My Review -

If we ever meet again, I shall take her back to the start is a debut book by Shabaz Qazi. The genre is fiction, and plot based on an imperfect love story. The cover page gives a general idea about the hospital and the distance between the characters. It goes fine with the title and story-line. 

The main characters are Rehan Siddiqui, a law intern in London. Naina Rai a law student lives in Delhi. Rehan was Naina's senior, and both meet at the law school. For Rehan, it was love at first sight, but for Naina, Rehan is just a friend (so-called brother). Rehan leaves India but visits continuously for Naina's sake which she never appreciates. The story revolves around Rehan's infatuation for Naina which somehow turned into an obsession, and change Rehan into a whole new person. 

According to Rehan, love only happens once not twice and thrice. But Naina never felt any need of falling in love with anybody. She's one of those girls who blocked every boy who propose to them. While Rehan deals these things with maturity and keeps in touch with her ex-girlfriend Saira. They have different personalities and temperament which clashes most of the time. In turn of events, when Rehan confessed his love, Naina felt betrayed which mangles their relationship forever. 

The story amazes me from the starting point. Shabaz Qazi includes quotes of different personalities at the end of each chapter. The twist and turns are well devised. But the characters are one-dimensional. The author didn't do justice with other characters, especially the female protagonist. Rehan's character over-shadows others. Few paragraphs (two to be precise) are repetitive. The language is simple and error-free. It's a short read, but as a reader, I wanted more. The narration is craggy and lopsided. But still, I feel a connection with Rehan and Naina's conundrum relationship. 

The author did well and made me laugh at a few places. I even felt that I read a genuine love story. Sometimes, I hate Rehan's character and felt pity for Naina's. The story is thought-provoking and hooked me at the end. This book is a tic-o-treat for newbies and light shady romance lover. I would recommend this book and hope to read a sequel of this one someday.
