Day 18 – WTF Just Happened Book Ending

Spoiler alert!!! It is a book by Chetan Bhagat. If you’re planning to read any, avoid this post.

30 Days Book Challenge – Day 18 – WTF Just Happened Book Ending

Revolution 2020 by Chetan Bhagat
I am not a Chetan Bhagat fan. I read 5 point someone, One night at the call center & 3 mistakes of my life. I decided that those were the 3 mistakes of my life and that I’d never read his books again. That was when many of my friends recommended 2 states and I read it. I was impressed. I heard R2020 would release soon and I was a bit hopeful now.
Final verdict: I loved the book.
My cousin bought this book. She said I could read it after she was done with it. She read it within two days and then she looked lost. She kept saying, “Why did that happen?” or “Why did he have to do that?”
I soon read it and then I understood what she meant. She said, “If that is a real story, imagine what would happen if the girl reads this book. She will get to know some painful truth.”
And we looked lost for another couple of days. For the first time, I felt Chetan Bhagat’s story stayed with me for a long while.
PS – No! I don’t want to try Half-girlfriend. Sounds eww! :/

      You know, there are many thoughts that cross our minds after we finish a book 😉 So it was one among them 😛

      1. theonlysup

        And what kind of thoughts were they.?? Pleasant or unpleasant ??

        1. Ranju

          Sometimes pleasant. Sometimes, when the book is tragic, unpleasant. Some books hook you so much that, once you have finished reading, you just refuse to come out of it. You either delve in its sorrow or fly in its happy ending.

    Somehow never around to reading Chetan Bhagat. But maybe I’ll try this sometime 🙂

    1. Ranju

      This one is worth a read. But I’d say not to expect much.

  3. Alok Singhal

    A bit hilarious upfront. I liked 2 states, haven’t read any of the others from his stable.
    I guess you need to calm down your expectations from him 🙂

    1. Ranju

      I believe once you start with R2020 or 2 states, it is better not to go back and read anything else.
      Welcome to my blog. 🙂

    That was the best part of the book you know, the rawness of emotions. I loved the book as well. Sometimes you just have to let go for the better good and then life shows us his smirky face!

    1. Ranju

      Exactly! I found many people who couldn’t accept the fact that not all endings are happy. I liked this book for the ending too.

  5. rumadak

    You are right about 2 States. I also liked that one by him.
    Half Girlfriend is also OK. It’s more like a movie screenplay. I guess he already knows movies will be made on his forthcoming book and hence his books go in that direction from the very beginning!

    1. Ranju

      I have always wondered this. There are many authors in India and why do they choose only his books for a movie :/

    I didnt like the Revolution 2020 (as compared to the rest of his). Usually Bhagat’s books start off well, with characters being all hale, then he messes it up, and reserves a blip of optimism for the ending. But Revolution is all messed right from the word go. I rather liked his One night at the call center the best for reasons that still elude me. Half-girl friend, wel, have been strictly instructed not to read.

    1. Ranju

      Different people, varied opinions. 🙂 Probably I liked it for the motion right from the beginning. The ending is what hooked me though. 😀

    I have read something here and there from his works and decided not to read more 😀
    And the Bollywood movies based on them…never more

      You can give this one a try though. You might like it. 😛

        No, thanks. It is my pleasure to read another book on your list written by someone else 😛
