A well written book,it strikes a perfect balance between humour and an interesting plot that kept me hooked till the end.Even though it is the author's first novel he's done a remarkable job.Keep up the good work,Mr.Pandit.

Finally we have a great read. ‘By Mistake’ is an effort by Viveik Pandit. Though this is his first novel, he has got a lot of experience in the field of writing. He has been associated with journalism since long and has a coffee table book to his credit. I am elated to find that such a great piece of literature has been penned down in the ‘New Age’ literature section.
Shantanu is an MBA grad from Munich and has come back to India after a long stay at Canada after being dumped by his long time gir

The debut novel by the author has all the flavours of contemporary urban life. It becomes an interesting and compelling read as you move through the well knitted story. The subtle sense of humour comes alive at many places and makes it a completely enjoyable read.

Just another boring book. 'By Mistake' is a really dissapointing book. Most of the books are written in a person's point of view, man but the narration? Really? There are too many gramatical errors in the book. The author may speak very fluent english but she should also care about his readers. A total bore.
