The Madras Affair is a book written by Sundari Venkatraman for romance lovers like U.S.The Madras Affair is a great book to read .Author Sundari has weaved the plot and characters like a weaver weaving a woollen cloth by using some innovating designs which gives a different look all together.Why I used woollen cloth hear because it is season celebration and during this season we all feel chilly here ;-) …So as I was saying the plot and characters are weaved like weaver weaving a woollen cloth , Sundari here uses some real issues like widow remarriage in a very effective way while building a plot .TMA (short form of The Madras Affair) is awesome book to read and is very relate able .But one thing , I did not like is… Gautam ‘s early entry in this book and his entry felt too fikaa(ordinary for me ).

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 .

Gooood day Beautiful people,

Ya, that is what happens to you after reading a lovely, toe curling, delicious, perfect, glad-feeling Romance novel :) It restores faith in Humanity & reinforces your love for those 'special ones' in your life.
Sundari Venkatraman you make us a puppet in your web of words.
Sundari has taken a social issue (2-3 this time), characters who endear you, pen down each emotions so vividly as if you are living the script, sometimes give you goose bums, sometimes you smack your head in frustration, sometimes you do the imaginary glad-dance,.... :D never letting you put the book down.

Loved the book in its entirety. Sundari is an amazing story teller.
This is one book that I am going to re-read very soon. I have to, *have to*, return to the world of Sangeetha and Gautam created by Sundari.
The character sketch is so vivid that they stay with you long after the last page has been turned, the last word read.
Sundari narrates the story as a flashback, flitting between the present and the past. The book tells you the story of Sangeetha who is a young widow facing the wrath of being branded unlucky by the society and even by her own family.

I was one of the lucky people to get an early copy The Madras Affair and I beta read it many month ago :)

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.

STORYLINE: Interesting. A simple yet strong one, this story of Sangita and Gautam Sinclair is not all about falling head over heels for someone. Instead it conveys something more. It is a take on society, its aversion towards the hapless widow, false egos, selfish motives, outdated rituals, false notions, etc……… It is also a call to the victimized to stand up for their rights and enjoy life and love.
The story would have been another run-of-the-mill romance, another Mills & Boons book if the author had not very deftly interwoven the darker side of society into the story.

The ending was of course predictable but then I liked it. After the engrossing read if it were anything else it would surely be a disappointment.

CHARACTERIZATION: The characters both the main and secondary or supporting ones are well-developed with all their imperfections. While one can’t help loving the cute Sandeep, one also can’t help hating Radha and her vile tongue. In fact one actually lives the characters as the scenes unfold. Hence it’s easy to empathize with them or hate them for their thoughts, their words their actions.

LANGUAGE: Simple, crisp and lucid. Yes there are a few typos here and there that need to be set right. But that’s no major hurdle to enjoying the book.

PACE: Perfect. It’s neither too slow nor too fast.

STYLE: Full marks to the Author’s narration style. It made the story not only interesting but engaging too.
