I really enjoyed reading this book. Even though I am well outside the targeted age segment, I found it very engaging - the story was well crafted and moves along apace, the characters are well delineated and the writing style makes for an east read. Also, the story is really very interesting. I do think that besides young readers, many others will really enjoy this book. And, I cant wait for the next adventure !
I seldom wish a book wouldn't end when it does. With Neha and The Nose I did just that.A long- standing fan of Enid Blyton I have caught myself wondering if Mallory Towers and Five Findouters would hold the same magic for me as they once did. The answer is yes..if you get Bridget Jones channeling Enid and getting inspired by PGWodehouse! Neha and The Nose is a wonderful effervescent read.And not just for the tweens.
The thirteen going on thirty precocious protagonist Neha is delightful and so is her counterpart-- The Nose... ..a verbose prosy young tweenager with a nose like a bloodhound for sniffing out wrongdoers in an unnamed boarding school replete with a siren and her acolytes, bullies and their acolytes. The writing bubbles with a sense of fun and the characters emerge loud and clear.The plot may be a little simplistic but who wants convolutions when you are relishing every line of sparkling humour and loving the characters.Great masterful writing Ruchika.

I wish this book was written when I was younger! Fabulously fleshed-out characters, intriguing plot, satisfying denouement. Cannot wait for my daughter to become a tween and read this. By which time, hopefully, there will be a series of Neha and the Nose...
A beautifully written book. Finally Indian children get their very own Nancy Drew. Its fun, funny, and keeps you fully engaged with the plot - important for a detective novel! Buy the book for the kids in your life.
