Apr 28, Vinaya marked it as someday-i-ll-finish-this Shelves: I'm up to Page 28 now. Every once in a while, when I'm feeling lazy about rewrites, I whip out this book to reassure myself that India needs me. Seriously, I had a friend in law school who used to write like this.
He had no idea of the rules governing grammar, let alone those required to write fiction. His idea of a good paper was to string together a bunch of multi-syllabic words with no cohesion and no integrity I'm up to Page 28 now.
His idea of a good paper was to string together a bunch of multi-syllabic words with no cohesion and no integrity of text. Some unsolicited advice to Indian authors: If your language skills aren't strong, and you've never met any American people, it might be a good idea not to set your book in the US.
Seeing an American spouting Indian English dialogue is just ludicrous. And just what kind of race is Anglo-American, anyway? I've never heard of it before! View all 17 comments. Jan 18, Ismail Sheikh rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book will surely challenge the fact that men don't cry. Taking the fact that the protagonist is a young male of about seventeen and combining it with another fact that I shamelessly shed tears as I read this one, I can safely bet on my first statement.
Where romance is often thought of as girlish and combined with chick-lit, the author has delivered a rare diamond in this area. Very few books have the ability to play with time, not just in the sense that you lose track of all time when you r This book will surely challenge the fact that men don't cry.
Very few books have the ability to play with time, not just in the sense that you lose track of all time when you read them but also the fact that they transport you to your past and give hope for a better future. It is an unforgettable story of the protagonist, Rahul who is 'recovering' from a broken heart in Philadelphia, the cause of which is back home in India.
But the question to be asked is, is he really recovering or all this a farce? The book explores teenage romance which transcends across borders and horizons and love that grows beyond itself to culminate into something more an obsession?
Childish events like quiz competitions, cricket matches, ego clashes, rebel fights, etc. Crisp prose combined with wonderful poetry in parts and pieces has an alluring effect on the reader's senses and manages to draw you in the scheme of things. The author, Faraaz Kazi does justice to the story and we can easily imagine he has a personal connect with the book. Great cover, awesome imagery and appropriate characterization set this book apart from the rest.
The topic has been delicately but expertly handled by the author, who gives us no room for complaints. Yes, there are some pagination errors but I don't think one can blame the author for that.
All in all, a touching read that will surely make you fetch the tissues and recollect your first love! After coming off the back of epic love stories such as Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series, Jennifer Donnelly's superb 'The Tea Rose' and her breathtaking follow-up 'The Winter Rose', and my all time favourite 'The Bronze Horseman' by Paullina Simons, the fact that this book is absolutely annihilating everything in its wake in the polling section of Goodreads, I just had to purchase this as soon as my Kindle arrived For those who are as curious as I was - save your money.

In his debut novel, Faraaz Kazi tells a beautiful story about two teenage lovers: Rahul, and Seema, and their touching and tragic love story. From the onset, I thought this was one of your typical love stories where a girl and guy fall in love in school and end up together forever in the island of dreams because everyone is too perfect which was reinforced by the fact that both main characters were described as very beautiful and i Truly, Madly, Deeply is a book about first loves and obsessions.
From the onset, I thought this was one of your typical love stories where a girl and guy fall in love in school and end up together forever in the island of dreams because everyone is too perfect which was reinforced by the fact that both main characters were described as very beautiful and intelligent and with beauty that just refuses to fade away no matter how beaten-down they get but I was happy to be proved wrong.
Yes, this is your teenage romance novel. But no, this is definitely not your cliched 'love is a cure-all' novel that looks oddly like a bollywood film story.
The story is quite refreshing in its story-line and particularly in its conclusion, which I really enjoyed. The story it tells is in a sense very easy to identify with, especially as a high school student, and though both the cases of the main characters might seem slightly over-the-top, I personally find it a very likely and plausible story.
The characters are eventually quite well-written, especially Rahul, who tells this story and is as a consequence much more human and likeable compared to Seema, whom we mostly see from the point-of-view of someone who adores her and thus comes across as slightly insufferable. I like how the house struggles and personal rivalries come in the middle of their relationship, with two such strong personalities as the author shows. I also loved the minor characters, from Jai to Sahil, most of whom were nicely shown and portrayed, and thus added depth to the story.
The writing style was crisp and direct, I liked the use of non-linear structure and different point-of-views to tell the story, it added some spice to a book that might otherwise have been slightly bland.
Faraaz Kazi (Author of Truly, Madly, Deeply)
The use of poetry abundantly in the narrative was probably uncharacteristic but really helped break the monotony of having one character mostly narrate his story. I like how the story gives you a sense of wanting to know more, which is exactly how most teenage relationships end. Its particularly well-written in the sense that it can be understood and yet has depth, which is probably really ideal for its target audience.
Final thoughts: A beautiful, layered story of a teenage love turning into an obsession. Worth a read if you like the concept.

