The narration is very coherent and impressive. The strong imagination and ability to put forth it in an impressive manner of the author are reflected in the book. I am pleased to read this. The plotline is so interesting that even I fell in love with the genie. His character has been portrayed deliberately. The character of Darren signifies the real image of a true friend as well as a true and selfless love. On one hand, Daisy struggles with her predicaments while on the other hand, the two men in her life make every effort to make her life easier and happier. This book is a gem in my bookshelf for its uniqueness and magic!

Daisy had no idea what was in the store for her when she uncovered the priceless reward concealed in a miscellaneous bottle; a super sexy genie that would pull the rugs below her feet. " Khalil Muwahid" the genie owed daisy his gratitude for freeing him from the trap. He generously asked her for three wishes without holding any grudges against her. Gradually there was a strong connection between them, the bond of love. Also, the rules of Djinn world were amended for their love, where Daisy wasn't supposed to ask for the third wish since they could be together, everlastingly. But on the horns of the dilemma , Daren, Daisy’s best friend’s life was at threat. Does she use the third wish to save Darren? Or does she save her love?
Durriya Kapasi has done a great work with the plot which is unique in itself. The whole plot was interesting and the language used in narration was simple and easy to understand. All the Characters' description were narrated very well. The novel has every element like love, romance, friendship, dilemma, etc. which is there in every good novel, etc. And during the novel, everyone must have thought what if I had a genie in my life too. The novel got interesting with every pages and i completed it in a single go. I enjoyed it. The repetition of the process of flying could have been avoided. The blurb revealed the suspense element of the novel.
Looking forward to read the Second Part of the novel.

Daisy had no idea what was in store for her when she uncovered the priceless reward concealed in a miscellaneous bottle; a super sexy genie that would pull the rugs below her feet. Khalil Muwahid, the genie owed Daisy his gratitude for freeing him from the trap. He generously asked her for three wishes without holding any grudges against her. Gradually there was a strong connection between them, the bond of love. Also, the rules of Djinn world were amended for their love, where Daisy wasn’t supposed to ask for the third wish since they could be together, everlastingly. BUT on the horns of Dilemma, Darren, Daisy’s best friend’s life was at threat. Does she use the last wish to save Darren? Or does she save her love?
The loss of her grandmother opens an entrance in Daisy’s life for a genie. Enters Khalil Bin Muwahid, hot as compared to the hell fire and filled with gratitude on being freed, he grants Daisy three wishes.
The eye finds it’s candy and the heart finds it’s lover and Daisy falls for the dominating and gorgeous being descended to provide a shoulder to her tiring life.
Daisy slips out a wish by mistake and that sets them on a tiny journey away from the human world where she learns the ways of the Djinns .
The more time she spends with him, the more he dwells in her mind , making her worry about the fact that a human and a Djinn cannot be together.
With the second wish granted and the last wish remaining, Daisy’s best friend Darren struggles for life in a hospital bed. Making it a tough decision for Daisy whether to choose friendship or love, for the genie would have to leave after all the three wishes are asked for.
Once upon a genie is a pure chicklit and surely appeals to the target audience.
The plot is unique among Indian authors and is fast paced, thus giving a lot of content to read in just 182 pages.
The author Durriya Kapasi has done a great job at the storytelling as it’s a chicklit and requires some description in order to make it demanding among the young ladies who would be cribbing for some romance and the author has excelled at providing it.
If a person ever had a taste for fan fictions, this book is gonna leave them blushing for sure.
I loved the way the book ends giving the hint for a sequel which probably has some genie world action. (That’s what I dreadfully hope.)
Grammer Nazis are gonna love this book, it just has two printing errors ( including the double printing of about 12-18 pages).
The cover is classy along with the blurb that is informative as it could be and that’s the kind of blurb that helps people at having a clear sight of whether they want the book or not.

The book aims at a particular section of age so it might not be enjoyed by everyone who reads it. So if you love chicklits, Once Upon A Genie is THE book for you.
I expected a bit more of magical description of the Djinn land than given.
There were a few places which needed a bit of description in order to avoid confusion, for example, everyone knew that Daisy’s grandmother was a good witch but that couldn’t be something that a reader can accept without any revelation on her past.
