Hi Everyone, I read Shaiju Mathew's Knocked Up in just one sitting... hours flat I was through with the book becoz I couldnt keep it down...It took me back to my childhood days that were spent in a small town in Kerala...Shaiju Mathew was able to touch my heart with his writing and also took me down to my old days... I went so nostalgic that I searched for my close friends who had lost touch with me on Facebook...This book if made into a serial or movie like Malgudi Days or Swami...will really do good as it has the potential to strike a cord with every age group... The language used is very simple so people searching for Shakespeare will be disappointed but a common average Indian can definitely find the book easy on his brain to read without reffering dictionary.... I am so glad that it is not like the usual IIM or IITian turned graduate to an author saga...its about teenagers, their issues, problems, friendships, love life all put up into a hillarious tale...Every Chapter had something to laugh about... I have already bought 3 books from Reliance Book Store for gifting my long lost friends and have also ordered from flipkart for a author signed copy... Shaiju Mathew U made my day.... Thank you Vince Chacko --Flipkart.com
Hello everyone, After reading all the positive and negative reviews here I was tempted to take a risk and buy this book from flipkart. After reading the book I can seriously say that the book is just mind blowing. The humor and situations presented here are situational and not forced, moreover the narrative is so simple it doesn't give too much of stress to your brains. After a long time I had a hearty laugh reading this book. Full marks to Mr. Mathew who has chosen a different story to tell which is far from the IIM and IIT students escapades. This book reminds me of the Adrian Mole series that I happened to read few years back. If the author had written it in a diary format it would have been more impressive although this doesnt mean the narrative style used here is bad at all. All the characters are well developed and each character has been given equal footage. The most pleasing characters that I felt connected in this story is Prateik and his girlfriend Rupa's who add to the extra humour to the already mad cap romcom. The quality of the book is excellent how I wish they had released the hardbound copies too so that I could keep one in my collection. This book is worth a read and Shaiju Mathew is a name to watch out for... Hail the new Chetan Bhagat of the coming decade. --Flipkart.com
Friends are the most precious thing in your life and that theme has been highlighted in this light hearted comedy. The trio of Sid, Ron and Prateik resembles my group of friends i.e. Akhil, Deepak and I. We three read the book one after the other and kept on laughing at the situations these three friends keep on falling into, which was similar to our childhood days. Knocked Up took us down the memory lane and we really thought as if the book was inspired by our life. Good work Shaiju Mathew for giving us this story that we found similarities with our life. We three want to wish you all the luck and we are looking forward to the sequel to Knocked Up hope the next book will also take us back in time. Keep up the good work and yes 'Friendship Zindabad'. --Flipkart.com
