    "captivating story."

    it helps when an Indian story is narrated by an Indian. there are some colloquial words and sentences being used, which did not come out well. The story is beautiful and the narration with its limits was also flawless.

    "Average story and average narration"
    What would have made Half Girlfriend better?

    Narration by someone familiar with Hindi, as there are Hindi dialogues and words used in the book. For example, a dialogue like "Deti hai to de varna katle" - the dialogue that changes Riya's attitude towards Madhav would have sounded better if it had the necessary emotion it required.


    What was most disappointing about Chetan Bhagat’s story?

    A very average typical Bollywood like story. Initially I was confused if I was listening to "2 States", previous novel from Chetan Bhagat.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Christopher Simpson?

    Considering there are lot of Indian references including a few dialogues/words in Hindi, someone who is familiar with the language would have done a better jon


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Story
    "Take any Bollywood movie script"

    Okay, before you dismiss that it is coming from a hater, let me assure you, you are reading the review of someone who read all the five earlier books of Chetan Bhagat in matter of 1 day. But, his books(Fiction) are getting similar by each addition.

    The story is just so predictable. A small town guy gets admission in a big league school that even the daughter of a big businessman attends. Well, you know how the adage works, Opposites attract. So, this rich, young girl gets acquainted and becomes best friend with the small towner. Unaware of the finesses of relationships, the guy gets misguided by his friends into thinking that its not love if the girl doesn't want to sleep with you. So, Their friendship breaks off.
    As they try to rekindle their friendship, the girl decides to drop out and get married. The guy moves on only to find the girl after a couple of years. Now, they share several moments as the guy helps the girl move into her new apartment and the girl helps the guy through an important assignment of his life. On the big day, the girl leaves the guy again.

    At this point, you might be wondering, where have I heard this before? Let me put your mind at ease, EVERY BOLLYWOOD MOVIE EVER MADE.

    Chetan Bhagat, I have immense respect for you after reading all the aspirations/ideas you have to make India Awesome. I guess at this point you are not writing books to attract book worms but to attract Bollywood deals for movie spin offs.
