You speak English. Not typical of someone who runs a school in the back of beyond. I saw him swallow to keep his composure. The doorbell startled us. The waiter shifted the journals to keep the sandwich tray on the table. A few sheets of the journal fell to the floor. I offered him a tomato and cheese sandwich. He ignored me and rearranged the loose sheets of paper.

He nodded, his eyes still on the pages of the journal. But why have you brought them here? Maybe they will be useful to you. A part of me wanted him out of my room as soon as possible.

His gaze remained directed at the floor. He stood up, presumably to leave. He had not touched his sandwich—which was okay, because I could eat it after he left. He scribbled his phone number on a piece of paper and kept it on the table. Please take them with you. You can. It took me a few seconds to realize what had happened.

I picked up the journals and ran out of the room, but the sole working lift had just gone down. I came back to my room, irritated by his audacity. Dumping the notebooks and the slip with his phone number in the dustbin, I sat on the bed, a little unsettled. I switched off the lights and lay down in bed. I had to catch an early morning flight to Mumbai the next day and had a four-hour window of sleep.

Who was this guy? Questions popped up: What the hell is a half-girlfriend? Eyes wide open, I lay in bed, staring at the little flashing red light from the smoke detector on the ceiling.

The journals bothered me. Sure, they lay in the dustbin. However, something about those torn pages, the dead person and her half-boyfriend, or whoever he was, intrigued me.

The suggestion: But thirty minutes later, I switched on the lights in my room, fished out the journals from the dustbin and opened the first volume.

Most pages were too damaged to read. I tried to make sense of what I could. The first page dated back nine years, to 1st November Riya had written about her fifteenth birthday in Delhi. I flipped through the sheets as I tried to find another readable page. Nov 06, Nikhat Hetavkar marked it as gave-up-on Shelves: I've read every Chetan Bhagat book if we can call those sentences lumped together a book only to argue with my friends as to why I absolutely depise his writing.

So again a CB novel arrives on the market.

And every social media page is flooded with my friends I may have to disown them after this exclaiming "Chetan Bhagat - My favourite author" "The best author" and likewise idiotic comments.

After flipkart taunting me for weeks, I finally decided to pick up the book and form a well developed opinion about the hate this stupid title with its smug announcement of its bollywood movie along with the book release inspire in me.

Thankfully this time I did not actually download the book. I borrowed it from a friend. I looked up to see my bookshelf staring at me and obviously judging me. I dont have a hyper active imagination for nothing Nope, I decided. Life's way too short to read shitty books like these when there are so many great books I still need to read as my shelf reminded me not so gently. Just plain NO.

Life's way too short. And I am not picking this book up again even if it means never getting to correct moronic idiots in their rant about the brilliance of CB. I am DONE. May 28, Nu-Jahat-Jabin rated it did not like it.

So,looking forward to his next novel so that I can feel that "half girlfriend" is a better one.

Knowing that you will never be able to "un-read" it. Knowing that you could have spent that time reading something else I would suggest reading a user manual, it at least makes sense. Why is it that people can't get over the "A guy and a girl can never be friends" crap? Also, this book is wrong on so many levels!

Why would you do something even after the lady repeatedly says 'No'. It is never a yes. I can't believe the author who claims to be a "feminist" could write something like this. Chetan Bhagat has fallen to new found lows to write a book only in hopes of making it into a masala blockbuster movie. View all 5 comments. Aug 12, R. Bisht rated it did not like it. Even if you don't want to read Rushdie or Jhumpa Lahiri there are select few who write contemporary, interesting stories! I'd personally recommend Zero Defect if you want a fast paced, and thought provoking read.

There is also a lesser known among indians book Shantaram though not written by and indian author is an interesting contemporary book set in Mumbai. So, open your mind and read something better for change ; Dec 03, Pooja rated it did not like it Recommends it for: My enemies.

