I am Big So What?- A Review

Shuchi Singh Kalra’s I am big so What? is one of the thought provoking book. It focusses on the carefree living and it challenges those sterotypical notions about fat people and even the marriage alliances. The book is famous for its witty language which takes away the hearts of the readers.


Cover- The cover of the book is colourful and it has a picture of a girl who seems plumpy but still manages to look classy. This gives us a slight idea that the story highlights the life of a plumpy or fat girl.

Title- The title is perfect and the story revolves around it. The way the author has used the title with a question mark is actually a Rhetorical question and in a way challenges the changing in progress society.

Plot- The plot is crisp and doesn’t lose focus till the end. It elucidates the life of Roli who has low esteem because of her oversized body. She face rejections at many places but doesn’t lose hope until she comes across her seventh suitor who is just like her. The way she overcome her fears, find herself is the rest of the story.

Characterisation- The author has beautifully portrayed her characters. Every character is given special importance and have their set of stories to tell. The way the author has drawn the portrait of Roli is mind blowing and we instantly fall for her.

Kabir Wagh’s character is most apppreciable. He has that appealing style which one cannot ignore. The way he does everything for Roli and look after her looks so cute. Whereas, the other characters also surprise us with their set of ideas.

Style- The author has used third person narrative and paired up with impersonal descriptions. Further, the witty style is surpassable. The language is simple and lucid. The dialogue structure is impressive and the author has amazingly added humour and emotional drama in this book.

The Story:

“Abhaya allows us to delve into the world of our ancestors and Gods through the route of great storytelling and a brilliant narrative. A thoroughly enjoyable read” – Amish Tripathi 

A tale set in the times of Mahabharata. An assertive and idealistic Princess Abhaya meets the enigmatic Krishna Vaasudeva. A bereaved Dhatri, hounded by her own family is saved by Lord Bhauma. When subverted religion becomes a tool in the hands of power thirsty and strikes Bharatavarsha, the land of Aryas, Abhaya finds herself face to face with the impending doom. 

“Can we combat the fear with faith? Can we keep our faith undeterred when the last traces of hope melt away? Can we receive blame and adulation, accept them and yet not give in to them?” 

An excitingly different take on one of the myriad legends celebrating the light vs. darkness matrix that defines Diwali. The sparkling narration adds new facets to the compelling tale of the killing of the demon, Narakasur – Sangeeta Bahadur, Author of Kaal Trilogy

Miss Adventures by Surajit Agarwal

Name of the book: Miss Adventures

Author: Surajit Frank Agarwal

Read a review:

The Story:

Four friends decide to overthrow the shackles of their mundane middle class existence by planning an adventure of a lifetime. They travel to four cities, across four countries to gift themselves the ultimate 40th birthday bash. One that would fulfill their fantasies. But does their grand plan end up in one big misadventure?************** 

On the surface they have everything. Jobs, family, great homes, great cars. But in reality: 

Their jobs suck. 

Their marriages are a sham. 

EMIs rule their lives. 

Their “fun” comes mixed in soda and ice. 

Raman, Ravi, Bijoy and Sagar decide to step out of their ordinary, boring middle class lives to gift themselves a fantastical 40th birthday party. They travel to four cities across four countries to indulge their deepest desires. 

However, they find themselves stymied at every step. Raman finds cops dogging his footsteps. Ravi finds innovative ways of losing money. Bijoy’s ego and manhood take a hit at every turn. Sagar finds himself in situations he would rather not be. 

The friends believe lady luck is being unkind to them. Is it luck that is tripping them up or is it just a lady? 

Miss Adventures is a sexy laugh riot of four bumbling friends and their one attempt at living life large. Will they make it? 

If you love to laugh, you’ll love this book. 

If you love drama, you’ll love this book. 

If you love sex, you’ll love this book. 

If you love to read, you’ll love this book!
