Book Review - The Journey of getting the Girl of my Dreams

Recently, I have reduced the number of books under romance drama from my reading list. But few book covers can force you to think twice. The Journey of getting the Girl of my Dreams by Rohit Chawhan is one such book. Along with catchy cover and title, the length of the book was also a major factor. A novella which can easily remind your Chetan Bhagat, Ravinder Singh or Durjoy Datta's books.

Book Blurb
An ordinary man, an extraordinary journey of love……
Meeting Ashish on the flight to New York was a chance encounter for Rohit. Romantic, emotional and sincere, this is Ashish’s incredible story of getting the girl of his dreams. Ashish and Kriti’s love story starts with a bang but fizzles out only to come blazing back again. How does this happen? The story kept Rohit hooked – am sure you will be too.
Talking about the story, main protagonist of the story is Ashish. As the title suggests, it is the story of how he got Kriti, the girl of his dream. Being a mediocre student, Ashish did not having very high expectation from his studies. He was interested in pursuing his passion for cooking. He wanted to become a renown chef. During his 12th, he met Kriti one of the most famous and beautiful girls of his school. He fell in  love, which was one sided. His heart was broke when Kriti went to Germany for higher studies. During the same time, he had a big argument with his dad about his future. Akash left home in pursuit of his dreams along with a hope to get Kriti back into his life. His life was full of ups and downs which will keep you engaged till the last page.

Unlike other love-stories which are concentrated towards emotional drama, this one is focused towards Ashish dream. Every sad or emotional part was closely followed by some good quotes or dialogue, which made sure that book wouldn't fall into drama category. A novella usually gives lesser chance to authors to portray characters, but Rohit was able to do his job well with Ashish and Kriti.
