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.

Not my cup of tea. Either the story should have a novel plot or should be narrated in a novel way. This one was neither for me. In the first chapter, the girl confesses of liking nobody else's voice but Arjun's. And in the very next chapter, she seems to like husky voice. A volatile teenager mindset, my heart tells me, but my mind doesn't let me agree with such transitions that are forced to pave the way for the story.

About the transition that you've mentioned, teenage stories anyway don't need such transitions to continue, they'd continue without them just as well. That's how teenagers feel by the way, they're open to new experiences and eager to meet new people. That's at least how I've been or seen teenagers being. I'm glad that your heart found it natural though, teenage stories anyway aren't about brains as much as they're about hearts. Thanks again.

The writing is elegant and simple. I was skimming through the stories. So you can write page turners, no doubt about it. However, the stories either lacked purpose or failed to convey one. Like the first story was a nothing for me. The book didn't make me think at all, I'm sorry. The plots were half-cooked for me as a writer which had the potential but didn't shine through.

The stories are not gripping enough. I liked the third one where language got complex, but the plot didn't shine through. Second story was elegant and neat, nicely done.

The story is too predictable within the first three chapters itself. And not a novel concept either. Writing was easy-going, pleasant, I felt.
