“Of course you know about the seven stages of love, but have you ever lived them?” Atharva Rathod and Meher Qasim. Lovebirds since adolescence. Bonded by love, separated by circumstances. They part ways only to meet again. But this time, he is on a secret mission… Are they in control of their own destiny, or it is their destiny which is making them dance to its tunes? Only time would answer, as Atharva and Meher unwillingly and unknowingly transcend the seven stages of love. A quintessential tale of love and romance marked beautifully by its own rustic old school charm.
“Sometimes, it’s worth living the dreams, tasks, hopes or ambitions of the people you love, however unjustifiable or stupid they may sound. Sometimes, it’s worth completing what they stood up for. That is the best gift you can give to the people you love.”
~ A quote from UNNS.
Before you tag UNNS – The Captivation to be yet another romantic tale, let me tell you this, IT IS DIFFERENT. UNNS tells you about Atharva and Mehar; a Hindu boy and a Muslim girl… their life of crossing paths, being together and saying goodbyes! Through them, the author tells readers about the seven stages of love – Hub (attraction), Unns (infatuation), Ishq (true love), Aqeedat (acceptance and appreciation), Ibadat (honoring/adoring your lover) , Junoon (craze or deep passion/obsession) and Maut (death) . The author takes you through them all with interesting set back of course!
The best part is its outstanding plot-line, the whole of the lead’s lifetime is put into use. The idea of seven stages of love and how it is depicted with relation to seasons makes it a beautiful and alluring read. I also found that it is suited to be tasteful for every type of readers. Some point on the way the drama will keep you on your toes, the RAW agent set back of Atharva pulls it out well adding new flavors to the story.
I personally was not impressed with the title of the book but when read and understood what it conveys it felt better. There are a few grammatical and typo errors but then nothing is perfect. The starting of the book might make you feel nothing different from the usual romance tale but further, it will give a good treat to a reader.
My rating for the book is 4/5 and would like to recommend it to all my readers. Grab your copy from Amazon
