NO DEADLINE FOR LOVE by MANASI VAIDYA(book review)
August 16, 2011 § 6 Comments
Quick, exciting and entertaining.
I was rather shocked when an all pink book(at least on the outside) stared at me when I peeled the packing. Certain parts of my brain were screaming that this didn’t look good. But putting aside my prejudices about ‘chick lits’, I dared to go beyond and I certainly wasn’t disappointed.
The book is sensible, focused and well written. The book moves pretty fast and there is no lull! I quite like the way the author has managed to blend in the predicament faced by the protagonist even while she keeps at what she is doing. I like the fact that there is no attempt to try to challenge my senses in an obvious book- a well written story is worth reading, even if you already know it.
Megha comes out as a strong character. My only grouse is that she doesn’t seem to learn to control her temper- even towards the end. Megha though does realize what she really wants to do and along the way, falls in love.
Lots of fireworks and at no place do you find that the book is heading aimlessly- the author knows her ending and works towards that with ease and thrill. A ‘Metro Read’ I guess, is something you pick up for a train journey and one certainly expects excitement and action- the book gives you that.
Fast paced and entertaining, the book is worth a read, especially if you are a fan of the genre.
