"Happiness is rising in love" - Guru with Guitar by Vikrmn

"Happiness is rising in love..." - Guru with Guitar by Vikrmn was the last book of 2015, which I finished on 31st December evening.

Though it took more than 1 month to start this book after I received, but I finished the book in 3-4 sitting. Before I started review-reading, I rarely read novel based on only love story, GWG was one of the first book in romance genre. Well book was not only about love story, along with sweet love story between Viktor and Kim, author had maintained struggle of Viktor from being corporate person to author and music healer.

Books starts with Viktor, us based financial professional, who thinks he life is completely engulfed in professional world. His creative mind always keeps him uneasy about boring life. Then he met Kim and she inspired him to chase his dreams. During this phase they fall in love or in author's word 'They rise in love'. But after Viktor's first book release things become difficult. One fine day Kim asked Viktor to leave her and to break their relationship. Story became somewhat so called "drama" and comes on predictable-normal-Bollywood style story track.

Book cover of the edition we read was more appealing than older one. The best part of the book is wonderful quotes that Vikramn has used at various point of the story. One full star for quotations, and remaining for story and characters.
