Oh shit, not again

‘Oh shit, not again’
A book written by Mandar Kokate

An interesting title and a rather wacky one, I thought. This is how the book grabbed my attention. The cover page looked innovative and the synopsis was intriguing I was feeling desperate to read the book. A train journey on a drizzling morning helped me get hold of the book

Raj… Aarthi… Sam… Andy… Seema…

As the book began, I rather liked it…

But then, by the time I had reached half way…
I sighed... Then closed my eyes and uttered “Oh shit, not again’”

The book is shitty!!

It is a story of a pervert Raj and his four neighbors cum friends. The book narrates various incidents that lead to love… trouble and finally wealth! Then there is a Sejal who wants to take revenge against her husband who is into extra marital affair by getting into one herself. And the key factor that drives the narrative is… Well, I don’t want to get into that detail as of now.

Really dude… Its pathetic…

Raj says he loves his neighbor/friend Aarthi… Fantasises his server… Commits to a married woman Sejal and makes out with cousin… And he says he loves them all!! Is this called love? I am so sorry… A big-big disappointment…

The plot is ridiculous. The protagonist has only one thing in mind. As a reader you feel disgusted and nauseated. Thanks to the overdose of cheap scenes and narratives.

I say the book is a shit…
Try to stay away from it…
I think the author was aware of the fact too…
That’s why he named the book so!!!

As many thumbs down as possible!!!

  1. Dear Sir/Madam,

    I am the great Indian righter and am pleased to inform you that I am another entrant contributing to the plethora of useful and profound fiction that is being churned by so many talented Indian writers who have taken the bowels out of the vowels and are interested in expressing themselves by any means possible.

    Now that the big publishers have also pandered to this molestation of the language, I take delight in telling you that my book based on my true life incident titled, "I HAD TOO MANY LOVE STORIES. NOW I AM DECLARED MENTAL IN 2 STATES" is already a self-proclaimed internationally national best seller.

    Please be kind as to review the same.



    I am in anticipation, for ever and ever,
