#BookReview : Romeo Juliet & Hitler by Rohan Gautam

On the jacket:


What happens when a girl meets a boy on a train journey and they eventually fall in love? A new Romeo and Juliet are born and what happens when their families find out? Enter Hitler. Rohan bumps into Shreya perchance and dreams of spending a lifetime with her. Love is in the air, the breeze seems colder, the stars shine brighter and life seems rosier but can it last forever? Like all other love stories, this one is also horrifying and hilarious in bits. As Rohan meanders through his feelings, travels across cities, gets thrown behind bars by pot-bellied policemen and is almost beaten in his own life and career, he still has to face the biggest test of all, facing Shreya's Hitler brother.Will he be able to win him over or will Hitler put brakes on their love? Romeo, Juliet & Hitler is a story of young love coming face to face with the grown up world and its notions of right and wrong. Will this set of Romeo and Juliet share the same fate as the originals or will they manage to win over all odds? Let's find out!

Review:

Romeo Juliet & Hitler by Rohan Gautam is another love story where boy meets girl, both fall in love and then steps in a villain. This is a story of Rohan who meets Shreya in a train and they fall on love. And then unfolds a long queue of events as do in all love stories, some nice, some not so nice.

The third character in the book is hitler, who actually turned out to be someone else and not the one I expected to be. Despite the title of the book mentioning the hitler, one would have thought this too would have been one of the central characters. But this character arrives in the plot for short duration and not for very long. The end is a bit hilarious but otherwise there isn't anything very new in the plot.

A nice, quick read, specially if you are travelling.

Rating: ***/5
