Review: Varsha Dixit’s sequel to her debut novel, Right Fit Wrong Shoe, has all ingredients whipped in a good mix which contain zesty female protogonist, tall dark handsome who falls in love with the girl, the girl’s best friend and relationship complications. The book’s protagonist, Sneha, is a divorced single mother, who with the help of her best friend, is able to move past her unhappy marriage and raises her son in Mumbai. Her matchmaker friend keeps trying to set her up, but with little success. A string of incidents later, Sneha meets a man from her past who she despises, but gradually comes to love. Though the book’s theme is not new, the characters and incidents make it a page-turner. The book is has lots of slang. The characters deeply written to keep the story intriguing. Some sub-plots in the later half, are lengthy. The book has some glaring grammatical and editorial errors which are a huge turn off. Many of the situations and characters are so cliched that you get a feeling of deja vu more than once. Like Nikhil’s ex-wife (uncovered by Sneha) is a drug addict, Sneha’s son suddenly starts calling Nikhil Dad, as opposed to ‘Nik’ and the likes you know. You may like this book if you are a Chick-Lit genre fan. As for me, just a one-time read. But these flaws aside, the book is an interesting read and has many heartening moments.
I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.
