What the book says: When Kajal, a sassy never-afraid-to-make-an-idiot-of-herself-in-public copywriter, finally decides to put her love-life on hold and focus on that long-overdue promotion, fate mysteriously throws her way a stream of eligible bachelors: from Mr Could-Be-Right who lives in another city, to a reputed lech of a neighbor who becomes her knight in shining armour, from a hunky researcher intent on proposing, to a childhood-nemesis-turned-amorous-pursuer.
About the Author: Author of two books: Two Chalet School Girls in India, published by Bettany Press, 2006, and You Never Know When You’ll Get Lucky, published by Fingerprint Books, 2012, Priya Narendra lives in a house inundated with books and kids and, of late, kittens. And is haunted by a water curse!
My View: I loved its beginning. The first chapter is simply amazing and the book has a fresh feel throughout. And mind you the ending is as amazing as the beginning. Kajal’s client Mishraji is simply hilarious. I loved the way he said ‘Kyu na ispe chorri chod dein‘.. had me rolling with laughter. Ah! The way she leads her life and maintains stuff makes you almost say in the middle, ‘Oh! She is just like me.’ The cover is good though we are finally piled up with books of stilettos cover pages. I don’t know why I am still attracted to such kind of cover pages. I especially loved at hearts made at the page numbers. And this book tells us the importance of presentation very well.The book is entertaining throughout and gives you the outlook of a modern contemporary woman. The way she handles stuff and her job can almost be pictured i your mind because of the great narration. It takes you to the crazy world of advertising where you have to deal with all kinds of clients who eat up your head enough to punch them hard in the nose and you still be polite while talking to them discussing the intricacies of the projects. Overall a lovable read. Now that’s what I call a good chic lit. Yes, before your heads turn and stare at me. I loved the ride on this chic lit and before signing off for the day I would like to clear a simple misconception that many may have. According to Wiki, Chick lit is genre fiction which addresses issues of modern womanhood, often humorously and lightheartedly. So the next time someone titles a campus romance as chic lit, ask him/her to read this
Verdict: A light hearted read that every girl can relate to.
