    Book review from shaivikafunda

    An impressive debut from Siddharth, the book keeps one laughing till the end, as it takes one on a journey to adolescence, where we all had our share of silly, embarrassing moments.

    Outstanding purchase - worth every penny

    There is no such thing as a first time writer. There are only good and average writers. Siddharth Tripathi makes a confident debut in the former category.
    'The Virgins' grabbed my attention from the first line, and didn't let go till the very end. While there are many books about growing up, this one actually captures that one moment, that one decision, one realization which catapults you from the innocence within to the reality outside.
    The characters are well sketched out, and early on in...

    One City …Three Friends…Many Characters…Innumerable Fun Moments..

    The Virgins, authored by Siddharth Tripathi, has a compelling story line up which has been put across beautifully. The underbelly of Varanasi is shown in a way that you end up wanting more of Varanasi as well as the story. The cast, and the crazy characters, which manages to get itself into weirdest of situations adds spice from the beginning till the end.

    The story essentially revolves around the teenage aspirations and the way they poise themselves to attain them. The enthusiasm in the ch...

    Hang out with the bad elements of schooling days and witness more

    During the later stages of schooling, I avoided befriending certain boys famously known as bad elements or bad influences. These are those boys who were busy exploring the prohibited stuffs: Smoke, Alcohol, Adult movies, Fights... I did stay away from them to secure my future. But surely I did miss out those experiences. By this novel, Siddharth had helped me to experience the hanging out with the bad elements in the school. The author goes beyond those experiences to tell us something darker...

    Breezy engrossing read

    The book is a real page turner, you relate to multiple characters at different levels and are always interested in how their destinies pan out right till the very end. The book flows effortlessly and the humor doesn't appear forced. An encouraging debut from a sparkling talent.

    A new genre of Indian fiction

    The primary highlight of the book lies in its authentic, raw and refreshing new style of narration. The characters are original and unique.
    The author has captured the story of regular Benarasi boys in a compelling fashion and a night reading this book will take you on a Quentin Tarantino-cum-Tim Burton-cum-Gangs of Wasseypur adventure.
    Disclaimer : The sense of humor is meant only for advanced minds, read between the lines. If your'e incapable of that, skip it. ;)

    how not to fall into chetan bhagat stereotype

    Went through a compelling experience of reading "the virgins"....compelling, because, i had plans to read it later...but a casual browse through the first few pages after delivery compelled me to devour it up whole...shelving my other scorch-close commitments...

    And I am caught off-guard....just when it appeared to be another chetan-bhagat style mood-refreshing but otherwise pulp-fiction, it turned out to be deeper, darker...un-self-consciously maturer....forging through subterranean chann...

    A Walk Down Memory Lane

    The light, breezy (and selectively cynical) tone of the author does not prepare you for the depth of emotion and nostalgia one feels after warming up to the characters and the events that unfold in the story.

    Though this story is based in Benaras, one can easily relate to the characters and their quirks…. The power games in school and in teenage society, the “signature words” used by teenage boys (and girls), the deep exhilaration of adolescent “love” and of course, the obsession with “beco...
