On the front cover there is a name “ If It’s Not Forever” and names of authors with picture of Delhi High Court . Colour of front cover is light yellow. On back cover there is short idea for reader to know what is book about with pictures of other best sellers of authors. Title of the book is very interesting “If it’s not forever...it’s not love”. Really it was love forever even after facing so many difficulties love never died.
Names of places , landmarks and people have been changed. It is very nice suspense love story. There is mixture of emotions. Author has made the story very suspicious. In every part there is new thing to know. It is author’s real story which happened with him. Author has showed humanity in finding related people after he got a diary in Chandani chowk blast. Generally people don’t show humanity and no person would have bothered to take the diary so seriously. It is story inside a story. Story of true love, dedication and passion for a girl. Story ending is very unexpected. Whatever predictions are made in beginning changes in the end of the story. Author could find a end but it was unexpected ending. On 42 page “The writing is ornate , slow and deliberated” is repeated line. On page 62 “bought”. It should be “thought”. On page 65 “Three days of a heady concoction of alcohol, love and lust!’. I don’t agree to this. Goa has natural scenary and many more interesting things. Looking at Goa as just a place of alcohol, love and lust is not correct. Author has made use of nice similies and phrases to make sentences interesting such as “Avantika asks as she dusts her face with make up”. “Before they can release me”. “I am sure she added them after I told her that I wanted to read diary”.
After reading this I started to believe each every second of life is very precious . Terror attacks , blasts are disasters which can happen at any place and people just lose their lives and closed ones are left alone. We should always express love and gratitude towards a person whom we love. Otherwise if we don’t tell and keep it with ourself we later regret for not expressing it at right time. With all this we should also be alert of such man made disasters which separate us from our closed ones. Author gives us a very good lesson of humanity and friendship and love.
