It was the time when Chetan baghat's Two State was released almost a couple of months ago I believe. I was hearing mixed reviews - the for Chetan Bhagat group who vouched the book has to be read and the anti Chetan Bhagat group which compared other Indian authors to CB's literature is of no standards.
But to me CB's book releases are like awaiting for one of those anticipated movie releases. I started reading this book after couple of my friends recommendation. I truly liked every bit of Two States. It is like a complete entertainer to me.
After reading it I'm whole heartedly recommending it to everyone. A couple of my friends who are never into the habit of reading books have borrowed my copy.
It was fun discussing the happenings in the book with my friends since most of them have moved to Chennai from various parts of North India and one specific friend who is a Punjabi .. It was total fun to hear their part of coming and settling in Chennai and how much they relate to the way they initially felt in this land of idly, sambar, vada..
I would rate it much better than 3 mistakes of my life and a little above 5 point some one, the other 2 writings of CB's that I have read.
