    Description
    So Lord Vishnu showed up one morning when I was really stoned and asked me to save the world from turning undead. How did I save the world? I didnt. We did. And while saving the world, I got to forcefully kiss the girl of my dreams. Many times. My best friends got to smoke a lot of good shit. A lot more than they would have otherwise smoked in that much time. They also got to crash an airplane into a slum outside Santacruz airport. But dont worry, there were only zombies around when that happened. We were joined in our quest by two Japanese girls who can kill people with their pinkies, one of whom forcefully kissed Danny. Yes, there was a lot of non-consensual kissing in this adventure. With tongue. Hi. Im Nikhil. This is my story. And I swear I have a T-shirt to prove it.

    A Racy Expression of a "Toke" that would leave the reader boisterously stoned...

    It had been quite some time that I laid my hands on a piece of fiction. Toke took me into a rather different journey, which I am sure, many of my friends would read, nay revel, in their own dream-sequences.

    Each character is someone whom we might readily or remotely identify in our youthful brash days. The racy storyline weaves the reader's own world of unexpressed rebellion and action, unspoken love and its pain, unidentified levels of friendship - and of course, an opportunity to be part o...

    Great Idea

    Jugal Mody's "Toke" is an unapologetic slam-bam adventure into the unknown, with lots (I really mean lots) of the good stuff. The language is irreverent without descending into complete text-speak; and the characters are very human, without turning into complete losers.
    The template of the story, or the characters, follows a lot of modern Indian fiction about young adults. Young protagonist with a mundane day-job, larger than life rebel friend(s) of the protagonist, an unattainable lead lady,...

    An Impressive First!

    I like books that have happy endings. Books that let deemed superheros retain their superhero powers. In between, I don't mind crows who toke, some psychedelic events and Japanese. IMO, a book cannot catch your interest unless 1. You come across a fact that was all there but you didn't know and 2. Some true incident you relate to. In this book, 1. Green Day and 2. The AC duct incident. And like in every apocalyptic turn of events, you fly a plane! Keeps you gripped in a 8-bit mode. Jugal Mod...

    Real Fiction

    Indian writing in English is sometimes too caught up with the need to be profound and serious and important. Beyond a point, you come to anticipate the plots, the twists, the angst. And when fiction becomes predictable you know that it needs a change, a fresh perspective. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Toke by Jugal Mody a book that will be instrumental in steering Indian fiction in a new direction. And it's not some jingoistic rhetoric, I mean it.

    Here's what's fabulous about it - t...

    a gazumped ride into oblivion

    this book was a revelation for me. As a kid brought up with a strict moral codes and a hereditary aversion to 'Drugs'; getting a book written on a taboo topic that can actually do good in the world was a find!!!
    It's a roller-coaster ride that requires imagination from the reader; the more imaginatively challenged might find Toke an awful bore and difficult to relate to.

    Totally Worthless...

    The idea of a modernised great God like Vishnu (as illustrated in the cover) choosing three stoned guys to save the world: this is the outline of the book and was the main reason I grabbed it from the local book store. But this book can be qualified as the most worthless one I've ever read in my life (and I've read quite a few). It looked to me as if the author watched some very famous Hollywood zombie and sci-fi movies and Chinese kung-fu movies while on drugs and penned this, all in one nig...

    Save your cash

    I hope the gentleman who recommended this book to me dies a medieval death. Oh my gaaawd this was so tedious! Don't be conned by the blurb or the 8bit cover art, smoking boot polish has more redeeming features than this slushy pile of hog excreta. Put your 100 bucks to better use.

    Waste of time...

    One of the most poorly structured book I have ever read, no I'm not talking about the flow of the book (which the author cleverly covered up, citing the reference of a 'high'induced pattern), I'm talking about the basic thing called - Story telling !

    Very disappointing book. If this is humor then God help us all.

    Joint Jaunt

    A joint venture of Harper collins, and India today, for the junkies, of the junkies images of Hallucinations, wrapped up in a lame attempt of mythological thriller but maybe the author forgot about it when he came out of the drug induced haze.
    I am giving it a single star simply because the site does not allow me to give less.
