Wasn't sure what to expect from this debut author, but was very impressed by Confessionally Yours. Jhoomur Bose takes you inside the world of the 'modern' Indian woman struggling to meet the expectations of society and those around her. There's something here for everyone ... love, humour, politics, controversy, sex, sexism and more than a few twists and turns to keep you guessing.
Highly recommended.

Looking forward to the next one Ms Bose!!

"Everybody has sympathy for the martyr; no one was willing to stand by the warrior."

When I read the press release of Confessionally Yours, I was mildly intrigued and requested a review copy; I just finished reading it and I gotta say - Jhoomur Bose's Confessionally Yours exceeded my expectations on every count.

I was sucked into the story from the very first line; believe me, any one would've been. This is one of those novels that leaves you thinking about it for hours, maybe even days, after

If one makes the mistake of reading only the first few pages of this book and thereafter, abandoning it I would not really blame the reader. The way it starts, it can easily be classified as soft porn literally shouting from the roof top to proclaim, “Look at me, my language, my expressions. Oh, I am so cool”.

Not bad, in fact quite a good tale as it deals with some stereotypes of society and the media fraternity - but with quite an intriguing twist

Live wire, but then effing impossible to put down.

Even if one managed to put it down, the damn book can't be put off one's mind.

One of those books that after one starts reading makes one wonder, damn why didn't I pick it up earlier.

Ok, I'm already waiting for the next book, if at all there is one in the pipeline. If anyone has any clue where to find updates from the author, pls PM me. Thanks.

Engages you with a lot of humour and wit. A typical chick-lit with a serious end. Enjoyed it!
