Relying solely on central protagonist's over reactions, the book is slow and does not achieve anything in terms of plot. Even if you ignore numerous grammatical and spelling mistakes, the confusing timelines and progression of the narrative will leave you dumbfounded. Amit turns out to be a whiner, and even though there are deliberate attempts to show him as a loser in order to illustrate his inner conflict, it comes off as contrived and superficial. There are too many incidents sprinkled through the narrative which have no connection with the main story line neither they contribute to any of the characters. In the end, they just add to the length of the book.
I am going with 1/5 for KV Gautam's 'Love in Crazy Times'. It is a book in which the lead character tries hard to do something of his life. There are good chances you will not feel the same about your life after reading the book. Even though it is only 150 odd pages long, it will seriously test your patience. Read at your own risk.
