Book Review – Being in Love – Half Fiction Series

Fiction is one genre one would normally reserve to read on an easy or tiring day to relax, and I was initially thinking what would Half Fiction series would contain. Maybe the author’s experiences are laden with some stories or stories peppered with the author’s experiences. So I decided to find that out and picked up this book for my review.

Review of Being in Love – Half Fiction Series:

As the name series indicates, this is not just one long story but actually divided into 26 short stories. Interestingly, all these stories are intertwined, and the way the author introduces the main protagonists using the missing person’s announcements at a fair is innovative and makes us understand the pain of Rahul (our hero) and how he misses the heroine.

Though the pace is a little slow to my liking, the breakups, love, and the sequences between the characters have been described well. So the reader can feel the pain of the main protagonists.


The author just doesn’t stop himself with the story, but he really digs deep into the psychology of love and explains the different behaviors of the lovers at different points of time in the journey called love.


Some of the analogies he has given in the book ran dry on me, and though it made me smile, I felt like some other analogy could be used. The same goes for Shayaris. A few of them are really the best, but a few didn’t gel well.
