I enjoyed the book till I was half way through the book. But thenceforth, the book became the clichéd romantic lit with the overused formulas of triangular friendship entangled tale.
Three youngsters Sashank, Abhay and Unnati set out on an extraordinary trip in Abhay's Ford Ecosport. Idea, conceived by Abhay, to accomplish an adventurous trip of 10000 kilometers around India, with a list of twenty five places which represent our country's culture, heritage and beauty. While Abhay brushes up his talent with camera, Unnati lends her voice and face. The final nail is the selfies they take at the twenty five places with the number placard.
The roadtrippers' experiences at different places are interesting to read. Author has provided several tips as what to do and what not but when the storyline took a romantic twist, the focus was shifted from the places and landmarks. With perspicuous narration, dexterous character craft and unique theme, author has succeed in hooking the readers to the book.
There were a few offensive statements, atleast that's what I felt. "It's difficult to see a man cry". Why man only? What about women?
The terms like potato, fatty etc could have been avoided in the narration at least.
The story ended in a good note. Nothing unexpected but simple and sweet anyways.
This review is in return of a free book from author paradise
Starting at Corbett Park and ending at Jama Masjid Delhi, what looked like a normal get away changed their life giving them new reasons to live for.
Sashank found the courage to fulfill his sole wish and Unnati found her love life sorted. Abhay, apart from gaining life experiences on the trip, gained something more precious than all, his family.
Apart from life lessons, they also have tonnes of fun, creating all sorts of nuisance that youngsters do. Some crazy, some pleasant, some eerie and some serious enough to have shoved them into jail.
They find new opportunities, robbers and wild animals as well.
The roadtripping isn't the only thing that the author had written about, he also writes about some devious thoughts that make Abhay lose his sanity as well.
The book has a casual start and the author keeps dropping hints that builds anticipation to explore the story behind those hints.
The language is simple and easy to grasp and the book happens to be a light read.
Ratings- 2.5 out of 5 stars
At first I had the view that the opinions of the author about the places the trio/duo visit could be taken into consideration by anyonr interested in a tour of same sorr but his review on the Jagannath Temple of Puri made me reconsider my view. That place is not just about the three deities, it's about feasting your eyes on the majestic architecture of the temple along with the 33 crore idols craved on the temple walls (Yeah you read right, that's the number)
The place has a museum, a botanical garden, a series of mysterious steps with rumours that lead to nowhere, numerous small temples within the temple and yet the characters in the book call it not wortg a visit, I would really appreciate if the author revisits the place and hires a Panda( Though they are expensive) to let them be aware of the rich heritage that place beholds. It can raise some serious controversy lest some devotees of the temple come across the book.
I cannot say the book to be informative anymore regarding the travel as I couldn't agree with the opinion about the one place I have visited.
The reviews on the food can surely be taken into consideration as I have confirmed the places from a few local mates. Especially, Hotel Paradise and its biriyani.
The chapter "Lama for life" is the best chapter in the entire book and I can suggest the book to anyone who reads just for the sake of them reading the chapter. Really appreciate the author for adding the chapter in the book.
Reviewed by- Banaja Prakashini
The description of the 25 tourist spots that the protagonists visit are interesting. They do some outrageous stuff wherever they go, which makes room for comic situations in the book.
The three characters are distinctly different from each other and they do have shades of grey. Yet as the journey progresses, you tend to like the characters. My favorite character of the book is Unnati. Her descriptions of the places are lively and her analysis of relationships is very justified.
The transformation of the characters as they progress through the journey is interesting and the philosophical angles in the book are pleasant to read.
I will look forward to more works by Mohit Goyal!
