‘Love is Vodka’ a shot aint enough,very lovely name with a classy cover.It beguiled my eyes at the very first look itself as it has a girlie coloured cover ‘pink’.
As the blurb goes-‘ If love is all about freedom and honest expression then how can one associate it with loyalty?
Being a love child; Moon, the protagonist is
anything but a conventional teen. With a leading
TV news anchor as her mother, an aspiring
entrepreneur as her boy friend, the word LOVE
baffles her. The whole idea of having one partner
and love being eternal is beyond her comprehension.
Life turns upside down when she falls for the
CEO, who happens to be her mother’s boyfriend
too. Destiny further complicates things by
blessing her with a big time modelling
assignment and she becomes famous and
A war starts waging between her head & heart
on a lot of issues exposing her to various forms
of love online & offline.
Will she decipher the true meaning of love?
Embark on an exhilarating rendezvous with Moon
and discover love like never before.’
Moon is the protagonist of the story,a teenage girl whose love life dangled with three guys-Ash,her first boyfriend,D(her mother’s boyfriend) and atlast her heart fell for Gautam who didnt give a puff to her. The last line of the book-‘It took me so many shots of vodka to find him-my true love’ justifies with the title and so with the plot.To know what true love is ,she has gone through some downfall relationships and she discovered the definition of true love when she fell for Gautam.I liked how author came up with such an enchanting title and tagline.
Not for a single moment, I thought that it was written by a male writer.The way author has potrayed the character of Moon and the way she acts and feels truely depicts a girl’s nature. Lacy poems are used to festoon the story which are very well articulated and well tuned to the story. Writing style is impressing with a good command over language.
Last 50 pages gave me vibes as if I was reading Chetan Bhagat’s novel dealing with a new issue and crowned with the perfect end where an evil facet of government has been shown and it has to be come to an end.But it didnt end on that note rather it ended on making Moon realize the value of relationships.
This book didnt bore me,not even for a single second.Actually,I was enjoying reading it.Though the plot was simple and nothing new was there but it held my attention till the end.An entertaining read.
