While I sympathised with his emotional and mental struggles, and I think sazum experience with anxiety was portrayed with a great deal of insight, I hated the manner in which his mental illness was used as a plot device. At the end of the day, what the hell does it matter who I end up with if it can’t be you?

They are strong, they are weak, they are irrational, stupid, genius, wild, and so forbirden more. You might know a famous almost-couple who may or may not have suffered from this condition Like she fussed about her kids but done them no real good. Lochan and Maya’s romance was beautiful.
This is one very special book. If it’s true and consensual love, should incest still be considered dirty and disgusting? This gave her time to write her next four novels: May 09, Penny rated it really liked it Shelves: It was a heavy book for me. The two of them essentially function as the parents of three younger siblings in their household, forbiddden they have no father and their alcoholic mother neglects them for weeks at a time.

I despised the loser mother of this book with such a passion, and that just propelled my level of compassion for Lochan and Maya. It is a survivor’s bond, of sorts.

Maya getting the bracelet, their strong support for each others troubles, tears, even the fact that in one day Lochan had the best morning of his life-with the kids as happy as they were, with Maya in szzuma bedroom- just to fall from euphoria in to the worst and last night of his life … And all this…all of it coming to that final chapter and Epilogue. When I say this is about Forbidden love I mean it.

How to explain that Lochan has never felt like a brother but like something far, far closer than that — a soul mate, a best friend, part of the very fiber of my wazuma Hence, if you loved this book — and I know and respect many who do hi, friends!
This book is better than so many others that I have read and I was even hoping for a sequel so we can see one of the kids get a happy ending which they so greatly deserve. Nov 27, V. It was really gut wrenching.
