Unavailable to read
Felt like the story was written in haste, the language was a barrier. I couldn't connect with the characters, none of them. It reminded me of what I had written when I first started writing, I'm not trying to be any kind of inspiration here, just know that the only way you're going to get better at it is if you keep trying. Give the story some thought, the characters some definition, the story some content and work on the language, simple English which is grammatically correct would do. All the best!
Thank you so much for the advice. :)
I like what I read so far. I think those who've had to change schools a lot would relate more to the detailing. The good part about the writing style of the author is that it has a well maintained flow, is fairly interesting (I found the girl trying to fit in or understand her surroundings interesting, I mean that part of the book, not specifically the girl) and genuine. Like others said, there are some errors (grammar, language or typos), but that's not a problem as far as you have a nice story to tell. All the best to the author.
The beginning was fine. The writing style is something that needs to be worked upon. I couldn't connect with the characters, there dialogues seemed very formal and unreal, that is not how normal people talk in normal situations. There were some grammatical errrors too. May be, if the author could edit the manuscript, make the narration more interesting and the dialogues more realistic (language and tone wise), the book would do well. All the best!
#Admin, please do something about it. Why can't I edit my comment/review? Plus, the 'enter' thing, the comment/review gets posted as soon as we press 'enter'. Thank you. :-)
The wrting style is what kept me hooked till the end. Brilliantly written, it was a little slow in the beginning though. Would definately read it if and when published. All the best!
Thanks for reading Rajshree...
The story has the potential, it has the freshness. I'm sure it'll be a hit if it is written all over again, in a different way. It seems like the author had this story in mind and she wanted to finish writing as soon as she could. Would like to read the book if published after thorough editing. All the best!
The story till now has everything that a story ought to have. A very well prepared plot, characters built well, all so different and yet relatable. The writing style is efficient, as not a lot of authors can create the interest and maintain it this far when it comes to a complex and intriguing story as this one. Waiting to read the rest of it. All the best to the author.
I'm not into self-help or any type of helpful books for that matter. Don't remember having read one. I guess it can benefit someone who has just started with his career or someone who is yet to go for his first interview.
The fact that the girl met the guy again and again didn't bother me as much as the fact that I could predict that the girl was going to meet the guy again and again after the second meeting. It would have been nice if there was some magical (eternal kinda) love story (like Lord Shiva and Godess Lakshmi were conspiring to unite them or just playing around and laughing everytime they met) or may be a little more practical one (like the guy was actually after the girl's money and he was stalking her or trying to gain her trust). I don't know, I just feel like the meetings had to be justified, or maybe because I could only read three chapters. I liked the part where the girl is clueless as to what to tell the South Indian family about their relationship. But when the family asks if they were friends, they deny and then the boy himself says that they were good friends, didn't get this part. I'm a fan of this genre and I wish the meetings could be justified and restricted to two to three times. All the best.
I liked reading all the stories. The flow was slow but I guess it was important to make the kind of impact it did on me. The first one made me go back and forgive myself for not being able to cry when I lost my grandfather. The second one was brilliant, made me pause for a while before I could start with the third one. The bit that I liked the most was that the girl in the third story hadn't told her office people about her misery. That's the way we women are. Thank you. All the best, would love to read more of these.
Quite different, interesting and real. This is how we feel deep down and this is how we try to cope up with the world. I could relate with the proganist. The writing style of the author is witty, real and insultingly real. Would definately like to read more of it.
Okay, it created curiosity in the beginning, found it funny until the third chapter, when the Righter started narrating India's world famous lobe story we've already read and absolutely enjoyed. The writing style is undoubtedly brilliat but it kind of felt like it was over done. Would definately like to read about the Righter's take on the other world famous Hinglish writers of India. So yeah, all the best!
The stories are interesting, funny and well written. The second story specially, had a funny side and a tragic one as well, loved this one the most. The third one was funny but a my expectations were set way higher after finishing the first two. Would love to read more of these.
Love them all. Wish there were more. The twists are totally unpredictable till the half way at least and they're funny in a way. My favourite is the first one. Your writing style is brilliant yet simple. Looking forward to read the rest of the stories! All the best!
Thank you Rajshree for the generous rating and honest review :-) I'm so glad you liked the stories... I'm sure you'll like the rest of the collection :-)
It was light and entertaining. Liked the writing style and the fact that it generated curiosity in me. But that was it, there was nothing to feed the curiosity. As a reader, I couldn't connect with/relate to any of the characters. I continued reading nevertheless, as it wasn't boring and I was waiting for a love story or at least a story to begin.
