I personally very much enjoyed this book, though it was an obligatory course reading. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here It moves at interesting pace, and keeps one entertained – commendable for the first book of an author.
But overall it feels like even the author is dragging the story aimlessly. I adore Indian novelists, I really do, and the blurb of this one made me advaitz it would be a fun, engaging chick lit.
The occasional glimpses of typical ‘Dilli ki ladki’ wisdom coupled with well timed hints of humour successfully earn a few brownie points for the book. I looked at some online reviews of the book. Reading this book reminded me quite a bit of Pride and Prejudice not coincidentally, other GR reviewers found it reminiscent of Bridget Jones’s Diary.

Book Review of Almost Single by Advaita Kala
I read this book through in one sitting – it was the right size and thoroughly engaging. What has been the reaction of your friends and family to your book? Almost Single is singularly awful: P The book clearly depicts the dilemma of 29 year olds who are yet to get hitched. I get into phases and then read books specific to that style or genre. The only reason I want to write this review, is to tell how much I hate this book. Avvaita mum, cousin and aunty and friends give the right amount of spice alomst it.

I felt no Indian vibes other than the names, places and the nosy relations.
