#BookReview Half Girlfriend by Chetan Bhagat

About The Book

Let’s start with the story of the book. It goes like this….

Once upon a time, there was a Bihari boy called Madhav. He fell in love with a girl called Riya.

• Madhav didn’t speak English well. Riya did.

• Madhav wanted a relationship. Riya didn’t.

• Riya just wanted friendship. Madhav didn’t.

• Riya suggested a compromise. She agreed to be his half girlfriend.

Story Over and out.

My Thoughts

My first thought was that Mr Bhagat misunderstood me as some big Bollywood movie director and gave me a script to read, obviously to make a movie. But to my disappointment, it’s a book.

I seriously don’t know what to write in this review. The book is the definition of half baked story with quarter bake characters.

The only good thing in the book is the language is super simple, so anybody can read it. Apart from that, I really didn’t like the book.

His second book was 'One Night At A Call Center' and this too was a great success.

 His next novel has cricket as the major theme. It is named 'Three Mistakes of My Life'. His fourth book is named 'Two States'.
