Think again

Mon 14 October 2013 by Thejaswi Puthraya

There are a lot of books stereotyping Indians in the US but "Think again" is slightly different. For one, it isn't as much an exaggeration and it offers a native twang. The Hyderabadi lingo is what makes this novel lively but kills part of the fun because it is abused a little too much.

Nayan, an American born Indian falls for Lavanya, the central character of the novel. While it is obvious for everyone around that he is trying to flirt and gain her attention, Lavanya is shocked when the proposal comes directly! Lavanya has got a past and tries to explain her situation to Nayan but he is adamant. How Lavanya and Nayan make their relationship work forms the rest of the story.

The book could have been edited tightly to keep the length in check. With a shallow storyline, you can't expect to stay glued even if it brings out a few laughs through the Hyderabadi language.
