Book Review: You've got the wrong girl by Sreemoyee Piu Kundu


Book Review: You’ve got the wrong girl by Sreemoyee Piu Kundu

*Publisher: Hachette India *ISBN: 978-93-5009-580-5 *No of Pages: 334 *Cover: Paperback *Language: English *Genre: Fiction *Price: 350 INR *Rating: 3.5/5

My view:

When I got the book I was expecting something different from the author as I have already read her previous book Sita’s curse. From the title and the blurb of this book I was expecting something unique other than sexual, sensual and bold ingredient what I have read in her previous novel, although what I got in the book as a one night stand that changes the life of Dushyant Singh Rathore in search of true love. Each one of us have undergone in a situation where you are traveling or you encounter with someone to whom you feel that yes I want to make some further relations with her/him but your guts or your destiny doesn’t provide what you needed, all are not fortunate like the protagonist of this book who makes ends meet in search for his soul mate.  

I loved the book because of his pace and usage of simple language through the book, this novel can be read in one sitting if you are in a long journey. You’ve got the wrong girl is a romance novel with the message that the mindset of man are being changed, they too are in need of true love.

What I didn’t like in the book is too much bollywood name in the book, it is some what hyped by using the names of Sharukh Khan, Karan Johar, Katrina Kaif etc.

One of the best lines from the book which touched my heart “No one informs before they disappear, Dushyant. People come and go… like these moments.”

I highly recommend this novel; there is everything in the book romance, true love, sex, humor, best friend, high society life, etc. one of the biggest red light area i.e. Sonagachi is perfectly described by the author. A must read book.

P.S. Thank you Sreemoyee Piu Kundu for the signed copy book along with congratulation page marker from Hachette India. I won this book in a contest organized by Hachette India, thank you very much for the book.

Blurb:

ON A SULTRY NIGHT. ON A DESERTED LAWN OVERLOOKING A MOONLIT TAJ MAHAL. TWO STRANGERS MAKE PASSIONATE LOVE AND PROMISE NEVER TO MEET AGAIN…
BUT PROMISES ARE MEANT TO BE BROKEN. RIGHT?

This is the story of Dushyant Sing Rathore – the 30-something bestselling author of Kinda Cliched, a blockbuster romance novel based on his one night of bliss with a girl whose name he does not know. Under pressure to produce a money-spinning sequel – from his obsessive fans, his hit-seeking publisher, his pushy agent and a skeptical journalist ready to expose the true-story angle as a marketing gimmick – he sets off, three years on, to find the elusive girl whom he had promised never to seek out.

When his quest, many twists and turns later, leads him to the unlikeliest of places and the strangest of characters, Dushyant discovers there’s a little more to his search than he had anticipated. Will Dushyant discover his mystery woman? What if the wrong girl was really always the right one for him? Will he get a second chance?

Delightful, unconventional and heart-warming, You’ve Got the Wrong Girl is about one man’s journey to discover his heart and the supremely unpredictable nature of love.

Book Review: Dial D for Don by Neeraj Kumar


Book Review: Dial D for Don by Neeraj Kumar

My view:

Just like the business, Dial D for don is the fact that how an organized crime doing their work in India penned down by non other than former commissioner of Police Neeraj Kumar. The reason why I liked to read the non-fiction is that you will get the true reality, what happened at that particular period or what is happening currently. Although I have read the S Hussin Zaidi but reading the real crime stories through one of the leading enforcement agency of India is truly spectacular.

Reading Dial d for don is like watching a bollywood movie on adrenalin. It show’s the true reality of organized crime in India. Neeraj kumar writes the 11 high profile cases when he was working as a member of CBI. Even though the title of the book is given on the basis of talk with Dawood Ibrahim by Neeraj Kumar, but there are many other cases which are more interesting then the title. Now there is a new bollywood movie which is going to release this year on the famous bootlegger of Gujarat Abdul Latif and Shahrukh khan is going to perform the lead character of the movie, the movie name is Raeess, so if you have read this book you will get to know the glimpses in the life of Abdul Latif. As we Indian’s are die hard fan of Cricket, the story of Match fixing is a must read to know how the fixing is done and how don earns money from betting. There is a story of “Atithi Devo Bhava,” where how our own crime branch is efficient to work with foreign police is perfectly showcased by the author.   

What I liked among this book is how CBI operates; CBI life is full of constraint, interference of politicians, and to work under government which leads to take tuff decisions for Crime branch. We know our police force is capable to cope with criminal but because of our slow judicial system and too much of interference of politician breaks the moral of Indian Police.   

The book is an easy read with super fast pace, it is easily under stable, also to know something from our own CBI is always fascinating, I highly recommend this book to crime lovers. Each and every story are different in their own way, too know how this criminals operate you must read this non-fiction.
