My Review:

Once upon a time there was a man who wrote a book that was very successful.

So then what did he do❔


He wrote the same story…by just changing the name of the characters and changing a bit of the story here and there and then publishing it under other name.

What stuck me the most was the amount of self importance that the author gives himself. One can blame Chetan Bhagat of so many things…but they cannot blame him of modesty.

Personally, I read books to know about the story, the characters….not really interested in knowing how famous and busy the author is…come on..this is a book..not a freaking Public Relations campaign.

Just like any CB book, the book has a below average boy, a girl who is out of his league, issues in boy’s life, gets the girl, happy ending…wow..what a novel and unique story line.

The concept of half girlfriend was so absolutely and utterly stupid…if a girl does not want to be your girlfriend…then that is it….what in the f is half gf..sigh

Just take any CB book if you do not get your hands on this book…its basically the same thing anyways :/
