    I'll make my sisters squirm like well-salted earthworms. I won't sell. Even my jutti wont sell. And if I die na, then even my gosht won't sell!

    The late Binodini Thakur had been very clear that she would never agree to sell her hissa in her Bauji's big old house on Hailey Road. And her daughter Bonu, is determined to honor her mothers wishes.

    But what to do about her four pushy aunts who are insisting she sell? One is bald and stingy, one is jobless and manless, one needs the money to 'save the nation' and one is stepmother to Bonus childhood crush-brilliant young Bollywood director Samar Vir Singh, who promised BJ upon his deathbed that he would get the house sold, divvy the money equally and end all the bickering within the family.

    The first word baby Bonu ever spoke was 'Balls' and indeed, she is ballsy, bullshit-intolerant, brave and beautiful.

    But is she strong enough to weather emotional blackmail by the spadefull? Not to mention shady builders, wily politicians, spies, lies and the knee-buckling hotness of Samars intense eyes?

    Sharply observed and pulse-quickeningly romantic, this is Anuja Chauhan writing at her sparkling best!

    Like you are watching a Bollywood movie.

    Previous novel of this young, brilliant and brace lady which I read was 'Zoya factor'. Her writings are filled with witty one liners, having INDIAN touch, fun filled, sexy anecdotes and very soft romance that will make you to quiver for more.
    Here she has very carefully build characters and engraved them in a plot which doesn't have a thrilling or suspense at end but all expected from very first pages.
    Playing justice to so many characters, those Pricey Thakur Girls, their extended family, ...

    The House that B.J. Built thoughts

    It was the first time I was reading the work of Anuja Chauhan and she has made a fan in me.
    Even though it's a sequel to 'Those Pricey Thakur Girls' it stand out on it's own. Having nver read that I was never lost. You can absolutely enjoy this without the prequel, though I would recommend you pick that first it will make the experience much more enjoyable.

    Now to the story I think I was hooked 6-7 or pages in and never lost interest in the story. It has all the ingredients that make a stor...

    Value-for-money

    I simply love Anuja chauhan's writing. I re read her books because of the fantastic writing, humour and ofcourse the indianized English...her books makes you start believing in the old family ties again and the craziness of Indian families.
    In this book the love story could have been evolved a little bit more like D for Dylan and Debjani but chalo it's ok. The supporting cast was amazing and I truly believe that BJ's house was worth all the efforts taken by the pricey Thakur girls....

    A fun read with serious thought provoking note

    The House That BJ Built is the sequel of the bestselling novel Those Pricey Thakur Girls by Anuja Chauhan. The sequel is more about Bonu Singh (daughter of Late Binodini Singh) and Samar Vir Singh (stepson of Anjini Singh). The wavering feeling of the step cousins for each other, the problems they face, the solution they imply all are rendered seamlessly.

    Highlights

    The character build up of Bonu and Samar is so perfect that we can envisage them. Every minute details are taken care of imp...

    Worth Reading

    I had borrowed ‘The Pricey Thakur Girls’ from a friend and had enjoyed the reading experience of it. So it was a no-brainer that I would pick this book up too. Only this time I delved into the book with some expectations.

    The Thakur girls are back and this book is all about how the family wants to sell the house that BJ built. While the central plot deals with that, there are parallel storylines involving the central characters. On one hand we have Samar’s journey of making a film and on the...

    As promised, the story is all about the house that BJ built and if those pricey Thakur girls sell the house or not. In spite of 410 pages, Anuja Chauhan startles the reader with several twists and turns. The narrative is lucid and incidents are quirky. Dialogs are relatable and characters have shades of grey – neither godly nor villainous. There is a splendid Bollywood movie-like charm about the book. It lets the reader envision not only the backdrop but the characters as well.

    Quality Product at Reasonable Price

    Quality product and reasonably priced. About the story - worth a read. Hilarious & witty though Anuja had done better work earlier. I was unable to put the book down and finished it at one go!! Of course husband had to do a take away too busy reading it and no time for kitchen duties

    Family Drama in Ancestral Property division

    The House That BJ Built simply exceeded my expectations. I received a copy from Flipkart Review Program

    The story revolves around a Family consisting of 5 sisters (Pricey Thakur Girls) who try to sell their ancestral property and run into a series of problems. Family feuds are very common during ancestral property division, hence you can relate to it.

    This novel contains the right elements to be converted into a movie with many unexpected twists.

    I was really impressed with author's style...

    A Dreamland Saga

    I thought that there cld be no other book as mesmerizing than Those Pricey Thakur Girls. But, this was something I would like to witness again and again. Bonu Singh & Samar Vir Singh literally took my breath away. Just loved every word of it. Thanks Anuja Chauhan for such a beautiful rom com novel. I would again say "aur jee aur jee aur jee":)
