    Description

    Half Girlfriend is the much-awaited novel by the famous Indian novelist, Chetan Bhagat. It delves into new and different dimensions that relationships have in today’s world.

    Summary of the Book

    Madhav is a Bihari boy with big dreams who falls in love with the beautiful Riya, a rich lass from Delhi. There are some fundamental differences between the two. Madhav’s English isn’t all that great, but Riya speaks the best English. Madhav wants Riya to be his girlfriend but Riya disagrees. She wants them to be just friends but he definitely wants more. Riya finally comes up with a suggestion, a compromise – she agrees to become his half-girlfriend! Chetan Bhagat presents a simple and beautiful love story that will move you with all the nuances of a modern-day relationship. It also inspires you to realize your individual dreams.

    #cmpleted Half Grlfrnd in les dan 8 hours. Even superseded my own expctations

    #cmpleted Half Grlfrnd in les dan 8 hours. Even superseded my own expctations


    Not so good... worst novel of CB yet..

    The good thing about it is that You don't get the feeling of reading a novel....its like watching a Bollywood ghatiya movie..
    And the bad thing is also the same...you don't at all get the feel of a novel...like other cb novels had...
    Novel should be a novel...not a movie script..

    There is no excitement happiness or sadness because one already knows what will happen as it is...

    Time pass Masala.

    This book is just a time pass which is full of Masala..i would suggest you to watch a bollywood movie instead of wasting your time reading this crap.

    Lack of originality

    Well, I am pretty sure Chetan Bhagat writes these days stories with a perspective that it will be adapted into a masala movie sooner or later. And Half Girlfriend is no exception. The filmy storyline, the slow predictable ending, the same old friends turn into couple relationship (which has been repeated in most of the CB books) etc etc. Having finished the book within a day, i felt like it was a day wasted. Nonetheless people looking for die hard romantic books can try this one.

    Bad Book

    Flipkart's service was as usually amazing. I got the book on the release day, 7 am in the morning!!
    But the book is a departure from Chetan's earlier works. He is clearly writing for bollywood producers now. The plot and all the twists and turns are very much forced and the story has too many loopholes. You wont be able to relate with the protagonists and both of them came across rather dumb to me. I love Five Point Someone, 3 Mistakes and 2 states, but Chetan has derailed now.

    What is this?

    Ever since writing 2 States, Chetan Bhagat has struggled badly to write another novel that is equally gripping or exciting. Half Girlfriend reads and feels like something a first-time writer would produce. I'm not at all happy with it. Thumbs down!

    Why cannot we give "ZERO" rating to this book?

    Every time Chetan Bhagat writes a new book, he makes sure that it's worse than previous one. He has now started writing in a way that story of novel can be sold as masala bollywood movie. Bought this book to give it a try but now I regret wasting my money over it. Saddest thing is that he has lots of fans who really like his books. Finally he gets huge sells. It motivates all other budding writers to write shitty love stories and earn money. Thank you CB for ruining future of Indian literature.

    Typical Bollywood Script

    I was waiting for this book since august..... Finally got my copy on d release day. Thanks to flipkart. But Half Girlfriend has not even met half expectations. I guess CB has started writing only for bollywood movie. Not happy with the book.

    Worst novel of CB

    Chetan Bhagat was once my favorite Indian contemporary novelists after I read his "Five Point Someone" and "3 Mistakes of My Life". But this "Half-Girlfriend" has disappointed me like hell. Too melodramatic, too much fate oriented and at times, unrealistic. Please do not waste your money on this product.

    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...
