Finding Juliet by Toffee

61e1e-finding2bjuliet-2bcoverI received the book Finding Juliet by Toffee as a review copy from the author courtesy ‘The Readdicts Book Blog”. Thank you Janhvi and Srika.

The blurb:

An incredibly nice guy turns into an irresistible flirt and learns the fine art of seducing women. A hilarious and heart-warming novel with some surprising nuggets of wisdom.

The story:

This is Arjun’s story. Two months ago, he moved from Hyderabad to Bangalore. Other than Anjali, Krish is the only good friend he has in the new city. One day, after noticing that Arjun is upset, Krish takes him to a pub and Arjun tells him his entire love story and the book moves into flashback.

He talks about his childhood in Hyderabad, about Anjali, who has been his friend since the first day at school. He talks about getting into an engineering college, about making friends with Amit and Rohan, about falling for Shraddha, the first girl he loved, about his love for cricket. He then goes on to talk about getting rejected by Neha in college. All through Anjali egged him on, motivated him. He then talks about landing up a job in Hyderabad, and meeting Saakshi, Amit’s friend, who comes to Hyderabad from Vizag with whom he decides to part ways due to their disparities.

Krish gets him a makeover and helps Arjun come out of the depression and find his mate.

How does he do it? Read on to find out.

My take:

What a unique way to launch a book, chapter by chapter.  That too on android. You can read the book on the go. Only chink in the armour being, you need your device to be on line when you are reading the book.

A simple story, elaborately written. The story drags on about Arjun’s various escapades. The language and the plot are simple. Proper editing could have done wonders to the book.
