Synopsis : Love in Crazy Times is a tale of search for love and freedom, braving heart breaks, evil bosses and family pressure.

Amit is a daring middle class guy who chases both love and dream of starting his own business. He is faced with the hypocritical Indian society and the corrupt business class on his path. His victory is not easy and comes after a long trail of personal and professional setbacks.

Review: Love in Crazy Times is a story of Amit and his friends, narrated by Amit. The story is quite fast paced and gives a flavor of humour, emotions, romance, drama and learning.

The characters are well portrayed and described. At times, you’d find yourself relating someone you know with them.

A major part of the book talks about Amit’s quest for a girlfriend. While he falls in love many times, none of his ‘girlfriends’ reciprocate his feelings which gave him constant heart-breaks is believable. The story gives insights about today’s youth, their beliefs, attitude, struggles and dreams.

The story and narration in general are nice and quite well done considering its Gautam’s first work.

I have complaints only with the editing. The grammatical mistakes along the pages make you lose interest. Gautam, I think you should check it in your next releases.

In general, it’s a light read and if you can ignore the editing errors, it is fun 🙂
