Personal Review:
If you want a book to help you reflect on the bigger picture of life, this may be the book for you. I found this book to be an interesting read that looks at how the things in your life happen around you and how you make sense of it. The book is one for those who enjoy philosophical thinking.

In the book, we meet Rohan. As he goes through situations in his life, it helps him to capture his thoughts and reflect on what that means. I don't want to put any spoilers out there related to the book, but I do know that his road is not easy.

 I enjoyed the parts that had a romance twist in this book. The story was one that started to take shape for me after Rohan met Adeline. Learning to love again is hard, but sometimes it was worth it.

Thank you Uday for the chance to review your book. I found it an interesting read.

About the book: 
Set in Exotic India, Singapore, and in Central Europe, Love, Life, and Logic captures the individual struggle of a young man against the seemingly unnamed, unknown, anonymous power of the universe. In a shocking revelation of his innermost thoughts, the book depicts a painful account of his emotional turmoil arising out of his own confusions and dilemmas, and his personal developments through all that.

Rohan grows up in a middle class family in a small town in Goa, India. He asks himself many life questions like we all do every day. Is our life and death an end in itself, or do they have a much deeper implication in a gigantic universal process? Is each human life also someway connected to the chain of events unfolding every day in front of our eyes? We all have different thumbprints; but why? Are we all a part of big numbers game, or does each one of us really matter?

Chased by these and many such questions, Rohan leaves his lucrative job and his family in search of the truth. The journey gets complicated when he meets Adeline, a 23-year old vivacious girl in Vienna. Love, again? That brings him back to question his failed marriage. Is marriage an end of the road for love? Do all marriages come with an expiration date?
It’s the search and the road leading to his final realization that makes this book insightful and thought-provoking.

Happy Reading!
