The Time is Now
What possibly could an Ex-Major, an Ex-College Professor, a bookstore manager, and a college student have in common? Has fate brought them all together to rekindle some old flames or to start an entirely new one?
The Time Is Now is a short, sweet, unusual, un-cliched, and a mature love story. With just four main characters and one locale, the story is like a leisurely walk around the park on a pleasant summer evening that relaxes you and recharges you at the same time. It is sure to leave you with a mirthful feeling in the end and possibly moist eyes too.
Review: Time Is Now is a short story which I finished reading in less than 30 minutes. Despite being a short story, the unique writing style, which is a mix of storytelling and screenwriting, kept me swiping right on my kindle.
With only 4 characters, the story is pretty simple but the way it is narrated holds the key. In fact, it adds some charm to the story and makes it more realistic.
Although, the screenwriting could have been a bit more tight to add some elements of drama and suspense. But having said that, the author has done a nice job of narrating a simple story with some nuanced layers of emotions.
I would give 3/5* to Deep Downer’s ‘The Time Is Now’. It’s a good one-time read. So, grab a copy of the book if you love reading mature love story.

Since then he changed over and handled many different roles and responsibilities in the Marketing, Sales & Customer Service departments across industries. He finally shifted over to Advertising and spent a good 11 years in the same. It was during the later years of his career that he started to feel suffocated, doing the same sh**, day in and day out. he started to feel as if he was meant to do something more in life, and it was this feeling that forced him to call it quits and resign from his then position of Vice President of a multinational Advertising firm. He finally had his calling in writing. He took out his laptop and simply started to punch the keys on a blank word processor page. Since then, his laptop has been his closest friend, the one he spends most of his time with. In fact, sometimes he wonders if his wife can sue him for cheating on her…with his laptop. No seriously, can she?
