    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).

    #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 Even superseded my own expctations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 Even superseded my own expctations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...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.
