  1. Definitely not my kind of book or my kind of writing The story is all over the place the editing is pathetic I felt lost at certain times while reading this book.


  2. It is always a very nice feeling when you read a book that describes the society, people and culture of a place in such detail Siddharth Chowdhury tries to do it honestly and full points to him, because he manages successfully in painting the accurate picture of Patna and Delhi in this novel.Siddharth spent many important years of his life in Patna and Delhi so it is not a surprise that the people, streets and life of Patna formed such an integral part of this story Same can be said about the li [...]


  3. An ultimate showcase of best of Indian writing Being studied in Delhi and lived most of the time there, I thoroughly enjoyed this novel by Siddharth Choudhury The story of Zorawar Singh Shokeen breathes Delhi in and out While reading this, I was taken back in college years in Delhi University The writer has presented the cases of college guys from Bihar UP in Delhi University North Campus Lucidly written but witty in many parts, this is a sure shot page turner No wonder it was selected for Man A [...]


  4. I know I missed so much of the texture of this story due to my lack of knowledge about Indian culture, geography and language Wish there was a glossary at the back to help translate words, idioms, cultural references and even personalities mentioned it could have provided a bit of education along the way for someone new to this part of the world If this a culture familiar to you, I trust you will find it easier to connect with the characters, plot and feel of the story.


  5. Patna Roughcut was far better.Didn t like this onet at all.Very cheap writing,plot also very predictable and full of sexual innuendos.Very doubtful about it was shortlisted for Man Asia literaryprize 2009.


  6. To be honest, I read it only because it s set in North Campus and being on the bring of attaining alumni status it was a strange pleasure reading of Batra Cinema, Hudson Lines and Kamala Nagar A bit half baked though.


  7. A finely wrought narrative, about the Bihari student subculture in Delhi University s North Campus Among the dross of Indian Writing in English, a remarkable work, one that will stay with the reader for a long time


  8. A mystical mishmash of D.U students, property dealers, IAS aspirants, North campus elections, goons and sexual escapades Everyone makes a fool of themselves, and almost everyone is hiding a heartbreak Oh, the bittersweet 90s.


  9. Bihari students, property dealers, campus elections, goons, sex, IAS aspirants etc all come alive in this fascinating book about life in the hostels of Delhi University s North campus Read it for a better perspective of another aspect of the city called Delhi
