Sundari I wish you could have done a better job while introducing Gautam ‘s Character and by giving Sangita a little more than usual time to woo Gautam . In this book of yours I felt only Gautam doing the woo part and not Sangita .In some areas ….I could see Sangita expressing her love for him .But other wise It was only Gautam who tries to woo her in different way .Which I felt a little perturbed about it , Even though external factors were not conducive for Sangita but ….she could have tried a little more …. harder to express her love for him .
As Love is mutual affair and not one sided .
Beautiful and graceful Sangita is married to a brute of a husband, of her parent's choice. Physically and mentally abused, Sangita takes solace in attending to her new born son. Luckily, her husband dies in an accident and leaves her a widow. Back in her parent's house Sangita meets Gautam a handsome English professor at the hospital she works and love blossoms.
Gautam is gentlemanly, courteous and charming while Sangita is concerned about the society, her parents and friends, she finds it hard to ignore him. Sangita's conservative parents are aghast by the fact that their daughter might consider marrying again and are vehemently against it. Will they overcome these barriers and get married?
Sundari's romances have always page turners for me and The Madras Affair didn't disappoint either. Gautam is the ideal hot hero that any girl might want to bump into and Sangita is one lucky girl! While the romance scores big time, Sundari also brings the inherent conservative nature of the city and its people to the forefront. Overall it was a great read! Go for it.
Whether it was the nubile Sangita and her 'will-she-won’t-she' moments, or the sexy Gautam causing you to shamelessly salivate over his blue eyes and hot body (much to the amusement and/or suspicions of your hubby hovering around!) or the steamy scenes towards the end that almost sets your senses (and body) on fire, The Madras Affair scores on all fronts! The story is so real, the settings are so live and the characters are so believable that it is hard to stand aside and take a third person view of the story. Surprisingly, you will find yourself becoming a part of the story as it unfolds, you'd perhaps assume the form of Sangita or Gautam or any of the several other characters binding the story together.
What I also liked about the story is that it doesn’t rush you through the delicate affair; rather it takes its own pace and form- allowing the characters to guide the story forward. I also like the way the characters interact with each other and the beautiful way the author has brought them together. For instance, there’s a scene where Gautam meets Sangita’s son Sandeep for the first time. That scene is so vivid and rife with emotions that it brought tears to my eyes just reading it! There are several such delicately handled scenes that manage to make you smile, or bring a lump to your throat or create a palpable sensual excitement as you read through.Read more ›
