I waited for such a long time to get to know what happened to Ravin. But what I read made me feel that somehow the author has written the book because he had to write it.I found the soul missing in the book.
Rather than waiting for "what happened next?", I was just waiting for it to end.
When I read "I too...." I was engrossed into the book. It was like I could see what was happening. But it took me a week to read this book! It was that boring.

You feel that the girl in Ravin's life is a pampered m...more

When I finished reading "I too had a love story", the prequel to this novel, I felt so touched I cried for a week! I literally begged all my friends, bookworms and others, to read the book! The book was simple, plain yet so honest and touching, I read it scores of times and felt the same emotions I felt the first time.
But this book, alas!!This book is a complete extinguisher- it kills all hopes, expectations, and emotions, and buries the author's beautiful talent.
While in the first book, the sou...more

Seriously disappointing...!! :(

I wish there would have been 'replacement guarantee' on flipkart for books which you didn't like ...!!

Just banking on his fame which he has received from his first book 'I too had a Love Story' ..!

The first book was pretty good since it was simple,realistic and it struck a chord with me, but dis book was pretty LAME ..!! No story-line , really bad writing(*the first one was also not good :P*) , and the plot looked like a typical bollywood film ..!!

while the first...more

Firstly - I created a Goodreads account just so that I could write a review for this book. I find it difficult to believe that a book such as "Can Love Happen Twice" has an average rating of 3.28. How? I admit I hadn't read the author's first book (I too had a love story) and from everything that I've heard and read, it appears that it was a very enjoyable and touching story. I bought Can Love Happen Twice online, after my mum read about it in the newspaper. It was a short book, and probably too...more

i really liked his 1st book because it was honest even though simple and predictable, this was a fine read though but not great, i would have preferred something new from him just than sequel.

Ravin is such an awesome author. His first book " I too had a love story " completely made me his fan leaving me speechless, in tears. His love towards "Khushi" made me realise the true definition of Love and the second book " can love happen twice" is one good book to read. I've always had a question "why can't love happen twice" nevertheless I came to know I was true that love may happen twice, through this book.

my favourite lines :

When I compare this book with Ravinder Singh's earlier book "I too had a love story", I am little disappointed.

This book particularly lacks the depth, Its a very common type of story. Ravin was so deeply in love with Khushi whom he lost in an accident and he falls in love with another girl in Belgium,just upon seeing her. After that he never mentioned his first love Khushi at all in the entire book except the final pages of final chapter.

His first book really touched the hearts of millions inclu...more

The much awaited sequel is a let down for me, as the spark of true love which captured the hearts of many in the author's very first book is missing in this one.The story started well with a different style of narration which I felt very much engaging and fresh.But still cannot digest the fact that Ravin could easily forget Khushi and feel the same love on Simar's arms.Also the confusion between the lead is much like watching a bollywood movie with no substance.This sequel is a disgrace to the l...more
Dhriti Govind Raj
A good one yet again by Ravinder Singh. The concept is touching again, but this time around the book captures an essence of the "modern day love story" wherein you tend fall in and out of love at the drop of a hat and very surprisingly, it hardly any effort doing so.
Ravinder gives light to the present scenario of love stories, which makes it a good read as you can relate to it pretty well.
Again, a must read, I should say. But don't expect too much out of "Can Love Happen Twice?" as it can defin...more

I liked the first part-'I too had a love story',better than this.I wish I knew which parts of this book were fiction and which were real,so that I could really rate this book.It was a typical romance.Nothing special.After a great book like 'I too had a love story',the author has to be careful while writing a second book.
Nidhi Khanna
I actually picked this book after all the hue and cry that has been created around it. Thus forcing me to read the preceding one. Being a non romantic book lover, i thought i would have to endure not one but two to figure that deal on this one. I'm glad i did

The first one was strictly average, however the ending is well written in terms of the emotion and not the writing as much. Though even while i say average it does bring tears to ones eyes. The second book though the author seems to have got...more

Author: Ravinder Singh

Rating: 3/5

Can love really happen twice. Do you think being loved is that important in your life that you tend to loose grip of your life if your loved one leaves you. Do you really need a rehabilitation if you are going through a break up. These are some questions I got while I was reading this book. The book had nothing new in it. Having a bright start with the radio...more

it is a heart touching story about the author who had lost his loved one Khushi on a car accident and then went away to Belgium to find a new purpose of his life. and there he met a girl names Simar who was studying MBA in Belgium. and they became close friends.. they loved the company of each other and so Simar asked about Ravin's past and he handed her the book.. this was how she started falling for him.
Soon, Ravin had to go back to India as his project over there was over.
And when they met a...more

The answer to this title is 'No, it can't happen twice'. I read 'I too Had a love story' long back.