It is a must- read for every Indian who loves to read. A little reference here and there to Bollywood films and music makes it all the more fun.
Rahul and Seema make a lovely couple. The book took me back to my school days. It makes you realize not only the power of love, but also that of memories The lines from p I thought the book Truly, Madly, Deeply was a great read. The lines from poems and shayaris add a beautiful, romantic touch. The brilliant quotes by Rochefoucauld are worth jotting down in your personal diary! I would most definitely recommend this book to one and all. The experience for me was like watching a movie, but of course, a book speaks much louder and much clearer than a movie!
One can easily relate to all the incidents that take place in the book, be it the ones with friends, love or even our families and especially our rather interesting Indian households! Hats off to Faraaz Kazi for writing this book. It is a job well done and I am looking forward to reading the many books that I hope and wish he will write.
View all 7 comments. Jan 13, Fiction Book Reviews rated it it was amazing Shelves: Simple narration forms the crux of this story. Initially, it was a little slow and made me justify myself for picking it up from the neighborhood bookstore.
But the turn of events and the exquisite detailing of the characters and the setting kept me hooked. It shows us human emotions in their raw, unbalanced forms and draws from love in a puerile excited manner.
But yes it should come with a statutory warning that readers may shed tears after 'watching' the emotions unravel themselves. A promisi Simple narration forms the crux of this story.
A promising read by an equally promising author. Suggest it to all those who are looking for a journey down memory lane. View 1 comment. Jan 22, Pooja Kad rated it it was amazing Shelves: Comparing this story with any other is the brink of idiocy as there is simply no comparison! This is not a story written in pages but sweat and blood of the author that seeps in your heart drop by drop with the turn of each page.
This could have been your tale or mine but as fate would have it, it chose Rahul, an able-minded, brilliant boy from his school.
His transition from a silly teenager to a mature boy, almost a man forms the crux of this brilliant tale. You will laugh at times and sniff w Comparing this story with any other is the brink of idiocy as there is simply no comparison! You will laugh at times and sniff with your handkerchief in hand as the author wills. A soft emotional book that deserves to be praised and remembered. Ten on ten! Mar 17, Asha Seth rated it it was ok Recommends it for: A simple mediocre love-story with the heart-aching twist and turn of events will keep you turning pages till the end.
View all 5 comments. I don't think that I have ever read a novel that better captures the reality of first love experiences for many teenagers. It was so real that sometimes it was painful to read. So many times I wanted to reach into the novel and literally give Rahul and Seema a thump on the head for being so ridiculous in their interactions with one another.
But, that is sort of the point. Young love can be ridiculous at times and overwhelming and all-encompassing as it attacks all aspects of life. When Rahul fal I don't think that I have ever read a novel that better captures the reality of first love experiences for many teenagers. When Rahul falls for Seema he falls hard.
She takes over all parts of his existence. But even with this overpowering love, he and she also is so inexperienced that he has no idea how to work through this love. He is never secure enough in his own love for her, let alone her feelings for him.
I loved the times in the novel where he uses popular movies to try and interpret how love should be, or not be. He uses them as reference points sometimes, and that is a very teenage thing to do, I think. The crazy misunderstandings were infuriating to read through, but that again was true to life where two people insecure in their feelings let the world around them dictate the terms of the debate rather than creating their relationship purely based on their own thoughts and feelings.
So much pain in this novel, as in life, could have been avoided if the two principle characters would stop and really talk to one another. That finally happens toward the end, but it appears to be too late.
Rahul often seriously seems to be in need of some help through counseling. His depression is not terribly fun to read about. And, it seems as if Seema gets to this point also, although her regrets don't really manifest themselves until very late in the novel.
And, the ending. What can I say? I have heard some people say in these reviews that it was brilliant. Others have complained that they hated it. I don't really fall into either one of those camps. I seriously thought about knocking my review down to a three star because I am not a big fan of the ambiguous ending of novels. In fact, they drive me crazy. I need closure! But, hey, this time I am letting this ending percolate a little inside my mind, and I'm not totally hating it.
It is growing on me a little. I've just decided to make it be what I hope it is, whether that is true or not. I'm sure that explanation sounds confusing, but it makes sense in my head right now. The phrasing of the novel sometimes does not flow exactly as I am used to hearing spoken English.
It has the feel that some translations of novels have where the sentence structure doesn't flow naturally. But, having said that, although I noticed it at the beginning of the novel, very quickly I became accustomed to the writing, and it doesn't detract from the story. Overall, I wish that there was a little more happiness in this novel, and a lot less moping. But, I'm not complaining. I have experienced those overwhelming feelings of first love -- going from the total elation of those first feelings of love that are the world, to those overwhelming feelings of despair that occur when that love is no longer there -- feeling as if the world cannot go on spinning if this love does not exist.
This novel captures those feelings brilliantly. I don't think that this type of love is ultimately healthy in the long term, but it is definitely novel-worthy for those in the middle of it. Well done! Feb 26, Ayesha F rated it it was amazing. Author Faraaz Kazi has captured the word and emotion 'Love' in it's absolute raw form. Only a person who longs for someone to call their own can understand the obsession of being in love along with the magnitude of attraction a 'first love' carries.
The story comes straight from the heart and touches a nerve that's somehow always open to the slightest touch of remembrance. I loved someone truly,madly,deeply. So don't judge;just enjoy!

