Reality Bites- Anurag Anand

About the book: A sneek peak into life within the boundaries of a co-ed bostel; a compelling search for love-driven not by the callings of the heart but the anxiety of peer pressure; a passionate scandal; a hair-raising brush with certain doom and a plethora of unforgettable incidents weave together the fangs of reality – a bite that can alter lives.

In pursuit of ambitions thrust upon him by his zealous father, Atul finds himself transported to a world very different from the one he had known – the Delhi High School hostel. Amid the cacophony of curious characters, bizarre rituals and peculiar circumstances he decides to pursue an interest of his own – Ayesha, the quintessential femme fatale.

What happens next?

Does Atul succeed in his pursuit for love?

Who is 'She' the mystery girl?

What becomes of him and Bengali and Senti when they step out into yet another unknown world – the one beyond the confines of the hostel walls?

I picked this up a few days back... a must read with a coffee-mug, pouring rains... and good music... my types... The story is about Atul’s hostel life and all that he faces and learns there, well etched charachters, a beautiful word picture of an engineering college and hostel life,family expectations, all very finely carved.
ALok, swati, bengali and of course Senti keeps the pace ... finished it in one sitting,  for some hours i went back to my college-days...with a smile on my face... the bits of humour and wise thought makes it all in all a good read.. willl recommend this for sure... 4.4/5
