Book Summary of Of Course I Love You ! : Till I Find Someone Better
Of course I love you…, is a story set in Delhi, during the years 2006-2008 that revolves around colleges, nightclubs, relationships and friendships. It’s about a young college going guy – Debashish Roy.
Debashish Roy, is as his name suggests, is ordinary. What’s not though is his enviable interminably long list of girls he had managed to date and taken to bed amongst other things. Things are going fine until one day, Avantika, a girl so beautiful that you would have a tendency to stab yourself back to reality, walks into his life and wrests away everything he has. As his relationship with her gets steamier and deeper, everything else in his life gets on a fast track to one direction. Down.
Of Course I Love You…Till I Find Someone Better takes a dark and a hilarious view on modern day relationships in colleges. Narrated in Debashish Roys’ unsure, confused and testosterone induced voice, it takes a jibe at college time romances.
As Deb’s philandering days come to an end with Avantika who herself two times him, he sees everything from being hunted and followed around the city, getting kicked out his college placements, Deb is tested in every which way possible….only to get dumped for a reason which is unfathomable even outside the realms of reality.
As Avantika and his luck desert him, he lands up with a job in his father’s previous firm, a government office amongst some people who weren’t his father’s best friends and makes friends with Amit, the genius of the office, who was yet to have his first conversation with a girl, as he waits for his life to sort out. And for Avantika to come back…..
