First of all, a close friend of mine recommended this book to me. Reading the description of the book, I was sure that this is a girl material. I was so bored by reading the description. I am not very much into girlie stuff. But this sounded too much.

First of all, the language was not so good for me. It was so complex. It had lot of shortcuts which not a even a text-junkie like me was able to understand. It takes lot of effort to complete dialogue.

Secondly, when I started reading the book, I was

Disclaimer: I received a paperback from the author via The Book Club in return for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for the same.

The story is set in Kanpur and begins with Nandini working as head of design in a private firm along with her BFF Sneha. Both are hardworking women. While Sneha is married with a little son, Nandini is unmarried and lives with her parents.

Into the scene enters Aditya, who takes over the company. He makes a few changes keeping back all the s

There are some books which are interesting. There are some books which are boring yet worth reading. And there are books like this which are utterly stupid!
I don't understand from which century women began finding abusive men attractive but this trend is purely disgusting. Let me list out the reasons why this book is NOT a good read.
1) Cliched attractive protagonists.
2) Abusive love interest.
3) Annoying Bella-Swan type protagonist.
4) Cliched dramatic grand events.

First impressions can often be misleading, and sometimes starkly in contrast to the actual reading experience. The book's cover was a pleasant yellow tone, with the silhouettes adding just enough mystery element to create the right amount of intrigue and elicit a second glance. Right Fit Wrong shoe is a quirky title that made me wonder if perhaps, the industry has evolved into some offbeat, completely unique books that fall under the 'romance' category by maybe not be one of the

The editing is way too laxed. Punctuation marks are erratically thrown around, often ending up changing the meaning of sentences. As if that wasn't enough, the story line is so jumpy, with POV pronouns adding to the already created confusion, that finishing this book needs some effort.
The book is a quick read, with the author not choosing to dwell on unnecessary stuff but sometimes it became so quick that I felt I was reading the outline for a scene rather than the scene itself. The end lacks th

Right fit wrong shoe is the typical Bollywood styled tale of a man and women who have a love hate relationship. Our protagonist Nandini is the smart woman who works for an Ad agency which is taken over by her arch “enemy” Aditya. The man much to his reputation makes it his life mission to make her miserable. What could possibly be the explanation for his erratic behavior? Obvious isn’t it. Nandini and Aditya have an history – one from which either of them have moved on emotionally. What follows ...more

Varsha Dixit's Only Wheat not White and the “aura” of her being 3 times Bestseller writer of Rupa Publications raised my expectations a lot for Right Fit Wrong Shoes. Before I go further let me point out clearly a few oddities [or should I say the norm nowadays] this novel has-

I have always been a fan of love- hate relations. The irresistible love and ever repulsive hatred used to pump up my veins with a rush of adrenaline. Nandini and Aditya's love is so touching and rendered palpably. I have become a fan of author's narration. The quirky humor and snappy hurdle of words leave us panting with zest.

Author herself hints through one of the characters about the overworked mills and boons tales of Celebrity meets and undiscovered stunner, which works out as a justificatio

While reading ‘Right Fit Wrong Shoe’, I often remembered an Indian television sitcom which was aired by Star Plus-“Iss Pyar Ko Kya Naam Do”; the similarities in both storylines are striking. Of course the sitcom had plenty other twists and turns, otherwise it would have been impossible to prolong the simple story for couple of years.

What I’m trying to say is that the book plot has a lot of clichés, the usual humdrum of the sweet, pretty-little-girl-next-door falling for the rich, spoilt, handsom

Right Fit Wrong Shoe is typical Bollywood inspired story.
The protagonist’s families are neighbors; Aditya, a big shot running family empire and Nandini, a simple girl next door. Boy meets girl. They hate each other at first sight. As time moves, more they bump into each other, more they fall in love. Finally when they confess their love to each other, tragedy strucks and lovers drift apart. How they meet again and then live happily ever after is what is Right Fit Wrong Shoe is all about.

