I hated it. I will never recommend anyone to read it. It is the only book that made me embarrassed after purchasing. I hate to know that I own it. It is ridiculous. And I don't know what the writer of this book thinks of himself!!! I left it half unread. I would never wish to complete this book.

Without doubt, one of the most crass books I've ever had the misfortune of reading. Not only is the writing monumentally poor, but the plot (if it may be called that) is indescribably inane and shallow. Really pissed of at someone? Bingo! Gift him/her this book!

Bored on a rainy evening. Picked up this book. Went through the first three chapters. Shit hit the fan. Buried it behind my house. Good riddance.

I picked up this book from my town library for I found the blurb interesting. I started reading it as soon as I reached home. I finished reading this novel in three hours and here I am with my review.
The story has two main characters- Mayank and Revathi. Mayank is a working for a matrimonial site and has been recently engaged to a girl named Nikita. He is having second thoughts about getting married to her for he still feels and thinks about the only relationship of his life - Shweta. Rev

Nothing special in this book.It's plot is similar to the movies releasing now a days in Bollywood, cos the author is turning to be a script writer after this one.I still can't understand one thing Revathi's sister's name is Rupali(p-59) in the beginning and suddenly it got changed to Swetha(p-95) I don't know how this variation occurred.The novel shows that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.I liked the subplots of Anil and especially that of Vishal(he deserved it).

Worst reads ever!! A complete waste of time! I cannot begin to describe the hatred I have towards the author! The characters are so very annoying! The book has so many male chauvinist characters that it left me with nothing but disgust. Mayank was totally irritating, and Revathi, a supposedly intelligent woman sounded and acted like a complete idiot. When the book's cover said "a male chauvinist" I thought the author was referring to Mayank initially, but apparently it was Vishal. Male chauvinis ...more

It is one of the most rubbish books I have read... so much like the daily soaps that come and go on televisions... Waste of time...

Pretty okay. Was expecting much more. It gets lame when it keeps on talking about marriage issues and life in Mumbai.
Total disappointment.

Probably the worst book ever written.

Very confusing story... The picture that the plot gave away, it is the stories of five persons.. Or rather the stories of five different person's relationships..

In fact, five stories of people of a Metropolitan, in this case, Mumbai...

But it had just the story of Mayank (the lead) and just a few pages of stories of the other persons..

The narration was good, very vivid and clear...

Have been a big fan of literature, maybe thats the reason I was bored the entire length of the book.. In fact, the bo

the only good thing about it was the last line - "I'd never grow out of her".
No plot. Won't ever recommend this to anyone. Who wants to read about how we dine, how we sit in a coffee shop and how the mumbai rains are!

This is an unusual love story, the reader successfully captures our heart with his fine words and carefully chosen back drop.

awesome book!
Oct 21, 2012 Neelima rated it liked it
Something very different story.. in which very young boy falls in love with married woman (married for 10 years) just because young boy (Mayank) ...finds the resemblance of lost love (Shweta) in married woman (Revathi)....

In between there are other Anil, Vishal, Gargi, Sonia..and many more.....

Book is one time read.... but do not expect much from book...its simple love story........

On a rating of 1 to 5, with 1 being the least and 5 being the highest, I wont rate it anything beyond 2.5. The fact that it is Tuhin's first work, is quite evident in the way it has been put, immatured writing at some points. Otherwise, it is quite an honest attempt at the complexities of relationships in today's time.

The bookkk takess u to the crowded city of Banaras.
Itzz such a story in fact a luv story in which in the end u cannot judge which of the character (Arti, Gopal or Ragha)iss the ideal and the perfect one. It livess u with a question and dilemma of the behaviour of Gopal in the end.
