Book Review

When I think about YA or chic-lit books, I love to pick up books from new Indian authors because relatable things matter! In this book, Enakshi and her encounters right from the family members and other characters she meets in Chennai during her internship flashed before me as if I was traveling with a young girl. The writing and the story as it goes forward kept me engaged. This book can be read on a boring evening to lighten up and calm your mind. Go, pick it up!

Grammar & Vocabulary

Simple and comprehendible language with easy vocabulary is used in the book.

Writing Style

The book is engaging and funny at the same time. The names and the places are familiar because I come from a South Indian background and have friends in Delhi, Kolkata, and Nagpur. In Ena, it is apparent see a young girl coming out of her comfort zone to a different city where the language is the main barrier.

The book, Mis(s)adventures of a Salesgirl by Aashisha Chakraborty also reflects the typical challenges of a modern youngster who started her career a few days ago as an intern and has already faced the heat from the company and its management. With attractive narration and well-structured writing, writer Aashisha captures the readers’ minds instantly.

What did I like?

1. The story.

2. The characters.

3. The sensible and sensitive side of human emotions is portrayed in the story. 

What could have been better:

The story is a fine read, except for some drags in the first half of the story. Too much of descriptions made the paragraphs drag.

Entertainment Quotient

It is a good one-time enjoyable read which will make your lips smile and laugh a lot!
