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.

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

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! (continued)

* s3x in the baloon: did i just read the porn version of Goosebumps? Einstein quoted that "imagination is more powerful than knowledge," but he certainly forgot to quip- "the imagination of women is more powerful than imagination itself."

* all in all, it was a 'Mad Bane' experience (abbreviating the author's name)

project summary: i want my money back. i shall magnanimously "let go" the time being invested in reading the book.

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.

A Book Absolutely with Viewpoint of a Woman

I read the book because I had to, after knowing that it is the prequel to Mistakes Like Love and Sex. The book starts with the ordinary life of Kaveri who is 30 yet virgin. She is unsure of her life and unaware of her dreams. She has seen the world and speaks seven different languages, she is confident and possesses all the qualities an average successful girl should have. Yet there is something that is missing inside her.

I read the book because I had to, after knowing that it is the prequel to Mistakes Like Love and Sex. The book starts with the ordinary life of Kaveri who is 30 yet virgin. She is unsure of her life and unaware of her dreams. She has seen the world and speaks seven different languages, she is confident and possesses all the qualities an average successful girl should have. Yet there is something that is missing inside her.

The story is woven around the protagonist Kaveri. Basically showing the changes in her character as she gains experience in life through real life examples. However, in spite of being centered to one character, the book could not discover the character really effectively. There are straight lines lacking beauty of literature. Witty dialogues develop after some half of the book however, unable to fill the loss. The book is plotted majorly in Mumbai and New York and it may be disappointing for you if you expect to discover these cities in book (which most of people do when reading a book that happens in Mumbai).

The book can show you some examples of great love making and can be good lesson for you if you are new at love-making thing. No doubt an awesome book for chick-lit lovers but this is going to turn off those who search for humor. Beauty of language is not there. Teaches practical life lessons and overall??? a little bit below than an average book that you might enjoy on a lazy Sunday. And of course the book will end up giving you teachings.

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...

waste of time

This book is really and truly, a waste of time. It starts off fairly promisingly, but then, the author tries too hard to bring in a variety of ideas into a single plot. The result is that the reader totally loses interest in what he is reading, and stops caring altogether.
Anyway, the title of t...

World of Women

I had purchased this book after scrutinizing lots or reviews over the internet and finally decided to shell out my 170 rupees for this. To begin with, it's a complete girlish novel totally cornered on the female protagonist Kaveri. The thing to be noted here is that "women are very confusing... (View complete review)
