MY REVIEW :
“Paperback Dreams” is totally an amazing book by Rahul Saini. The blurb of the book was quite interesting and totally describes the truth. The book contains story of three writers who got published from the same publisher. Meet Oberoi, Rohit Sachdev and Karin Mukharjee are the main characters of the novel. Rohit, who apart from being a writer also joins the job of assistant professor. Rohit is being cheated by his publisher. He is not paid the real royalties, he earn for his book. Rohit’s girlfriend Nisha explains him to fight with the publisher and confront him or atleast write a mail to him. Nisha’s point of view sounds negative but she is quite practical in her life. Rahul has very well showed the real scenario of what is happening in today’s world. Rohit was a very honest and hard working guy. Karun was the guy like most of the people of today’s time. Two side face are so common in today’s time. Jeet and
Neeti were another set of writers whose event were almost covered everywhere. They both were the famous one. Rohit’s most ill mannered student on the first day became his roommate and proved to be the best thing in his life. In short, the book was quite an interesting read with realities as we see around. The language was easy and one would not get bored for sure. The only suggestions to the people reading this review that if you have both the books of Rahul’s Saini i.e Paperback Dreams and Just For You prefer reading Paperback Dreams first.
