First of all, I am giving this book one star because that is the lowest possible rating available here or the rating would be in negative. Should a 10-year old school kid write a novel, the grammar and the style of writing would be more appropriate for fiction than the structure-less scribbled up "sentences" we get to read in this novel. It is incredible that something of this sort gets published and sold. This is one book that raises hopes in the hearts of budding writers across the country for ...more

It looks like the author was very much inspired by Bhagath.
I like the way he handles the story but not satisfied with the end.

The climax gives an artificial image rather than realistic.

This book is about the love life of a guy from IITB, who is caught between two girls. The book reads out just like a diary entry, and with all its twists and turns, makes a good story.
However, just like the other books published by the Srishti Group, this book too needs extensive editing. Loads of spelling error, grammatical mistakes, too much informal lingo, and artificiality get the book only 3 stars.

The story starts at IITB where the protagonist Maddy, who is from the same college, meets a girl who came to their cult-fest ‘mood indigo’. That relation ends in tragedy in a couple of days. Next, it is about his encounter with Pooja, whom he met on Orkut. She agrees to be his girlfriend leaving her boyfriend because of Maddy’s IIT brand (that is what she says). Maddy gets a job so he shifts to Gurgoan, where he meets his flat mates - Harsha, Kundan and Dhananjay. The relation with Pooja becomes ...more

always enjoyed reading indian books.. but this one is unusual..

there are lot of gramatical mistakes and some of the matter is non-detailed.. the book is worth 3.5 stars, because of the errors, i would give onyl 3 and good book..

This one is worth the time once it starts rolling. First glimpse of it and u wont find in interesting. Once u r reading it the no. of twists and turns will keep u hooked till the end.

I was clouded by the fact that it might turn out to be a regular novel but things turned around in the last 50 pages and the journey went well.

Smooth flow and the surprise elements are good.

A part of my life can be related to the story. So it was kind of going down the memory lane with not so pleasant memories.

This book is about a iit grad(Maddy) who is obsessed to be in relationship with a girl.In college he got a girl friend via some social network.Later he fell for another girl who happens to be his colleague.Finally story ends with whom our hero is.

Story is narrated in such way that you want to finish the book in one sitting.

Well well well I am sorry Saumil. I met Saumil in one of the blog meets a long back and he even gave me a lift back to Gurgaon but the book oh the book I didn't like too much. I think that you need to work on your writing and work with an experienced editor. Also the end was awkward and absurd which didn't make much sense.

Another story by an Indian Author. Another story that explores the life of an IITian. Not a page turner. Not anything new. Would recommend an avid reader to stay away from the book.
