Arjun is an incredibly nice guy who believes in true love and is waiting for it with open arms. He falls in love, not once or twice, but thrice. And every single time, happiness – like the girls he fell for – comes very close to him before pushing him away. His only pillar of strength in all his moments of grief and dejection is his childhood friend Anjali. Dejected by the games played by girls and fate, he leaves Hyderabad for Bangalore and ends up meeting Krish, an irresistible flirt.

Krish understands Arjun’s predicament, pacifies him with his words and enlightens him about the most complicated species ever created by God – Women. And then, Arjun’s life changes forever. Will Arjun find the one he has been waiting for, or will he end up becoming a flirt? Will he ever taste lasting happiness? Join Arjun as he tries to figure out women and discovers the meaning of love, lust and life… all in his journey of Finding Juliet.

My Take

Finding Juliet written by Toffee (a delicious name I must say!) is the book that all Romeos out there should read this Valentine’s Day to gain some gyaan on how to find their perfect Juliet.

It is a simple story of how the protagonist finds his true love after facing constant disappointments and rejection. The author has chosen an already beaten to death story, but the presentation and flow of the story is excellent. The language is lucid and simple. The characters are well drawn out and have a solid presence in the story.

And of course, the author has incorporated all those Facebook and WhatsApp forwards that describe the nature of a girl(?). Overall, an okayish story and good for one time read. There isn’t nothing much exceptional or nail biting twists and turns in the story.

My Verdict: Finding Juliet is successful in some parts. 

My Rating: 3.5/5