With all due respect, only Half Star. Dec 03, Navaneeta rated it did not like it. The sense of achievement that fills me up as I move to mark this book as "I am finished" is enormous. I am finally, actually finished with Bhagat and his scripts. You see Chetan Bhagat and I go back a long way.

Bhagat was like this cool guy with whom I can be myself when we met with Five Point Someone. Those days when I was immersed in the sadness of Velutha in the backwaters of Ker The sense of achievement that fills me up as I move to mark this book as "I am finished" is enormous. Those days when I was immersed in the sadness of Velutha in the backwaters of Kerala or fighting a losing battle with Sydney Carton in the streets of Paris or just dying in the quarantined city of Oran, Ryan and Hari seemed like the best friends just waiting for me out there.

I felt obliged to read each book that Bhagat wrote. As he kept writing, our relationship changed. I became more of an elder sister indulging little Chetan's "i-am-so-proud-of-myself" moments.

His criticism of Rushdie made me cringe as did his "superior" opinions regarding boring old vultures engaged in English literature. Gradually little Chetan became the most influential person in free India after Ekta Kapoor.

I watched his decline growth with amazement. Someone somewhere had said something stupid about how it's impossible to fool all the people all the time or some such nonsense, yet look at this wonderful literary entrepreneur who just keeps on surging ahead, breaking all the taboos! People today are reading more than they ever did!!

I guess as a science and management student, Bhagat internalised and based his empire on Einstein's famous premise about human stupidity. Through his works, he propounds this basic tenet again and again. Here's one for Science; take that you English Puritans! As to Half Girlfriend, well, the girl is sexy and hot in her shorts. She is equally sexy and hot in salwar-kameez.

She is even more disturbingly hot when she's sick in bed. She is immensely alluring in a saree. She is sleazier than a Honey Singh song when in a dress. She is of course very beautiful and sexy and hot. She is a girl. She doesn't want to have sex despite being so sexy and hot. I think her name is Riya. That's redundant. She has wonderful legs limbs. The End. View all 7 comments. Oct 26, Shoa Khan rated it did not like it Shelves: Chetan Bhagat has over-exploited way too many stereotypes in this book.

The stuff about girls giggling senselessly at just about anything a rich guy says is especially repulsive. Aug 11, Vaibhav Anand rated it did not like it. I haven't read this, nor do I intend to. Funny that Goodreads allows people to rate books that haven't even released. View 2 comments. Oct 07, Aastha Swaroop rated it really liked it. It is one of those books you just pick up and then cannot put down.

Mainly because you want believe in it. You want to believe that such love still exists.. I love how Chetan Bhagat writes. He does not care about using heavy vocabulary like most of the Indian authors which personally breaks my interest in reading because referring a dictionary every second line is no fun.

He relates to today's youth and his stories tota It is one of those books you just pick up and then cannot put down. He relates to today's youth and his stories totally reflect that. Do not read this book if you are one of those who read to add to their literary shelves Ayn Rand or Khalid Housseini Oct 07, Vineet rated it did not like it Shelves: Throughout the novel, Bhagat mesmerizes you with careful written description of things.

Thank you for telling me. Also, they are downright hilarious. All the scenes are so overdone in books and cinemas of the past that you feel they are plagiarized, like girlfr Throughout the novel, Bhagat mesmerizes you with careful written description of things. All the scenes are so overdone in books and cinemas of the past that you feel they are plagiarized, like girlfriend is reading but the sun is on her, so you block the sun, girlfriend removes a rice grain from your face so you put more grains on it.

The dialogues, The dialogues are so unengaging. Every dialogue is followed by the meaning of it. I mean if someone is concerned, happy, sad, anything, you should be able to make it out with his dialogue. Bhagat is so unconfident in his dialogues that most of them are followed by what the dialogue meant, he throws it on your face, look he is concerned now, look he is hurt now.

