So here is my review :
The story is about four absolutely different characters - an author, a consultant, a driver who is Bollywood fan and a stranger they met while their adventurous trip to Gir forest. All the characters have different personalities and at some point they are contradictory to each other. The characters are very well woven.The story has all sort of essence that holds you curious about the next happenings. There is sensible humor and sarcasm which is entertaining us now a days.It's all about how your life would be if you think from different perspective and with some adventurous unplanned trips.I finished reading this in straight 4 days. If you want to read something unique this time apart from typical love stories and all then I seriously recommend this book.
For the author I must say a very unique writing style, and yes it helped me to increase my vocab too ;)
I would like to read more from you sir.
My ratings are : 4/5
Unique plot, strong characters, simple language, lots of fun make this book an instant pick for the readers.
The book revolves around 4 characters – an ominous writer, an eccentric consultant, a Bollywood aficionado and an environmentalist from England , who get on board to a journey full of twists and turns. The idiosyncrasies of each character and their well-rounded personalities stood out for me. I am a huge fan of good characters even if the story is average, but Shantanu’s narration and description kept me at the edge throughout. Loved the humor content and the small but applauding effort to name each chapter with quirkiness. The only place I would deduct some marks would be the cozy printing and the translucent paper which made it difficult to read – not the author but publisher please take note of this.
Loved his unique writing style and this book came as a wave of fresh air, after all the romantic novels I have been reading and reviewing since last few weeks. It is indeed one paradoxical, one-of-a-kind read and the vividness of his narration leaves a huge potential for this book to become a movie someday.

The main essence of the book that I could capture were some light life lessons such as insecurities , fear , failure and low and high points in one's life sugar coated in humor.
The writing style is totally bang on. The title itself is quirky and so are the names of the chapters. Some lines tickle your funny bones beyond control.
The cover , however , was a let down for me. The cover doesn't do justice to the amazingly written plot.
If you are looking for something hilarious and out-of-the box plot , pick this one up.
