Now That You're Rich! by Durjoy Datta, Maanvi Ahuja

Now That You're Rich! by Durjoy Datta, Maanvi Ahuja

Rating: 2.5 out of 5

ISBN (edition I've read): 9788192222646

Read between: 13-02-2013 to 16-02-2013

Review:
Now That You're Rich ... Let's Fall In Love... More than 75% of its buyers might have picked it by its title. But I picked it up for the top line on the cover, which read, 'Over 250,000 copies sold'. It must contain something special to attract such a huge response.

Plot:

Four twenty one year old overachieving nerds are about to leave their old lives behind - cheating boyfriends, tyrant parents, sad loe lives and backbiting friends. It is time for a new beginning.

One dream job.

Cars, big houses, expensive suits and pretty shoes, luxury vruises - the world awaits them! But is life perfect? Is money all what you need? What do you do when seniors pick on you, look down your cleavages, dump you with piles of workload and you live on endless cups of coffee and crates of beer? Out from college and into the real world, how does it change them? Does the scent of money lure them away from the bliss of friends and relationship?

In this age old battle between money and love, what wins this time?

My take on the book:
Perhaps, the sequel of the other book named, 'Of course I love you.. Till I Find Better...'. (You can find the review of that book, here...). I wonder where Durjoy finds the titles of his books. Witty, funny and crude ones. This one, unlike the other one, is not very raw and rugged. If the other one was wholly about college life and love story, this one is about corporate lives, relationships, pestering bosses, friendship and love. That is what the Indian readers - mostly, comprising of teens and youth - want to read.

Though the book is the sequel of the book - Of course I love you - there is little connection between the two books. The characters the new, the plot is new, the story is new, the book itself is new. Only the narrator remains the same - Deb. Deb is the lead character and the narrator of the other book. He is also the narrator of this story, but has very little of his role in this book. Though the story is the first-person narration of the character Deb, due to the deficiency of his character in the story, the story runs mostly like that of an thrid-person narration.

Witty, entertaining, funny, interesting at some times, boring at other, Now That You're Rich is a book to consider.

Recommendations:
To all those teens and youth of India. This is more entertaining to the youth than the elders....
