Bad book!

Frankly, I have not read a book worse than this one. After reading every story , I wanted to throw the book away. Finally, had to give up midway as I thought this was a total time waste. Not even a single story was worth it!

Interesting Read

This is a very interesting book. The stories are unique in the way human relationships are. The unpredictability of humans is captured perfectly in each story. Each story demonstrates a very different side of the mind and the way people think. A very different and unique book. Like its name its a true cocktail that captures the human spirit.

My review

There is an element of the funny and the wicked in this book. Take the instance of ‘Absence makes the Heart Grow Fonder’; it is a reflection of a marriage and relationship of convenience. To think of it, it is stark, yet it has an element of something disturbing and shallow. ‘The Miscalculation’ leaves a reader stunned. ‘The Opposite of Love’ is funny and witty too. One would really trip on the last sentence of this story – ‘The opposite of love is indifference’. ‘Lovedale’ is a poignant tale of love, loss and uncertainty.

Complete waste of Time and Money

I think people should not waste other people's time in name of good stories. Every story seemed to be something like an effort given to start but more effort is given to finish. With every story it seemed that one had to take extra effort to reach the end. Some stories were felt to be copied from some year 90's movies and some were seemed to be copied from daily SOPs.
