How to woo a girl

Finding Juliet is the story of Arjun. Arjun is a simple guy with romantic ideas. He has some girls in his life. But all of them, except  Anjali, dump him before he can take the matters forward. Anjali is his loyal friend. 

Then he moves to Bangalore. Krish, who works in his office, becomes his love guru. Soon our simple Arjun turns into a sex god. His relationship with all the girls is of no strings attached, friends with benefits kind. 

However soon he realizes the futility of all and finds true love in Anjali. The following words by Krish summarize the novel. “Lust satisfies the needs of your body and ego, but it does nothing for your soul, because soul is nourished by the pristine happiness that comes with pure love.”

The author weaves real to life people, moments and even relationships. This novel is as much about lust as it is about love. The author juggles between these two successfully. It is indeed his success that the novel no where appears vulgar. The story is gripping and interesting. It will remind you of your relationships.

However what I did not like about the novel is that it reinforces the stereo types that good girls, who form the marriage material, do not sleep around and a guy should have as many sex encounters as he can before he settles down with a girl.

Yet this novel is entertaining. You will have a great time reading it.
