Despite Love is a story of four friends; Rishab, Smriti, Aradhya and Ankit. The novel starts with describing how these guys met in college, the romantic relationship that blossomed between Rishab and Smriti and later how the four friends drifted apart on their respective career paths.
To be honest, the first part of the novel wasn't much exciting to me as it primarily revolved around the romantic encounters of Rishab and Smriti and were along the lines of any teenage romantic novel.
However, halfway through the book, BAM! There is a major turn of events which didn't let me put down the book till I read it till the end. These events unfolded in succession and I was literally at the edge of my seat as I flipped through the pages, anxiously waiting for the mystery to unravel.
This book gave me goosebumps, literally!
It's hard to me for get into further details without revealing elements of the mystery that lie within, so I'll just stop here and say that this is a story of friendship, love, jealousy, deception and yes, murder. The author has done a stupendous job at arousing the curiosity of the reader and it will be hard for anyone to stop reading this novel once they are past halfway through it. I for one, couldn't stop reading to know how it all ends.
The characters are well defined and though certain parts of the novel could have been described in a better way, but considering this if the first attempt of the author at writing a book, I have to give him a huge credit for the way he has laid out the story-line till the end. The ending of the book is beautiful and almost had me in tears.
If you are someone who likes reading crime thrillers and suspense novels, give this a read. You won't regret buying this book.
Guys, this author is gonna go places in near future. If he could write a novel of such intensity at such a young age, I can only wonder what lies ahead of him.

So, let us talk about this novel- Despite Love by Siddhartha Srivastava now!
This novel talk about the story of 4 protagonist- Rishabh, Smriti, Aradhya, and Ankit. Rishabh, Smriti, Aradhya, and Ankit are good friends.Rishabh and Smriti fall in love and Rishabh proposed her and make a special day for her.
The story is simple yet you find it similar to your life in some way or other.
This story is a perfect blend of emotions; love, friendship, animosity and which the author mixed really well. Author gives space to every character to develop and no character overshadow the other. The suspense lingers till the end in the mind of the reader and keeps switching to and fro. A suspense thriller which will leave you in awe.
I admire the character of Aradhya. The way she stands by Rishabh when his two friends are dead. She too had lost her sister and a close friend. But she didn't let fatigue and her emotions outweigh her courage. Through this episode, Siddhartha has beautifully portrayed the women charactor and their strength as human.
This book has intense love, crime, ambitions of four college friends thinking to change the world
A couple of other things handled well is the switching of time, past to present, present to past. The author even mentions the time of the event before the chapter. The approach to the final climax and mini-climaxes in between the story is captured well and ensures the reader is on his toes to finish the book.
I love it !!!!
