Book Review: One Night @ The Call Center
This is a book that starts off with a great promise, even the few lines summary in the back cover page interests you. But it fails to deliver completely.
It is a story about the lives of few individuals working in a Call Center. This story is apparently told to the writer by a girl whom he meets in the train. It starts off fairly well, but loses track very soon, and goes on and on about their relationships with one another. It is almost as if, the writer wanted to write some sort of a relationship book. More than 50% of the book deals with that - something u were not expecting from a book with this title !!
The last few chapters of the book are unbelievably bad. Almost as if the writer was in tremendous hurry to finish it. After reading this, there is no interest left to read an earlier book by this same author: Five Point Someone.
- The book is correctly priced only at Rs 95.
- Not a very big book, easy to read (large fonts).
- Storyline, not very good. Too much focus on discussing relationships of all sorts. You start wondering - whats going on !
- The end is bad, and not well-thought out. Rushed finish.
Can anyone write anything and be called an author? By these standards some of the bloggers i know are Shakespear in the making :)
Not a new book.. this one - so you will find more reviews of the book elsewhere, and not all of them agreeing with this review!! Whats your take?