Also, I think Bhagat self assumes that he is the voice of this generation and he raises all sorts of issues through this book. These issues, go nowhere, nothing is further mentioned. And why this title? Just because Riya says this once, we get this title? This title is like the click-bait headlines we see online, a marketing gimmick, so you get curious.

Not even a proper meaningful para. In the end, this book is lazily written with a single objective that it is picked by some movie producer. It feels like a screenplay, nothing else.

As a book, it is so poor and devoid of content, filled with the most generic of description.

The detailing that the book uses are so stupid, like when Madhav is on the station, he tells us he ate puri-aloo. Yeah, so what?

Dukes Prefer Blondes

Is it a essential thing to say? This review was edited to be spoiler-free. To read my full review, head over to- http: May 20, Amit Mishra rated it liked it. This is the story of a poor guy and a rich girl. The boy falls in love with Riya but she told to me believe that I can not be your girlfriend only I can be your half girlfriend.

And from the story begins. In a nutshell, It's a romantic novel that has a certain twist and turns but ends happily as all Inidna movie does. His writings are not different from the script of an Indian cinema.

However, the novel exposes the hypocrisy of our society. How essential English has become in a country where the This is the story of a poor guy and a rich girl. How essential English has become in a country where the national language is Hindi. It exposes the two face of rich society as well. This one is the best from Chetan Bhagat in my opinion. Mar 26, Trishia Nashtaran rated it did not like it.

Oct 01, Sailesh Mohanty rated it it was ok. I read it. Or rather I survived it. It was delivered today, nicely wrapped up with a cool bookmark and that is where all the good things about reading this book ends. I am certain this book will be a blockbuster, a game changer of sorts and Chetan Bhagat will continue to dish out overtly dramatized Bollywood scripts as novels. I am also certain that Chetan Bhagat uses a software that does the scripting for him..

All he does is probably enter the lead character names, the location of the story an I read it. All he does is probably enter the lead character names, the location of the story and the software churns out story after story till CB decides this is it. Almost like one of those Facebook apps that let's us know which Game of Thrones character we are and we keep on clicking it till we get a character of our choice.

Stephen's College. The story follows a horny lad from Bihar who gets raunchy whenever he is in close proximity with a girl, who looks down upon his roots and his home state in almost every second page and who has this burning desire to kiss, anytime anywhere. His love interest is Riya, a confused, rich girl. So confused and so rich that for reasons best known to Chetan Bhagat she drops out of St Stephen's after managing to get in.

And why? To get married to an older, richer guy who also happens to be the same guy she has tied Rakhi to for years. Clearly, Chetan Bhagat's book dishing software likes Game of Thrones.

She is also averse to kissing, for odd pages the guy tries to get her to kiss him, on rooftops, in parks, in theatres, in boys hostel room, basically every place a horny pervert deems appropriate for a little smoochy woochy. But her answer is always no.. Such is the frequency of her rejections that as a reader you would start wondering Its only a kiss'.

So after pages of a very mediocre love story, it ends in the most Chetan Bhagat-ish way possible A kid!! Little Shyam makes an appearance in the last page. At this point you, as a reader would be aware of certain facts about Chetan Bhagat, he loves horny dudes, he loves drama, he loves impromptu making out sessions and he loves happy endings, so much so that he scripts the most ridiculous twist and brings a character out from the dead.

Ekta Kapoor move over New player is in town. What Chetan Bhagat does not love, apparently, is a gripping story line.

May be I am being too harsh, may be he has the potential to be India's Murakami. But if you base your novel on plot twist with the ridiculously lecherous line 'dena hai toh de warna kat le fuck me or fuck off ' and then spend the rest of the novel trying to pass it off as unrequited love It just does not cut it for me. Devoid of humor and a cat mouse chase that's more predictable than Poonam Pandey's next striptease, this one of the worst books I have laid my hands on in recent times.

Thats 3 hours and bucks I am never getting back Verdict - Wait for the movie instead Atleast it will have some cool songs and Alia Bhatt. Oct 03, Shishir Chaudhary rated it liked it.

