About the Author:
An Incurable Insanity is the tale of Ruhi and Shaan, two young people in an arranged marriage. Ruhi enters into it full of the hopes and dreams of any bride. Shaan enters into it because of familial pressures; his grandfather is dying and he wants to see Shaan settled before he dies. Shaan thinks nothing of marrying a girl and then telling her he is love with someone else – goodbye. He gives no consideration to the fate of a woman in that position in his culture. To be honest – he is a selfish son of a bitch.
Ruhi refuses to give up though, she asks him for just two months so that she can go back and tell her parents that at least she tried. She plans to make him love her in spite of his lover. But Shaan refuses to be loved even when he realizes that he was being used by the other woman. Just as he realizes that he has a good thing in Ruhi she turns on him.
As I started this book I thought I was going to love it. By the time I hit about a third of the way through it I wanted to throw the book in the river. None of the behaviors made any sense on any level and I don’t think it has anything to do with cultural differences. The characters were thinking one thing (written in italics) and saying another. I love you/I hate you/I don’t want you/I want you/Stay/Go. Aaaaargh! There were little subplots about friends and building spaceships that did little to engage me.
Maybe if I were younger. I don’t know. Too much drama, too much angst not enough substance. Talk to each people. TALK, don’t think it in italics.
