#BookReview: Unns The Captivation




"Of course you know about the seven stages of love, but have you ever lived them?"

Unns The Captivation is the second book by the author of 
Finders Keepers SAPAN SAXENA. The book is a romance thriller released on 12th March 2017 by Inspire India Publishers. The cover page of the book is very simple in black and  white colour with a blue rose which plays an important role in the story. The cover design is by Ajitabha Bose.

Unns The Captivation is a story of two people Atharva Rathod and Meher Qasim. The book is divided in three parts.Firstly, when Atharva and Meher fell in love in their adolescence in school, but broke up when Meher's parents discovered her relationship with Atharva. Secondly, after fifteen years both meet each other in Germany where Atharva was on a mission,but in the last fifteen years he was not able to forget her. Both were dealing with their own set of demons. And  lastly, when both of them meet each other again in the USA. 

The story is very realistic and gripping written in a very simple language. While reading the book one can easily visualize the happenings and it can be felt as if one is watching a movie. The first part of the story is a bit boring dealing with adolescent love in school but as the story progresses it gets a grip. The characters should have been described a bit more in depth but the emotions of the characters can be felt easily. The author has explained the different stages of love very nicely and an interesting fact is that the chapters are titled with the names of the seven stages of love. I liked how author switches between  Atharva reading his diary and the present. The book is full of twists, turns, thrill, suspense and love and has taught me that true love cannot be forgotten.
Overall, the book is a page turner and can be read in one sitting. I recommend this book to those who are interested in reading romance with some thrill.
