BOOK REVIEW: Love Apptually by Pooja Nair


"Can real love ever blossom amidst a plethora of virtual chat apps and widgets? Can the mechanical swipes and eager clicks on the phone ever substitute the pleasures of a real-life chance encounter? For Aayushi, it all begins with an idle flickering message on her app's inbox, from a guy named Ayaan. This leads to an affair where the two discover a deep attraction for each other. However, Aayushi ends the relationship rather abruptly. Three years later, Aayushi unexpectedly bumps into Ayaan in her Singapore office. His changed behaviour perplexes her and she tries to find out if Ayaan had ever loved her the way she imagined love to be. She ends up uncovering revelations galore, and is finally led to a simple truth. Will this change her romantic notions forever or reaffirm her faith in love? "

I dont find anything interesting in this novel.

The author fails to entertain the readers,
the bo0k lacks humour and romantic elements
Only the starting chapters are written well, which grabs attention , after that it felt boring like a burden ,so i quit reading it

As it is clear from the blurb, the story revolves around Aayushi and Ayaan. Aayushi and Ayaan meet each other again after many years. Its strange to find .
How many years had it bee since they parted ways?What was their relationship all about really? Were they really in love that time? Why they forgotten even a single moment that they spend with each other?

Then he meet suddenly in the same company in which she was working with...does that mean he was a part of the company as well?

The book lacks something or the other, so i am disappointed by the author. 
I would give this book 3 out of 5 stars.
