College romances, friendships, and how people transform when they move out of the cocoon of security that is the life in school and college has been the subject of many books in recent times. Reading these books, therefore, is about how well an author can present his ideas across for the world to accept them, without going big on the comparisons. Another Love Story is a decent attempt at presenting the old with a whiff of the new.
The title Another Love Story gives you an idea of expecting something that is different from the usual. Which is why I wanted to give this book a try. The reality isn’t what you’ve expected but it doesn’t disappoint you, which acts as a huge plus point in favor of the overall attributes of the book.
The characters aren’t complicated at all, easy to read about and identify with. The story has its moments of humor, another part done well. In all, this one’s a regular story with regular people and not-so-regular situations. But it does manage to keep a reader gripped, if for nothing else then just for its sheer simplicity.
The downside -the book has been poorly edited. Language and grammar sanity has been ignored, which takes away from the reading experience, more so if you are a grammar nazi.
I give this book a 2/5. I’d have given it a 3 or maybe even 4 had the editing been taken care of.

Blurb: The hardest day in an Engineering student’s life is not the day he gets his result. It’s the day he gets judged – Placement Day. Everything he has learnt and ignored throughout his four years of being in college comes back one final time to haunt him. But what if he had bigger problems that were linked to it? What if the same thing that helped him get to where he was, was keeping him from getting to where he wanted to go? Long story short, he fell in love.
About the author: After writing his first poem at the age of 14, the author Arjun Premkumar has had a wonderful journey. He began with pieces of writing pertaining just to love and later ventured into other genres. With a flair for entertaining people, he moved into speaking and the response was just as strong as it was for his writing. He is an engineer by qualification and dreams of becoming a writer by profession. He also has this weird affinity to the number three, being born on the third day of the month. Somewhere between his tenth short story and his thirtieth poem, he had this sudden urge to write something bigger. So, he began writing. With all his experience with relationships and heart-breaks, he turned to writing Another Love Story.
Review: Another love story is a journey of a young writer as he describes his college life. The outstanding writing skills describing the conversation and actions around him are worth mentioning. Author talks about beautiful college life with characters – Vishal, Karthik and Swetha. It talks about their college life and value of true friendship and love. While reading it was easy to know exactly what he (the author) was feeling. His thoughts are flowed well and moved the book along nicely. Arjun’s narrative voice is astonishing. I would definitely recommend this book to other readers.
