After a series of thrillers and
crime stories this was a refreshing break. All thanks to Blogadda again.
Sometimes you get in this mood for a light read and I was exactly in this mood
when I got this book.
Sneha the single mom is enjoying
the new phase in her life, with her little son Advey, after her divorce. Nandini, Sneha’s BFF tries hard to fix blind
dates for her but in vain.
Poor Sneha is almost forced to meet an 'eligible' suitor
at every party that Nandini throws. The two friends have been together through
thick and thin and are protective about each other. Sneha comes across Nikhil with whom
she shared an unpleasant past and comes to know about Gayatri – ex flame of
Adiyta, Nanidi’s husband. Time brings a tough situation for Sneha and
she needs to keep aside ego, history and opinions to save her best friends.
Wrong Means Right End is all
about relationships and emotions. Very heart-warming at some moments to see such
close friendship and bonds. Though a light read you find twists and turns
throughout the story. However, it sometimes gets predictable. It’s like you are
reading about matured relationship ala M&B Moderns, where you have filthy
rich lovers ( husband in this case) showering love OTT.
Sneha is a free-spirited woman
and her character is well sketched. I would have been disappointed if she was
made a stereotyped divorcee woman. She is smart, independent woman taking up
responsibilities for her son as well as taking care of her friend when she
needs the most.
Certain things that didn’t go
down to well with me are the cuss words – why would I refer my best friend as ‘Kulta’.
For God’s sake no – my BFF will kill me for that. Anyway, the deliberate
mispronounced cuss words also doesn’t help much – at least for me.
Bust the two high points in the
book are the strong and deep bond between the friends and the raw chemistry
between Sneha and Nikhil.
It’s those kind of quick of reads
which you like when you are spending hours between a flights at the airport or
are travelling long hours. There’s a feel good factor.
