Some books are written with so much positive vibes that in spite of all the shortcomings in the story still it leaves quite a strong impact on the psyche. The Ghosts of Gurugram by Debeshi Gooptu is one such book.

It is not a horror or humorous novel, but a book conveying an important message to never give up your life how much harder it has become to live. It is just a phase that will pass away. There is a dawn after every night and happiness is waiting for you at the horizon to be embraced by

This book looked like a little serious when I began reading. But actually it was fun too. It was well balanced with a good heart and a solid writing style. This really made me little more aware of our own hesitation to seek others and to drive our life better. Enjoyed this short quick read.

The strong underlying message that lies deep and reiterates itself through all the 'spirits' of Gurugram is to never give up on life no matter what. The 'dead' teach us a lesson that-"People need to be supportive and not judgemental," The impulsive choices that we make in life, recklessly, bring about our doom that we regret later. Debeshi Gooptu has successfully filtered out the mucky glam/shallowness from the designer Millennium City with a glittery facade that is terribly dark and murky insid ...more

A pleasrable and thought provoking read

Protagonist Tara from Kolkata ventures into the extremely materialistic world of Gurugram. Her interactions with the ghosts and humans reveal deep-rooted social issues and raises pertinent questions about the price of globalisation and its effect on lifestyle and values. A sensitive and perceptive description with vivid word pictures.

Combining two genres in a successful manner is not a task that is easily accomplished by most writers. However, Debeshi Goopti has accomplished this feat with The Ghosts of Gurgugram perfectly well. The cover page of the book has been designed in an interesting manner, focusing more on the humor content than horror. I was really excited to read and review the book which promised a great mix of my two favorite genres.

The blurb ignites a spark of interest that does not fizzle out as most cracker flower- pots do these days. Instead the spark takes on an interesting hue that if the author wanted could make give the reader goose bumps. But interestingly the spark instead of turning dark and ominous turns out to be …….. I’ll leave it for those interested in reading the book to read and discover. No spoilers here. 🙂

A thriller of sorts, the book has at its core a relevant yet disturbing malady, a sad psychological

Debeshi Gooptu has done amazingly to weave out words and created a perfect world where such things could happen. The pace of story is great, events kept happening and there wasn’t any dull moment (as per me).
The book touches issues that we know exist, but in our busy life turn off them. Depression, Dowry, Suicidal, Getting good marks, Old age issues and what not. The story of The Ghosts of Gurugram depicts harsh reality of the transformin

The important aspect of this book was the writing. I love the way the author wrote the whole book – it was so easy to read however not letting go of an important message.

I liked the whole concept of the book and how the story unfolded. The transformation of gurgaon into a high tech city was so much visible and visualised

incidents like dowry deaths, suicides, murders, and violence against women acts as a subplot to those book. In a high-tech modern city incident like this happens everyday but goe

The book is combination of horror and humour. Main character Tara ‘s interaction and conversation with ghost Simran reveals a deep social issue. The book covers topic like education system in India. It reveals how our education system is affected. The plot is different and keeps you engaged.Every chapter has new twist. I love the way author wrote this book.Dialougues in the book are funny . Overall, it was a scary, emotional and eye opener read. I enjoy this book a lot. It is an light read and l ...more

I really liked the author's way of telling the story. What seemed like a horror story in the beginning turns out to be an emotional read. The book has a fixed pace throughout and every chapter ends with a twist. The special thing about the author's style is her dialogues. I especially enjoyed the dialogues between Tara and her office colleague Neetu. They were smart and funny. Overall, if you ignore a few typos, the book is one of the most interesting book I've read so far.
