REVIEW:

Having previously read and thoroughly enjoyed Anurag Anand's Where the Rainbow Ends, I was really looking forward to reading Love on 3 Wheels, which turned out to be very interesting and enjoyable. 

The story of five very different people; in this book, we get into the heads of each of these characters from the point of view of the third person while at the same time, we follow the events that take place on December 28 and 29. The alternate character and story narration was well done. A narration like this can end up being confusing, but in Love on 3 Wheels, we get as much lead into the character as into the story itself, which was refreshing and riveting, because both were necessary to really understand everything. 

Speaking of the characters, we have Sargam, who is a decent and hardworking girl; Sharib, an auto driver who is very respectful; Abhigyan, doctor by profession who isn't what he appears to be; Ameena, who will do anything to get the man of her dreams fall for her like she has fallen for him; and finally Junaid, who will do anything- absolutely anything- for his mommy dearest. 

All the characters were developed and portrayed nicely. The best part was that each character was shown in such a way that it was both easy and difficult to both love and hate her/ him. Love on 3 Wheels interconnects the lives of these five characters in the most interesting way possible. Each of them is either at the right or wrong place at either the right or wrong time; it depends on perspective. 

Deep down, this book speaks about much more than just connecting threads. It takes up contemporary issues that makes one think if what happens with the characters is really what they deserve. It talks about karma and justice, making the story very meaningful. The only disappointment was what became of the character I was rooting for. While it did seem that some characters didn't get what they deserved, it all made sense nonetheless. 

Overall, hardly 160 pages long, Love on 3 Wheels is an entertaining, enjoyable and very interesting tale that intermingles the lives of five people and that was portrayed in a gripping way.

  1. Eeep! I love whenn characters and the story both are developed well. Sometimes one gets pushed back for the ther. I think the kind of stories that this book is trying to convey are very important and it's always interesting to see misfits interact or change each other's fate etc. Aw, shucks! I'm sorry your fav character didn't end at a place you wanted them to. I'm glad you enjoyed it as a whole though :) Lovely review, Sarika!
