Atul Shukla, a young, successful executive, has been arrested by the Gurgaon police. As he attempts to find some comfort in the dark confines of his cell, Atul revisits his life and the six evenings that changed its course.
Eight years ago, while working in Bhopal, Atul had met the beautiful and intelligent Priya on a train, DDLJ style. When it turned out that she was in his city for only six days, he decided to woo her in that fleeting period of time. But fate had other plans in store, and Atul and Priya were torn apart by lust and betrayal, seemingly forever.
Years later, Atul and Priya meet once again for six days, while they are both navigating the murky underbelly of the modern corporate world. And this time it’s not just their love at stake, but their careers, and their future as well. Will Atul and Priya manage to give love a second chance? Or will corporate greed destroy their chance for a happy ending?
Just Six Evenings is a modern-day tale of love, lust and ambition in a corporate India that shines at the expense of the dreams it tramples under its feet.
I quite liked this book. Surprisingly I could not find a single spelling/grammar/language/ stylization errors in the book. Considering that almost all books that have come to me have a few errors, this was a pleasant surprise. Kudos to the editor!
While this is a love story, it has various other elements to keep the reader’s interest. It is a story of a young man’s climb up the big bad corporate world.
The starting of the story was quite interesting, you know this would be an interesting read. The plot and the characterization were above average.
I liked the writing style, simple and effective. Some parts of the book had me chuckling. I enjoyed the train scene the best. I even shared the scene with the husband. Humor suits this writing style well!
Initially I thought that the six evenings just meant that the protagonist had to woo the girl of his dreams in six evenings, and that is all the rest of the story was going to be…but I was quite wrong. I have to admit I liked the implication of the six evenings the second time around more.
If you are in mood of some light read, go for it!
