Read a new book today, much talked about ,”Almost single” !!!!! But much to my disappointment, i didn’t quite like it. This can be due to one more fact ,that the previous pick was Khalid Hosseini’s “Thousand splendid suns”…….. , and i must say the hangover was still there, and hence probably i can say my selection of ‘which book to follow next’ went wrong.
I agree to a comment given on the front page -“its like ‘sex in the city’, except the fact that the city is new delhi”.The book easily gives you an option of skip reading, you can easily skip pages (not even paragraphs!!!) and still not loose the context. Based in the backdrop of delhi , but provides no glimpse or potrait of the city (might be the author didn’t want to do that, but i would ve appreciated that)
The language is simple and easy to read. The story line has nothing exceptional or extraordinary about it, but yes there are quite a few sections you can relate to.
If you are travelling , just lazing around , it could be a good pick, but definitely nothing more than that!!!
But yes not to overlook the fact, that its advaita’s first attempt to literary writing, and for that she definitely gets some more brownie points!!! Looking forward to some more nicer things coming from her!!!!
