it because both are struggling for job and career and a few more personal things. Gaurav lives in proximity…does it guarantee that they will come closer for lifetime.
The instincts of love are pure from Gaurav’s side. Will Maya reciprocate the same? So if it’s a love story, well then what’s that ‘Diary of a Whimsical Lover’? Find out yourself, better pick it up, it’s a fast-read on Kindle and paperback. It’s a novel with good content…chances are high that it becomes a runaway bestseller soon.
