After a long time I finished a book. I tried ‘Girls from Libya’ , ‘May I hebb Your Attension pliss’ and ‘Three Men on a boat’ but left all of them mid way. MIHYAP was so bad I couldn’t read more than 10 pages and Greatbong is suppose to be a pro-blogger. Still I switched to another pro-blogger ie Sidin.
Its pity that I discovered Sidin’s blog so late. He has a funny bone and it reflects in his blog, tweets and book. Its his first attempt at writing and he has already decided to write trilogy.
The book documents the journey of Robin from his placement day till he completes an eventful year in his first company. Its documented in diary format from Robins point of view.
The book is written only with one thing in mind, To make people laugh because it doesn’t have a decent plot or a story nor any decent side characters. Characters come in the narration and goes out without adding much to the content. Only character stays with you is Robin, The narrator. He is fool and thats why witty.
Sidin has taken many digs at how consultant works and how they get paid for doing nothing. Which is not true, I believe but if you don’t exaggerate it will not be funny. I really liked the Ball bearing incident in the book. Book also has a love story thrown in to add some masala.
Overall a decent light read. You don’t have to remember anything while reading this. You can start at any page and it will still be funny and senseless. So throw the logic out of the window and just enjoy Sidin’s writing skills.
Added later : Forgot to add that the book has abrupt ending and it feels like Author published only half the book he has written. Just to make another part in Trilogy?
Rating : 3/5.
