    Official Flipkart Review

    Publishing has come a long way in the country. From only selective authors getting published to everyone being able to write and get published, given the sale value. Paperback Dreams is all about aspiring writers, writers who have been around and writers who are one-book old and struggling with the second book. Having said that, the book is far from a sweet read as you might think of it to be. It begins to get cut-throat and in its own witty manner, speaks of the world throwing some hints here and there.

    Rohit has a grudge to hold with his publisher. Jeet has to come up with a second book and doesnt know how. This is after publishing his first, with unfair means. Karun, who is only sixteen and has already written his book and but of course will go to any length to be popular, for the love of his life. These and the secondary characters make for some fast reading. The book of course seems to have been targeted at aspiring writers and yet it is meant for all. A nice refreshing read on the publishing business of India not in entirety of course, but a slice of life nonetheless.How low will you stoop to fulfill your dreams?

    Description

    Jeet Roy, a college Casanova, has published a book by unfair means. All he wants is to earn loads of money and have hot girls chase after him wherever he goes. Rohit Sehdev, a one book old popular fiction writer is furious when he finds out that his publisher has cheated him out of his royalties. Karun Ahuja is a highly ambitious schoolboy who wants to win the heart his lady love by writing a novel about it and he doesnt mind playing dirty to get to the top. Ruthlessly exploiting these ambitious young men is their unscrupulous publisher. Sometimes funny, sometimes shocking, Paperback Dreams is the story of a new breed of young writers who will do anything to get famous, fast.

    crazy scandals and exciting tales

    Review of Paperback Dreams:
    "Paperback Dreams" has something for everyone (in adulthood). 3 parallel stories of 3 different characters from the same profession is interwoven very interestingly. Mind-binding story that makes you stick to it as it has lots of hidden twist & surprises (which the readers can't even think of), focuses on real ups & downs in the lives of today's generation's romance - instant breakups & patchup, casual sex and fun. Thoughts of the characters: Rohit Sehdev, Nisha & ...

    loved it!

    I loved the characters, the plot, the narration..but the best thing about Paperback dreams was the idea of running three parallel stories together, which kept me glued to it until I was finished.
    A MUST READ!

    Simply classy!

    Rahul Saini's observant mind has brought out yet another wonderful piece of narration for his readers. What strikes the most is the excellent storytelling technique, easy to understand and relish even by a layman. The stories connect well with our day-to-day dealings which catch the frenzy of the readers. A straight-from-the-heart modern-day well knitted bunch of stories. Must read!

    Good one. Must read if having a bad day. Will make your day.

    Rahul Saini's Paperback Dreams a recently launched books is must read for all those people who like light - hearted stories with a pinch of romance, comedy and evil plans. While reading this book I had a constant smile on my face. The story is about three authors and their relationship with their publishers. This book not only entertains you like a masala movie but it also conveys some life - dealing messages like, in the end no matter how bad your day has or no matter how harsh life has been...

    gripping one

    This book is abt three men Rohit, Jeet and Karun...
    What I observed is Rohit, whom I believe is Rahul Saini himself is very ethical...I'm very proud of you for your thoughts.........writers like him are very few in number..
    Jeet represents the larger community of unethical, I-will-do-anything-to-get-published writers while Karun is ready to stoop any low to become famous
    I loved Nisha and Rohit's chemistry
    I must say Pranav's relationship with a teacher shows how a teacher can influence stude...

    Paperback Dreams!!! Very light and easy reading.Loved reading it. I found Rohit's character the best in this. Too hilarious when he interacts with his students. Very well expressed emotions. A story about three friends has a good space for romance too. It's a must read.

    Quick and simple

    Paperback dreams are about 3 young authors who voyage is through the dirty games of publishing industry in India. The book give an insight of how the “publishing couch” works and young authors cheat each other. First person narrative of three characters holds the readers to book with its twist and turns. On a readers perspective it’s a light read but a five hour super entertainment. Scandals, Betrayals, sex, love, greed, ambition are narrated with simple words. The book also indirectly point ...

    The art of writing...err ...without writing

    The first instinct: The BIG question you will ask yourself at the end of this read: Does the end really justify the means?
    On the face of it, the art of writing is the center piece of this interesting read. But is that all there is to it? Not quite. The first time I lay my hands on the book and read the brief, I asked myself, "Can writing a book or rather the art of writing be so powerful?"
    Did the book answer my questions? Well every bit of it and much more!

    The tale of 3 characters, the...
