The sample of the book was so interesting that I knew this book would be a total page turner so I decided to buy it right away. Sadly, the book did not live up to my expectations and slipped downwards with each chapter. Why do I say so? Read on to know what about the book disappointed me the most.
In her attempt at finding her true love and losing her virgin status, she meets people who change her perspective on love, life, men, women, and herself. I especially liked the first few chapters of the book where the protagonist Kaveri explains her dilemmas in life. The writer, Madhuri Banerjee perfectly captures the fears, aspirations, and expectations, of a thirty-year-old woman still waiting to find the right man for herself.
She has given a clear background explaining why Kaveri waited so long looking for the perfect mate. The writing may not impress someone obsessed with literature but it is eloquent enough to be called a decent read.
Given the fact that Kaveri is an Indian living in India, it is not uncommon to be a virgin even beyond the age of I understand Kaveri lives alone and is lonely but what she does is not justified in any way. Her friend suggests Kaveri to get into another relationship just to get over her ex-boyfriend. This may be an effective way to get over your past but I did not see how it helped Kaveri in the story. All she does is have quickies with any man she finds remotely attractive.
It does not help her get over her heartbreak in any way. In what way does she feel liberated then? What I feel here is that the writer probably wanted to kinda break the taboo around sex by showing a young woman indulging in some mindless sex without any inhibitions.
I am not against this idea, but I not appreciative of how it was put forward in the story. The book only went downhill for me in the second half. Final View : This book is suitable only for those looking for a quick and light read. You can pick this book only if you have absolutely nothing to do. It is interesting, entertaining, but also slightly frustrating.
So it is better to not have high read any expectations from this one. Originally posted on Alphagirl. Jun 16, Amit Gupta rated it liked it. After a slew of unsuccessful dates, Kaveri, the protagonist of the novel, is a year-old, who is soon turning This is one clit-lit oops, chick-lit which is almost done correctly. Kaveri may not be the best central character you will read this year, but she grows on you. Living in a sexually repressed environment, she gradually learns to live on her own terms in a relationship, even though it takes her multiple attempts and sex sessions!
Such kind of mass Indian fiction within realms of Chic-lit obviously comes with its own limitations. Why even after living in Mumbai and being 30, she can't find one single decent man? And when she does, she almost experiments to sleep with all of them.
You can attribute that to the sexual experimentation phase Kaveri is going through, but in the end it just poses some unconvincing questions. The book has a cynical tone on love, sex and relationships and one of the main reasons why it resonated with me. You may have a polarizing view on the central protagonist but in the end the fact that you invoke strong emotions about her is what works in the favour of the book.
Give it a shot, you will not be entirely disappointed. Jul 25, Priti rated it liked it. I enjoyed this one too. Both have a non-judgmental best friend who acts an emotional anchor for them and both have an estranged relationship with their parents who are highly qualified. Mostly I have seen writers describing their main characters as the most perfect person. I am actually tired of reading about those little Miss Perfect.
