    Summary of the Book

    The story of this novel is set in locations such as rural Bihar, New Delhi, Patna, and New York. This is the story of a boy from Bihar who is on a quest to win over the girl he loves. In this book, Chetan Bhagat dives into the sentiments experienced by a backward rural boy who enrols himself at the prestigious English-medium St. Stephen’s College, New Delhi. He then falls in love with a classy English-speaking rich girl from Delhi. He has a major linguistic set back as he doesn't speak English well. The girl does not give in to his attempts but instead agrees to be his "half girlfriend”.

    About the Author

    Born to an Army officer and a government servant, Chetan Bhagat’s destiny to become a writer was far from foreseen. After completing his mechanical engineering from IIT Delhi, Chetan went on to obtain his MBA from the prestigious IIM Ahmedabad. But, it wasn’t until a decade of trying to fit into the corporate way of living when Chetan decided that he needed to dedicate his life to writing. Since then, Chetan has authored several best-selling novels, such as Five Point Someone, The Girl in Room 105 and 2 States, among others. Not only did Chetan’s works inspire some hit films, such as Kai Po Che, 2 States and 3 Idiots, but they also helped him get featured in Forbes India magazine as one of the top celebrities of India (2016).

    PATIENCE BEARS SWEET FRUITS

    I finished off with Half Girlfriend of Chetan Bhagat's series...a simple story yet it keeps you glued till the end and the character of Madhav, Riya keeps you on tips as to what holds next... Though Madhav is bit more obsessed with kissing and I believe it is the men who thinks of it more though they don't express so freely as Madhav did at every encounter with Riya and it's natural on part of Riya not to accept his encounters as girls believe and expect more care and praise than just kisses ...

    Typically for Fans and Bollywood Movies.

    # Chetan Bhagat's Novel..You wait, wait and wait.And what you get is a typical Bollywood type story.

    # I am not here describe the summary because I think you all must go through it.

    # The expections for Bhagat's piece is something like Revolution2020.But what HALF GF gives you is a pure Delhi+Bihari story.

    # Bhagat always say there is no hero in his story, his story is itself the hero. Yes it might be true in case of Revolution 2020, Five point Someone. But here he has a Bollywood masala ...

    Half Hearted!

    I received this book as I was told on the release day itself and I am glad. Thanks Flipkart! Keep up the great work!! Well a new Chetan Bhagat Novel in this festival season and on the eve of Man Booker Prize Cermony It's Irony. Wow it's like A new Twilight before the Oscars. Coming to the book, well it's your typical Chetan Bhagat novel with all the drama in the campus (Mr. Bhagat had shifted from his focus to the St.Stephen's in the case unlke his usual IITs) , childish love, and cardboard c...

    Half Girlfriend - Another Bollywood Movie Script

    CB's Fan? No. Read Half Girlfriend? Yes.

    CB's novels are like Khan movies or Vijay movies. No one likes it, but everyone sees it. Likewise I don't like his writing, but given the publicity and marketing I end up buying it or pre ordering it and reading it in a week after its release.

    Half Girlfriend, CB's latest novel or that's what he says is actually another Bollywood movie script.

    CB's interesting novels till date is Five Point Someone, it was really funny. And, One Night at the Call C...

    Coming of age

    When I started reading Half Girlfriend this afternoon I thought - "Well, here we go again.." but as Chetan himself admits, his writing has changed and how! I believe Half Girlfriend is a coming of age book for Chetan Bhagat. It retains the guilty pleasure feel from his earlier novels while providing some insightful commentary about rural education, English, development, politics and love reminiscent of his editorials. The commentary is centered around the protagonist Madhav and Bihar but is g...

    Too lame to the start & too filmy to the end!!

    One up on a time, Their was a decent writer, Chetan Bhagat, who was self-proclaimed Indian writer who know the Pulse. We also loved his books. But then, content and logic in his books started degrading just like the digits in his book titles, and with this new book it has come down to "HALF". The 260 pages which are more of a screenplay of a Bollywood movie, hardly engage you in reading. A loser protagonist and a high class female character. The love story between them is being projected as ...
