I read Five Point Someone authored by Chetan Bhagat. Small & simple story, WELL TOLD. It is the narration that stands out more than anything else. The lucid yet piquant style of the author succeeds in etching the characters and the plot in the reader's mind. Right through the simple narrative the writer guides an undercurrent of hilarity and sarcasm aimed at the IIT education system and self important professors. A student of any college can empathise with the characters and would have themselves had an experience of surviving amongst characters as described in the novel. It would also serve as a reminiscent of those college days where one would have grappled with the tough choice of whether to enjoy the freedom of life or labour for better academic scores.
Heard that the author has published another novel titled "One night at the call centre." I need to grab it.