Ordinary life is undervalued, as G K Chesterton puts it in his The Defense of Penny Dreadfuls , and is reflected quite strangely in the amount of hatred that popular fiction, in the form of paperbacks, attract. His work is openly termed as trash, vulgar and even an insult to literature.

His work and likewise many other paperbacks - the Rs. But some of these are not trash, vulgar and insults to literature — these are the actual "centers of a million flaming imaginations". I read Chetan Bhagat's books for their entertainment quotients, and this book is high on it.

And if one takes up this book without a Literary Snob's judgmental hat irrespective of whether or not she has actually read what she believes to be good literature , she would conclude that this is indeed a good story. This book reads more like a screenplay of a Hindi movie, a bit exaggerated but entertaining one at that. The writing isn't bad either - it is simple, normal, ordinary, everyday but not bad.

To dismantle the pre-conceived notions of many, it is not a funny book with a hilarious plot as the title suggests - It is one serious love story with one of the most flawed protagonists I have come across. And that is where the problem lies. Bhagat, amidst all the proceedings, gets the characterization wrong. So, while you had started rooting for Madhav, one dialogue of his comes up and you decide to hate him for the rest of the book.

But then again you see a better side of him and you end up being confused about him. The same holds for his mother, Rani Sahiba. But the gem of the story is definitely the half-girlfriend - Riya Somani. Bhagat comes up with a nice portrayal of a troubled poor rich girl from Lutyens' Delhi with her own set of ambitions. Right from the beginning you know she is the star of the story.

I read it in 6 hours with an overnight break in between and those were some good 6 hours spent. Recommended, if you like and are not judgmental of the better Hindi romantic movies.

Oct 20, Avanthika rated it did not like it. The problem is, when I want something, I will have all of it for myself or I won't bother to give a damn about it. Half of that particular thing, according to me is pointless and useless. Say for example, my grades, either they'll be "A" or "E". Strictly I won't stand in-between the two extremes. Stevens, New Delhi. There you are putting a intermission board, after which she returns divorced. And the rest of the story is what happens in most of Yash Chopra films and Aashique Please See, I don't know in which category I've to put this thing called a "relationship" between the two into.

I feel naive to call that a relationship at the first place. D Dear Chetan, you're not a national sensation anymore when it comes to contemporary writings. There are writers who are striking the chord at the right place with their simple-witty way of tale-telling. Stop annoying the readers with no-so-catchy storyline like these.

You're seriously annoying. View all 9 comments. Oct 01, Khushboo rated it did not like it Shelves: How do I rate a book when I just skipped a major portion of it. I pretty much skipped the new York portion coz I already knew how it would end.

What is love! And by making English the subject of the book which hardly it is as the girl never has a problem with his english and its a love story in the end, CB got an extra excuse to write badly. Oct 01, Shilpa bagla rated it it was ok. The only reason I am giving this book two stars is because I am a huge fan of Chetan Bhagat and love his books but this book was nothing more than a waste of time and a huge disappointment.

There was not much of a story plot and the entire plot felt as though it was overly exaggerated.

I love Chetan Bhagat's writing but in this book it felt too monotonous and the story,the writing everything felt as though I have already read it several times which I probably did in all his other books!! The The only reason I am giving this book two stars is because I am a huge fan of Chetan Bhagat and love his books but this book was nothing more than a waste of time and a huge disappointment. The characters were really hard to connect to and it was difficult to sympathize with them.

I felt as though I was reading a plot straight out from some cheesy hindi movie.

I merely tolerated the book for the sake of finishing it. What I don't understand is why does all his books have to have a beautiful girl who doesn't want to be tied up in a relationship or is too confused and a guy who is either shy or feels way out of league of the girl and yet falls in love with her at first sight!! Nothing about the book feels original or makes you fall in love with the characters. So all I can say that this book is a major waste of time!!
