    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.

    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!

    A Book Absolutely with Viewpoint of a Woman

    I read the book because I had to, after knowing that it is the prequel to Mistakes Like Love and Sex. The book starts with the ordinary life of Kaveri who is 30 yet virgin. She is unsure of her life and unaware of her dreams. She has seen the world and speaks seven different languages, she is confident and possesses all the qualities an average successful girl should have. Yet there is something that is missing inside her.

    The story is woven around the protagonist Kaveri. Basically showing t...

    Somewhat a blend of maturity,quirkiness,Predictability and a Bollywood Story.

    The story triggers with a interesting and binding path but with the passage of time deviates from its fine narration and leads to obscure and kind of a bollywood storyline.
    The idea is good but it lacks content and flow and the result is that predictable things go on and on with nothing interesting to bind the readers to the story.
    U may realise that the story was moulded in such a way so that a sequel can be written for it.
    As Madhuri Banerjee writes screenplay for Bollywood movies the same...

    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.

    Worst book I have read

    This book is the worst I ever read. Picked a copy to read on my long flight but had to seriously stop reading it midway. The brief at the back of the book, made me feel that it is a humour filled story. But it hardly has any humour to offer. The female protagonist who is thirty, leads a single life and is a virgin. But once she sheds her virginity, she just ends up having physical relationships with all men whom she meets in her life. First of all, there is no story in this so called fiction....
