Requiem is about love although it doesn't look so until the latter half of the novel. It's the story of the unfulfilled love of the narrator. It's about death, love and life. There are mistakes that a person makes but love often persists. And when it becomes so integral to your existence, you always tend to go back to it. It may haunt you in a sense but is often the sweetest memory that you carry. Requiem introduces death as the beginning of a life beyond Life. Despite the vagaries it is associated with, death can be a fascinating aspect of Life. It then moves to love and describes how the two persons met and fell in love. And before love surmounts everything, one often loses to lust. Requiem details that journey of love. Requiem portrays death and Love as the two continuous pursuits of man. While one fears the former, they always want the latter. Requiem shows how imagination can be a twisted reality. It shows the conflicts inside a human mind. The novel is written in a simple language and is an attempt to connect with the masses.

Requiem---A truly amazing read
Very rarely does one come across a book like this which transcends genres and is about life---the three themes of Death, Love and Life are sure to resonate with everyone. While very entertaining and fast paced, it also raises important points about life, love and choices that a person has. I would recommend everyone to buy this book. It's very affordable and worth purchasing. Even if one gets nothing out of it---at least one is sure to have a good time while reading it.
