REVIEW: 


Finding Juliet by Toffee started of really well, because I found myself relating to all the first crush and first love incidents of the male protagonist Arjun's story about his college days. Almost all those little things brought a smile to my face and I found myself enjoying the book, even though it's not something I'd ever even consider picking up otherwise. But I thought I'd give this book a try because I knew it would be a short, simple and sweet read, which it was, save for a few problems I had with it. 

It was towards the second half of the book where there's that whole have a girlfriend to flaunt and not seem a loser that started getting on my nerves. No matter how chill or sweet a book is, this is one thing I just cannot stand for the life of me. Another point that I didn't agree with was the make out and make up drama. Also, even when Arjun was smart enough to understand that a particular relation wasn't exactly good, he kept going on with it. But of all these, the worst was being proud of being in numerous relations at once and assuming how a woman's brain works, like, just stop!

Now that the positives and negatives are out of the way, let's talk about the story. An engineer by profession, Arjun joins the IT industry after his studies and lands a really good job, and apparently, also a very cool social life. Aside from the few times where he got on my nerves, Arjun was a really sweet and kind person. Although he did mess up majorly sometimes, his realisations and the fact that he learned from his mistakes made him a good person. Arjun also enjoys writing and contributes as lyricist to bands and movies. I would have loved to see some of Arjun's writing work in the book because I'm sure it would've added much more to the book.

Author Toffee's writing was really good; very simple and extremely easy to understand. All in all, although Finding Juliet seemed like a typical Bollywood movie, it was a good read that was enjoyable but there are some parts of it that I just cannot stand, no matter what. But it's definitely a good or- as they say, "time-pass"- read that gives a nice glimpse into the lives of techies.
