We prefer not to use profanities in our N-zine posts, but this is the title of the book written by Mandar Kokate. It is his first novel, and it indeed leaves an impact on you; to an extent that when you read the last page of the book where the author promises to write a second book, you will say, "Oh Shit! Not again!".
Now, the book starts with a warning - "Beware before you read. You may die laughing." They forgot to add two words - "at yourself" - at the end of that warning!
The book title promised a humorous read, and I was going through the phase of grabbing each and every possible fiction novel written by Indian Authors, I picked it up and started reading it. The book started with a few cliched jokes and a twisted but predictable story line. But as it progressed, I was feeling more and more disgusted about it.
The Story revolves around the life of Raj, a middle class, good looking guy who loves everything that's porn. He gets all possible kind of fantasies even when he looks at his cousin sister or a married woman with 'huge assets'. He has four friends, one of them being his girlfriend. They laugh together on jokes (well, if you can call them jokes, that is), cry together, get in trouble on every possible occasion, meet every evening and disperse (yeah, that's the most frequently used term in the whole book).
Good parts of the book - it does end and you feel relieved as it did so.
Bad Parts - first and foremost, the book has many grammatical errors and spelling errors. The major drawback any book book can have is bad English. 'Trial' is spelt as 'trail', there are mistakes in case of using various tenses, 'lose' and 'loose' have been confused with each other and plenty of such errors which you CANNOT ignore.
All I want to say about the book is - "Oh Shit! Never Again!"
