This is a travel book… atleast it declares itself to be one. I picked it up at some airport (don’t remember which one… Cochin, Mumbai, A’bad)… The preface tells you that this book is an attempt to trace the upcoming middle class and their mentality in the tier 2 and tier 3 cities of India.
I was lost in the beginning itself… it was more of a travelogue than anything else. The incidents in the book don’t shock or surprise. There is no learning. Maybe the way it is written does not bring out the thoughts behind the incidents.
The author was 25 yrs old when he published this book. It is quite obvious. I hope now he has written better and more mature books.
Avoidable. Borrow it from me if you want to read it.
