34 Bubblegums And Candies (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.68

34 Bubblegums And Candies by Preeti Shenoy is a compilation of thirty four short stories, which teach about life lessons and are based on the author’s personal experiences.

Summary Of The Book

34 Bubblegums And Candies is a book for anyone and everyone. It features a series of short stories with a variety of themes, that were taken from real life events in the author’s life. Many of the stories featured in this book are common, everyday occurrences which every reader can relate with. Since each story attempts to elicit a different type of response, readers can simply pick and choose the story they wish to read without following the natural order of the stories. For instance, in one story Shenoy talks about how the date of her dad’s demise and the birth of her brother’s first child coincided. In another heartwarming story, Shenoy talks about what life is like for children living with HIV. 

In this particular story, she emphasizes that these kids are just like any other children and should be hugged and loved. Shenoy also explores the theme of faith as it appears in parent-child relationships by talking about her relationship with her 6-year old daughter. Due to the mundaneness of the stories, readers can easily relate to Shenoy. The book is organized into thirty four chapters, featuring 34 stories. Some of the titles of these chapters are My Special Friend, Feeling Needed, Age Miracles, The Stranger, and Mail Exchange. Shenoy ends each story with inspiring and thought provoking notes that explain how various experiences teach us something valuable.

34 Bubblegums And Candies was published in 2008 and was a national bestseller.

Don't buy it !

There should be a quality check on books.. doesn't meet my standards of a good read.
New readers may like it though, just anybody can narrate incidents from his/her life. Deceiving title and not so good book.

Could not chew the GUM neither felt the taste of Candie

One fine morning she thought - since I have many fans(dumb people) who follow my blog, why don't I come up with a book. But she forgot writing a blog online and telling a story through a book has a lot of difference. The connectivity, the charm, the simplicity in writing all matters when you write a book. Well, about the book its a complete waste of time. Don't know how she came up with such a book. Abrupt ending to all stories, no flair for writing, nothing creative just a plain write up of some incidents in life. One can't even say its a story because a story has got several elements whic...

Extremely dissatisfied with narration.. I hope you would write better books in near future..

Total Waste

I am forced to write this review.This book is so bad that it doesn't deserve to be published at all.It is total waste of money and time.I really fail to understand as to how this book is among the best seller books.
I would be highly obliged,if some one could please tell the number of copies of a book to be sold before it becomes a bestseller.

Poor editing, seemed like a half-hearted attempt.

34 bubblegums and candies... 34 random write-ups from the author's day-to-day life. The book seems more like a collection of select posts from a personal blog. Some of the write-ups were really good and connected with you somewhere, but most were just so-so. The total lack of editing was a real let-down.
My Rating: 1/5.

65 Wasted Rupees and My Precious Time

I wonder how she found a publisher to publish the crap collection of her blogs. I bought this one based on her other book. Even for light read, this doesn't worth. I gave 1 star because I couldn't give less than that.

Skip it.

Reminds you of your golden era of your life, your cool-age!!

I liked the way author steers us through her story!!
A very simple narration, so many incidents that you could relate to our own life.
I cannot assure you that this book is going to blow your mind, no!! it completely depends on your personal interests and opinion.

But In my opinion, for reader...

Simple and nice

It is a type of book that you might not like reading at first but a little thought on the tittle and the contents you are reading will make you enjoy this book. The incidents you read in this book are common and might have happened with you but you don't really think about them. This book in some... (View complete review)
