One night @ the call center - a breezy read

This is a kind of a book which you would want to read it on a lazy Saturday afternoon after a heavy lunch. If you liked Five point someone (by the same author Chetan Bhagat), you would definitely like ONTCC.

The book starts off with a stranger narrating the experiences to Chetan about six people who work at a call centre in Gurgaon. The whole story revolves around the incidents that happen in one particular night and how the lives of those six youngsters change after that. A very realistic story, I should say. The narration is fast paced, very interesting and ofcourse, unputdownable. But the most important thing that makes this book captivating is the style of writing, in simple English with no complex jargon. I would prefer to read a book without looking at the dictionary quite often. What I look for in fictional books is good time-pass and a gripping storyline, nothing else. For those of you who have similar interest like me, go and grab a copy of ONTCC.

Chetan, Looking forward to your next book.

I'd disagree when u say if u liked Five Point someone who'd like this book. Infact i'd say those who'd liked that book will not like this as much as that.

Again the writing style, narration all that was engaging, fast, pacy and down to earth. language was very simple was typical slang.

many a things he says here can be related to real life by many. but on the whole, i didn't find this a great piece.

But if ur a chetan bhagat fan after 5 pt someone, then buying this book for 95 bucks is no big deal.

yeah, i too would say. Looking forward for ur next book Chetan!

well i find it difficult to agree with u that this book is good. it is very similar to a typical 'masala' movie. but y curse chetan...the girl who asked him to write this book is the one to be accused :-)
