The Break-Up Clinic by Govind Sharma

I have read Dr Govind Sharma's first book "Anant Dot Com". His books were always a treat for readers. His expertise over writing a story within 150 pages is really amazing. Just like Anant Dot Com "The Break-up Clinic" is also a short and light read.

Book Blurb
Is the break-up killing you? The scariest three words for a person in love are: It is over. The rejection from a loved one can be the most painful experience in life.
Ajay, Karan and Nisha seek to end their lives as they are driven to despair by failed love relationships. After the near-fatal suicide attempts, the survivors are in the care of the Freudian Psychoanalyst Doctor Dev who works in a Break-up Clinic to accomplish his mission of providing succor to emotionally wounded persons.
Will Doctor Dev be able to help Ajay, Karan and Nisha to come out of the emotional quagmire and move on? The Break-Up Clinic makes an attempt to answer the question: Why do some people suffer so much in love?
The story of "The Break-up clinic" revolves around three main characters Ajay, Karan, and Nisha. They were dumped by their lovers. Failures in their love life made them depressed. They reached a point where they thought the suicide was the only option. Due to their mental condition and being suicide attempters, they were brought to the “break-up clinic”. During their treatment, their past got revealed to readers.

Break-up clinic is a place where suicide attempters were given special treatment. In the clinic, patients were being explained the psychodynamic basis of their behavior. Patients were persuaded how to choose a better partner for their romantic relationship in future. Apart from that, treatment also focuses on improvement of overall happiness level of an individual.

The storyline is perfectly fine but some technical words were used excessively. I think those terms should be explained with proper examples so that a layman can understand the context. If I have been given the meaning of those words, reading experience would have been even better. Overall it was a good read.
