Sorry! This book is no longer available to read.

Synopsis

He is arrogant

He is egoistic

He is sexist

He is quirky

He is chaotic

While the world seemed to have “Moved On”, he is comfortable living in the past…his present in a state of constant turmoil But deep inside this perceived exterior is a savaged heart that beats for her every single day.He seemed to be in a “search” mode always leaving is his present in a state of delirium.

Set in three cities, this is the story of Shreyan and the three women in his life.

This is Shreyan’s wanderlust…his Karma quest! A racy, contemporary, witty and realistic tale of love, romance and redemption!

Superbly mixes fiction with reality and amazing narrative. While there is humour and intelligence in the writing...there is a fair amount of pathos lurking as one reads every page with wonder.

The story was promising for me initially. However, as it progressed, it turned into a typical novel that flocks Indian literature these days - a guy who's a winner with emotional issues, a well-endowed girl, sex used simply to titillate and serving as a mandatory ingredient of such stories.

Till the time, I finished reading the three chapters, I was let down. Because the author can write. The writing skills are sharp and kudos for that, but I would not like to read this story ahead. Unless there is something drastically novel in the end (prologue was interesting), such plots already have been explored in the past.

Good plot, the telecom backdrop works well. I also like how the characters are being developed. I am seeing some issues with language that distract from the narrative. Chapter 2 had an uncomfortable change in tense while discussing Shreyan's fear of flying. Also, grammar needs some cleanup, can be off-putting to see errors in the third-person narrative. Finally, rather than be told something like "Shreyan was arrogant..", I'd rather read his character development to arrive at that conclusion - need to weave that in a little better.

If it weren't for these little issues I found, the story and plot are excellent and beckon me to want more.

A very intelligent and realistic approach. It makes you love, hate as well as empathize with the characters...without branding anyone a hero or a villain. The script seems to be as cyclic as Karma!!!All the very best...looking forward to the other chapters as well...

A progressive love story with beautifully etched characters. The twists and turns are yet to be seen but so far looks promising for a thriller of sorts in the romantic genre. There is a subtle mention of relationship taboos and doing the unforgiving. The book also talks about the current lifestyle and nuances in the hectic corporate world.I would love to read more and see how well the Karma is a bitch

Wanderlust...Karma! Brilliant premise to work on and this writing seems to have infused the modern day sensibilities to an otherwise sensitive issue!!! Beware ...'Karma bites' seems to be the moral of the story so far. Would be an interesting read as to how it catches up with all the characters in this pacy novel...

As I began reading...the characters were being visualized in almost every page!!!A start to finish read...amazing screenplay with some real scenarios thrown in. As the scene shifts to Mumbai and Shivani...the book gets more gripping and some of the incidents are downright funny and outrageous!!! reality check check check...

Just when the story starts... Just when the life starts... We have no idea about them... Moments it lives in many planes. Roller coaster is a less qualified word to represent it. Lost moments, rests typically in our memory. But sometime stories like this. Shankar's Karma is a bitch is slight lightning over the zillions of such flip flops of our brain. While many of the Indian English story writers are making million club (why only movies should have such club?), we get to see stories of different genres. I like the dialogues, the moments that it lives. Waiting for the complete story...!!!

One can never escape their Karma! A heavy stuff...made delightable, intelligent by Shankar venkatraman. The story unfolds in frantic space post the customary starting issues!!!

Why is it that books that you like the most are the hardest to describe? I sat in front of my laptop for more than a hour , after I had finished reading it and yet was unable to formulate a word other than "WOW!".
There is such a haunting quality to this book which makes to sit and start thinking.
Shankar's style keeps you binding and generate hunger to know what's next.
The setting, is perfectly placed and both in terms of time and location.
It is a heart wrenching story of Shreyan, I felt his frustration, his fears and his emotions.

A good attempt for a first time author! The pace is mixed: sometime slow, sometime fast. It definitely needs editing. The sub plot 'Jay-Swati' seems a little misplaced. The backdrop of 'telecom' is interesting but sometimes too heavily focused (to the extent that the younger generation of professionals: the ideal readers for this book, may not be able to contextualize). Overall, a good read. Keep up Shankar...I'm sure you'll rock!!!

:- I started reading the book after looking at the cover which caught my attention. Kudos for the same. The dark cover of the novel is in perfect sync with the characters!!!

There is definitely potential in your writing. I find it difficult to visualise the scenes, the imagery is not that great. I like how all the three chapters end but I wish Shivani was introduced a little earlier, it seemed like the story has been dragged till she came into the picture.

Catchy cover, brilliant synopsis (typical of an amir khan movie -the teasers!) and an equally impressive start. Telecom has never been written about and the way it has been described is something unheard or unread of. Hard hitting dialogues between Paro and Shreyan, the shivani angle is cute and naughty. Curious to know where does Swathi fit into the scheme of things.? has the potential for a perfect commercial Bollywood potboiler...Hope this script reaches raju hirani or karan johar at the earliest, Waiting to know more...

Thoroughly enjoyed reading the first chapters. Very engrossing. Contemporary. The characters, the situations, people is something which todays generation would instantly relate to. Eagerly awaiting for the rest of chapters...

Loved the cover and the metaphor it talks about....
Very intelligent writing...
the characters seem very real and close to people around us, as the way they talk, their lives can be related and thats what is gripping about the book.
Its a book which if and should be published would surely be made into a movie because it has the potential. All the best.

Fascinated by the amazing cover....synopsis was like a movie trailer in words. The action starts right from page 1 and each and every characters have been described wonderfully and slowly merges well into the plot. The Telecom bit was a revelation as never before have I ever read a story set in the same backdrop with some amazingly witty office politics...I adored Paro and Shivani...Waiting to read more...
