Meenakshi’s blog was famous, so when she wrote a book, it became famous too. Are all famous books good ? This book is your answer, its a big huge NO.
There is nothing much to tell you about this book. Only good thing that I found is, that the language is really simple, and good. I tried really hard to find the idea or message or experience that the author is trying to convey, but it ended up in something really vague, like “confusions of a 20 something girl, when she realizes and refuses to accept Â that she is no longer a teenager, but grown up.”
The whole book looks like a movie that was made with no script or whatever, – Director selected some actors, ( modern, pub going, smoking, drinking and dating heroine ? how about that ? ) and started shooting scenes.
As I told you, language is simple, and it sounds fresh. But if you are expecting something with so called “literary Â value”, you will be disappointed. Â Sometimes the language becomes so simple that you feel lke you are in store listening to the sales girl explaining the product, and that’s too boring.
This book will test your patience. I am really really disappointed. I have read her father’s Malayalam novel ( which was brilliantly awesome ) Â 4 or 5 times, does that count ?
Tips : Read only the text on front cover, you are almost done with this novel. There is nothing much to expect from reading the entire thing.
