PMR: Losing My Virginity & Other (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.179

Losing My Virginity And Other Dumb Ideas is a debut novel by Madhuri Banerjee, a media professional and national award winner. The protagonist of the book is a single woman, who on reaching the age of thirty is on a mission to figure out her love life that has eluded her all this while. How she discovers herself in the process of finding that one great love is the plot of this novel.

Summary Of The Book

Kaveri, the protagonist of the novel, is a 29-year-old, who is soon turning 30. She is a single woman who is in search of her true love that has eluded her this far. She is an interpreter by profession and has mastered seven languages. She has read many books on men and how to land a date, yet she struggles to find a perfect partner. Her friend Aditi, who is quite experienced in terms of love and relationships, offers to help her by arranging dates for Kaveri.

After a slew of unsuccessful dates, she does finally end up in a relationship, which is kind of ephemeral with the man, but true and eternal with her own self. The plot of the novel progressively moves from Kaveri being a lonely 30-year-old single woman, who is going through the roller coaster ride of a romantic relationship, to her discovering her own individuality.

Madhuri Banerjee’s debut novel Losing My Virginity And Other Dumb Ideas is a work of fiction that has appealed to many women. It was published in the year 2011. The book records the journey of the female protagonist through her various failed dates until she discovers the need to love herself.

Although the title of the novel is conclusive, the book is about discovering and loving one’s self, and to be able to understand one’s fears and desires. The novel has two complete sequels, and this is Asia’s first female trilogy, as quoted by the author to a leading Indian newspaper, The Hindu.

One of the worst books I've read

Its been whole lot of waste of time in reading this book since I kept on expecting that there would be something interesting to read. In short, its a low-grade book available on road-side shops with a fancy cover.
Please do some useful work instead of reading this book.

i want my money back!

my point(s)-of-view after reading the book:

* the author has tried her best to be a chetan bhagat in disguise (well, not-so-well). there is this desperate struggle of the protagonist to portray herself as a foodie (typical C.B. style. and well, seldom men like the women who chew a bone first, and a boner next. pls set it as a reminder while working on your next book. you can count on me. i'm a guy after all...)

* has the kinda humor that no guy under the sun will ever enjoy (but all girls certainly will, i think). instances wherein the characters supposedly "burst into laughter," failed to twist the corners of my mouth upwards- even on the nanometer scale.

* the most irritating aspect was the usage of the "product placement" technique to a ridiculous extent. the only benefit i could see here is that the author being paid handsomely by those brands that she's mentioned quite extravagantly throughout the book. inference: the author has either mugged up those brand names; or she is totally new to them.

* sex in the hot air balloon

Total waste of time and money

For starters, nobody should waste money on this book because it has a dumb, pathetic, filmy, trashy, sub-standard storyline. The book, in no way, enriches the reader; the story does not stay with the reader once he/she is done reading it

I am not going to give a synopsis for the book for the simple reason that I don't even remember the damn dumb story.

And secondly, nobody should waste a single moment of their lives on this piece of trash. God knows why I purchased this book.

Waste of money...

one of the worst books i have read.....especially for an Indian scenario, its worst. The title made me think that the book would be fun to read but no connection at all...it would be better if the title would be 'how desperately I wanted to have sex'...

Waste Of Time

The Book does nothing new .
Simple Story of acceptance and rejection.
And as the title says "Dumb Ideas", I felt ordering this book was a dumb idea from my side .

Read it if you have to kill time

The book is good in parts.
I like how each chapter starts with "you know..." where she gives a one liner gyaan.
Few things were superb in the book like the uncertainty of the protagonist, depicting how life really is. But that was the extent of the good part (except for the steamy hot...

Waste of time, don't read it. It will give you a headache.

A waste of time. From love story to reality show! I was searching for some meaningful connection in the story line chapter to chapter. But this book if you have no other book to read. ! (View complete review)

National Best Seller!

Indeed, and which nation are we talking about? If Shobhaa De and Sushmita Sen are praising it...it must be...INDIA. Nice joke. (View complete review)

Madhuri Banerjee's first book

Being her first book, I will excuse the repetitive sentiments of Kaveri being portrayed to gain sympathy from the readers. If you will read all three books of her, you will realise she has matured with her writing, storyline and vocabulary too. Pick up Advantage Love from the rack...it's her best...
