GR8 Meter: 4/8 MAYBE YES / MAYBE NOT
So 272 pgs and 6 days later, I finally completed the latest book of Chetan Bhagat (obviously I bought it, I am a fan of him) and here’s a true review of the book.
For a change CB took female as the novel lead, and this novel is written in 1st person. This book has a female lead and its good to see how CB took on the role of a female lead and explained it quite well.
Its a story of a Banker Radhika Mehta who works in Distressed Debt group of Goldman Sachs, the best group in the best investment bank. She is getting married but her past or rather pasts caught up with her!! SPOILERS!! She caught up with her 2 ex-lovers on the site of her destination wedding in Goa. Whom will she choose, her Newyork 1st love Debu, her Hongkong 2nd love or her husband to be?
Lead character wise CB came up with a strong character, plotwise feminist loving but story wise weak. Not much goes on over those 272 pages. I will still put his other books – 2 states, 5.someone and 2 mistakes above any other book of him. This is a bit regular ongoing type of story with some drama, emotion, feeling and a destination wedding thrown in. And oh yes!! 2 sex scenes as well (CB’s trademark). The novel has setting in 4 different cities – Newyork, Hongkong, London and Goa and the novel ends on a lighter note. The description of places are good and the language simple as used to be.
I rate the book 4/8. If you’re a fan, read it, else, avoid.
