Book review : Losing my virginity and other dumb ideas...

Losing my virginity and other dumb ideas...that's the book i last read. Written by Madhuri Banerjee this book is a tad different from those typical love-romance stories where the end is too predictable.

It is a good light read, on how a women struggles with her inner voice and changes her thoughts and values to give away something she has been treasuring for so long....her virginity. From being a person who was saving up her virginity to give it away as a wedding gift to her "The Great Love" to being a person who now didnt think twice before connecting with a person and sharing "intimate moments" this book has it all...love, lust and all the masala that it needs.

Falling in love with a married man, being trapped emotionally with him and finally moving out of the relation a stronger person, Kaveri the protagonist finally decides to live her life the way she wants to. She does try to associate every relationship she has since then to LOVE....that is loving herself.

For me the book was just a light read and nothing more, though I was eager to finish it to know what was the climax. If she does find her "The Great Love" or not....well you have to read the book for that and I wont consider that to be a dumb idea :)


  1. Looks interesting. The book reaffirms that notion that not only men but women themselves sometimes don't know what they want.

    Will look forward to your review of the book.

    1. Thanks for your comment Haresh :)
      I did enjoy the book at some point and at some point I felt it was just too stupid esp the part where the protagonist has random sex with random people.
      Yes, it does reaffirm the notion that there are many confused souls in this world seeking something that they themselves are unsure of.
      Apart from that its a good light read.
