20661129



“Does love manage to find a way, even when all illusions fade? Where does the journey end?”

It's No Longer A Dream is the second book by the bestselling author of In course of true love by Sanjeev Ranjan published by Srishti Publishers. The cover page of the book is very refreshing in green colour having two human faces , bonfire and two chairs which is very much apt with the story.

It's no longer a dream is a story that revolves around Akshat Diwan who lives a very luxurious life having a palatial mansion, luxurious cars, wealth but not peace. He has a dwindling love life and is seeking for solitude. The book is divided into three parts. Part one of the book introduces the readers to Akshat. His life, his parents and his girlfriend Naina. Part two deals with Akshat meeting Randhir on  a train journey and he tells Akshat about  his arranged marriage with Radhika. How he met her, fell in love. The third part brings back Akshat to his home and  he realizes the true meaning of love.

This is a very sensitive book written by the author. The way he has portrayed the human emotions is mind blowing. It's a very beautifully written book having a simple story line. The relationship between Randhir and Radhika is very sweet and heart touching. The book is an emotional read and will leave you teary eyed. Various instances will also make the reader laugh. The way author switches from present to flashback is really nice.This book is a roller coaster ride .

Overall, its a  very gripping, sweet, simple and an emotional book making you weep but will also teach one not to take our loved one's for granted. The book can be finished easily in a sitting. Those who are really interested in reading a beautiful love story then pick this one.
