Some book covers are so catchy that they invariably compel readers to take a look at the book. Published by Leadstart, ‘Bangalored’ by Gayatri Chandrasekharan is one such book that will surely hook its readers for some action.
The novel is short, fast-paced, and an engaging read. It is so soft with its soul that evidently it makes for a light and breezy read for all sorts of readers. Anyway, beginners will have a great time with this masterpiece.
One can guess from its title that the book is staged against the cosmopolitan culture of Bangalore. The novel features Radha Iyer and James Rutherford. The former is a chirpy smart girl based in Bangalore, while the later is a citizen of the UK who comes on a trip for some work. However, little did he know that he is going to be smitten by something in the IT hub of Indi?
Radha and James share inexplicable understanding and bonding. They talk about cultural values, gossip about movies, long phone chats, and frequenting some hang-out places eventually bring them close. Then, they become friends, and finally hang on the verge of love.
The novel is special for its extra premium coverage of the city Bangalore. It must have thrown reminiscences of the city to the people who had had Bangalore etched out in their memory lanes.
More than a direct story, the novel chugs ahead like a beautiful experience. The way sweet ‘love feelings’ are explored in the novel, is truly commendable. Gayatri’s narrative is soothing and lucid. Anyone can read and enjoy it. Will James leave the city in a hurry? Or will he stop for Radha and the beauty of Bangalore. The love trundles slowly…beautifully captures romance against the sublime beauty of Bangalore.
