    It’s a short read that can be read in few hours. I picked up this book as I have read this author’s work earlier and the title attracted me the most. There are two main characters, Gautam and Amruta. The author has written the story from their point of view. Gautam is NRI or we can say Indian American who was visiting India, but due to lock down, he stuck here. And he realised he had been exposed to the deadly virus. Amruta is a nurse in a hospital. Gautam has to stay quarantined. And that’s how It’s a short read that can be read in few hours. I picked up this book as I have read this author’s work earlier and the title attracted me the most.

It’s somewhat predictable by title but it was fun while reading. I liked the witty and funny conversation among the characters. The language of the book is lucid so that everyone can pick it up and enjoy it. I liked the narration style of the author. It flows smoothly. It’s really difficult to write a story from two persons’ point of view because sometimes it can be messy. But author has done indeed a great job in it. I liked Amruta’s characters a lot. Author has use good vocabulary and language. Overall good one. Recommended from my side. There are lots of things that we can relate to in this pandemic situation so it’s fun reading it.

Name: Love in Lockdown Author: Ratna Chandu Edition: Kindle Pages: 139 Genre: Romantic “Economy collapsed. The fabric of very existence altered. Thousands were sacked without any notice throwing them into hardships.” This novella was my first fiction novel based on Covid-19 impacted world. This book is about an unexpected love story written in the narratives of both the protagonists involved. This book is set in Hyderabad, which is one of the most densely populated cities in India. Hyderabad experienced an unexpected outburst of Covid-19 cases due to various unfortunate incidents, which makes this book much more impactful. The book starts with a patient in a hospital, fed up with his quarantine routines tries to make an escape… Gautam is an NRI visiting India for a small trip, all the way from Alaska. Shown as a highly irresponsible, chatty, and impulsive person gets inflicted with the deadly coronavirus. With the exceptional rise in corona patients in Hyderabad, he could get only get a jam-packed hospital to get admitted. There he meets someone, which sets in motion a series of events that rounded him more as a person and probably changed his life forever. Amrutha, a hardworking, no non-sense nurse engaged to a man her parents chose for her. At the start, she seems to have completely opposite characteristics to that of Gautam. She is the nurse in the very same hospital Gautam has been admitted into. Although disliking Gautam after their first meeting, she finds a pre-eminent bond with Gautam. This disrupts her entire life and the readers are on their edge to predict what is going to happen to her. Although set in Hyderabad, this book talks about India as a whole when it comes to the Corona situation. It tries to bring out a beautiful story from a situation of terror across the whole nation, and to an extent, this book has been successful in that aspect. Ratna Chandu has efficiently mentioned the role healthcare workers are playing right now in trying to overcome this bizarre situation, which was an impressive angle. Based on the lines of ‘Love finds a way’ this book is not just another love story it talks about deep personal relationship with parents, flaws in the Indian marriage system, fighting strongest emotions, and finally accepting the truth, in a pandemic hit nation.

Ready to live at a friend’s place he experiences some struggle to reach his destination due to his habit of sleeping like a log. I messy and carefree attitude of Gautam is quite interesting. I really like the fact that characters choose to travel for a change and for search of something. The book reflects the current situation of the pandemic and what all we are facing in India in lockdown due to the spread of novel corona virus. Gautam tests positive for corona in Hyderabad and all his plans of venture to Goa and soul search are on hold. Many can relate to the situation since many of us had to cease our plans due to lockdown. The situation of the streets which once used to be full of hustle bustle and noises is described well. The fact that love comes our way when we aren’t looking for it is depicted really well. Amrutha has her own commitments and is engaged and Guatam had his own plans. None of them thought of this and now have fallen for each other. They meet in a hospital where Gautam is getting treatment for Corona whereas Amrutha is taking care of him.

The economy has affected, people died and many people lost their loved ones. This book has shown that love knows no boundaries. The author has done a great job by creating a love story out of this most seen topic of this year. The language of the book is simple and lucid. The writing style is engaging and I enjoyed the plot very much, though it's a one time read for me as I don’t enjoy romantic fiction so much. On someone’s insistence, I read this book. I enjoyed it and I was not disappointed. Overall, it's a good story with little comedy, drama and emotions. I recommend it to those who like reading romantic fiction novels, but setting the story in a world which is corona impacted, that made it different from others.