An emotional story about a teenage boy, Rahul Kapoor's first love Faraaz Kazi 's first book, Truly madly deeply was lovely with poem quotes that exactly matched the emotions the author tried to say in the book Dec 26, Subhendu rated it did not like it. Its a terrible book. The ratings here are rigged and that's not to insult anyone's personal choice. Sample some lines from the book to understand how dreadful it really is: Hair as dark and thick as the devil's velvet covered his head and high, proud cheekbones chiselled out of a face of sweet beauty; but, lately his growing potbelly had become the butt of all classroom jokes.
An alien? Sahil merely nodded and kept quiet for a while before his brain started functioning again.
The answer made him happy somewhere. Sahil would get him home-cooked food sometime. His Mom concocted excellent Indian sweets, a result of her Indian culinary training and he would get extra servings in his lunch-box to share it with Rahul. He would push them Rahul's way, hoping he had a chance to push it down his throat, but he was much too scared of that unnerving glare, to even attempt that stunt.
I could not go beyond 30 pages. Or may be you would read first few pages and decide for yourself. Mar 15, Namrata rated it really liked it. This is a story about two lovers Rahul and Seema. Rahul studies a grade higher than Seems in the same school. Both of them are the talk of the town kinda. Rahul being smart, intelligent, over confident , handsome hunk whom every girl in school desires. Seema is an introvert, shy , intelligent and beautiful lad among her school mates.
Typically like Bollywood movies the cream of the school fell in love with each other and their sweet romance continues for 10 mnts everyday after school get over. As This is a story about two lovers Rahul and Seema. As predictable there are some mis understandings between the two and Seema parts her way away from Rahul.
Rahul find it really difficult to shut Seems out of his mind. He is in love with Seema as they say Truly, madly and deeply. The story is kind of predictable but what I really liked is the narration which kept it simple and keeps u glued to the novel.
What disappointed me the most is I was expecting a Happy ending for the two but had tears in my eyes till the last page of the book. The loveliest part in the novel is the last converstaion between Rahul and Seems where he confesses his true love for Seema and says he would always want her to be happy and at any time of life when she is totally shattered and distressed , just remember someone somewhere really cares for her and can do anything for the lovely smile on her face that took his breath away.
I loved this conversation and can re-read those lines nth time. View 2 comments. Oct 03, Bonnie rated it really liked it.

All the romantic notions, dreamy encounters, and knights in shining armour for us are based on heavy doses of MBs.

The characters are admirable and the narrative is touching which keeps the reader involved in the story. What I indeed adored in the book is the kind of love Rahul has for Seema. The book is An emotive tale of romance! The book is different from the kind of romance you get to read these days. It has love, passion, excitement, and thrill to watch out for more.

Please read the whole review here: Faraaz has been successful in weaving a story rich in emotion and other matters of heart. The story is spreaded over two countries — the significant part in India and the less significant part in the city of Pennsylvania in the USA. Things that actually happen in schools in initial years in college have been described with ease by the author.
His writing is effortless, the words seemingly flowing out naturally from within. Faraaz has been successful to show the immaturity that hounds the young lovers. What Rahul felt for Seema was genuinely from his heart, but the wavelength failed to reach Seema the way Rahul would have wanted it to.
The starting few pages of the book were tough to go through, because, as a critical reader you may not always expect a book to start in a way so much unconventional and out of the way, covered in deep layers of melancholy and endless lament. Faraaz shuttles expertly between both the classical and contemporary styles of writing, and in style he did that throughout the book. At times, his style suited the environment that has been created in the story, and at few other times, it felt out of the place.
But at the cost of mass-popularity, it is sad to consider that the author may lose the chance of being taken seriously by critical readers. The title of this book reminds me of the very famous song by Savage Garden with the same title.

I loved someone truly, madly, deeply! They happen to break you down and build you up so you can be all that you were intended to be.
At the most, the undaunted artist can replicate the beauty on paper but what is a replica in comparison to the original! The humbling resemblance can only be respected, not truly adored.
Beauty cannot be imprisoned in the lens of a camera. The images of beauty are a moment of its essence. Beauty cannot be displayed to evoke pleasure for all on a cinema screen. Those are just its imprints, mere illusions of its existence.
Beauty cannot be described by words; it cannot be written or read about. There are no suitable words in all the languages of the world, ancient or modern to hold it between a paper and a pen or a script and an eye. Beauty can only be best described at its origin through a befuddling silence, the kind that leaves one almost on the verge of a pleasurable death, just because one chooses beauty over life. There is nothing in this world to hold something so pure, so divine except a loving heart.
And it is the only manner through which love recognises love; the language of love has no alphabet, no words.
