A ten on ten in the humour department Phew! Urban Indian advaira can relate to this dream. I’d absolutely check out more Chick-lit like this! Of the three, Anushka being a divorcee happens to be the most sensible one helping out the other two with their perfect makeovers and being a shoulder to cry on during their lows ‘Ugh!
The “relationship facts” seem a collection of cliches to me, and none of the single, working, nearing ladies I know are like the characters in this book – they are too busy struggling to manage the demands of jobs, single-living, and parental pressures, to go partying every night.
Kaoa at this book a little differently.

View all posts by Priyanka Sharma. This book represents eight sinfle my hard-earned dollars flushed down the toilet. If you continue to use this site we will assume that you are happy with it. The love story isnt captivating.
Perhaps I would alkost it most to what we call a ‘masala’ movie: Hunting is no more a male prerogative. Somewhere a clock is ticking, though as far as Aisha is concerned, it can be cheerfully drowned out by laughter over a champagne brunch.
Jun 29, Sarthak is currently reading it. How did you go about wr This ended up being just another chic-lit with nothing great in the offering. 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. Look For Search for: Not losing hope about getting hitched but at the same time staying perfectly happy and enjoying their singledom.
I need to disconnect and feel that urge within me to start writing again, some sort of trigger. While most people worry about where to sleep, a confused few agonize over who to sleep with.
The result is a perfect picture. I am an avid reader and have a particular liking for the suspense genre, right from my Nancy Drew days to Agatha Christies, and the present conspiracy theorist books.
Almost Single by Advaita Kala | : Books
Almost Single – a common state of flux for many Indian twenty-somethings. The author seems to treat feelings and dilemmas with so little weight, they lose all impact. But I was in for a surprise. Aisha Bhatia, over-weight, wine-drinking and almost turning thirty single gal works in a grand hotel and has a snooty boss who makes her life difficult as and when he can. Also, there’s the fact that the book is fast paced. There were several cultural references, which were not given supporting details to help a No Originally published in India, much of the book was lost in translation or more accurately, not translated at all.
When something bad happens to a character, they express their feelings about it, decide what to do next, and then get over it in less time than it takes other novels to describe the room a character walks into. And you find yourself accepting things you never thought you could. Jun 25, Sangeeta rated it it was ok.
Apparently, gay men drool over every hot guy they come across. Chick lit does not deal with culturally suppressed women. If you are not in a mood for serious reading, you can enjoy advaota book for the comical predicaments of its characters and witty humor it is almosy with. They are perceived as a group of hungry piranhas waiting to sink their teeth into any man. While the romance scenes are not very tense or romantic, Kala hits a bull’s-eye with the situations Bathia and her cohorts finds themselves almpst.
May 26, Utkarsh Bansal rated it it was ok Recommends it for: I love reading about different cultures and part of the experience and appeal of reading a book taking place in India is learning about India. Jun 29, Elysal rated it did not like it. All the more difficult to choose one from umpteen ectypes.
Same goes for the ending which comes across rushed at best. A new publishing phenomenon.

I also feel that the book articulates,subtly, the fact that there are people who think they are modern but are torn between modernity and tranditions. They assume that now singlle you have a man in your life, you will suddenly become incommunicado and discover a whole new set of priorities. Not much of a story line in this book and the it ended as if the writer ran out of pages.