The story revolves around Nandini who is the head of the Design Section in an ad agency and the spirited Aditya who takes over the company and swears to make Nandini’s life miserable. They go back a long way, were friends turned lovers and then enemies. What went wrong between them? Why is Aditya seeking revenge?

Book Review : Right Fit Wrong Shoe is a good read because of these following reasons

It is easily page flipper.

It is mix of various emoji like rona – dona, parents and others relatives pinning up for both heroine and hero, hero ka attitude throw karna and heroine ka bollywood hangover is actually the USP of the book . I always love to read these kind of stores which has a perfect mixture of all the emoji in it and your eyes will not allow you to keep the book down .

What does a woman want? Shoes, sex, money or love? And RFWS shall give it to her. The story of Nandini or as her hesistant paramour describes her 'lassi in a wine glass' is set in Kanpur. Her spirit is undefeatable; she mocks certain death (Aditya) and suffers stoically for love (Aditya, again). Her accomplice in all her escapades is Sneha Verma that function as a chaddi-banyan friend and a BFF to her. It encases a young women's thoughts on the society she survives in.

This book was offered for review and, intrigued by the unusual title, I asked The Book Club for a copy in exchange for an honest review.

I understand that it is Varsha Dixit's debut novel and that it released some years ago.

It is touted as chick-lit and I found that that's exactly what it was. It is about young lovers torn asunder by circumstances - become enemies - meet again, battle it out - and, thankfully, happily reunite.

The cover is really cute - a man and a woman in silhouette - their pos

This was my first book by Varsha Dixit an Indian author. I had expected this book to be a emotional and dramatic love story, as all the other love stories that I had read by Indian authors. But I was surprised that it was such a fun and light read. The book dose have some element of drama in it. As nothing can be digested without a little drama in a story especially in India ;).

But apart from that it was an easy to read book which was able to hold my attention! It made me laugh and also cry. It

Right Fit Wrong Shoe is a story of a girl named Nandini and Aditya whose families are close knit. Thus, an objection from them is out of the question. It's the circumstances, distinct personalities of these protagonists that will make the reader go on a journey that includes Bollywood style of communication and wording from various hit movies dating since the 1980's.

There are plenty of characters in this book and am glad the author introduced them in the beginning thus, giving an idea to the re

'Right Fit Wrong Shoe’ is a mix of typical 80’s M&B’s and Bollywood masala movies with beautiful, smart protagonists. Which is perfectly fine, since the blurb indicates the same and the cover I must say complements the blurb.

The story opens with lovely Nandini receiving the news of the takeover of her company by handsome Aditya, with whom she shares a history. She dreads meeting him. Man on a mission, Aditya makes her life miserable the moment he arrives in the city. It was cute to see him a

As the blurb says, the story begins at the ending of Nandini and Aditya Sarin's story. And from here you go in the reverse direction. As Aditya is returning back to India and to Nandini's town, she is worried sick of facing him. His last warning keeps ringing in her ears as she tries hard not to imagine what the encounter with Aditya might unravel. And what's worst is Aditya takes over the company Nandini works for. But one thing is evident. The sparks are very much there. So will the sparks lea ...more

Even though I have never read “Mills and Boon” stories but this book must be close to them based on whatever I have heard about them. Varsha Dixit is first time author and in her book “Right Fit Wrong Shoe”, she has captured urban middle class life with lots of cynicism and fun. This is one book where every chapter has a Bollywood movie name as title. There is a good amount of hindi dialogues throughout the book and lots of acronyms that I could not understand, man

It's a typical girl-next-door-falling-for-a-rich-handsome-dude. It's really very cheesy, will sometimes even make you laugh, so kinda high on humor factor. A lot of family drama, which is quite obvious, as the book is a dramatic one. Yes of course, not to forget, the sizzling, hot chemistry between Nandini and Aditya. Yeah good for a lazy-Sunday-afternoon-light-read. Overall, an entertaining book.
