Fast paced and entertaining. I couldn't keep it down till I finished it - two nights straight. I'd bet you'd do the same once you pick it up...

Too bad ZD is not available on paper back yet. I messaged the author and he said it's going to be exclusive to kindle atleast for a while. That's bad because I like stock books that I like build my own personal library. Borrow it or kindle it if I like it I got to have it. Let's hope the paperback comes soon.

A daring first novel which goes against the conventions and challenges the norm of our society, and our shared believes.

I want to kiss those hands... it sounds crazy I know but I just finished book I couldn't shake the feeling, I came straight here and saw what people are talking about the book.

Saying this was "amazing" or "great" is just gross understatement. This was awesomest of the awesome. It left that feeling inside me, I donno but I like those people who get totally absorbed by the book and not the other way around. Ofcourse not everybook can do this but only a few and this one seemed to do the trick on m

Zero Defect is a man's long journey in search of true love, a successful career and most importantly his own living identity. I loved the author's sense of humor and storytelling as he blends the elements of adventure, romance and suspense all in one.

What an interesting story, well written and well paced. It has all the elements one is looking for in a good book. well developed character, interesting story line, mystery and romance.
If you are looking for something different to read, something that is not the usual well worn plot, than this is the book for you.

It really takes a good fiction book to hook me in. This book kept me hooked! I could not wait to see what would happen next. The character are very well developed, and the love story portion of the book is compelling. Must read!

I honestly couldn't finish the book because I was afraid that I will loose my sense of grammar and english if I continue any more. I think the author had a good plot and way of taking the story ahead, but then it appeared to me as if it was never even once reviewed after it was written the first time!! It is full of grammatical, structural as well as typographical errors. Not sure if its only with the Kindle edition I had, but I sure couldn't continue concentrating half way through!

First of all i m quite generous in giving rating.

Regarding this novel, it started very well and suddenly u lost the track and whole story( No story?) going downwards without any direction.

I Still don't understand why so many ppl gave 5* rating.

Remarkable nostalgic narration of Pune and about IT life. But the plot in itself is jumbled and confusing.The story jumps between scenes and characters in between paragraphs of a single chapter, which is kind of annoying.On top of it,there are tons of typo and grammatical mistakes(atleast in Kindle edition that i read).Hope an effort will be made to review the whole script for the future editions. Unfortunately, not a book of my choice.

I had to force myself to read this book after few pages. This is total crap. It is based on IT so I was able to identify few things but other than that it's a total waste of time.
The story is so confusing people keep coming and keep on disappearing. I don't know how people gave it 5 stars.

I'm not usually as critical, but this is the first book I've come across with false ratings.
Having a poor story can be overlooked for a short novel, but this one just went on and on, without any clear story, with very poor grammar.