    The way that our lockdown situation was incorporated into this book was presented in such similar way, we're facing right now. Great characters that will keep your interest extremely well. I'm not going to go into detail, no spoilers, just read the book if you are even mildly intrigued by the blurb. This was a nice quick read about two characters who connects during the pandemic. There is not a ton of depth to it, but it was enjoyable and I like how this pandemic situation got them together.

The story revolves around Gautam who is a NRI visiting India for a small trip, all the way from Alaska but got admitted in a hospital for the Corona treatment where Amrutha is working as a nurse. I loved Amrutha and Gautam’s connection from the start, and I loved the contrast of how incredibly sweet they could be, and at the same time they could be incredibly opposite of each other. These two just fit so well together, and I loved it. It's well-written and well paced. This is a fairly short and sweet story, but it packs a punch, with fantastic and likeable main characters who have the potential to have a wonderful love story. The way they unravel each other is so beautiful. This story has all the elements of a lovely heartfelt book. Incredible witty banter between characters. Incredible chemistry. Incredible feelings all around. You’ll get lost in all these characters lives and see how they cope and come together in the most trying times. Their relationship started in an unusual way but thanks to the pandemic these two were able to get to know and fall for each other.

    Just the title of this book was enough for me to pick up this book, its a very pacy read and can be finished in about a couple of hours. Nothing out of expected ia there, but going through the recent situations, it kinda makes sense. I could guess that a book like this would be coming anytime soon, and it did!! Its a one time read about how a guy in quarantine fell in love with a nurse and how the story progressed.

This is the tale of Gautam and Amrutha, two people who are poles apart and proving the notion of 'First Impression Is The Last Impression' wrong. They somehow gets confined to the same hospital by the tryst of destiny. How a guy who is irresponsible in many aspects gets attracted to a girl who is focused and about to get married is shown in a very subtle yet beautiful way. The contribution of medical fraternity especially in the horrifying days is also portrayed outstandingly. The characterisation is in depth and one can certainly pick this light decent read during their leisure hours

The most Love ❤️ in LOCKDOWN BY Ratna Chandu Format - Kindle edition Genre - Romance fiction My Rating - ⭐⭐⭐⭐/5 In every man's heart, there is a secret nerve that answers to the vibrations of beauty.....🥰 Finally got the first book of Romance fiction based on the current pandemic situation due to Corona. The first thing I got in my mind after hearing about the corona is that now we have a unique theme for reading the book and describing a story other than just a love story with some twists and turns. The most extraordinary part of the book is that a Corona positive patient falls for the nurse during his isolation. Synopsis - This is the story about Gautam an Indian-American guy from Alaska. Gautam was a free soul guy. He visited India to celebrate the Holi festival in Goa and finding a companion for himself. He already visited Delhi, Jaipur, Mumbai and now he is recently in Hyderabad where he met with someone. His next plan is to visit Goa to celebrate the Holi festival and go back to Alaska. The story started with Gautam Who is in a Hyderabad Railway station finding someone to help him to make a phone call to his friend Rishi because his phone was already dead. In the same station, Amrutha talks to her mother about her arrival. Gautam asks Amrutha for help and the story begins. Amrutha was Already engaged and is a Nurse in a famous Hospital. She takes her job seriously. Due to the current situation of Corona, every visitor was informed to visit Quarantine center for their Checkup. Gautam as a visitor also visits the hospital as he already feels sick. The nurse at the hospital found that Gautam was a Corona positive patient and they shift him into isolation center for some days. There he found Amrutha again working as a nurse in the Quarantine center. Now, What Happened next is still hidden in this Short fiction. How Gautam and Amrutha fall for each other? How their love story leads as Amrutha is already engaged? Review - The title of the Story is quite interesting as it is based on the current situation. The cover of the story is also well designed to impress the reader. The narration of the book is lucid and smooth. The language use in this book is simple to understand. Overall, I really love the way the author plot the story with every single detail we common man face during this pandemic era.

