My take on the book
The books is for >People who love reading college stuff, dost-yari plots, easy and light storylines and no worries-no tensions plot.>Though I did not dislike the book but I won’t push it on anyone or re-read it myself.
Reasons being >It sounds very typical of those college stuff stories which are being panned out these days [like days in IITs and IIMs et al]>It’s not that grown up type’s story.>It has no significant plot or any particular story line other than life of 6 friends in the LBS campus and their quest of landing in a secured job post the course.
On the other hand >The narration is easy flowing.>It takes you back to those days when you were struggling between GD-PI preparations and scoring good grades-quiet a ride down the memory lane.>It has friendship concepts which makes it a nice read like watching the movie ‘Dil Chahata Hai’.
