Aug 18, payal deb rated it it was amazing. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. The best parts are the emotional and societal events in a 29 year old single, surviving alone, pressured with a high profile, higher expectant job title, with a f This book is a complete hilarious with loads of fun factor.

I would still recommend that you read this book because the book is a representation of the thinking patterns of today’s youth, their ideologoies. I kid around sometimes saying that I have the strongest sales force because I have friends all over the country and they are totally tracking the book. I would’ve liked to see more of Anushka too – but her story did progress, which was satisfactory. The protagonist, Aisha Bhatia is 29, single that’s a capital crime over here in South Asia belongs to a new breed of women who are trying to draw balance between their 5-star independent world of cosmopolitan life style and their orthodox society.

Jan 08, Namitha Varma rated it it was ok Shelves: Their third friend Anushka is a product of 21 st century. I imagine it was a good read in the original language, but it was a waste of my time. What inspired you to write Almost Single and when did you decide to really sit yourself down and start on it?

The whole booked singl loaded with cliche’s. I took this book up for reading rather hesitantly. The Indian Bridget Jones, only wittier and funnier! Except, here’s the thing: Email required Address never made public. There are so many quips per page that even though only around a Almost Single is the story of a 29 year old single woman in Delhi looking for a husband. But it was just like watching an episode of mediocre comdedy show but nothing else.

Book Review of Almost Single by Advaita Kala

There were several cultural references, which were not given supporting details to help a Non-native to India understand. There is no freshness to the book. Do not expect it to enrich your empty hours. Kals a plethora of disappointing chick lit novels out there, Kala achieves what many cannot—she makes her readers laugh aloud.

The tone is catty, chatty and the story is told in a more confiding, personal tone. Reading this book reminded me quite a bit of Pride and Prejudice not coincidentally, other GR reviewers found it reminiscent of Bridget Jones’s Diary. The protagonists wlmost a certain substantial population of present day India.

It means some links on the site kalz affiliate. You have the Mrs Bennet kind of mother who treats her daughter’s marital status as her single biggest failure, pun intended. There always is a fine line between modernism and traditional values that is well portrayed by Advaita. But this instead was about a single urban woman who seems to be desperately in search of a man who can validate her existence in the society, which is clearly understandable though The only reason I want to write this review, is to tell how much I hate this book.


I love reading about different cultures and part of the experience and appeal of reading a book taking place in India is learning about India. I personally very much enjoyed this book, though it was an obligatory course reading.

Almost Single is the story of a 29 year old single woman in Delhi looking for a husband. The characterization lacked depth and was bearable only to a certain extent.

Book Review | Almost Single by Advaita Kala

I felt the book dragged its feet so to speak I took this book up for reading rather hesitantly. You are commenting using your WordPress. Savvy, sexy, and unforgettable, Almost Single tackles the loving, exasperating tug-of-war between mothers and daughters, traditional customs and contemporary romance—and what happens when a modern Indian woman is caught in the middle. There cant be any spoilers cuz the plot is very predictable. Feb 05, Komal Mehta rated it really liked it Shelves: They are perceived as a group of hungry piranhas waiting to sink their teeth into any man.

Apart from the conventional saga, one thing that stands out is the ideology of the avvaita. How much of your work has been inspired by your own life and experiences?

The plot and people became way too superficial towards the end, making the climax a bit abrupt and chaotic. And Bathia’s life songle a modern woman is small compensation: We use cookies to ensure that we give you the best experience on our website.
