It Started with a Friend Request (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.84

It Started With A Friend Request is a story of true, solid love and steadfast friendship, interspersed with dry humour, and is based on actual people from the author’s life.

Summary Of The Book

The protagonist of the story, a conservative and young man named Akash, has a penchant for intelligent women. His world turns upside down when he visits a discotheque named Thrive with his best friend, Aditya, and meets Aleesha. Aleesha is new to the city of Mumbai, and is considered to be a spoiled brat owing to the pampered upbringing she has had.

Aleesha and Akash exchange Blackberry pins and slowly progress to chatting with each other on a daily basis. They soon begin to fall in love with each other. With help from their friends, the couple manages to meet each other often and they navigate through the hurdles and obstacles that every relationship harbours. However, things soon take a turn for the worse. It is up to Aditya to help his friends get their life and relationship back in order. But can he?

It Started With A Friend Request is more than just a love story. It explores the nuances of basic relationships and exemplifies true friendship, along with portraying base emotions like jealousy, hatred, insecurity and possessiveness, and interweaving a story of unrequited love alongside. This novel was published in 2013 and is based on a true story.

There was high expectations from celebrated author Sudeep Nagarkar and he lives up to expectations. A book of life, love n friendship

It started with a friend request leaves a big smile on your face after closing the book. All the while you think whats gonna happen next and this makes it a extraordinary read. I recently read Ravinder Singhs book but it sucked big time with all hype.

Sudeep Nagarkar's this book released with very big hype and I think this is the most hyped book of the year but I was really glad and happy that book lived to all the expectations. Indeed it takes every emotion to one level higher. Sudeep has written a masterpiece. This book will do wonders and no wonder it is already on bestsellers not only...

Sudeep Nagarkar's this book released with very big hype and I think this is the most hyped book of the year but I was really glad and happy that book lived to all the expectations. Indeed it takes every emotion to one level higher. Sudeep has written a masterpiece. This book will do wonders and no wonder it is already on bestsellers not only in stores on first day but also on flipkart. Flipkart delivery is super quick. Love you flipkart.

My take on book why it becomes a must read

1. Very well written introduction of all the characters and how they land up meeting or seeing each other in the lounge is something never seen before in any novel.

2. The way Akash proposes Aleesha is what I always wanted in my life. Its not the usual way of saying I love you or some here and there incident. The propose is something which is very trendy and gives you goosebumps when it ends.

3. The incident where Akash enters girls hostel to meet Aleesha is again superbly written and gives you a thrilling experience.

4. Corporate atyachar is shown beautifully in it and the humorous speech by Deep is sexy.

5. The corporate environment with all the pressures and work load for a single girl is very well described.

6. After half book the story takes unbelievable turn and a death changes everything. Wow this makes it the best book of the year. This makes you realize how cruel this world is and how a true friend can actually save you from hell.

7. The book is not at all dragged and makes you wanting for more at the end. Worth money and a recommended read.

Thanks Sudeep and the one who published it and also a special thanks to flipkart for giving me author sign copy. It was a great experience to read this one.

Please skip

my 1st biggest mistake was buying this book and the 2nd mistake was reading it.
I found this book boring and the story - an absolute no-brainer. The author seems to be heavily influenced by bollywood movies and some hindi romantic trashy serials. The story starts-off well and goes into a downward spiral within a couple of chapters.
The feeling between the characters seems to be lust rather than love. The lead girl character is very immature and the dialogues between the characters, including the messages feel filmy and surreal.

The feeling between the characters seems to be lust rather than love. The lead girl character is very immature and the dialogues between the characters, including the messages feel filmy and surreal.
Even the twist at the end of the story can't help to its cause. The girl magically changes course from BMM to BMS by end of the story.
The book is likeable to those who like reading no-brainers and are fan of Vampire Diaries or girls in their early teens.
My advice to fellow bookworms - please skip it..

A lovely experience and will suggest this book to all my friends. A must read for everyone. It has everything for everyone in it. A monsoon book for sure this year.

An awesome story. I liked it.

This is an awesoome story. I liked it. A story of love and etc etc. Those who have romantic feelings can go for it and read it. But those who does not have, can also read it and find it good. If you don't believe, then do believe because I, without any interest in these bullshit called love, read... (View complete review)

Trash; and boring

The writer, while being in a conflict between writing in a first person and a third person, gives a reflection of being an amateur, I'm sorry to admit to this. While he writes the story, he describes it in a first person, and when he goes to the love making scenes of his friend, he switches to th... (View complete review)

A book full of excitement

Akash and Aleesha are on my mind..what a story! It shows how every boy behaves in love and how every girl over reacts in every other incidents.. But in all Love is all about being with THAT GIRL.. Hats off to the author. (View complete review)
