What does a woman want? Shoes? Nope. Sex? Maybe. Money? Yes but nowadays her own …Hmm, so then what does today’s woman really, really deep, deep down want? Still your breath. LOVE!
And Right Fit Wrong Shoe shall give it to her. The story of Nandini or as her hesitant paramour describes her ‘lassi in a wine glass’ is set in the more-than-just-a-third-world-country’s city, Kanpur. She has been bitten, for better or worse, but definitely bitten, by Bollywood. Her spirit is undefeatable; she mocks certain death (Aditya) and suffers stoically for love (Aditya, again. Go figure!) Her accomplice in all her escapades is Sneha Verma- that one friend we all refer to as BFF, but function with, as chaddi-baniyan (or gracefully put as hand and a glove). The book begins at a point where all love stories end. Dripping with humour and romance, it encases a young woman’s thoughts on the society she survives in.
Varsha Dixit, the best selling author of four successful contemporary romance books. Her debut book, Right Fit Wrong Shoe was a national bestseller for the year 2010. Varsha was a part of the Indian Television Industry and worked as an assistant director and online editor. She considers herself a dreamer who thinks deep but writes light. Even though creativity is gender free,Varsha feels blessed and enriched to be a woman.Currently, with her family, Varsha resides in CA, USA.
Starting with the cover which is very well designed and finished with some tools like shoe and salon water spray which matches with the story and crispiness of the book.
The story is set up in Kanpur. Where the protagonist is working in a advertising agency AAA. The story revolves around Nandini, who is s movie freak and may be rarely had missed to see a new movie. Character like Nandini portrays modern independent women with a touch of Indian culture. She is very strong and a fighter but as we know at a point we all get down on front of destiny, so did Nandini. But Varsha Dixit didn’t let her stay same for the long time
The second major character is Aditya Sarin, an industrialist, foreign return, smart, handsome, intelligent, charming and the most famous bachelor of the nation is the hero of the book. Varsha Dixit has created this character like a coconut, outside tough and rude but very warm, kind and soft inside. In the initial stages he is very kind to Nandini but later he find ways to torture Nandini. At the same time he tries to take care of her in every possible way. There is a reason why Aditya Sarin’s realtion is different from the initial stages to the mid scenes. This suspense only comes at the end of the novel .
Coming to the story which is described in future- past time travelling. Sometimes while dreaming or day dreaming or while narrating to story to other characters Varsha Dixit has explained the past of the characters.
I liked the way Varsha has described the intimate moments by nit making them vulgar and keeping the intimity on. She has used these moments at mandatory places only not at any non mandatory place.
There are lots of bollywood dialogues in the book which gives the book a comic touch. From comedy i can’t forget the moments where Nandini and Aditya are fighting on pity topics. Varsha Dixit has very wisely portrayed those cute moments of a couple.
All the characters are perfectly described with proper attention to every character as per the demand of story. Blurb is short and descriptive. Overall the First Impression of the book is catchy and forces readers to read the content.
At the end i can just say that this book is very good and will keep the reader engrossed. But I wish could have more interest in the story as it could have been better. I liked the way author has kept the essence of suspense on till the last page of the novel.
