Book Review : Done with Men.

"Done with men "  by Shuchi Singh Kalra is the first e book ,I am reveiwing.I had read another e book  much earlier.Shuchi Singh Kalra 's debut novella is "Done with Men ".She has written many articles  for magazines like Femina,Good Housekeeping,Women's Era to name a few.Shuchi owns Pixie Dust Writing Studio, an editing firm that serves clients across the world !
She is the owner of the Indian Freelance Writers Blog, which is a fast-growing resource for Indian writers.

Well ,I loved the PDF format."Done with Men " is an Indirom Novella published by Indireads.In fact ,it is the first rom com offering by Indireads after 30 romance novellas which were published in 2013.Navigation was a breeze !

The author has dedicated this book to her hubby ,kid,parents,in laws & also the readers.It is quite humourous ....her vote of thanks to all !

There are twenty chapter followed by Epilogue,Glossary , note to readers,about author,about Indireads & more from Indireads.

This is a story of Kairavi Krishna,  who is working for the magazine ,The New Age Traveller .She is in Goa on a holiday cum work assignment.She wants to party away to forget & forgive her boyfriends who were useless & brought her grief.To prove her point ,she tattoos her  hand with "Done with Men ".And then she meets with an accident .The holiday plan goes awry.She is being nursed in hospital by best friend Baani & her glued  boyfriend Kapil.

Is the hospital stay boring ? Kairavi has to warn herself that she will not fall for any more men though she meets the handsome doctor on duty, Dr Vivian,daily.It is sheer torture.Then ,she discovers that he may be married.No, still a bachelor and going to be engaged.Very confusing.

There is more drama.Her ex keeps meeting her in places she lands up.Baani & her fevicol boy friend break up.Kairavi's boss lands up in Goa.What happens when Kairavi's boss discovers that Kairavi was dancing with gay abandon when she met with an accident ? Do Kairavi & Vivian become a couple ? Is it mutual love or is it just one sided  love by Kairavi ?  What about Baani & Kapil ?

The book makes hilarious reading.All paragraphs from the first till the very end has a little humour in it.The thought bubble speaking & replying to Kairavi's questions are very amusing. Kairavi is just like any other girl who cannot take to high heels .She is not the slim & trim types.We can all identify with her & hence empathise with her !

The print was easy on the eyes & all is neat.Short chapters which egg me on to read faster.Language is easy & drama unfolds step by step.So ,the plot gets interesting as we flip pages.

A worthy book to keep smiling & laughing as we read through.

Thank you ,Storizen for this opportunity to read & review an E book !
