letter to the author!

Dear CB

Hi! To begin with- i had a GREAT time at the session (even though we had to wait…but then glad that you could make it inspite of the delays)

I gotta add..i didn’t know much about call centers-now i know quite a lot- from the book & from your talk..

I was eagerly awaiting"One Night @ the call center" (ON@TCC) mainly coz i had a blast while reading fps and i’ve lost count of how many times i have re-read the book and how many people i lent it to (which reminds me, my friend is yet to return my precious copy).

The issues that you dealt with, during the launch (the ones in the book) -today’s youth can totally relate to it …the entire confsuion about career,making money- choosing between a good paying job or one offering satisfaction, but lesser pay….breakups (haha you were right, everyone likes a good love story, but a breakup-story is even more enjoyable..as long as we’re not a part of the break up..haha)..Boss bashing and america bashing is SO much fun-( few parts in the book where i was mentally cheering the character- kinda like- yeah go for it!! lol)…and the killer lines (they’re not silly- they’re hilarious…few parts in the book where i laughed out so loud i got those "she’s lost it" looks from my mom & sis !)- the one liners rule..as always (they were great in fps too)

Though there are certain parts in the book which could have been better maybe..the ending part- why did you make it filmy…??!! military uncle’s character as i pointed out..oh and i wonder whether americans are that dumb- to fall for the software trick?( but then as you and others at crossword pointed out..only the dumb one’s call..so i guess they might fall for it too! )

I loved the "past dates.." chapters and my favourite portion is when they all tackle their Boss (that was AWESOME!)

I have to say- apart from the main characters you managed to create hilarious characters in the form of-Ganesh,Bakshi & Priyanka’s mom ( guys read the book you’ll know how funny these people are..)

Also the book is quite from the male point of view- i don’t know how you’ll manage to write a book from the female point of view , as u said you want to..(thats gonna be a toughie) At times i felt during the book that the female characters are slightly typecast..But overall it was a great read..i wasn’t disappointed at all ..and whats more got to meet you in person..the session was good fun (though some of those typical journalist- type questions were quite funny if you ask me..lol)

Eagerly awaiting your next book(already) ..oh & the fps film too..

SS.



Go and read the book people- as it is i’ve revealed a bit đŸ˜‰ might as well finish it and find out what its all about!
