Book Review: Unns- The Captivation

My Rating: 

Blurb from Goodreads:

"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 its 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. 

My Review:

Unns-The Captivation by Sapan Saxena is a "quintessential tale of love and romance". This is the story of Atharva Rathod and Meher Qasim. Atharva is a senior RAW agent and Meher is a businesswoman. Their love story begins in school and takes various turns and twists throughout the plot.

The book talks about seven stages of love which are explained beautifully in the novel. The author has seamlessly woven each stage into the plot as the story develops. The first 20-30 pages were difficult to get through and seemed unnecessary. It gives you an impression that the book is going to be about school romance but as the story moves forward, it gets exciting. You wait with bated breath as to what will happen next while they solve the cases.

The characters are well developed. Atharva comes across as a hopeful and optimistic person while Meher's character has several shades.  I liked how the author makes you go through so many emotions of love, hope, betrayal, and disappointment. The language is simple which makes it a breezy read. 

There are some loopholes due to which the story doesn't flow smoothly. In some parts, the events unfolded quite abruptly which was an impediment to the flow of the story.

 In a nutshell, pick up this book if you want to read a love story with a hint of mystery.
