Book Review: Loves Lost by Sourabh Mukherjee

Title: Loves Lost
Author: Sourabh Mukherjee
Format: Kindle
Genre: 57 pages
Genre: Fiction
Year: 2020
Rating: 4/5 stars

Saurabh Mukherjee's latest work 'Loves Lost' presents LOVE from multiple prespectives, where love is not all about caring the other person but also about remembering them, trying to preserve them and even hate them. This collection of five stories connects love with emotions not much talked about in popular narratives. The beauty of this work lies in the way the author has presented the story of five people from different age, sex and circumstances and their definition of love with the mastery of his writing. The book begins with the story called ' My Summer's with Nargis' which presents the fascination of a teenage boy for a girl and his desire to unite with her. The story portrays his penchant for preserving the aura and charm of Nargis through his paintings without her knowledge. The very fact that the story is written in first person narrative and the narrator is not given any name makes the story universal in its appeal. 

The second story 'Mine Forever' presents the life of a successful young entrepreneur named Sid and how in spite of achieving so much in his career he is suffering from a feeling of hollowness due to some unavoidable reasons.

'Memories of another Day' presents the story of a survivor who on one hand, is suffering from nightmares but on the other hand, has a deep rooted hatred for someone whom he used to love the most. The stories 'The Lies we tell Ourselves '  and ' Love Come Calling Again' presents Saanjh and Riya's discovery of their love.

Favourite Line- 'My heart would settle for nothing but that one look from Nargis, soothing the scorched terrains of my heart like the first rain of that elusive monsoon.'

Overall, it was a good experience going through the work. I give this book 4 stars and recommend it to those who prefers a light read.

Happy Reading
