Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the author and The Book Club in exchange of an honest review. The views expressed herein are solely my own and there has been no monetary exchange involved.
WRME sort of picks up from where RFWS ended, but focuses more on the life of the recently-divorced Sneha, Nandini’s best friend who is hugely instrumental in getting Nandini and Aditya together.
Divorced and in a new city, with a little son as her responsibility, Sneha’s character is inspiring. She is shown to not be shy of the fact that her life has fallen apart or the lack of money in the life she is building for herself. Her respect for herself and her struggles is real, believable, and certainly not one of those ideal things that can only be preached and not practiced.
Nikhil Chandel, who makes a brief appearance in RFWS, has your attention from the word go (though I think this is one of the those women things 😉 ).
A on and off parallel track also deals with the ups and downs Aditya and Nandini face in their marriage, but Varsha has beautifully managed to continue keeping Sneha the star of the story while not taking away from Aditya and Nandini. The balance comes out well.
Varsha’s love for Bollywood is pretty much known by everyone who reads her books. So all twists and turns in the book do seem inspired by all the movies that she must have enjoyed watching. Like the scheme that Gayatri and Mona come up with. Or Alisha’s tactics for that matter. Thankfully, though, the scenes are not over-the-top, so you don’t cringe with all the unnecessary drama. Even Mona’s character, who is your typical vamp, has been dealt with well so that she brings just the required amount of masala to the story.
The language and the editing, things that are important to me as a reviewer, are good and certainly an improvement over RFWS. It is good to see that Varsha has taken care of the minor details, which go a long way in defining a reviewer’s experience.
I only wish she would’ve come down with using cuss words or the tone of some dialogues between Sneha and Nandini. Quite a bit of it made me wince.
Overall, the book is a decent read and to me, as a reviewer, is a good showcase of the author’s capability to not just churn out good stuff but also grow beautifully.
I give this book a 3/5.
Wrong Means Right End, an exuberant story about love and friendship, is filled with surprises and a wicked twist at every turn.
