Congratulations author for your debut novel, it was a "Crunchy Read"...
In this book, Atul and Priya's "Love-Ship"sails on the murky waters of "Corporate world" which is often hit by an iceberg called "Corporate greeds and Dirty Tactics"...

Spoilers Ahead

Just Six Evenings by Tanmay Dubey is an intelligently crafted love story of two extremely different individuals. It has been narrated quite well. There are so many circumstances when a writer loses track of the story whilst narrating it in the first person. However, Tanmay has done it to perfection.
The story revolves around Atul. Despite being a protagonist of this story, we could easily relate with Atul, the individual. Especially the people who have ever worked in the corporate

First of all, I want to convey my regards to Tanmay sir for giving me this pre-released copy of his debut novel and I wish him great luck for this book which is releasing on 14th feb and will be available on all leading online stores.

Now talking about my experience while reading ‘Just Six Evenings’. As I begin with it, I felt the friendship of Atul and his room-mates as really happening and it gripped my attention instantly. I enjoyed the train part too, that was awesome and then begins ‘Six eve

I quite liked this book. Surprisingly I could not find a single spelling/grammar/language/ stylization errors in the book. Considering that almost all books that have come to me have a few errors, this was a pleasant surprise. Kudos to the editor!

While this is a love story, it has various other elements to keep the reader’s interest. It is a story of a young man’s climb up the big bad corporate world.

So, this is my 2nd novel in my list from Tanmay sir. I have already shared about the author before. But I wanted to add here is that Tanmay sir is one of the sweetest people available to talk. These two weeks reading his wonderful novels made me smile, cry, and taught me many life lessons. The novel written by him is worth reading and I will surely buy his next novel whenever it will hit the market.

I always used to refrain from reading those typical love stories.. yeah you heard it correct. I am not a very romantic person… but this particular book had everything from love to corporate practices to selfless friendship.

The story:

‘Just Six Evenings’ is a story of Atul, a salesman and his life. The story begins with a scene where Atul is in prison. The author has incredibly well expressed Atul’s feelings, while he is in prison.

‘Why is a man wearing suit locked up in jail? What has he done?’ were the questions that popped up in my mind. I felt like reading it more!

And then Atul begins narrating his story. He speaks about his family, his failure at exams, his journey in landing up at a job in Tectronics, his best

Review: Just Six Evenings by Tanmay Dubey
A good book is called good when it has all the capabilities to bind the readers with itself and by reading which the readers start loosening themselves in the story-line and they find themselves in the shoes of characters and enjoyed the whole story till the end and this book “Just Six Evening” has done the same thing to its readers. Tanmay Dubey has done a very great job. This book has all those qualities which can make any story a page turner, friendshi

Some days before, I wrote like this...

'Everyone is trying to emulate Chetan....But, many failed because they have not understood their originality.'

With lot of apprehensions, I started reading the book 'Just Six Evenings' written by Tanmay Dubey but was pleasantly happy and moved after reading this book. Here comes an author close to Chetan Bhagat without losing his originality:-D

This was my first trip through Mumbai‘s new International terminal, and I discovered to my chagrin that it does not have a book store! Since I had a few hours to kill before my flight, and I had just finished the last book I was reading, I was desperately looking for a good book. I found a store, hidden near one of the far gates, which had a few books on display – primarily multiple copies of Chetan Bhagat…but I found a slim volume by Tanmay Dubey called Just Six Evenings. Since the cover procla ...more

Story and plot.
Just six evenings' is a love saga of two different personalities, in which a below average student, Atul, fell in love with an intelligent, ambitious girl, Priya. The story describe the days spent in Bhopal and the events that transforms the feelings of love to misjudgments to hate. It's interesting to see the way story moves forward.

The narration is done beautifully, making story connecting. The situations described in the story are practical and believable and hence the

“That line between love and lust was thin as a whisper.” “Just six evenings” is a pot boiler with all the essential ingredients of love, trust, betrayal, lust, money, sacrifice, realization, frauds and destiny. The keywords are self sufficient to describe what the novella is all about. The cover of the book and the title are matched perfectly. The plus point is the twist and turn of plot. The way the “six evenings” return in Atul’s life is the turning point because it is then when Atul gets a se ...more

Read author Tanmay Dubey's debut book, “Just Six Evenings”.
It's not a literary work, on the contrary has grammatical mistake & needs serious editing.
But the author bowls with his simplified narrative.

Its a story of small town guy, who is average in academics & becomes a sales executive. He meets a girl & falls in love in 6 evenings. Get separated, than when they meet, he again needs to prove himself again in 6 evenings.

The story is so honestly told, it tells the dreams of all small t

Atul is in love with Priya, but not ready to commit yet. (This commitment phobia is really scary, to be honest). Their fledgling love is torn apart by a single act of stupidity (read: lust, betrayal), that results in both of them going their own separate ways. Even as they get busy climbing up the corporate ladder, their wounds are still fresh. A chance encounter many years later brings memories of that time to the fore. Would Atul and Priya be able to forget what happened? Is the very act of be ...more

Just Six Evenings is one such book which you would like to re read and dive into it, plot of the story is brilliant. Characters of the story lead and supporting both are portrayed wonderfully that clearly depict author’s hard work and dedication.

What makes just six evenings stands out is the sensible approach that the author took in characterizing Atul’s life, his struggles, Guruji’s Gyaan etc.

I really wish the author consider the remarks that he gets for this book so that the corrections can be

Nice story about a young and ambitious guy who goes the unethical way to earn success and loses his love twice in the process only to redeem himself by surrendering.
spirituality, corporate pressures, love, life and lust. all combined in one.

loads and loads of grammatical and spelling errors. needed better editing and the writing could have been better.

overall, a nice read.
