Overall Verdict:- Light, Fun and Insightful

The first thing that grabbed my attention was the title. The entire cover felt like a paradox. The cover pictured the mehendi clad hand of the bride holding the sherwani clad hand of groom, and the title in respective gender colours; not “Husband” but “Man Vs Wife”.

“Man Vs Wife” is the story of Viral Singh wanting to divorce his wife Trisha and trying to escape the severity of women favouring laws for separation. The background behind the

I read Ashish's interesting novel Man vs Wife. The title is misleading and you will realise that only after reading the book. It takes the readers into realising that a man is incomplete without a wife and so is the wife, incomplete without her husband.
The novel opens with a plea of divorce that only brings fear to Viral as he realises that getting divorced in India requires luck, a lot of money and bravery. Trisha is his wife and also his sweetheart for long before their marriage that took a l

Marriage is considered to be a holy union of two souls in India where not just two individuals but two cultures are tied together. With the unbelievable paradigm shift in the institution of marriage that has come upon us in the changing times, things have started falling apart. People find it difficult to survive in a relationship due to overwhelming compatibility issues which have been discussed in Man Vs Wife.

In this book, the author attempts to bring forth the harsh reality behind

Marriages are said to change people and keeping the spark alive is no easy feat. It is not just the relationship between the two individuals that needs constant efforts but also requires bonding with the extended family as well. All it takes is one turn in the wrong direction and everything it stands for comes crashing down. It is no different for Viral and Trisha.

At first, everything is fairy-tale like - there is love, there is passion, there is understanding. Then comes a point when slo

I still can't control laughing while writing this review! No matter how serious things are with our protagonist, Mr. Singh, your smile won't leave until you stop reading and try and understand the gravity of the situation.

First-time author, touchy subject - I was a bit skeptical at first. But as a monthly commitment to myself, to try at least one unknown author, what a gem I found! And that's why I never give up on reading unknown authors. I love to stumble upon such stuff and fall o

The plot is unconventional and throws light on the aspects of the suffering of an innocent man who gets in the turmoil of divorce. India is a country where a majority of women are oppressed and most of them suffer at the hands of a man. But here, we witness something different.When I say the book was offbeat, I mean it. I loved the idea of the plot and the way the climax was executed. Halfway through, I had guessed it might end up as a murder mystery and had loathed the idea of innocence gone do ...more

From the title 'Man vs Wife', what a reader does guess is the set of conflicts that a couple come across daily in order to live a happy-go-lucky life. But, that's not the case, actually.

The story outlines situation of a normal man with eyes full of dreams and his quest to free himself from the knot called 'marriage'. It also brings into highlight how the vows taken during marriage are not kept and brutally broken.

I find, the protagonist, Viral Singh's character is pretty

My first impression of the book wasn’t good at all. I thought it’d be another jerky, misogynistic, and cheesy/tragic romance fiction. Also, why is the title “Man vs Wife” and not “Man vs Woman” or “Husband vs Wife”.

But damn, the book was good.

The language is simple and the concept is extremely sticky. In fact, the plot of this book is well drafted. 5/5 to the author for this.

So the story is about the protagonist trying to divorce his wife. But then entered the

A few emerging points:
- A funny portrayal of marriage and the chaos in Indian context
- Gives a glimpse of the Marriage and Divorce Laws and their loopholes
- A nice blend of legalities and human relationship quirks
- The story holds potential but gets let down by the language in use
- Editing the eBook would have made it better
- The cover design is a sore thing working against the eBook

Overall, good book to read, it could have been made better
