    Description

    Losing My Virginity And Other Dumb Ideas is a debut novel by Madhuri Banerjee, a media professional and national award winner. The protagonist of the book is a single woman, who on reaching the age of thirty is on a mission to figure out her love life that has eluded her all this while. How she discovers herself in the process of finding that one great love is the plot of this novel.

    Summary Of The Book

    Kaveri, the protagonist of the novel, is a 29-year-old, who is soon turning 30. She is a single woman who is in search of her true love that has eluded her this far. She is an interpreter by profession and has mastered seven languages. She has read many books on men and how to land a date, yet she struggles to find a perfect partner. Her friend Aditi, who is quite experienced in terms of love and relationships, offers to help her by arranging dates for Kaveri.

    After a slew of unsuccessful dates, she does finally end up in a relationship, which is kind of ephemeral with the man, but true and eternal with her own self. The plot of the novel progressively moves from Kaveri being a lonely 30-year-old single woman, who is going through the roller coaster ride of a romantic relationship, to her discovering her own individuality.

    Madhuri Banerjee’s debut novel Losing My Virginity And Other Dumb Ideas is a work of fiction that has appealed to many women. It was published in the year 2011. The book records the journey of the female protagonist through her various failed dates until she discovers the need to love herself.

    Although the title of the novel is conclusive, the book is about discovering and loving one’s self, and to be able to understand one’s fears and desires. The novel has two complete sequels, and this is Asia’s first female trilogy, as quoted by the author to a leading Indian newspaper, The Hindu.

    One of the worst books I've read

    Its been whole lot of waste of time in reading this book since I kept on expecting that there would be something interesting to read. In short, its a low-grade book available on road-side shops with a fancy cover.
    Please do some useful work instead of reading this book.

    i want my money back! (continued)

    * s3x in the baloon: did i just read the porn version of Goosebumps? Einstein quoted that "imagination is more powerful than knowledge," but he certainly forgot to quip- "the imagination of women is more powerful than imagination itself."

    * all in all, it was a 'Mad Bane' experience (abbreviating the author's name)

    project summary: i want my money back. i shall magnanimously "let go" the time being invested in reading the book.

    Waste Of Time

    The Book does nothing new .
    Simple Story of acceptance and rejection.
    And as the title says "Dumb Ideas", I felt ordering this book was a dumb idea from my side .

    Total waste of time and money

    For starters, nobody should waste money on this book because it has a dumb, pathetic, filmy, trashy, sub-standard storyline. The book, in no way, enriches the reader; the story does not stay with the reader once he/she is done reading it

    I am not going to give a synopsis for the book for the simple reason that I don't even remember the damn dumb story.

    And secondly, nobody should waste a single moment of their lives on this piece of trash. God knows why I purchased this book.

    Waste of money...

    one of the worst books i have read.....especially for an Indian scenario, its worst. The title made me think that the book would be fun to read but no connection at all...it would be better if the title would be 'how desperately I wanted to have sex'...

    Quick Read

    "Losing My Virginity & Other Dumb Ideas" - by Madhuri Banerjee, is a nice book for a leisure read. The language used is moderately good & there are clutches of Non-English words to make the story more appealing & easier to understand. I perceived the story all-together on a different plane wherein I can comprehend it to the worldly thoughts. Overall, it is a nice book!

    Interesting title, abominable content

    I was interested in reading this book and now I know I was fooled by the title. The story is in no way of good literary taste, quite the contrary. Very similar to the cheap bollywood movies that try to sell only on the basis of sex content.

    National Best Seller!

    Indeed, and which nation are we talking about? If Shobhaa De and Sushmita Sen are praising it...it must be...INDIA. Nice joke.
    The narrative is rich enough to keep you engaged, but the story line didn't quite work for me.
