Comment From Jithin

Read your latest book - Revolution 2020 - But before reading the book some two months ago I came across a funny app in facebook which tells about typical CB books (i mean the story line). We can enter couple of choices and it produces somewhat the same story line of CB books. So, while reading the latest book also I had the similar feeling, I couldn't find the spark that was there when I 5 point someone anymore. The story has become more predictable, the circumstances and the storyline also started to feel similar. But somehow I felt 2 states was an exception. It had that spark in it. So, anyway I am always a fan of your books. :)

12:14

Chetan Bhagat:

naman - in 2012 hopefully the 3mistakes movie.
