Sorry You're Not My Type by Sudeep Nagarkar (Book Review-4.5*/5)!!!

1042nd BLOG POST -->>

          The famous authors in India make their own genre and keeps on writing about it all their career. This gives them a basic reader base that remains loyal as that's the only genre they read. Its very hard for a new author to make his way into one of these genres that already has a King ruling the Jungle. Kudos to Sudeep Nagarkar that he made his place in the Romance section even when Chetan Bhagat and likes of Ravinder Singh were ruling it. Today, Sudeep N is the most read and sold novelist from Random House Publication, the 2nd biggest Publisher in India. Chetan Bhagat's last novel came almost 3 years back. Sudeep Nagarkar utilized this period in making his own benchmark by publishing each of his novel at the gap of 8 months. Today, his readers wait for his next novel desperately. Interestingly, he is improving with every book of his. He is already 4 novels old.


A story of one of the reputed Delhi based college music band!! Vikrant, Anamika and Yuvi will make you believe 'When your passion and purpose is greater than your fears, you find a way to overcome them. A story of Aditya will highlight the true aspects of life as in every boy’s life, there is a girl he’ll never forget and in every girl’s life, there is a boy she’ll never forget!!

All relationships should come with a precautionary warning: HANDLE WITH CARE

The final audition for Rajhans College’s prestigious music band brings together three contrasting personalities. Vikrant, a perfectionist, who believes there is only one perfect someone for you. Anamika, a free spirit, who stands up for what she believes is right. And Yuvi, a die-hard music lover, who can strum the guitar all night long and still wake up the next morning to drop off his girlfriend. 

The three become close friends and start hanging out regularly. So how does Aditya, a stranger, become familiar to their lives? And what happens next?

"Sorry You’re Not My Type" is a true story that will redefine friendship, affection, and infatuation.


His all books are inspired from real life incidents and continue to top the bestseller charts. He was listed in ‘Celebrity Author of 2013’ by one of the biggest online portal Amazon. He was also awarded with ‘Youth Achievers award’ in 2013.
   There are some average authors with whom I have a wonderful connect that I end up reading every book released by them and keep giving 3 or 3.5 out of 5 in my ratings. Confessedly, Sudeep Nagarkar, though a Bestseller since his first book, was considered an average writer to me, but not any more after reading his latest flick "Sorry You're Not my Type". I am finally proud of him the way he has scaled up with this book. What a performance! Incredible! It seemed as if I was reading one of those writers who build a story around characters and make their book look everyone's story and not of just one protagonist. This is what Sudeep unlocked with this one. Now, I would say it will become a pressure for himself to keep the expectations fulfilled of his readers in future.

           When I started reading this book, I thought it would be same stuff of 3 friends in a rock band struggling to make their mark and splitting come later on and again collaborating together in the end and rocking the stage. But suddenly the book changes into something as divine as a love story, character of each person, association of everyone with each other, decisions, mistakes, correction, motivation and survival. Each and every word written to describe each and every scene is out of the box. I often accuse writers of downgrading themselves by highlighting few of their paragraphs and disappointing by not writing it as effective as needed. But every italic paragraph in this book leaves a mark in your brain. It clearly tells you how controlled you should be when you get emotional and possessive about someone.

            Book covers just 2 years of life of these 3 friends and covers so much of philosophy and content in it that it feels you have read a book about how to value people through out your life. How a small trip changes every thing for these 3 friends and other 2 included is an astonishing experience. In the anti-climax and climax, with each sentence, Sudeep Nagarkar kept on raising his bar of standard and as I ended reading the last sentence, I wanted to call him and ask to write another book for me within an hour and send me as I wanted more of him. Even the way he described intimate moments between his characters is ravishing. A rape scene that is described as a theme at one moment is also explained as it contains whole life of a girl and unbelievably, that's the only piece I have read till date written to make me stand up and clap for the author's imagination, purity and excellence. 

           His first book got 3 from me, second got 2.5, third got 3.5 and now, his 4th book gets 4.5/5. YES! You hear it right. But Sudeep, be aware from now. I have high expectations from you in future.