Have been waiting for the second book since long. During November I got a mail from Flipkart for the pre-booking of 'Can Love Happen Twice' and within next five minutes, the order for the book was placed.When I ordered this book from flipkart, I really had some great expectations from the author, considering his previous book "I too had a love story" was such an amazingly touching tale of love.But,...more

To Ravin's answer to his question asked on the coverpage is NO! It could've been yes but after completely reading this book the answer is sure-sure no. I found something missing in the sequel. Perhaps 'the honesty'. As said in the reviews posted by others somewhere the soul was missing. When I was reading his first novel 'I too had a love story', I got numb during climax. Though we all know that was a true story it was worth reading it. It was so heart-touching and painful that it was really har...more

Bad....!
I had heard a lot about Ravinder Singh's bestselling book "I too had a love story" and wanted to give it a try. Unfortunately (for a whole wide range of reasons), the book shop had his sequel"Can love happen twice?". i bought it, only to regret it later.....
Filled with unnecessary promotion of his maiden novel and amateur english, this novel was, to say the truth, horrible to the core!... Unreasonable and unbelievable incidents occur making the reader ask himself one question again and a...more

Rightfully earns a place in my Run Away Quickly shelf. I really tried to finish this but bad writing just turns me off. And the repeated self plugs and self praise for his first novel "I Too had a Love Story" did nothing to help either. In the very first chapter, he compares his first book to a modern day equivalent of the Taj Mahal. Wtf???


There are obvious attempts to fill more pages because the author was unable to come up with something interesting. From the very first paragraph. Where Amarde...more

When I started reading this book, it sounded boring to me as typical it was like other love stories.Bt whn she starts to refuse to marry him giving out primary reason lyk wanna live only with u and not with ur family a tinge of astonishment run down by spine since the same events are happening to me after getting married for me now. I loved a girl for more than 5 yrs and got married to herself too. But she gets disgusted wen I speak abt my parents about staying with us after retirement.I had won...more

It feels like the author desperately wanted to write this book!!!
But I wanna know what happened to Ravin after Khushi...!
Its good... But something was missing...!!
The end was kinda expected....

The second book by Bestselling author Ravinder Singh falls a long way behind his extremely successful maiden novel 'I Too Had a Love Story'. Can Love Happen Twice is an ordinary book, devoid of the raw emotion and charm of the writer's first book and thus fails to create much of an impact on the reader.

The story is simple. Ravin, who lost his girlfriend in a road accident just three days from their engagement, is still trying to recover from the terrible loss. He moves to Belgium for a project...more

And…I’m exasperated with the sequel too. It’s not that I had very high hopes on this one, but I had assumed the second book would be at least at par with the first one, if not better. But (<- this is the word I seem to be using the most while writing reviews on Ravinder Singh’s penmanship!) – I am indeed sorry to assure most readers that this is not worth their money, not even at 84 after discount. The book starts better than it ends. The first few pages promise of a lean potential to carry t...more

starting from the beginning, this book was a turn off. since this was his 2nd book a little improvement in narration was expected but alas it wasnt delivered.
it lacked substance, the fire that would keep the reader wanting to know more. instead, all i wanted to do was finish the book as soon as possible and get done with it.
here again we had a beautiful story but it went down the drain. too much physical chemistry, excessive description of the events at the chinese restaurant and more importantl...more

the book is good for the amateur readers....but for a veteran reader it becomes quite boring and too plainton. i feel that Ravinder singh has consciously tried to follow the same lines of falling in love, creating romantic scenes that particularly appeal to the immature lovers and then creating a tragedy; treading the same line of path of his earlies maiden book 'i too had a love story'. while the previous book appealed a lot to the readers as it was a true tale this one fails to do so for its i...more
Daljit
This book seems to be written simply to en-cash the popularity of the first book of the author. The story starts with too much of boasting about the first book and it's popularity. So much that in one of the radio shows it becomes the most popular show ever in the history of India for a span of 5.5 hrs. It sounds unrealistic. Then the story also is below average. The previous book had some emotions attached to it. You could feel the emotions of the author in his writing. This book on the other h...more

Compared to his first book.. WHich I remember praising a lot.. This was nothing.. A sad cliche in which the author appears extremely narcissistic. Its is story that has been told many times before.. It is very detached from reality and as a reader I could hardly find a shred to hang on to so I could relate to the book.. In contrast to his first book where you actually felt everyting he was feeling, this was a pathetic attempt at a novel.. And was clearly done for fame that comes with it and not...more
Arvind Raina
The first one was better in comparison may be the reason being that made an effect of being a true love story and this one being a fiction....the middle part of the book is good with a usual love story while i didn't liked the end ....overall it wouldn't take you long to read it not so boring...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
one thing i liked about the book is that it gives you a real picture of the modern day love and how finally most of the relationships break.....
talks about understanding and compromises wh...more

I read this immediately after the torturous, pathetic book named 'Few Things Left Unsaid' by Sudeep Nagarkar. I immediately fell in love with it. Ravinder Singh's writing, despite being colloquial, is still of a standard way above Mr. Nagarkar's. Due to it being much better in comparison than the book mentioned above, I completed the book soon and did not manage to notice any flaws. However, later, when I read Ravinder's first book - 'I Too Had a Love Story', I realized the drastic depletion of...more
