3.8 out of 5 stars.. This book is fun and quick read. I loved the character Rishi,maybe Dimple. But oh boy did I find the representation of Indian culture in this book a bit off the table.
Let me tell all non-Indians one thing, arranged marriages at 18 are unheard off, they r not part of the modern culture and when they happen and oh boy they do.. They in that case happen because there are usually a number of side stories and reasons behind it.
And let's get on to Rishi!! Ahh the charming Indian prince..Too good to be true. I love him and I seriously wish guys would take some lessons from him..
I can rant forever on the things that are wrong with this book and things that are right and great!! But advice to anyone reading it,don't take it seriously believe me just don't. Moms don't go around telling us girls to wear makeup or good clothes(except on occasions).A number of people are not vegetarians and finding one is sorta a rarity. And girls like Dimple aren't forced into marriages (maybe some are but I don't thing at 18) but as she said in the book- she is an American.. A girl stuck between having to let go of her old identities and take on new ones.. The social media scare was quite true..
So read it, I'm sure many people will love it but don't give a lot of thought on the representation methods. It's just story about a fierce girl and a charming boy.. I wish there was a movie on it. I would love to watch..
