About the Author

Chetan Bhagat is the author of nine blockbuster books. These include seven novels—Five Point Someone (2004), One Night @ the Call Center (2005), The 3 Mistakes of My Life (2008), 2 States (2009), Revolution 2020 (2011), Half Girlfriend (2014) and One Indian Girl (2016)—and the non-fiction titles What Young India Wants (2012) and Making India Awesome (2015). Chetan’s books have remained bestsellers since their release. Several of his novels have been adapted into successful Bollywood films.

The New York Times called him the ‘the biggest-selling English language novelist in India’s history’. Time magazine named him amongst the ‘100 most influential people in the world’, and Fast Company, USA, listed him as one of the world’s ‘100 most creative people in business’.

Chetan writes columns for leading English and Hindi newspapers, focusing on youth and national development issues. He is also a motivational speaker and screenplay writer.

Chetan quit his international investment banking career in 2009 to devote his entire time to writing and make change happen in the country. He lives in Mumbai with his wife, Anusha, an ex-classmate from IIM-A, and his twin boys, Shyam and Ishaan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mr Bhagat - Average Writing Skills | Extraordinary Marketing Skills
Reviewed in India 🇮🇳 on October 11, 2018
Let me give you a brief reason why I bought this book:

1. A Girl in Room 105 - A Girl. A Room Number and Mr Chetan Bhagat - I bet any man would buy this book to help himself when the internet connection is down.
2. The Cover - Are you kidding me? At first, I googled who the girl is in the cover but was met with nothing but denial.
3. Mr Bhagat released a book trailer was better than an average Bollywood movie.
4. Whenever I search a book on Amazon, this book shows in the list of Promoted Products. No problem though. He has the money. He can do anything with it.

The above 4 factors were what enforced a simple man like me to buy this book. And I was a tad bit disappointed with the fact that this book has got nothing to do with s**, instead, Mr Bhagat uses profound terms like "making love".

Coming to the review,
This book is what one calls a childish thriller. I mean it has those Bollywood types go-gaga love and romance between two families that are eventually never going to accept each other. It has elements of suspense in it which is, unfortunately not that difficult to guess (at least for me) along with the antagonist being totally unpredictable until the end of the very story. Special emphasis has been made on certain elements like childish writing skills, the reason being Mr Bhagat wants every Indian to read it (and cuss about it eventually). However, to be honest, if you have got a 100 bucks (it will eventually sell at that price), I suggest you buy this book and read it when you are too lazy to watch movies like Race 3.

By the way, Mr Bhagat, do you have Zara's number?
I think I have fallen in love with her more than Keshav Rajpurohit.

A first timer is a first timer,
From the writer of one of the most enjoyable love stories, comes this new Crime thriller, rather being sold as an "Unlove" story.

It's a Murder Mystery, weaved around the tissues of love, connecting all the characters with one major plot pillar, and each other.

When you start, you might get a Deja-Vu feel of Half Girlfriend, but hold on to it, it'll change.

It will get better, I wonder why Chetan Bhagat never ventured into this arena before, he should have.
Apart from a few moments, where you feel the plot could have been tighter, and the conversations, a bit more crispier and intense between subjects, it's an overall nicely led to the mystery reveal type of story.

The result is slightly unexpected, so the ending is not bad at all.

So, I can summarise it this way:
"A love story writer, ventured into crime thriller arena, and yes, didn't disappoint."

If you're willing to purchase it for a casual or travel read, go for it.

But don't expect Agatha Christie, Paula Hawkins or Gillian Flynn type of a thriller.

Thank You for reading the review, if you find it useful, don't forget to mark it so.
