PLEASE GIVE ME A BREAK!!!!!
ALL OF THIS INDIAN WRITERS HAVE TAKEN THE MOST COMMON SUBJECT TO START THEIR WRITING 'COLLEGE ROMANCE + IIT' PLEASE THINK OF SOME OTHER INNOVATIVE IDEAS LIKE SPY THRILLERS OR FICTION OR HORROR
i very much liked vish dhamija's book 'NOTHING LASTS FOREVER' and “If I Pretend I Am Sorry! Will You Pretend And Forgive Me?” by Prashant Sharma these books are some innovative ideas and quite different from the stories that many budding writers are using

Interesting how among the numerous labels GR users have tagged this with, 'disgusting-novels' is one. That should speak for itself.

In response to a question like 'why on earth would you read something with such a horrible title?', I'd say that I only managed to read about 3 pages of this drivel (Oh wait calling this drivel will be an affront to the term 'drivel') before being seized by a mad urge to hurl the book right out the window. I reined in that urge somehow since I harbor a lot of respect

I liked it!!!

To say, it is just another comedy-love-story-of-a-iitian... But there is something in the latter part of the story, it mesmerised me and I didnt leave the book till I complet reading it.. Now I am going to read the so called sequel of the book - Ouch! that "hearts"..

Life and the value of an IITian can be known... The story wazz quite interesting esp. the beginning itself motivated me to read the whole book. The book can be suplied with tagz such azz humourous, love story, emotional, romantic and entertaining. It wazz somewhat motivating az i found that Life & problems of 'Kanav' little bit matched with that of myn!! i lovd the performace of Kanav at 'Waikiki', temple, bus stop and finally at the garage!!

If in d end, kanav would hav said " aunty m an IIt

This book taught me never to judge a book by its cover.
It was couple of years ago when I picked this bundle of paper up from a bookstore after reading the esteemed “the bestseller” tag printed all over its cover.
I started this book soon and sooner it turned itself into a disappointment, a huge disappointment. The book is built on a traditional theme; a lad from IIT falls head over heels for a girl who is in love with life; apparently. The book explores the conflicts and complications which the

NOTE:IF YOU LOVE YOURSELF, PLEASE DON'T EVER READ THIS BOOK.

That being said, let me tell you that i maintain a catalogue for the books I've read and among all those reads, this one was probably the most revolting,boring,over-the-top(uhh!! you get the point i guess...) novel. This was book due to which I stopped reading Indian authors altogether.I am ashamed that I have read(half-read.....couldn't complete this outrageous nonsense)this book.Would have given 0 STARS if possible.

Most of the story happens in the first year of his IIT life. His poor choice of words and slapstick comedy makes you to lose interest. The fact that the plot will not thicken even after reading 115 pages of a 220 pages book makes you go 'how much more should i read, ugh" i got this book 49 rupees. It worth 49 Rs though. There is no story AT-ALL. In a line hero meets a girl in a party- both like each other- she is scared od her strict mom- he proposes- she accepts-go on 1st date- kiss- mom catche ...more

If there would be a minus 10 definitely i would have rated that.The only book that i started reading but couldn't complete . Narrative style : I don't know actually what to say about that. There is no dept in the characters. A complete waste of time and money.

Lame attempt at romantic comedy .. writing resembles some elementary school essay .. i hope the writer does not feel proud of what he has written .. rating deserves negative 5 ..

I love reading love stories and whenever I see any such books with some good reviews on Amazon, I order it in no time. I picked this book only for the good reviews it had got on Amazon and by some bloggers but I end up disappointed.

This book, ‘OOPS! I Fell In Love’ is about the love between ‘Kanav’ and ‘Tanya’. Set in the backdrop of IIT-D the book takes you into the world of IIT and IITians. Kanav meets Tanya at the birthday party of his best friend, Richa. The beauty of Tanya makes him spellbo

Well, I am sure of one thing numbers do lie. I doubt it that everyone who has read this book has actually bought this book. This one I found in my apartment, and don't actually who owns this book.

Well, I picked up this book just to know how fast I would be able to finish it, I was done with it less than a day. The problem with this type of book is that I feel the only point that this books tries to serve is to polish the resume of author; not terms of a literature profile in terms of extracurric

Kanav, an IITian, who was lonely and anxious person, drastically turns into a confident and a social being; all thanks to his friend Ruchi, who he met in a train. Tanya, Ruchi's friend meets Kanav at Ruchi's party. Kanav instantly falls in love with Tanya and tries to impress her, and yeah, she gets impressed.
Kanav proposes to Tanya and she takes a month to "Think" that she too loves him. (lol) Her mother, who is a strict person and doesn't entertain any love business, catches Kanav and her dau

I finished reading this book. I liked the story a lot. As specially the continuity of the story. It was like somebody was narrating his experience to me sitting in front of me. Thanks Harsh. I would like to know the continuation of the story...

Not A good book...! I am horrified that a friend of mine could even suggest such a book...! Stereotyped IIT+ romance... that might be a success, but the story itself is very boring. I am very sorry for the book and whoever reads it..!
(Ouch! 'I' read this book.)
