    Description
    They called what they had lost the angels share. They believed that the angels would take a little of their drink and, in exchange, bless the rest of it with a celestial flavour.

    Zorawar Chauhan lives two lives. In one, he has the big- money corporate law job he used to dream of. To the young lawyer, the world tenders an endless promise of wealth and privilege. In the other life the one in his head he is haunted by the ghosts of a past from which he is not yet free. He relives his life on the colourful campus of the National Law School, Bangalore the football, the drugs, the falling in and out of love, getting into trouble, learning tough lessons. And above all, he remembers the loss of his friend, the charismatic Sasha Kapur.

    Relentlessly honest about being young and ambitious in India, The Angels Share is a dark and funny story of loss and wisdom-come-late.

    Definitely worth a read

    Something that would usually put me off a quintessential "campus" novel is that it is relevant only to the limited group of people from that specific institution, and that it is too much off an "outside" and "dated" view, the authors of such novels usually looking back on their lives 10-15 years after graduating.

    The Angel's Share is contemporary, is relevant to anyone who's lived in a residential college (or not - you'll know what u missed), and is a quick, enjoyable read. One finds it eas...

    Sweet Valley for Boys!

    The book held my attention in the first 3 chapters where the author introduces the law school, his friends, relationships, aspirations, etc. However, description of the author's experiences are limited to his "group of friends" about whom he is negative most of the time. This would surely not be a good book to rely on if one is looking to get an insight into the life in a residential hostel. Even if you skip a few chapters, there is not much to miss. Repetitive and childish view on life. Howe...

    I enjoyed it very much.

    (Disclaimer: I know the author)

    I enjoyed the Angel's Share tremendously. It's well written, fast moving and interesting.

    Above all, in its description of college life, it's insightful. If you're looking for a book that describes a typical college experience with everything that is awesome and everything that can, and often does, go horrifically wrong, this is it. At the end of this book I wasn't sure if I was relieved that college didn't look like this for me, or upset that there were dep...

    Lad-lit

    This is not a horrible book, but it doesn't really inspire, entertain or enlighten - and surely, a good book should do at least one of these. If the author felt that he had a story that needed to be told, and I think he did, he has done himself a great disservice with this book, for sometimes, it serves well to distance yourself from the events of your life to really capture the essence of what happened - a la Of Human Bondage.

    The book feels like a collection of isolated incidents and is h...

    An Accomplished Debut

    The Angels Share is a deeply engaging debut novel.

    The author writes with a rare honesty and candor about his life as a law student and a young lawyer. The college anecdotes in the book are bittersweet and tender without getting overly maudlin. Most of the supporting cast of characters are well developed and believable.

    The best bit about the book is the author's evident love for good music (and football). The chapters of the book are named after song titles - I had almost as much fun fin...

    Very nice!

    If you love "campus" kind of tales, you will love this book. I don't, yet I found this nice. The narrative is mostly a first person account of the protagonist, Zorawar. He sets out to narrate his story about love, longing, friends, career, jobs and ultimately, the quest to find one's purpose in life.

    The novel is a quick read, though the story is deeply philosophical and evocative in parts. The language is extremely slick and contemporary, and many in the younger crowd of India will identify...

    Fine Novel

    This book is only a "campus novel" on the surface, and mostly so because it is set on a campus. It's much more than that. It's a book about loss and learning and the madness of being young. Give it a read - it'll ring truer than most others you've read.
