What is this book all about?

I Quit! Now What? is the story of  a marketing professional Nimisha who has been working continuously for 7 years in the same organization where she is not treated the way she deserves and is upset about the same. She is constantly burdened with too much of work, swarming office hours and routine presentations. She hardly has any time for herself at the end of the day. Even her weekends aren’t her’s to spend often taken by some official work or the other.

When a colleague flashes the glint of a golden sabbatical she hurls into it headfirst. After all, one has to find one’s calling at some point in one’s life.

So will the holiday miraculously change her life forever? Or will she go rushing back to her pocket money-generating job?

Review

This is the first time I have ever tried a chick-lit and this book was recommended to me by Sankalpita Singh from Book Geeks India. The writing is simple and easy to understand and there was no gloomy moment in this book.  The characters are an lovable lot where Nimisha’s personality is an appealing character to the reader. Her close group consists of her close friends, nieces and few fun colleagues too who lit and spice up the simple story.

The best part of the book is it is hilarious and cheery read. It also showcases the reality of the corporate world and the pro’s and con’s of taking a break.

What I did not like about this book?

The cover did not appeal me much. The cover of the book was a disappointment and it made me feel like a business read. The posters on the book just made me think how to grow up the ladder in the corporate world  or how to be an entrepreneur.

My Verdict

It is a pleasant read where you would laugh reading this book and an apt book in terms of entertainment quotient and I would recommend this book to all chick-lit lovers.

Rating: 4.5/5*

On a cold December morning, a white woman is found murdered in a cheap hotel in Paharganj, New Delhi.

Vicks Menon, an out-of-work journalist, is tipped off by the hotel’s receptionist and is the first to arrive at the crime scene, where he discovers a lead. It’s the bus ticket used by the dead woman two days earlier. But Vicks is battling personal trouble. He has no money, an alcohol problem, and a nearly broken relationship with Tonya, his estranged live-in partner, a clinical psychologist who specializes in profiling hardened criminals.

Moving in and out of the shadows, Vicks pushes his investigation harder as it takes him from Udaipur to Bangkok. On his side, for resources, he has a nameless intelligence operative, and to read minds, a lover who is beginning to trust him again. But above all, his instinct to stay inches ahead of death will be the key to his survival.

If Vicks lives, this is one story that will change his life forever.

Review

The title of the book fascinated me and the cover of the book is simple which I liked the most. The book kept me hooked till the end and I was not bored at all and I was curious to read how the mystery unfolded further. The characterization was done well.  The language was simple and lucid. The choice of the words which was used in between the book was good.

What I did not like?

The main killer Jamie was killed by a unknown person and the killer who killed the main killer was not mentioned which I felt was left incomplete. The first three words are capital in every chapter and there was incorrect sentence formation done which was a major turn off for me.

My Verdict

It is a good book to read if you are a crime/thriller lover with minor flaws.

Rating: 4/5

Review

The quality of the book and the pages is good. The language is simple and easy to understand. It gives you the lessons of life where it teaches good and bad about life. This book showcases happiness, sadness and emotions. The characters are strong and the author showcased the characters in a positive way.  The only thing which I did not like in this book is the cover and it was boring in the beginning of the book which was a major turn off for me. The book has a good ending with a strong message  No money can give you contentment and happiness. Do what your heart wants and what you will get would be priceless.

My Rating: 4/5*