But, certainly the book brings out the optimistic approach of being written in such a relevant pretext. ⁣ ⁣ This story of Gautam and Amrutha is bound to pamper the readers with its intriguing, unique and simple narration. The book is an easy read for about 2 hours and time would seem to be flying when delved into it completely. Within the constraints of a warm and welcoming writing style, the book is fast paced and would pamper the readers with an informal sense of affection. ⁣ ⁣ Gautam, an NRI is here in India with the purpose of soul search and the destiny searched him waiting only for him to fall in love in this lockdown. With concerns pertaining to Amrutha's profession as a nurse with her adamant and ethical approach towards life, she is bound to be performing her duties for which she's ready with her heart and soul. The poles apart thought process and attitude between them made them more closer and had a mysticism around it. ⁣ ⁣ Humour and wits enhanced the plot to its utmost depth and when the reader would find himself stuck in the book, there is no coming back before eating it whole. The book is recommended for those who are willing to have a light and heartwarming read especially in these tough times.🧁⁣ *************************************************⁣ P.S.

Let's start from the cover is beautiful and very appealing and I definitely judge a book by its cover and I went to the cover dam attractive and I got this book❤️🌸. The language is very simple and I know no one like to read cliche love stories but I can bet you on this one you are gonna love it.🌸 And this cute love story is totally based on something that we are facing these days. This pandemic and most of the couples are not able to meet their love ones or their partners. And I have personally seen a lot of relationships fell apart due to this distance. But can someone fall in love? The answer is yes. The plot of the story is about two people Gautum and Amrutha. Where Gautum is an Indian American and Amrutha is working as a nurse in a hospital of India and serving the patients who are suffering from this virus. Gautum visits India for some personal reasons and stuck in India because of this lockdown. And Gautum tested positive for COVID 19. And the next thing we know is that he is in a hospital for his treatment. Initialling when they meet each other they were like opposite poles of a magnet. Comes from totally different places and have a different purpose in life and many more things. But do love care about all this? No, Love is beyond everything ❤️. Love is not biased. And something happens between them they fall in love 🌸. This is a very beautiful love story represents the present circumstances and problems by which people are going through right now. It was a good treat for me🌸. It's a magical story and if you ever had been in love you can relate with this story ❤️.

    Though I am little late in the game but I’d still say it’s all worth it eventually. This love story is centred on currently on-going pandemic where two love birds make the impossible happen. In these times of social distancing where Covid seems to have brought people to their knees and parted them from their loved ones, luck favoured Amrutha and Gautam, totally opposite personalities, can be seen uniting in love absolutely out of blue.

This love story is centred on currently on-going pandemic where two love birds make the impossible happen. In these times of social distancing where Covid seems to have brought people to their knees and parted them from their loved ones, luck favoured Amrutha and Gautam, totally opposite personalities, can be seen uniting in love absolutely out of blue. Gautam is a spoiled brat, travels all the way from Alaska and is on a short visit to India during pandemic, perhaps for a soul search (I laughed so hard on this when in the name of celebrating Holi and fooling around girls he defended by saying soul search). His fate tossed when he is caught by corona virus and gets admitted in hospital. Amrutha, a sincere woman entirely committed to her profession, happens to be his nurse who initially is not his type but love is in the air!!!! I profoundly appreciate and learnt a lot from Amrutha’s character as being a nurse, she projects the love, care, sacrifices of all the doctors and nurses during this unfortunate time. Author has masterfully portrayed a bunch of episodes that depict the exact scenarios nurses are currently and generally going through which we people barely bother to consider, respecting or honouring them for the same is a faraway thing. Initially the story was quite hilarious and made me giggle very often but as the story takes a few turns I spotted a sense of stability in plot and was not progressing up to the mark. Also, I believe the book should undergo one more round of editing process due to a couple of errors. Narration follows a decent pace and language/vocabulary is extremely impressive, not to mention I got to learn several new things.
