Driven by Desire by Shilpa Suraj

The book was hilarious . well what do you expect from a book where the characters are falling from sky. Like literally. You open the book to its first chapter and first paragraph literally see the characters falling from sky or falling to the ground. If that is not an interesting opening to a book then i don’t know what is. I loved Driven by Desire. It was cute. it was fun and it was adorable

Driven by Desire RWAT Take

I did enjoy the book with its wacky and quick romance. Although i was a bit taken by the language as this is the first time where i have seen this kind of language style. Its a mixture of American colloquial version and British Vocabulary all sewed together to narrate a very indian story. Although it may sound weird but in the book it doesn’t. In fact i loved the language.

Well except for some of the street words and american colloquial slangs (or was it british slangs )  that made it a bit difficult to digest. In short the language caught me by surprise since i am not used to it especially for Indian romances. But am i saying it is bad ? no absolutely not. I loved it and the language was partly what made the reading easy and fun to absorb

Story is amazingly cupid and wicked. A perfect candy floss romance for that perfect summer read. I did have one problem with the book. Narration. For the whole length of the book, i was trying to get a grab over as to who the real narrator was. Was it a third person? Was it through the male character ? or was it through the female character? it was a bit hazy for me. The narration kept jumping from different visions within a single paragraph. but fortunately the cuteness and flow of the story was that it i enjoyed it inspite of everything and anything that i pointed out above


In short to my review, i loved the book. In fact it only took me few hours to finish the book as i was that invested in it. The best part about the book is that it literally flows through its narration. Before you know you would have ended up reading half of the book. Its quick. A book for romantic fanatics. Its a book for you only if you love quick and cotton candy romance.
