Not every story culminates into a happy ending. Not every story finds an end in the first place. And that’s okay. Stories are meant to be weaved, lived, and cherished. Stories are meant to stay in our hearts as memories.

Towards the Last Wish by Drishti Dasgupta is a moving tale of unconditional love, heartbreak, hope, and a wish. A wish that becomes the reason for a man to cross all the setbacks and reach a remote village near PoK. A wish that brings together stranded humans who once loved each other. A wish that reunites people, gives them closure, proves the invincible power of love, and marks the evolution of love and relationships.

Yes, love can happen again. Because it is an energy that never destroys but simply transforms itself.

The three key characters in the book are Aahana, Saksham, and Aabir. Each one of them has a void within. Love fills it. While love stays at the forefront, brokenness finds them stealthily. This wreckage cost them their love but it also tests their love.

Towards the Last Wish examines the human relationships, with themselves and others, to create an impact on its readers. It follows the blossoming of relationships to express what it takes to feel the powerful emotions and be consumed by them. It speaks of pure love but it also speaks of love that is transient. It also speaks of love that remains. A love that we ought to have for ourselves.

While the story of this book was not entirely fresh, I still found myself reading it page after page. It was indeed a joy ride to go through multiple equations and see our characters growing into a better version of themselves. I personally loved Saksham for how wonderfully he takes all the odds in his stride and moves forward. While I appreciate Aahana for her strength, I went on disliking Aabir. I guess the flaws of the characters made them human which is amazing.

The writing is pretty simple and the narrative is easy flowing. For the most part, conversations occupy the stage and that makes reading the book easy and interesting. I did find the plot dramatic and predictable but the execution was done fairly well. It would be an ideal read for beginners and those who love romance novels.

My rating: 4/ 5
