Book Review - Love Will Follow: Why The Indian Marriage Is Burning

Love Will Follow: Why The Indian Marriage Is BurningLove Will Follow: Why The Indian Marriage Is Burning by Shaifali Sandhya
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Is this really a book? Merely binding a few pages with glue and thread and giving it a cardboard cover does not make it so. So is it really a book?
It read more like a final year Psychology report than a work of non-fiction. It does qualify as an account of what plagues the Indian marriage today but fails to rise above being precisely that, an account. It is a structured compilation of interviews, opinions and deductions, with lots of subjects, but no characters.

It is not entirely unfounded to expect works of non-fiction to invest in characters. They too tell stories - albeit real ones. In writing this book from a entirely diagnostic point of view, I think the author has erred in that the book fails to titillate the reader and evokes no empathy from him whatsoever. In trying to become simultaneously a 'book'-book and a psychology text, the author has truly fallen between two chairs.

  1. We have a business blog through which I offer certain goods and services.
    It is also a general-information blog, however.
    I am seeking to move it to a different blog host. I am aware that blogspot offers user-sponsored
    advertising, but what are the other free blogs that allow
    something similar to blogspot's adsense and/or user-sponsored advertising?.
