Book Review: '3 @ a Time' by Diptendu Sekhar Chakraborty

Book Name: 3 @ a Time

Author Name: Diptendu Sekhar Chakraborty

Publisher: Omji Publishers House Ltd.

Price: Rs. 140/-

Verdict: A complete mix of emotions, love, lust, romance, humor, friendship, and more so complicated relationships. A novel that clicks on youth mindset and hinges on ideas that are real.

Review: Diptendu has a very simplistic and eloquent style of writing. The setting of college life brings to light vital situations that we at times do not give heed to. The story towards the end grips the reader unlike the beginning which is boring and uninteresting. The climax, the quirky setting, the characters are an icing on the cake.

Drawback: The book would do well if it was edited. The plot structure could have also been better if the author had given special attention to it. The authors idea of involving unrealistic elements shows this novel in a bad light.

Blurb Falling in love is one of the most exquisite feelings that one can experience in their lifespan. But what if while searching for your true soul mate, you end up having that ‘exquisite feeling’ for three people at the same time?

3 @ a time is the story of Deepankar and his tryst with trust, love, relationship, betrayal and humiliation with 3 girls at the same time along with maintaining his reputation as the wonder boy of his college.

Deepankar- strong, laborious; with a never-say-die attitude while searching for true love ends up in relation with three girls from his college.

Notorious yet dedicated for his deeds at college, Deepankar seeks love from his dream girl who turns out to be homosexual!

And then destiny plays its game.

And the reason- GIRLFRIENDS

But one should never back down and nor did Deepankar; Pooja stood by him in full support.

And in the end…

It does matter

Will the search for his soul mate be completed after his rendez vous with all the three girls?

Will Deepankar restore his faith in others or will life throw curve balls at him?

Will he be able to maintain his reputation or will be hailed as a wonder?

“3 @ a time” tells us not to be complacent on our victories neither be demotivated on our losses.
