|My take on the book||There were many instances, where I felt that author is taking about Chetan Bhagat, may be my thoughts. or its simple that all authors have same kind of circle with happening things in life. It made me wonder trying to sell his own story with a twist. He also bring in movie personalities and book review program.
I liked the way he tried to portray his colleagues and boss. the way they accuse him to be famous author , never leave a chance to pull his leg.
I liked the character Maya a lot. from the beginning she is the one who is determined who does what she wants. She put her family as priority and works with good ethic.
Though Maya is the one, who is idle human being, I can’t leave out Shreya. A character to be really admired. she chooses fidelity as a path to succeed her ambitions. At times you feel she is heartless , even to think about publishing her book at somebody’s deathbed.
Though it seemed like a bit of mills n boons, but could have a been lit better. feels like the author is still hesitant to write about sex.
Climax was too much of Drama, if a chance is given , this can be a good bollywood material.
The best part of the book was suspense. it was really maintained till the end. that is the only reason I think the book can become a hit.
Over all, I felt it little lacked the kick of his earlier work, which brought in so much about banking and thinks which I really didn’t know.
|Do I recommend the book?||Yes, for one time reading, and for lovers who like Romance mixed with suspense.|
|On the other hand||
my rating: 3.5/5.
