A very well written, easy to understand and follow.

I just found the writing a tad too basic, although it did make for a fast read.

Chetan Bhagat truly captures the essence of India. He knows how to write and to turn every encounter into a hilarious circumstance. Reading this out to my mother, every moment she was splitting her sides from laughing so much. If you have a knowledge and love for Indian culture, you will sink into this book immediately.

This book is highly recommended for people with a love of India and its people.

Even if you are not so familiar with Indian culture, the book can be a rewarding experience and you will grow into it. There will definitely be things you can laugh a lot about.

" 2 states" was too good...story about a punjabi guy (author..)from delhi and a tamil brahmin gal who meet in IIMA...inevitable happens..and then rest of the story is how they convince the family on both sides..sounds familiar? its super funny tho for most part and good msg at the end.. highly recommended for a nice weekend read... if you liked "5 pt someone" ( 3 idiots) then u will defly love this one..

I liked the book overall, however some of the characters looked phony. Without giving too much about the book, the heroine of the book acted in a way that was not expected of the girl raised in a certain way by her strict parents and the fact that she was a very brilliant person. A great majority of educated Indian women of her caliber would not have act that way. This theme was repeated throughout the book.
The dialouges in the book were superb and the dipiction of the social life in different parts of India were described in immaculate details, which is possible only by a person with very deep observation skills.
Keep up the good work Chetan.

This is an illegal copy of the book. It is branded as being downloaded from a website which distributes books illegally. It is not formatted properly and has duplicate sections. Worst of all, the profits are going to some crook, not the author. :(

Not much story, boy meets girl, falls in love, parents disagree, everything ends well. Lots of prejudices against South Indians, mouthed as the opinion of bigots, but comes across as authors own perceptions. As usual for Bhagat's books, bad English and poor editing. Read Sydney Sheldon if you are looking for cheap romantic chick flicks.

Simple writing, right mix of humor,love & college life.

Typical Bollywood movie style.

Little over dose in making fun of South Indians (Tamil Brahmins) but as mentioned in the preface it should be taken in lighter sense to enjoy the novel.

Format: Paperback
I purchased Two States after it was chosen for a local South Asian book club I recently joined.
The book seemed more like a manuscript for a Bollwood movie and the story line also played
out that way with its ensuing romance and drama. Maybe because I am a US raised Indian American from a South Indian family I took offense to a lot of Bhagat's cheap potshots at Tamilian culture. I didnt like how it was portrayed. I suggest Bhagat
to write Bollywood movie scripts rather than novels for cheap entertainment that will never win an literary prizes.
